Closer to Home

We are so close to home now we didn't even want to stop for the night.   Good sense took over though and we landed in a Casino parking lot in Erie Pennsylvania.    We are two hours from home,  110 miles, plus however long they detain us at the border.       

There just wasn't anything exciting along our 4 hour drive today, so I found myself all caught up in this fun house mirror like truck that was in front of us for a while.   Sometimes it looked like Myrtle was going to topple over sideways.     We were like silly children who couldn't stop looking at themselves in the mirror.   ah, a little fun to break up the monotony of the road.    

Here's Myrtle tucked in for the night.   We got here at about 2:30 p.m.    The temptation to just move on was great, but I think we have gained some wisdom.   The payment would be too high.    As it is, we are wondering if we will be able bodied enough to make the two hour trek tomorrow.    We have decided that as long as even one of us is capable of driving, we will go home.    


After we had a nap, shower and dinner, Gerry couldn't resist the call of the Casino.   He headed over a few minutes ago.....I hope he comes back a richer man.  :)    

I am chilling in Myrtle, enjoying the quiet solitude and the gentle rocking from the wind.

Trent (the grandson) thinks we are coming home somewhere between April 8th and 10th.   We plan to surprise him  on Friday.   I can't wait to see his face.    I think out of everyone from home, he misses us the most.   

One more sleep...........
