Three States Traversed Today. Try saying that with a brogue .
I put 540 miles on the dial Tuesday, to get a quick westward spurt.
I’m in Mentor, Ohio – ranked 37th best town to live in the United States . I arrived in the dark so hard to tell yet.
There was lots of foostering with the radio today. Lots of New Wave & Euro Trash. The most appropriate song for today’s trip : “Road To Nowhere” – Talking Heads. It was a long one. I90W all the way.
On the Audio book front, I was 10 minutes in to GOT before I threw it in. The narrators characterizations sounded Monty Python sketch like. I quit before I heard Jamie Lannister in full Spam-Spam-Spam-Spam mode. No way I was dealing with 40 hours of that.
I did binge all five episodes of The Making of a Massacre on Audible (non fiction ). Topical and very good but not for the squeamish.
As I got in a bit late to the hotel, the Concierge recommended BJs. Where initially I was a little disappointed to realize a restaurant was under discussion – the bacon guacamole burger there was very good, as was the coffee. The staff there were all delightful and I got some great recommendations for Mentor.
Keeping track of costs, just for shits and giggles:
- Gas $54
- Best Western Plus Lawmfield Inn with brekkie $113 (My first Hotels.com last minute booking a success!)
- Dinner at BJs: $13 pre-tip!
