But the shower was great. Great if you come directly from the road, and need that hot water warming you up.
Hotel breakfasts are the same problem as the bedding. What they call "Continental breakfast" in this country is an absolute joke. So we decided to have breakfast in the van. I spearheaded the making of it and put water to a boil - coffee water that is. Then Bea and Molly arrived outside, so I had to clear out. When I peeked back in, Bea had just poured oats and raisins into my coffee water!!! So I went to fetch a second pot and started it all over again. Since I had planned to make a lot of coffee there was plenty of water and accordingly, there was plenty of porridge after it all was finished.
I remember a saying about too many cooks are destroying the dish....something to that extent, you help me out here....
|Anyone knows what kind of airplane this guy put on his lawn?|
Anyway, finally we had sorted it all out and were out on the blacktop, heading west.
Jamestown,NY. Erie,PA Cleveland and Toledo, OH.....we blew through these states.
|Limited vision for 2 hours|
At Cleveland we saw a black wall coming up from the west. It was BRUTUS. He dispensed tons of rain on us. It was so bad that the wipers were doing over time, hardly managing all that water on the windshield. And sure enough, the oncoming lane was blocked by a bad accident. Why people can't adjust their speed to weather conditions is beyond me.
Approaching Toledo, Brutus had passed over us and a lighter sky was ahead of us. Finally the rain ceased completely and even the sun got out again. BUT what had happened to the temperature? It had fallen from about 65F to about 44F. Wow.. and a biting wind made it even more uncomfortable. So now we are parked close to the State Line to Indiana.
Another 6-7 hrs. will get us to Walcott,IA where we will take possession of our travel trailer.
And the first part of this years journey will be over.
So, thanks for stopping by!
