Papillion to Joplin - July 22, 2015

Our ride from Papillion to Joplin. Our route was US 75 to Nebraska City, through Nebraska City on Business US 75, across into Iowa on Nebraska/Iowa 2, then I-29 South with a short side loop on I-229 through St. Joseph, then I-435 around the west and south side of the Kansas City metro area. After dinner, it was I-49 down to Joplin for the night.
