Illinois 2022 (Feb)

Canton & Moline, Illinois

Wednesday, February 2 through Sunday, February 6

We drove from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Canton, Illinois and Moline, Illinois, including an overnight stop at Salina, Kansas (northeast-bound) and at Merriam, Kansas (southwest-bound). The unpleasant primary purpose of the trip was to attend my father's burial at White Chapel Memory Gardens in Canton, Illinois. We also visited (drove by) several points of interest in both Canton and Moline (including former residences and schools in both cities). We intended to travel to Illinois via Joplin, Missouri, but a winter storm necessitated the detour through Kansas.

I tracked the trip with a Bad Elf GPS Pro+ GPSr (GPS receiver).

NOTE: the downloadable GPX tracks are the full GPX files, while those shown on the provided "view map" links are simplified (with minimal effect on geographic accuracy) for much faster viewing.

Original GPX tracks are unedited, except as noted.
