NWI_Irish96's Regional Trips (IL/KY/OH)

<< < (6/6)


--- Quote from: NWI_Irish96 on January 01, 2023, 12:35:44 PM ---So this is an unfortunate report. Early on the morning of the 29th, I set out on one final clinching trip for the year, planning on picking off several Iowa counties as well as IL 5 in Rock Island and a nice chunk of US 34. I thought all the ice had melted on my driveway but I found the one patch that didn't. I broke my fall with my left arm, which knocked my humerus completely out of its socket and fractured it in two spots. It required surgery and a splint for 6 weeks and even then I might still need a shoulder replacement. Worst part is that I'm left handed, but in any case no driving for me for quite a while. Also having to type one handed so probably significantly less posting for a while too.

So, I'm still far from 100% recovered but x-rays look good and physical therapy is going well so I finally went out to complete the trip that I was going to do in December before my fall.

Got five new counties in southeastern Iowa, which now completes all the Iowa counties that border Illinois. On the way back I got the rest of US 34 in Illinois that I was missing, as well as some new chunks of IL 84, IL 5, IL 92, IL 40, IL 17, IL 29, IL 26, IL 117, IL 116 and IL 251. I was one hour too late to cross the Illinois River on IL 17 before the bridge closed for construction (thus the chunks of IL 29 and IL 26).
