Notes from the Road

This time, we were the slowpokes on the interstate, but that meant there was plenty of time for people watching. It's pretty funny, the looks we get as other drivers pass. Here you have the old, slow Turtle and people are expecting a couple matching the turtle in age. And nope! Two young "kids" manning the controls... But as Nick was driving, I had my pencil ready for my travel observations...

*Where would we be without billboards? How else will I know that the world's largest prairie dog in only 40 miles away? Seriously, the billboards do make traveling easier, at least anticipating where food and gas might be next.

*Inspection stations only work if they actually inspect something....

*You don't get much rest at a rest stop sandwiched between the interstate and an active train track.

*Trucks like driving at night - easier on the eyes then dealing with the sun...

*Safety Corridor - a fancy way of saying boring road that people like to drive fast on, so we'll make some extra money here...

*We know you're jealous of the Turtle, but please, don't stare. And it's not like you can't see us from miles, so a little space is nice.

*You can tell the target age for the RV Resort by the number of grab bars in the shower rooms!!

I'm sure there will be more - the Turtle seems to attract a lot of attention!
