Maine to Ohio
The Super 8 in Danbury was a pretty good room. It was a second floor room 2 doors down the hall from the elevator. Dinner was a Philly Cheese Steak at the Windmill Diner. Decent food but nothing to write home about.
Found my hotel at Exit 180 of the Ohio Turnpike. I am not impressed with the hotel. The assigned me a room that is 2 doors from the opposite corner of the hotel from the lobby, Bar/Restaurant, and Breakfast. When I went to looking for the ice machine (the hotel map shows just down the hall from my room) there was no ice machine.
Had a coupon for $3 on beverage, and was tired, so figured to had a brew and burger the the hotel. That was a mistake. Took forever to get my burger. The fries were "limp" - not crisp at all.
beer was decent - one from Yuengling, Americas oldest brewery.
Sent message to fraternity brothers that I arrived town. One has contacted me to meet tomorrow evening. Now its time to get horizontal, watch TV and plan my visit to the Cleveland area.
