Mostly a driving day.Decided at the last minute to drive to Buffalo via Cleveland rather than Pittsburgh. I hear Cleveland rocks. We’ll see.

Left the house at 10:49 and was out of Winston by 11:30. Stopped for gas in Wytheville VA and got a drink just north of Charleston WV. Made a Kroger run in Ripley WV. Stopped at a rest area/welcome center just inside Ohio. More gas in Cambridge OH, plus a stop at Riesbeck’s supermarket. Dinner at White Castle in Canton OH. Arrived at the Red Roof Inn in Middleburg Heights (outside Cleveland) about 8:30. Made a quick run to Marc’s supermarket, Giant Eagle, and Get-go.

The wi-fi really sucks here and the TV remote doesn’t work. It was surprisingly warm today. Radio was bad.
