Independence, MO - Day 4 and 5

After visiting the USAF Museum, I left Dayton and drove about 75 miles west on I-70 to a truck stop in Spiceland, IN.  I quit early so I could take a nap and catch up on some sleep.  The truck stop was outside of Indianapolis and there wasn’t much in the surrounding area.  There was a threat of strong thunderstorms so I kept checking the sky, weather radar, and NOAA radio.  All we had were some off and on showers, which was ok with me.  There was a lot of traffic in and out of the truck stop with lots of RV's filling up and dumping out on there way home from the long week-end.  I was the only RV in the lot to spend the night.

Dayton, OH - Day 1 thru 3

After two long 400+ mile days, I made it to Dayton Ohio.  The drive out of New England is getting rote and boring because I’ve done it so many times.  I left in the rain and had a fairly uneventful drive down across CT, around NY on the outer thruway and over into PA.  My destination on Day one was Carlisle, PA.  It was a good spot to catch the PA Turnpike to get across the state.  My EZ-Pass continued to work great on all the toll roads in NY and PA.

Rocky Mountain Ramble 2013

I’m getting ready to head out on my biggest journey yet – a 6 week road trip out to Colorado, up thru and across Wyoming, into Montana, over to South Dakota, and down across Nebraska.  I know others have gone further and longer, but for me this will be my first road trip out west and 6 weeks will be the longest.
