Where Am I?

I've driven this road a half dozen times before, always in the dark: Interstate 70 heading west of St. Louis. All I see are long stretches with a few lights, punctuated every 15 minutes or so with exits leading the same ten fast food places. This time, though, I'm seeing it differently. I've got the PowerBook open on the passenger's seat, and ROUTE 66 is running. On the dashboard, I've got my nifty little Rayming TN-200 GPS thing. So now the darkness is embellished. Now I can see where those lights are coming from and that just behind the trees there are roads and lakes. It makes the two hour drive go more quickly, though I'm careful not to get distracted.

The crescent moon and Venus are directly in front as I head west.
