The original strip I had for today got pushed to Thursday because of how complicated it was going to turn out. But I managed to come up with an extra gag to wedge into the story.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [1969; Sandstone and company have hit a dead end] (CW, behind the wheel) "Well, shit... I thought this part of I-44 was DONE by now!" (BG, looking out the passenger window) "Nope. I'm not seeing ANY kind of freeway at all!" (ND) "How about I take over driving duties. I downloaded thousands of 1969 map images and highway history websites before we left." [Peace sign on the side of the van, with "WOOD STOCK OR BUST!" on the back windows]
