This is what we encountered in the Mid Atlantic states. Some of it was due to construction, some due to too many people on the road. I thought most of the rude drivers were in Florida (sorry Florida, but it’s my experience). I just don’t understand how people can think that they can jump lanes, right in front of 40′ of metal and wheels and when they slam on their brakes get upset that we are standing on our noses trying to stop before hitting them!!!! That and the texting drivers. Don’t these people pay attention to signs for NO HANDHELD PHONES for drivers???? I can’t tell you how many people we almost came in contact with!!! Remember, I drive a big red ambulance for a living, I see how people are and it infuriates me! Whew…enough of that!

Interesting part of the trip in New Jersey (?!). We were tired, unable to find a place to stay on Wednesday night, so we pulled into a service plaza and decided to stay there. Thanks to the State Lines app, I knew that this was legal. The gas attendant even told us where to pull the motorhome to. We squeezed in between 2 semi’s and called it a night! While that was never on my bucket list, I added it and then crossed it off!!! Next morning, after a pretty good night’s sleep, we cleaned up, went inside for coffee and breakfast, walked Sasha and off we went…destination: Mohegan Sun Casino!

First we had to go through New York City….tolls from the start of the George Washington Bridge to the Bronx….$60.00!!! REALLY????????? You would think we were paying for the construction all by ourselves! And once again, bumper to bumper! So glad to get through that! Once we did, and could pull over, we checked with the bike…she had managed to loosen up 2 of her straps. Bad Girl!!! We spent the better part of the trip worrying about her and the trailer.

We finally made it to Mohegan Sun and found the Turtle Lot. The really nice Security Guard took our paperwork and gave us a permit. Sasha had a nice little walk, we settled her in, and off to gamble we went. I am so not a gambler…I quite before I lost all the cash I brought. Fortunately I only took a little bit!! Ate at a really nice Irish Pub. I decided I couldn’t afford Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain! Had a nice Mac and Cheese and A Sam Adams, Paul had the Prime Rib special and a Sam Adams and we were set. We then decided that we would forgo the Turtle Lot and drive the rest of the trip to Kingston. We pulled in at just after 7pm. What a relief!!
