Day 2 of Going Home

We left Mike and Lou's at about 10:30 yesterday morning. I took my time driving. Although we went through Pennsylvania, W Virginia and ended up in Ohio, I don't think we drove more than 200 plus miles. I did stop to get necessities twice and stopped for an hour at the Wheeling Island Casino -loved it and wish I had more time there.
We also stopped at the West Virginia Welcome Center. It was an awful place to walk dogs - between the truck lot and the car lot. They didn't even have a trash can for poop bags. I have to also say that I found the Pittsburgh area to not be dog friendly. I called a couple restaurants that had patios and they didn't allow dogs even on the patios. I have been spoiled by the Austin area.

At about 3:30 I started looking for campgrounds. It's surprising how few are here in Ohio - at least where I have been driving. So, once again my stop is -

The Motel 6 here in Grove City, Ohio is very pet friendly. They gave us poop bags (we had our own but that was nice) and dog biscuits.

As you can see next to my key, they are almost as big as the dogs, but Zooey took hers. I haven't looked to see what she ate of it, but this morning she has been throwing up. She seems okay right now. I will watch her. I am doing laundry and then we will head off. I actually made reservations to stay at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas for 2 nights starting Thursday, so we have 2 days to go about 440 miles. That should work. I have always wanted to go there and search for diamonds. I am going to try to buy some diamond searching tools at Target or Walmart today :-)

  1. Hotel camping is the best. I hope you find diamond searching tools. (What department is that?)
