Travel to east coast

Okay people its 1:33am and my first thought is while im standing here in my bathroom....why the hell is my husband singing 'I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it'"? Seriously I'm excited but did I mention it's 1:34am now.... This is going to be a long trip.

It's now 3:52am I'm still awake and have learned of all the sicko satellite radio stations on at this time. Completely gross. We are about a 100 miles from Albert lee, MN. And have gone through 2 mini waters, trail mix, a piece of gum each, and now a diet mountain dew... I think it's more to keep our minds busy. I'm starting to get blurry eyed but I promised I'd stay awake until sunrise. What time does the sun come up anyway? 7:00? Ugh this may be rough.

Passed out at 4:15am woke up at 5:15am. Sorry sweetie but it was better then I did last year!

Mason city, is Micky D's for a quick pick up 6:04

6:23 roads are awful! A quarter inch of snow must have fallen last night and no plows. 23 degrees = ice for the net 30 mins. My body always tenses cause George cuts off the radio to concentrate but still proceeds to haul ass on the road.

7:18 roads clear! Back up to 70 mph!

8:19 cedar rapid Iowa. Home of Quaker oats. I love going past this city, it smells of warm oatmeal! George and I always laugh at the slavak museum sign since one of Winston's nicknames is slava.

Quaker Oat Factory, Cedar Rapids IA

9am rest stop at last area in Iowa. After we pulled out of our stop we passed Iowa's I80 largest rest stop.

3:16pm we are at a gas station right on the outer loop of Indy filling up when we hear a guy yell to another "yea I been to jail before!" George says to me "I'm getting the hell out of here" we miss Mitchell already.

4:00 cross over into Ohio It's pouring rain.

5:04 Ugh. Ohio I hate you. Every time we get to this area we lose time. Should've been in the hotel already and instead were in bumper to bumper traffic due to an accident.

Sweet only lost 20 minutes!

Ugh... Spoke to soon. We sat in traffic for one hour! Not even sure why, it's pouring ran, a truck cut us off and George has to slam on the breaks... That guy picked the wrong truck to cut off and George is making sure he knows that by laying on the horn for 30 seconds straight. I hate times like this.

7:24 finally in the hotel just east of Columbus. Subway for dinner, a nice shower and bed early. I feel yucky and fell light headed from all the motion of driving 16.5 hours!

Good Night!

Also, I'm blogging from my phone so I'll probably go back and fix the format once I get on my computer. I'm not sure how the pictures will turn out.

Columbus, Ohio (Disliking you right now)

Safe travels!
