DAY NINE SUMMARY
Tuesday, July 1, 2003

Topeka, Kansas, was the sidetrip destination of this day. I didn't leave until past 11 in the morning because I was still working on the pictures from the day before. But I still got back just before 4:30. Overall, I drove 247 miles.

DAY EIGHT SUMMARY
Monday, June 30, 2003

On this day, I took a sidetrip to the St. Joseph area, and drove both directions of Interstate 229 from end-to-end. The interstate runs directly along the Missouri River for a couple miles near downtown. It is a double-decker highway by the river, with the northbound lanes on top and the southbound lanes on the bottom. I had to get back by 2:30 because I would be attending a doubleheader between the Cleveland Indians and the Kansas City Royals later that afternoon. In the double-dip, the Royals were swept, losing 10-5 in Game 1 and 8-5 in Game 2.
