Where are we today ?Another quiet night and a good sleep. Actually slept later than usual almost 6 am when I got up ! The usual coffees and computing, walkabouts the Flying J, love looking at all the trucks. Grabbed Suzie a French Vanilla Cappuccino, (free with our Good Sam Card). Gotta like free parking, cheap fuel and free coffee.
This morning we heading to another Flying J for the night Effingham Illinois 339 miles.
|339 miles today|
|Monday just after we fuelled for $2.00 a gallon|
That is until we got past Columbus onto I-70 west, construction. Narrowed from 3 lanes to one lane took us one hour to go 5 miles. No problem we in our house, I can read, and crawl along bit by bit. So we lost an hour here, but we gained an hour with the time change in Illinois.
From Ohio we passed through Indiana and Indianapolis into Illinois, no problem clear sailing again other than a light rain almost all day. Don't mind the light rain as long as we had no wind and freezing stuff. We do stop at every rest area, get out a stretch check the tires and stuff then all refreshed and ready to move on down the road.
We arrived at our destination (Flying J Effingham Illinois) 3:40pm but 2:40pm local time. Thats enough travelling for one day. Fuel up the coach even better price than yesterday with our Good Sam discount $1.96.9 a gallon ($2.61.3 Canadian) = .69 cents a litre, another good deal.
Looking out the window just watching the rain come down and the trucks, never ending it seems.
Just whipped up a salad to go with the chops and we good to go. paper plates again, so no dishes for Suzie, Gotta keep her happy too.
Another good travel day behind us making good time, not too scenic with the rain all day but we take it as it comes. We safe and comfy in our house and heading to the southwest for the winter months, whats not to love about that ?
Just into Illinois we stopped at the welcome centre rest area, walkabout and made bit to eat for lunch. Really love all the convenient rest areas here on the Interstates, easy on easy off and lots parking too.

|wonderful change of pace|
The Flying J's work for us with longer travel days.easy fillups with the RV islands, usually lotsa parking away from the trucks, close to the highway, 24 hour security and the Good Sam discounts. Not for everyone but we like them. Sometimes a Walmart , a casino or other places work too, just depends on our moods.
Hope you had a good day too, wherever you are. Thanks for stopping in.
