Tuesday morning dawned clear once again with a light wind coming from the west.....a perfect cruising day when the air is clear and the wind is at your back! Our first task of the day was to 'pay the rent' as we fondly refer to the task of buying diesel fuel. There was a Speedway fuel station just south of I-70 so we headed there. Our fuel gauge was showing just over 1/4 tank, so it was time. I thought we would need about 125 gallons and we took on 129.....so that means we still had 51 gallons of diesel left in the tank. We paid $3.09/gallon parting with $399.98 cents. For the second tank in a row we averaged over 7 mpg.....7.09 mpg to be exact.
Before we merged back on to I-70 with the Newell train there was was a task which needed doing. I have been a fan of college football for a long time, and almost every year I watch the rivalry game between Michigan and Ohio. I've been to the 'Big House' in Ann Arbor, MI and taken a picture, but I've never been to Ohio Stadium where the Ohio State Buckeyes play, so we took the VW out of the trailer to drive 22 miles into Columbus to take my picture.....
We are just a little over 700 miles from Southwest Harbor, ME now and will be slowing down our rate of travel to take in some special sites along the way. We've got 14 days to cover this distance!
Before I close this day's missive I would like to hear from folks with RV's who have visited Boston, MA.......need input on where you parked your RV, and how you accessed Boston. Plus need suggestions on what are 'must see' places there. Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by!
