On the Move, Days 3, 4, and 5

Our travel across country continues. On Tuesday, we did make it to Albuquerque, where we were able to appreciate the hospitality of our friend, Janice, who works for Honeywell there. We spent Wednesday night at a rest area in Texas that commemorated Route 66. This has to be the fanciest rest area that I’ve seen in the USA, including interactive multimedia presentations and the complete art deco architecture and interior decoration. It is now Thursday evening, and we are in Vinita, Oklahoma, where the McDonald’s restaurant that spans I-44 proclaims itself to be the world’s largest. The trip odometer is currently a bit over 1,800 miles.

There is some bad weather expected moving in tomorrow evening, so we hope to make an early start and push on as far as we can go before that catches up with us. My parents think that we may reach Indianapolis tomorrow. We’ll see.

    Hey, we stopped at that McDonald’s, too! But I’m a little skeptical about the “World’s Largest” claim. There’s one on I-90 west of Buffalo that’s pretty huge, too.

    I’ve got a picture or two of the place that I will post when I get a chance to breathe a bit…
