We left the Escapade yesterday morning around 7:15 to make the 7:30 appointment for the new tires for the fiver. Lovely - we arrived, they got right on it and we were on the road before 8. AND they paid us $300.00 for the old tires we had on the rig. They had told us they would buy the tires as they always need decent used trailer tires. We were surprised at how much they gave us. BEAUTIFUL!
Last night we drove as far as Effingham, IL. where we over-nighted at Wallyworld Camp.
This morning we took to the road heading northeast to our destination of Hamburg, NY which is in the Buffalo area. We've enjoyed before the Air Force Museum on Wright-Patterson AF Base. As we had plenty of time we took a detour off of I70 down to the museum where we walked around for a spell.
We planned on staying once again at a Wallyworld Camp in Columbus, OH but upon arriving found that RV'ers are not welcome to stay overnight. So down the road we went again.
We first pulled into a rest area on I71 but didn't feel comfortable opening the slides. I checked the GPS and found there was a Flying J about 3 miles ahead. Flying J it is.
We've dined at Denny's. (I think saying DINING at Denny's is pushing it). And now we are settled in for the night.
As we only have about 325 miles to go, we will probably be really close to our destination tomorrow night allowing us to arrive first thing Monday morning. We are looking forward to the NOMADS annual meeting.
