Heading out early we spent the day crossing Pennsylvania and heading to Ohio, and I got my first chance to drive the ‘ol tin can during this trip.  My two hours behind the wheel were a pretty good experience for me. Although I had driven this RV before, a 24′ Thor Elite motor home,  it was a little of a challenge when it started to rain, and I had to jockey to keep up with the massive long-haul tractor trailers, giant FedEx tandem trucks, car trailers, and just about every type of truck you can imagine traveling on Rte. 80W/Pennsylvania Turnpike.

We’re heading just south of Cleveland to stay for the night. Tomorrow, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a peak at lake Erie!

“It’s a fast paced life here on the road” from “America Moves by Truck” by Jack Kapanka, our song of the day.


Chicken sausages are really good on a rainy night!

  • Sear in olive oil in a small Le Creuset
  • Turn heat down,  then add finely chopped onions, green peppers and tomatoes (I used all of the veggies that were starting to go bad).
  • Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Serve in rolls, with good mustard and cold beer!  NO grease! Pretty quick and easy.
