Where I stayed
Holiday Inn Express
Well after preparing luggage, the car and me (this is a story for another time) we started on the road around 12h today. It's been 2 years plus since I have driven long distance. Temperature is fine. Getting warmer (slowly). No more snow. A lot of brown grass. Some deers, some mufflers, some car parts (so romantic) on the side of the road but it will get better and we will be on the green side tomorrow. The rest areas are what they are: lonely places to stretch and to go quickly to the bathroom but we must stop. New York state is such a long state. It took us all day to go through it. Finally around 6:45 pm, Hourray! we cross into Pennsylvania. Stop at the welcome center. Nice but closed. BUT they left books for hotel discount HOURRAY again. We stop 15 minutes later at a Holiday Inn Express. It's clean pretty new and cheap enough. Plus hot breakfast in the morning. Supper is an adventure at Country Market just aside a Flying J. They give discount too if you have your card (but noooo, no card for me!) I left it at home. Back to the palace and to cable TV. HBO please. It's time to relax get ready for tomorrow's adventure. For the folks who can relate this is a nice way to see some country the old fashion way.OK amigos more adventure next time.
