Good god, there is nothing there!

Damn, Illinois, you have nothing outside of Chicago but empty farmland!  I rode through a good portion of IL during my Moonshine Lunch Run ride and there is nothing out there.  It is a lot like Kansas where you have nothing but farmland forever.  That, and tiny dying towns popping up on the road and disappearing in the mirror offering nothing to a passing traveler.  In most cases, not even a dour local looking on suspiciously as you coast through.  It felt like a post-apocalyptic landscape and I expected a hoard of zombies around each bend in the road.  Thing is, there would not be enough people in the area to even constitute a hoard…  It might be IL, but I bet those farmers out there are armed to the teeth.
