Day ONE...
Friday, May 25th, 2012

Friday morning in Southwestern Illinois started with breakfast in Belleville at Eckerts Farm. This plate was nothing short of everything on a breakfast menu in one plate toped with sausage gravy. To say the least eating three-fourths of the plate lead to one and a half days of not haveing to eat. It was just that filling. Good thing walking was planned to start the day off before the journey north.
