Today we arriaved in Springfield a town in Missouri.
A fun thing is that in Illinois there is a town called Springfield to. There is two towns with the exact same name in the states next to each other.
Anyway it was a seven hour and 45 minutes drive from Chicago, the drive went smoothly aside from a flattire but we fixed it in ten minutes and drove on.
I have really fallen in love with our Corvette, everybody says that american cars are famous for their bad quality and bad handeling, but our car it feels diffrent it has a soul to it it has a certain feeling it is a plesaure to drive down the old route 66.
Springdield it was, we arraived here and saw from the first moment that it is a pretty poor area.
16% of the people are living below the poverty line so it is mixed emotions driving trough and seeing all the people fighting for their survival.
We drove by this building, it´s a fascinating building for sure it´s one of six places in the states that take care of prisoners with all sorts of problems, it´s a fascinating building but i think i rather stay and look on it from the outside.
We drove on from springfield along the road.
It´s a shame that route 66 dosen´t exist on modern maps anymore, it would be so much easier for you guys to follow our yourney, but we can´t do anything about it unfortunatley.
Next up Oklahoma city, only a four hour drive there.
