The day began with Nadine leading her Wednesday Morning Bible Study group at church, while Mark finished up some last-minute items in his office. When the study was over, the Bible study group reconvened in the church parking lot, where they popped the corks on a couple of bottles of (non-alcoholic) champagne. Then they gave Rosie (our Roadtrek camper van) a proper christening by pouring champagne on one of Rosie's front tires. Then, after a round of hugs, we were off!
Our goal for the day was to get past Cleveland OH, so that we wouldn't face rush hour traffic the next morning. We ended up spending the night in a McDonald's parking lot right off I-80 near Elyria OH. As Joy and Paul put it, we're "livin' the dream": sleeping in a van in a McDonald's parking lot!
