We had a late start, work up at 6 but we never left until 8, we weren't as prepared as we thought we were. So when we got to Michigan we started driving for Illinois where we went to Joliet. We wanted to drive on Route 66 until we got to new mexico so we decided to start there. It was a bit hard to follow it since we didn't have a map and not all of the road was there but we managed. We stopped in a lot of small towns like Dwight, Pontiac, Funks Grove, Atlanta and ended up staying the night in Springfield.
While driving along Route 66 just past Atlanta where was the brightest double rainbow I've ever seen. It was simply beautiful!
