Well, our 19 day road trip started on Thursday, July 13th. We left Las Vegas in the morning, driving about 8 hours to Grand Junction CO where we spent the first night. We planned the trip so we would only drive about 8 hrs each day. Didn't want to stress ourselves should weather or construction hinder us. But we had no problems with either for the first 10 days. :-)
Day 2 took us to North Platte NE.
Since we were spending so much time in so many hotels we decided to cut costs and stay at Super 8'S. That ended up being hit or miss. :-)
Grand Junction was just old and icky. But the bed was clean and bed bug free. And we were only spending the night. North Platte was a bit better. Then day 3 took us to Coralville Iowa just outside of Iowa City. There, there was a chair that was pretty smelly. Craig sat on the bed. :-)
From there on day 4 it was Toledo Ohio where we had the nicest Super 8 of the trip! That was good since we spent 2 nights here. The next morning (day 5) we drove over to Maumee Bay State Park where we had been several times with our motor home. A nice state park on Lake Erie just a few miles outside of Toledo. We then headed back to downtown Toledo to go to the Libby Outlet Store, where we found some nice cocktail glasses. Then a few blocks down the street to get our Tony Packo's fix, They have very yummy Hungarian Chili Dogs!.
Then on day 6, we drove into Michigan, past Lansing over to Muskegon where we stayed at a very nice Holiday Inn downtown. We spent the extra money because it was close to my mom and I get good points. :-)
Here's a view from our room...
On the way back to the car I spotted this guy....
It was good seeing my Mom after nearly a year. From here we headed back to Lansing.
I'll do another post hopefully tomorrow.
