10,000 miles full o' fun. In your state, we saw everything from Mr. Obama and the Sears Tower to Cahokia Mounds and the white squirrels of Olney.
And ate damned good pizza at Larry Bobe's in Lawrenceville. And at Gino's East in Chi-Town.
And crispy pig snouts and a pig ear and pickle sandwich in East St. Louis. The less said about them, the better.
And that was just Illinois. There were 25 other states, too.
