Tom Tom Agrees, Western Illinois Sucks Prong!!!
This is what Western Illinois looks like to Tom Tom and oddly enough, that's about as colorful as it gets. For the longest time, I wondered why Chicago was so windy, now I know. There ain't a damn thing blocking the wind! On one side, Lake Michigan and its vastness, on the other, flat Kansas-looking Illinois...and its vastness. I saw dead birds all over the damn place, why? They died from exhaustion from finding a place to frickin' land! It was flat, uninteresting, torturous and seemed to go on forever...kinda like watching Fox News. If you want a more scenic view and don't care about time being saved, you may want to take the Route 66 way, seriously. You'll also find better places to eat, believe me.
OH LOOK!!! IT'S A HILL!!!...and the only one for about 200 miles after you get past East St. Louis:
I swear to God, if you dropped me into that part of Illinois blindfolded, I would swear I was in Kansas somewhere. With this kind of driving, hallucinogens aren't necessary as you will be seeing shit after a while of driving here, so save your 'shrooms.
I am the Complaint Department Manager and I do not approve this kind of landscape.
