Road Trip Day One Part Two

We’re on the road on the Ohio Turnpike, close to Toledo.
It’s raining. Purification from the first part of the trip.
So at about 7:30, our bus started leaking coolant and overheating. We sat on the side of the road for about 3 hours before we got a new bus to switch to.
Everything we had carefully packed I the bus, in daylight, now had to be moved and repacked on the side of a dark road, at the midnight hour.
But we got back on the road and that’s enough to make us happy.
I’m not a travel pillow fan – I pulled out my regular- sized pillow and promptly fell asleep. In case you were wondering, it’s not comfortable to sleep on the bus. But I had maybe 3 hours the night before so I was beat!
Woke up at 5ish with an urgent need for a bathroom, but my desire to not ever pee in a little receptacle in a moving vehicle was stronger than my bladder urgings, so I suppressed the desire to pee by going back to sleep and only getting up when we stopped at the rest stop.
Now that it’s raining. I am just happy that the rain held up until after I used the bathroom. Because nothing makes you want to use the bathroom more.
So we’re still about 6 hours away from the campsite and fun, fun, fun.
More later.

Signs that we are far away from home. Hardee’s. We don’t have those in New York City.
