Day 67 - The Home of Popeye

I'm in Chester, IL, a cute town of brick bungalows strung along a bluff, overlooking the Mississippi river. It contains both a prison and a mental institution. Housing people against their will must be very profitable. The small towns that do are often the prettiest, while the ones relying upon other industries have empty Main Streets and boarded-up storefronts.

  1. Hi Chris! I hung out with Sonja yesterday and she told me about your awesome adventure. I don't know if you know this but I recently moved to Oberlin, Ohio just west of Cleveland. If your route takes you anywhere near that part of the country, I insist you stop by for a cold beer from Matt's bar, a warm home cooked meal, and a soft bed. - Heather
