Drove up to Cleveland. Found my way to Bellflower Rd and the old Sigma Chi house. It was the house we (the chapter) moved into in the summer of 1968. The house before was a short block away on Bellflower, but is not a parking lot.
For a Saturday, there was a log of traffic in the University Circle area. That, and many new, larger building, I did not dally in the area. I was not interested in walking up on campus.
Headed downtown, finding my way to E. 9th St. Parked on the pier (a block from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Walked around the pier and little park there. Took a couple photos. Nothing that I really needed to see.
The low tire pressure light came on. Started looking for a place to check the tire/ Found a closed aute dealer and garage that was working and helped me. Just aired up the tires. For some reason, the tire pressure were way out of whack. Left side were high (in the upper 30s) and the right were low (in the upper 20s). Got lost a couple times getting back to the interstate and hotel. The tires held pressure on the way back to the hotel.
Worked on packing the room and stretched my legs a little. Then time for some food. At the hotel desk they suggested Winking Lizard Tavern for a brew and burger. They had a large selection of craft beers on tap, but it seemed that they were out of the ones I were interested in. Settled for the Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold Lager. It was a palatable beer. Not as good as the amber ales I prefer. I had good timing. I was seated right away when I arrived. When I left, there was a long wiating line.
Now going to settle in for the night. Hopefully a good night's sleep. 500 miles to drive tomorrow.
