Yay! Our first customer. The goal of this project, of course, was to create routes that people could follow. Glad to hear someone might actually do that.

To address your question. I've not gotten any data for Iowa, and Illinois is only partially routed.

You can go to this site: http://www.imtrails.com/mississippitrail/

It has the MRT mapped top to bottom, as far as I can tell. I don't see a way to download the data... and in addition, I've found discrepancies between the online route and the signs on the roads. Not to mention there are places (like Illinois) where the MRT follows bike paths where you can't ride your motorcycle. In these cases, I wanted this project to map out as close to the MRT as feasible.
