Way to go Michelle, nothing but rain and above freezing temps here tonight, but a change is coming later this week. In the picture of Bob and you, it looks like ice coming out of the water heater. Is that my imagination?

Welcome to Ohio!

Michelle found a roadside stop that had a dump station just after entering Minnesota on monday afternoon. She opened her water drain & HW heater to find that neither would drain. The HW heater drained (and froze along the side) on the way down I-94. The water tank thawed (unthawed in the local dialect) only after she was in my driveway and the furnace had a chance to catch up with 65 mph windchill. The driveway skating rink is nothing out of the ordinary for what I experience several times every winter. Draining this readily would suggest she had nothing more than a problem at the valve. I've towed in weather like this but only with empty tanks.

Hi Michelle,
Be safe and enjoy Neil Armstrong Museum, John and I were there last year while our AS was at JC getting worked on. We really enjoyed it and the little town there is great for antiqueing if you have more time to spend.
Keep us posted and can't wait to see you and Sarah the kitty at the Women's Rally in March!

Hi Michelle, we have really enjoyed tracking your adventure. Sounds like a long hard trip. Hope you can relax after your arrival.
Are you a firefighter? If so we here in Sun Valley really owe y'all a debt of
gratitude from our Aug. fire. Happy trails and stay safe, Warm Regards,
John & Betty

Michelle hasn't logged in since early Wed AM at my house. I have a message on my phone from the last hour -- they "made it to the factory last night after 14 hours on the road. Not doing that again." With a cheery tone she declared they're back on schedule. Congrats! Now it's time to relax and take some baby steps the rest of your way south.

Michelle, have fun on your travels down south. Here in Chatt Town, it is a balmy (or rather cloudy) 60 degrees. Let me know if you come through Chattanooga. I don't have room in my driveway but will be glad to show you some good places to layover. Happy trails!

Drive safe, Michelle. We are all watching the weather and looking at your travels.

I am a firefighting pilot. I was not involved with the Sun Valley area fires. When it all started I was flying a fire at Creaters of the Moon. They were stealing our resources. We could nto get a tanker to save our lives.

Glad to hear you arrive JC safely and enjoy your visit to the museums.
John's parent met at Wright Patterson after WWII, his father was a pilot too. We visited Air Force Museum last year and it was the most amazing experience we both had. Don't forget to take the tour to the Air Force One exhibit.

Can't wait to hear all about your trip and see photos of your adventure in March!

Enjoy and be safe.

We arrive, we saw, we bolted! With the weather approaching We cut short the visit to WPAFB and headed back to JC. Picked up the trailer and Left town. We hit Columbus ruch hour. It was not too bad. Stopped for the evening in Morgantown, WV, Headed into Maryland this morning. I dropped off my passenger. Headed south and parked the trailer for a few days in Northern Virginia.
I will be leaving here on Wednesday? and headed indirectly for Florida.
