August 1, 2013 On the Road

Berlin, Ohio to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Packed up and left Scenic Hills Site 45 at 9 AM. Drove west on 39 to west 30, then north on 15, 75, 475/23, and then back on 75 to a rest area a little short of the Mackinac Bridge connecting Lower Michigan with Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Relatively easy drive, roads in fair shape and once out to the interstates, flat farm country. Nice farm scenery, nothing that made me want to stop though.  Stopped at huge Walmart around exit 282, really nice new store, for fried chix and some staples. Put in a long day, stopped at 8:30 and spent the night at the very last rest area before the Mackinac Bridge, a smallish rest area, probably parking for 10 trucks and RV’s.

Empty when I stopped but, sure enough 2 truckers pulled in, one on either side of me, with the whole lot empty and NO legal spot to my drivers side. Think that’s not intentional! They did shut down though after about an hour or so and I was watching a movie while they were running, so no problem. Actually got a good night’s sleep.

Weather remains nice, high 70’s mostly, couple brief showers, and it is cooling down nicely tonight.
