Virtual Hike to Eagleville, Missouri

I have reached another destination on my Virtual Hike. This segment of the virtual hike has been from Hamburg, Iowa to Eagleville, Missouri.

Each of these towns have a family connection for me, as will many of my destinations now that I have made it to the Midwest.

The next destination of my Virtual Hike is in Iowa, so I am turning north. I am still working on the exact route as there are some places along the way with family significance and I have to decide which ones to pass through.
