Originally, I was set to leave my dear friends in Kentucky this afternoon and drive to Newport, Ohio. I can’t tear myself away from this military town, however, and have decided to stay another day and deviate from my previously planned route. Tomorrow I’ll drive 5 hours to an ice cream factory, take a tour, and then stop in Erie, Pennsylvania for the night. I don’t lose any time, and I get to spend an extra day with people I love.
Mile update: I’m a mere 981 miles from my destination! So far I’ve covered beautiful 1,172 miles.
