    July 2, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Today was a lazy morning which is always nice. Danny and the kids came over to Joe and Carol's house and we drove to where the GoodYear blimp's hanger is, which is all right across from a state park with a playground.

    The kids played for a bit before we went back from lunch. After lunch we went to the local splash pad. It was so hot and was full of kids. It was a very busy day for the lifeguard as there was a kid who got his head smashed with a very deep cut, a little girl almost drowned at the little pond just near by and then lightning was seen so the splash pad had to shut.

    Since Joe and Carol babysit the grandkids twice a week, there were lots of toys and kids stuff around. Inara loved the cute little potty in the bathroom and even had her first pee in the toilet. Very exciting.

    The storm never came that close to us so after dinner we were able to drive down to Akron and we all went to see the Bee Gee' s tribute band at an outdoor area. The rib cook off was also going on just above the lawn/stage area so Joe bought some ribs to try and they melted off the bone into the mouth. We also tried to the local brewery, the Thirsty Dog, which was being sold there.

    The band itself wasn't the best but the night was perfect. The weather was no longer hot and humid and it was a perfect summer night. The kids had a blast running down the hill and playing. We had a great time with Joe, Carol, Danny and his kids for the last 2 days.

    Day 28 - Good vs Bad

    October 5, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 21 °C

    Another epic drive today. Two new states and another time zone. We are now on Eastern Time for a while, giving us a mini-break from messing about with the car's clock.

    We have hit the fourth week marker and we're getting into a rhythm whilst at service stations. We pull up, one of us prepays for petrol whilst the other wipes dead bugs from the windscreen, then it's time for a much needed restroom break. Country Music is definitely the music of choice in service stations. It is whilst in a service station that every fizzy, sugary, fatty and salty snack ever imagined is available. That's the bad.

    We started the day however with good intentions. With lunch approaching we were hoping to come across a chain that we recognised so we could go for something that we had seen before that was light. We then spied Applebee's and we headed straight there. Alice had slices of steak with spinach and grains and I had grilled chicken with rice, apple pieces and cranberries. They were both really tasty and we felt good about ourselves. We even just ordered water as it's taken a while to stop ordering fizzy drinks with every meal.

    Now the bad. At the half way point we pulled up at a service station to fill up, swap over and maybe get a coffee. Low and behold there in front of us was a Cinnabon stand. I had only previously heard about Cinnabon from a Louis CK sketch. It's a huge bun with handfuls of sugar, icing and cinnamon. It is served with a knife and fork and you still somehow end up with sticky fingers. Well, at least we washed it down with water!

    We got to our stop-off point for the night by about eight and we popped to a local eatery for dinner. We kept it simple, shrimp for me and shnitzel for Alice. Back at the motel they had an indoor pool and a hot tub that Alice and I decided to make the most of before they closed the facilities at eleven. The hot tub was ridiculously hot and the pool reassuringly cool and so we spent the time alternating between the two. With temperatures correct, we relaxed and made plans for the following day in Cleveland.

    We stopped at a service plaza. It had restaurants, gas, and gift shops. We tried eating outside but it started raining. Now we are back on the road. Getting close to the mountains. Starting to look pretty.

    As we got on the road and it it's wet.. the girls asked if it was raining. Well, the mad dash inside 30 minutes ago might mean yeah... It rained.

    O & E

    November 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 4 °C

    Ich verlasse mein viktorianisches Zimmer und fahre nach Akron. Bisher war Ohio tischeben, aber jetzt gibt es ein paar Hügel.
    Ich treffe auf den Ohio & Erie Canalway, dem ich morgen folgen werde.
    Ich beziehe ein schönes, geräumiges Ferienhaus mit Seeblick, das zum Preis eines Motelzimmers vermietet wird. Ich mache die Heizung an und fresse den Kühlschrank leer.Read more

    September 2, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 15 °C

    Unsere 2. Übernachtung war in Woodstock/ Ontario - Canada. Der Ort hat nichts mit dem legendären Woodstockfestival in den 60er zu tun.
    Von dort fuhren wir heute zu den Niagara Falls.
    Es war sehr beeindruckend ☺
    Mit einem Boot kamen wir ganz nah an die Wasserfälle heran. Trotz Regenponcho wurden wir ordentlich nass.
    Nachdem wir einigermaßen trocken waren, fuhren wir über die Brücke wieder zurück in die USA.
    Unser nächstes Hotel ist in der Nähe von Cleveland/Ohio.

    Kent State 30 years after

    April 5, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 3 °C

    Dale and I attended Kent State in the 1970s, a few years after the shootings on May 4 1970. Since then the campus has expanded and still seems to be in the midst of a building boom. Pictures are of the campus today, the memorial and it’s famous black squirrels.Read more
