@sambencheghib on September 20th, 2019 | Day 56: I haven’t seen a single cloud since being in Illinois. This heat has made these past few days so much harder. It’s crazy how much the sun drains you out. I never thought drinking over 10 liters of water in a day was possible 😅

Counting down the miles until the next state line and the first 1,000 mile mark!

Next stop: St Louis, MO

929/3101 MILES

Here for the next 2 days talking to @stlzoo, @wustl_official and meeting local environmental groups. If you know anyone in the area, let me know!
