Mom and I are making plans to drive East next month. Looks like we will possibly be going Route 40 or Route 70. I definitely want to go through Chicago on the way home. Looking for ideas, helpful tips, places to stop (art, used books, and scenery.) Also, if anyone might be interested in scheduling a class on the way to or from the East Coast, if I can do it, I will. Looks like we will be going either Route 40 or 70.
