Returning from North Carolina April 1-2, 2013.
After the West Virginia Turnpike, I got off I-77 at Ripley and took US-33 again, this time heading northwest toward Columbus, Ohio.
I was surprised to see a rest area along the highway that was open. You don't see a lot of rest areas on U.S. highways, just interstates. I also passed an Ohio Bicentennial barn, with logo facing southeast. I did not see it on my way down, of course.
Picked up a good radio station, WYSO, 91.3 FM, playing blues this Monday. Sure enjoyed their selection.
It was getting quite dark by now (April 1st) and I decided to go to Dayton. Got off at what is now a regular eating spot, the Skyline Chili place at Exit 39, I think. Filled up there and then went next door and got a room at the Super 8 for $38 with tax. Nothing great, but I was ready to go to sleep after the long drive today, 630 miles.
Gas was $3.60 at the Dayton exit. MPG now at 31.1
