Midtown Savannah, Ga.

Tonight we have stopped at the brand new Hampton Inn in beautiful midtown Savannah, Ga. We have done little more than drive and eat. States passed through include Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

Interstate 81 is more congested with trucks in Virginia than I like. The trucks like to get side by side and climb hills together. The problem is that they like to take the challenge slowly, which backs up traffic behind the coupled trucks. This does not make for a pleasant driving experience for the rest of the motoring public.

We thought we had a reservation at the Hampton Inn at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport but we did not. A few quick fingers on an iPad and we had the last room at the next closest Hampton Inn. Apparently it was the last room, period, for the entire city of Savannah because Bike Week is gearing up and people are staying in this area on their way down to Florida. I-95 should be a hoot tomorrow.

I’m going to get some rest.
