Mr. Trucker says this is all related to the song "Cleveland Rocks", which is apparently the theme song for the Drew Carey show. Driving through Cleveland we saw sights such as:
|Think this sign could be any bigger|
or more obvious?
|Don't know what this is but it had|
Anyway, we started the day in Ohio, spent about two minutes in Pennsylvania (cut across the northwest corner) and now we're in New York. It has threatened rain all morning and finally started raining in earnest about 30 minutes ago, which is a shame, because upstate New York is very beautiful, full of old farmhouses and vineyards.
We should be in our destination just outside of Syracuse by late afternoon. Our delivery appointment isn't until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, so we'll just have to cool our heels at some truck stop for the evening. Sometimes these truck stops are within walking distance of places of interest and sometimes they're not. When I went out with Mr. Trucker in July, we stayed at a Pilot in Erie Pennsylvania, which LOOKED like it was within walking distance of something, so that night we went out for a a walk. We kept trudging on and on thinking: "I'm sure there's something over that next hill" and before we knew it we had walked 3.8 miles. The reason I know it was 3.8 is because we ended up taking a taxi back to the truck. It was about 97 degrees that day and I was exhausted, plus it was dark by the time we were ready to go back. Mr. Trucker probably could have made it back to the truck on his own, but he'd have had to drag me the whole way.
Strange sounding town name for today: Ashtabula, OH.
And if anyone knows how to pronounce the town of Conneaut, OH, please enlighten the rest of us!
