Although I wanted to drive as far as Lorain, OH (Cleveland) this afternoon, I waited until the biggest part of commute traffic was gone this morning, and got a later start than usual. It was nice though, because my niece came over and she, my s-i-l and I had a nice time to talk. My brother went to work earlier. Also, I moved into the eastern time zone so I lost an hour. So here I am at the same motel I stopped in last year on my way to NY.
The weather has been pretty good – once in a while a few rain drops, but mostly clear and windy. I could barely make it from my car to the motel entrance because of the wind, and I will have to go out again with Lady and to get a few more items from the car. The wind is causing high pollen counts and I can sure tell it!
Lady finally ate supper last night after refusing to eat for 3 days. She has a really difficult time getting up and down as well, and the first thing I will have to do when I get to NY is to get her something for achy old doggie joints! I was getting a little concerned about her not eating.
I am SO glad I got the I Pass, and can’t believe how many toll booths there are along the way; I had to stop at all of them last year and it is so nice to just drive on through.
I’m almost too tired to write down all the daily trip info, but I don’t want to let it get away from me as I’ve kept up with it so far. I’m so thankful I made it around Chicago, and hope Cleveland will be relatively easy. That should be the last large city I’ll have to deal with this segment of the trip.
Coming through Northern Indiana I get a little pang of nostalgia when I see the RV manufacturers along the highway, but not much (nostalgia, that is). Every time I think about it and wonder what it might be like to try it again, I realize it is not for me. I sure am glad I tried it for a couple of years, although I’d like to have the money it cost me – even just the depreciation amount. I hope all the RVers out there have some great trips this summer.
I don’t know if I’ll be in PA or NY tomorrow evening, as I’m still making up my mind which route to take. At any rate, I hope to be at my NY destination on Wednesday. I know one thing – I’m buying a pillow to sit on for the trip back!
