I had been doing some poking around looking for a grave site and a house that were in my family. Last time I was there was 40 years ago. After completing my quest, I popped into apple maps to get me back to where I was staying back in Muscatine, IA. It gave me several routes, and I naturally chose the longest route. Instead of 15 miles of near interstate speeds on that 4 lane highway (which USED to be a 2 lane road), I picked the windy path through farmlands and along the Mississippi River. Exactly the roads I remembered from the previous visit.
Oh, and silver is perfect for these roads.. or any road. The dust doesn't show nearly as much as if we had picked the red one my wife wanted...
