So I have now traveled from the tarheel state (what the hell is a tarheel anyway) to the keystone state. I found out mid afternoon on Tuesday that I did not have to work on Wednesday, so I decided to avoid traffic and drive up late Tuesday night. The trip was fine but I had a few thoughts as I drove.

1. They should start to sell dog treats in the vending machines at rest areas. I know this sounds silly, but really if they sell everything else why not dog or cat treats. And also I would have given Logan a treat/bribe to get him back into the car so that we could keep going. He love to ride in the car, but he wanted to play outside longer than I wanted to stop. I didn't bring any treats with me as I knew my parents had some here, but if they had little treat bags like they sell junk food for humans for dogs, I definitely would have gotten one.

2.I always pass Nicodemus Road on my way up here and I always think of this movie/book. But when I looked it up on wikipedia, I found out that that Nicodemus was a follower of Jesus. Now I know.

3. Not long after Nicodemus Rd. is Challedon Rd. I have always wondered what Challedon was. It turns out it was a race horse from the 1930s and 1940s. Now I know this as well.

Other than that it was an uneventful, but late trip.

I think vending treats for pets is a brilliant idea.

Glad your trip went well.
