Now the following routes from Jeff City towards Springfield are all very good for the MINI motorist:
Mo 87 south to Eldon, a short leg on US 54 south to pick up Mo 52 SE to Tuscumbria. Then 17 south to C, which will take you through Brumley, eventually intersecting with A, which takes you south to Richland. "Ride over" - when a short leg on 133 dumped us out on I-44.
Samantha was ready for more back-road motoring, but it was getting late, and we were tired, so I turned off the GPS, switched the MINI over to Cruise Control, and fired up a Jimi Hendrix CD - the blues sessions - to dull the mind-crushing boredom of the Interstate.
