Snow stopped, roads good and back on the road with a very nice travel day

Where are we today ? 
clic a pic to enlarge it
         It was cold over night 26F at 5am (-3C) and we had a bit more snow but not too bad. We toasty warm inside so no problem there, much warmer when we don't have to open our slide.
     After coffees, computing and a walkabout the Walmart for a few more purchases, checked out tires and lights,  secured our coach and hit the road at 8:15 am. The roads were good, dry, no wind and the sun came out about noon, really warming up the day.
lots of ice on the front of our coach
snow and ice on our car
the roads are bare and pretty dry
           After we stopped at the Indiana welcome centre and made a bite to eat for lunch and a nice walkabout. Once past the welcome centre a few miles not much signs of snow. Took the southern by-pass (465) around Indianapolis that we like, no slow downs and a great road.
          Now after lunch Suzie can have a nap, no need to navigate. Back on I-70 east  the bypass around Indianapolis and to the Flying J in Spiceland, we have stayed at before. Just a nice easy drive.
I think this navigator needs a rest
The by-pass right here, miss the city and the traffic, easy-peasy
            A nice relaxing travel day and no real hurry, we planned on 274 miles and arrived at the Flying J in Spiceland Indianna . At 2 pm but now in Eastern Standard time it was 3 pm. We pulled in topped up our propane tank and gas tank then just pulled around and got a nice parking spot in the RV parking spaces. Temperature here was 61F (16C) and sunny love it ! So got a few walkabouts enjoying the sunshine and warm weather feels good to stretch my legs again.
all parked for the night
          Now for supper tonight Suzie decided that she would like to grab something at Denny's. So I guess I don't need to cook. Hmm , but I have a plan, passenger wiper blade needs replacing Again! I checked out what they had and got a much better quality one. A few minutes later that was taken care of, and I checked e-mails relaxed for a bit then we headed on in for supper.
         They were not too busy and we had great service. Loved some of the pics inside some retro stuff.
there we are in Spiceland !
from days gone by
Suzie's Omellete
my spicy chicken skillet
         Well supper was tasty I wanted a new menu chicken item , but it was so new they did not have it in yet, (guess the chickens are still growing) so I settled on the spicy chicken Skillet that I like and Suzie the Philly steak omelette both meals were excellent, cooked to order, we thought about taking some home, and split a desert, well no take homes and no desert it was that good. Many years ago we went to a Denny's and did not enjoy the meal at all, but since then we thought we would try it just lately, they have changed the menu we have found mostly so far much better food and service. We are not much into large chain restaurants as a rule.
        We scanned for local Hi def channels on our antenna  and picked up about 50 , so lotsa choices, we found a John Wayne and Ann-Margaret  a 1973 movie Train Robbers , we both love these old westerns.
        That was it about it for another great travel day.
        Thanks for joining us and hope y'all had a good one as well.
274 miles today

    1. It was a good travel day, once the roads cleared, passed a few spots where vehicles had sold off the road and some still in the ditch.
      Supper was excellent.

  2. Yikes. Looks like you are north a little too soon! We are going to spend a couple of weeks in Texas waiting for things to warm up a bit more.

    1. Most years we are good at this time of year, but can't predict the weather, it is still a bit better here than back in Ontario. Enjoy your time in south Texas.

  3. Glad to read that the roads were dry and clear so you could continue on your way. I always like when the snow clings to the trees it makes everything look like a wonderland. Plus, it does make for some really nice pictures. Stay warm and continued safe travels.

  7. Wouldn't it be nice if we Canadians were allowed a few weeks more in the USA per year without all the restrictions? Hope the rest of your travel goes as smooth as it has been so far and having someone else cook dinner is nice for a change, isn't it?

    1. A few more weeks would be just about perfect. Travel is going well, but we have a rude awaking last night. You can read about it on tonights posting, dinner was tasty but I still prefer to cook our own.
