Cabin Trip 2014 - First Day on the Road

We got away in good time this morning -- 6:30 a.m.

The drive went well, although we had rain through most of Pennsylvania. We are now in Mishawaka, Indiana at a Red Roof Inn (pet friendly!). We have fed and walked the dogs (who are very needy) and we just ordered a pizza to be delivered (Vesuvio's Pizza: sausage, green pepper, black olives and mushrooms as well as a garden salad). It will be late before we eat, probably 8:30, so bed not long after that.

I forgot my hardback book at home. I'd just started Michael McGarrity's Back Lands -- the second in a series. His books are all New Mexico based with lots of history and stories of the area where I grew up and went to school. Most of his books have been murder mysteries, but the first in this series starts the back story of his protagonist character. It is a big dense book with great story telling. We tried to find a copy in a couple of book stores along the way to the cabin with no luck. So, after struggling to get this Internet connection, I downloaded it to my iPad.

I hope our food comes soon!
