Chicago to St. Louis Route

Hey all,I'm heading out on a long tour (Chicago to LA via Denver) and using some Adventure Cycling trails to get there. Problem is, I don't have a clear route from here south to the TransAmerica route. I figure I might as well pass through Springfield and St. Louis on my way down. Does anyone have any advice or a route they've ridden?Thanks!MarpleSee More
