Somebody must not want us to get to the East Coast.
First there is the gasoline pipeline shutoff that has a few states along our route running out of gas.
There was the Route 40 Mississippi River bridge closure due to a large crack found the evening prior to our arrival yesterday. And it wasn’t just a small crack. A huge steel beam was broken in half.
Not only have they closed the bridge to traffic, they have also blocked ships from passing under the bridge. This will be a problem for a while.
We need to be cautious from here and keep our eyes open for additional obstacles.
