Sorry for the late posting of this Sunday blog:
Once the racing wrapped up, we settled our concessions bill, packed up our camping gear in the car … YES, I said CAR … said our good byes and headed towards New Jersey. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, we had delivered our VW to Jersey this past March so that our daughter, the Editor, could use it this summer while she’s home from college. We had pre-planned to spend the week ahead visiting with family and friends and then return to the bike route on Saturday, June 4th.
Around sunset, we bid everyone goodbye and headed to Gmom’s house for the night. Many a times, we’ve camped with our 5th wheel in Gmom’s and Pop Pop’s yard … and we offered to stay in our tent … but Gmom suggested we try out the Murphy bed that Frankenbutt’s brother had made for Gmom. It was clever, well made and quite comfortable. I immediately told Frankenbutt I need him to make one for our home. We slept like logs with Coco in our bed and her nemesis, Oliver Underfoot (Gmom’s cat) scratching at the door. I decided these were at least 4 star accommodations that came with a hot breakfast in the morning! I highly recommend the Gmom Inn!
Check back shortly for our Monday (Memorial Day) blog … getting caught up!
