FIELDS TRIP
Interstate 44 Missouri

Interstate 44 begins in Wichita Falls, Texas, and runs north-south to Oklahoma City, where the highway turns to the east. The interstate then heads through Tulsa, Joplin, Springfield, and Rolla, before ending near downtown St. Louis. On Day Five of the Fields Trip, I drove Interstate 44 for just two miles, between Interstate 270 and Fenton, and on Day Six, I drove Interstate 44 from Fenton, Missouri, to Oklahoma City.
