Hi - here's my question. You described a route from Chicago to STL in an earlier post, something along the lines of Elgin, Sycamore, Oregon, Sterling, Quad Cities...then down along the east bank of the Mississippi, connecting to Rt 96 to take Golden Eagle ferry to Missouri flood plain biking into St Charles.
