Great travel day and getting much warmer, love it!

Where are we today ?
Flying J Berkshire Ohio
       Great nights sleep last night, but very cold this morning here in upstate New York. Heavy ice on the car windows and frost everywhere. Yep, time to get outta Dodge and head south.
        So just before 9 am hooked up the car and pulled out of Bill and Barb's (thanks for the great place and wonderful visit guys). We have to go through Buffalo New York and 9 am we will miss the morning rush hour.  Smooth sailing all day today. Perfect warm, sunny day, no rain no traffic, no delays, no wind, does not get much better. Our goal is to get to some sunny warmer weather further south, so a couple of relatively long travel days we don't mind, to enjoy warmer sooner and longer. Gonna hang out in Unadilla Georgia for a week,  gonna be on the 80's (yep we like that!) what's the  hurry? Liking this weather it's really good right now.
324 miles today
    Got to the Flying J just north of Columbus Ohio at 3:30pm, fuelled up our coach and found a spot to park for the night. Right away, shorts and t-shirt weather, its 77f love it!
Wonderful fall colors along the way
cruising the interstate to make some miles today
        Our destination for today, time to stop and call it quits! Just before Columbus Ohio.

           Gas  was  $2.86 a gallon with the Good Sam card discount of 3 cents a gallon. 75 cents an litre (86 cents at 15 %)  exchange still a good deal for us compared to $1.12 a litre in Ontario,  thats $4.23 a gallon. A savings for us today of $72.61 on this fill-up alone! Love travelling in the good old USA.
all settled in for the night 
          Tv channels all scanned in with our new converter, and we have a lot of choices if we want to watch the tv, later.
            Now that we are here and relaxed just gonna whip up a bite to eat.  A tasty salad  leftover  chicken that I steamed to warm it up an make moist, added to a tasty salad and we are back on track to our healthy eating again.
sure did the trick an feels great
       How much nicer than a great travel day, hitting warmer weather and travelling roads we have not seen for a few years. The new sites we have seen and just enjoy being on the road again.
        Thats all we did today and we both enjoyed it.
         Thanks again for stopping on by.

  3. We won't be high tailing it out of here until after the weekend and that even depends on the weather. It'll be a one night stop over before we hit the mountains. We'll be in search of that warm weather too. California here we come.

  5. When pressed to find heat and better climes quickly, we'll pull a long day at the wheel too. It's often worth it. The warm temperatures made the long travel day worth it.

  8. Ah yes, "back on track". I was wondering about those wings (etc) you were chowing down on yesterday. Can't have too much of that stuff. And live.
    Have fun in the heat.

  10. In looking at the weather forecast, looks like you are getting out of Dodge at just the right time. 76 here in East TN today, 63 on Thu. and 52 on Fri - then back to more normal temps. You pass pretty close to me if going down I-75.
