|Biking the TransAm through Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas - sure does not look like a recovering economy
We are finding lots of the motels/minimarts listed on the maps are closed. Many downtowns (which clearly were gorgeous back in the day) are mostly ghosttowns now.
We just got back from walking over to a mall to see if we could find a bookstore - almost 2/3rds of the stores were closed. And even tho it was lunchtime (summer) there were maybe 20 - 30 people shopping, including us?
Is this what you see where you are too?
