Willoughby, Ohio.

Navigator., originally uploaded by iMachias.

Earl and I are settled into the Days Inn in Willoughby, Ohio tonight. Earlier this week he proclaimed to me that it had been entirely too long since we went on a weekend long road trip so when he got home early from work today, we hopped into the Jeep and headed west.

I was originally going to head us into Michigan so that we could meet up with blogger friend Terry, but Terry is out of town on work so we are going to save that trip for the fall. Therefore, I have no idea where we are going tomorrow. The only constraint is that we have to keep the ride home on Sunday under 12 hours.

Earl is the principal navigator and has been wired with GPS. As you can see in the photo, he is very attentive to road signs and other important markings.


  1. Hey, you’re right in my neck of the woods. I’m going to be in Willoughby on Sunday for an art show that my mom wants me to go to with her. Headlands Beach State Park in Mentor is nice… There’s the Holden Arboretum, Garfield’s House. TJ’s on the Avenue is good Italian… Of course there’s also a ton of stuff in Cleveland…

    Have fun!

  2. I do love hearing about your adventures and road trips. Though a 12 hour or less drive made me think. I suppose because the USA is so large that’s probably “normal”; I think though a 12 hour drive from where we live would put us at the other end of the UK!

    Oh, and Earl does the same kind of navigating as I do. But luckily TomTom doesn’t mind taking over 😉
