I don’t take a lot of roadtrips now that I’m a father of two and have a wife with chronic health problems.
- The only time I’m on the road longer for more than a few hours is when my employer needs me to visit an important client.
Last week I had to drive straight to Toledo, Ohio without air travel. Even though I’m compensated for the gasoline, I don’t like putting the wear and tear on my car. When I packed my car and planned the trip itinerary on my phone, I realized that the trip would take at least two days. I would need to stop for the night on the first day, but I don’t like sleeping in my car on the side of the internet at a car stop because of the horrible stories I’ve heard over the years. Based on where I expected to be around 8pm that day, I would be driving through Indiana near Evansville. Stopping in a hotel in Evansville seemed like a great idea, especially if I could get a room with a view of the Ohio river. That led me to stay in Goosetown near Mickey’s Kingdom Park to be exact. I arrived at around 8:30pm and had a chance to look at the river the second I got out of my car. I was amazed at the sight and could barely make out Sigeco Beach on the other side of the river. Unfortunately the air conditioner in the hotel wasn’t working properly and I had to be moved to a room that doesn’t have a view of the river. I’d rather be in a room with a working air conditioner and heater, but I was disappointed that I missed out on my view of the Ohio River during my trip to Evansville, Indiana.
