I know I'm late to this thread but interestingly enough I was stuck at the rest stop west of Tiffin for a few hours. The woman cleaning the place told me I couldn't say there all night, which I took as a stern "Eff off". Walked to the Kum & Go. Right after walking in a trucker offered me a ride since he was going to Chi too, but wouldn't be leaving for a bit, but since it was a little chilly out we decided to hang out and talk for a bit. Turned out he was gay, his husband had died, blah blah blah.
Got out of the truck, walked back to the Kum & Go (he had pulled out of the lot to another shoulder to talk), and spent the night on the patio of an almost completed condo building near the K & G. In the morning I walked back to the on-ramp, and right before I got there, I got a ride to Davenport. Not a bad deal.
The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
