a roadtrip for the ages

31 07 2008

I made it!! I’m in Cleveland finally. All is well. I drove the entire way and stopped for lunch in Cincinnati at Whole Foods (fabulous!!).

Highlights
Stopping in Knoxville, TN (Volunteer country)in my Gator t-shirt. I swear I thought I was about to get assassinated! Cincinnati’s skyline is absolutely beautiful. I had no idea.
Gas was cheaper and cheaper the further north we came. Last stop was mid-grade gas for only $3.65!

Low point
Those doggone corn fields in Ohio. At first I was excited to see my first corn field. After about 5 miles, it became hypnotizing. Then it was annoying. Finally, aggravating.

All in all, it was a good ride. I’m relaxing now in a hotel room getting ready to start unpacking tomorrow.

Ummm, I think you may need to get rid of that Gator shirt you think the Volunteers gave you looks, just wait till you roll up on a Buckeye. I don’t see this having a good outcome.

Fergie – I’m just waiting for the blackeyes to play the Gators! I’m wearing every UF piece of clothing I own. LOL

Brit – I’ve seen Youngstown several times on signs. I can’t be too far from it. Thanks!

Babs – It was hypnotic. Not good when you’re trying to drive.

brran – How about my mom and I got lost trying to find a food co-op and ended up (get this) on East 99th! I hurried up and got outta there too.

Mel – August 25th
