We drove thru 20 states. Slept at 4 Walmarts. Stayed at 3 campgrounds, and 2 Ohio travel plazas (Blue Heron & Middle Ridge).
Pe@rl was amazing, and more than exceeded all our expectations. And I can’t wait to go camping at our favorite places with her! It’s definitely made it much easier to travel with such crazy allergies. And will make camping easier, but still camping 🙂 You won’t hear much about her for the winter, but she’ll be back next year!
After our late night, we woke up quite late in the Blue Heron Travel Plaza. Probably a combination of being up way too late, closing the shades to block out the street lights, and the heavy dark clouds preventing daylight from happening…
And I was really glad we were close to home, since during the night I woke up to a puppy dog who’d eaten too many treats puking on my bed… True story. Thankfully it was the little cute one, less volume that way…….
We decided to stick to I80. Since we were back on familiar tuft per say, nearing the East Coast. And things are much closer together and much more congested.
We decided to head straight for home. So we stopped for some snacks, and another Chipotle dinner near the Ohio Pennsylvania border.
So I’m not a huge Oreo fan, I know crazy… But those? Are really good!
We drove thru Pennsylvania in the dark. Which seems to be our thing, I was telling my PB I’m not sure I’ve ever seen I80 thru Pennsylvania in the daylight… We almost always drive that with the truckers at night. So maybe we should try it in the daylight next time!
We made the Maine border mid-morning. And when we stopped in the rest area near Yarmouth, I took over driving and decided we should go up Rte 1 for a more scenic drive!
Which it was, and we even stopped for ice cream 🙂
It was great getting home! Even though right away, before we could even unpack, I had to vacuum up 2 weeks worth of dead flies…!
