As we headed up route 65 on the way to Collins we found ourselves in a traffic jam due to a wreck ahead of us.  And I thought I left freeway traffic jams when I became "gainfully unemployed", apparently not.  With the delayed start I really had to move to get the 22.1 miles (35.6452 km's) before dark.  Steps taken today were 45,297.  Findings for the day: 1 cell phone (sans battery), 1 24" rubber tie down (bungee cord), 1 live .45 caliber bullet (slightly beat up), 2 dimes, 1 nickel and 4 pennies.  No substantive wildlife seen.  Still going south on route 13.  We stopped just at the northern foundry of the Bolivar city limits.  Tomorrow we should get to the northern part of Springfield.  The good news, days get longer on the 22nd, the bad news, Jim the driver, leaves on the 20th and the new driver has yet to identify themselves.  Who WILL it be!?!?!?...cheers
