This morning we left our motel in Cairo, Illinois and drove back across the river to the "Welcome to Kentucky" sign where Russ would resume his ride. We were on the road at 6:20 am and the temperature was a pleasant 76 degrees. We were on highway 51 south, a narrow tree-lined road along a levee. Fortunately, there was not much traffic.
We arrived at the Tennessee border at 10:15 after traveling just over 40 miles through Kentucky.
