a look at our first day

We made it through day one of our road trip.  With lots of stops along the way to play with the dog and fuel up.

Traveling with a camp stove is key.  We spent 25 dollars on food at the grocery store and we will have plenty for the whole trip.  A little oatmeal stop somewhere in PA.

We didn’t run into any nasty weather which was a huge bonus. Considering we left 2 feet of snow behind us in Concord, the roads were fine.

We listened the book “Born to Run” on cd.  What a fun adventurous story.  We can’t wait to get back in the car this morning and keep listening.  It’s getting really good.

Peanut butter and honey sandwiches somewhere in Maryland.  Henry got to eat a bone at this stop.  His favorite.  Considering he spent 14 hours in the car yesterday, he seems to be doing really well.  We got as much exercise as possible at all our rest stops.  Fun playgrounds, parking lots, and sketchy rest stops.  Henry wasn’t picky, he just wanted to run!

We finally ended our day in Huntington, West Virginia with our friend Mary.  She greeted us with beer and a roasted chicken and veggie dinner.  We love you Mary.  Thank you so much.  By the way, the carrots are from Hutchins Farm.  Even better!

And now we are off.  Back to the open road. We love it!

    Some more Emerson for the road—-“Whatever course you decide upon there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.”

    So your dad thinks sleeping in that truck just sounds like so much fun. Here is what almost 40 years of marriage will do for you. i’d be glad to let your dad have his fun while i checked into a hotel with sheets with no less than 600 thread count.

    Somewhere along the line the New York Times missed the real story.

    Journey mercies.

    The camp stove sounds like such a good idea!! Breakfast, lunch, all on board. Good luck again! The journey sounds great so far. Keep safe!

    I think the New York Times missed the real story too!
