I-90 and the RV/Motorhome Museum

Our destination was the Finger Lakes, in New York, about 800 miles from home. We got the house closed up and were on the road before 11:00 am.

It would be late September by the time we make it to Washington state, and October on the northwest coast and in the mountains is getting pretty iffy weather-wise, especially with the truck camper (not as well insulated and pretty cramped on crummy days).

Time for plan B.
