Marriage License

Yesterday we had the privilege of obtaining our marriage license at the Carthage, Illinois Courthouse (labeled as B on the map). On the way up, we drove by a car crash that included large flames and an impressive column of smoke. Plus we drove through Quincy, IL as Obama was arriving to give a speech. After getting our license and jump starting the car that mysteriously died, we drove down to St. Louis to do a session at the temple (C). By this time it was 7:00 pm, so we continued on our way home to Warrensburg. We had been hoping to stop in Columbia (D) for dinner and some shopping, but we rolled in at about 8:57. Just enough time to see all of the restaurants and stores closing up. So we cut our losses and got McDonald's. We finally got home a little after 11 pm, bringing our total miles and driving time (according to mapquest) to 614.25 miles in 10 hours and 19 minutes. Below is a map detailing our route, starting and ending in Warrensburg (or E).

  1. McDonald's - there for you when everything else is closed, in Manti or Columbia.
