Four states – sort of – the aftereffect

July 7th, 2015 ·1 Comment

We started out in North Liberty, Iowa, which is in the eastern part of Iowa, just a wee bit north of Interstate 80, and not all that far from the World’s Largest Truck Stop and the Mississippi River. However, when you are driving it, it takes a lot longer than just saying it. You do, though, eventually cross the Mississippi, which is not all that exciting on an Interstate bridge, as opposed to the older steel gridwork bridges that had mesh roadways, through which you could see the river. And some of these bridges didn’t just sit there; they pivoted to let barge traffic through.

And, in front of us, loomed Illinois. That would be the second state and I’ve grown tired remembering it.

    We lived in Coralville when we were in Iowa. If you went down I-80 you drove right past our old house as it was on a hill overlooking the interstate. It was a good house. It was a nice place to live too.
