“This is KT and I'm in Springfield! Lisa Simpson says hello. Let's see... the drive up through Arkansas was totally uneventful, although I got a bunch of die-cast Cars toys at Wal-mart when I got to West Memphis.

Then I entered Missouri. The first 48 miles of Missouri are just boring and bland, and then you get to the welcome center. I guess those first 40 miles aren't worth welcoming people to. Then after about 60 miles are a bunch of billboards, telling me to vote vo on Proposition 2 because cloning's bad, and yes on Proposition 3 because it might save a life someday. Uh, Proposition 2's stem cell research grants. And a bunch of anti-abortion ads! And so on.

I bypassed St. Louis by taking 255 and to see how far I could go toward Chicago and I got tired of driving when I drived here In Springfield. Illinois. So! Tomorrow should be a pretty
short drive. And I'll see everyone when I get to the con. Good bye!”

I agree, KT should come back to the real Springfield.

The traffic 55 through downtown is no big deal; the view on your way back is definitely worth it.

Except isn't the bridge that carries 55 and two other routes across the Mississippi some kind of horrible chokepoint? Especially around 5 p.m., when I was in the area?

I'd hardly describe it as horrible. The MO-side ramps that take you to the bridge are one lane and it does slow down, but it only slows down significantly around rush hour(s). Every other time of day it's breezy.

Like I said, it was rush hour when I reached the St. Louis area.

That's good to know, though!

Definitely agree about the view, though; I've seen it on a previous trip.
