Day 15: Catlin to Decatur IL (80 mi)

Got caught in a little rain storm about 60 miles in, but aside from that a real pleasant morning and afternoon! Thinking about taking one or two off days when I reach St. Louis. It would be a good opportunity to explore a city I otherwise may never visit, and maybe go to a Cardinals game. There's also a youth hostel in the city, and I am in dire need of conversation with kids my age. St. Louis is, by the way, the 1/3 mark for the trip. But hey, who's keeping track...

Tonight's host in Decatur is Phil. He treated me to a dinner out - some great BBQ at a local and independently-operated chain. It's very cool to observe the phasing in and out of different gas stations, fast food joints, etc.
