|This journey starts as we pull out of our home at 10:30 am for the drive to our first stop. The plan is to drive to Beckley WV and spend the night at the truck stop. Our neighbor, Roger is riding to Charlotte NC with us and his son is going to meet us so Roger can spend the next week or so with him. Our trip takes us along the Ohio Turnpike east to I-77 south over by Cleveland. We will travel south on I-77 to Beckley WV. The Akron – Canton road is a disaster with construction plus at one point the exit to I-77 was closed and no detour, you were on your own to find a way to get back on I-77, thank you Ohio. We arrive at the Beckley truck stop and believe it or not, it was full, no place to park. We had driven 427 miles so we needed to find somewhere to spend the night and we had room to park the motorhome. We ended up getting a room at Microtel hotel for the night. This was a very long day for us since we usually only drive between 200 and 250 miles per day. Now I remember why we only drive that few miles, very tiring.
