Just had a call from Jan and he is in a town called Forrest, south of Chicago, Illionois. That’s a distance of 295 miles from Gibsonburg OH according to Google maps.
He has just filled up with fuel and says he has not had much in the way of rain so far. He passed two motels a short time back but they didn’t have wifi so he is going to ride on a little longer and see if he can find one with broadband.
Good luck love.
