We have made it to Lafayette, Indiana. Got the bus out of the trailer, so we could run to a laundry mat . No lights. Light switch brock. One of the connection post came off . Guess it's a day light only driver, until I get home. ](*,) ](*,)
Also, we are changing our plans. Trying to get to the coast, in the shortest route. Any help on roads would be appreciated.
Shooting for Daytona Ohio tomorrow

If the inner harbor counts as the coast then Baltimore might be your shortest route, at least as the bird flies. If you want to hit the Atlantic then maybe somewhere along the Deleware/Jersey coast. Newport News or Virginia Beach may be shorter but would likely take you through the W. Virginia mountains and slow you down.

Do you or Rob have a Strava account? Their route builder on the desktop version does a good job of plotting a course while staying off of interstates and such, and it's pretty easy to tweak routes by dragging and dropping sections around.
Meh.

On the outskirts of Dayton Ohio. Rv park doing Landry.
We are looking at, Ocean city, or Virginia Beach. Let's just say we are waffling. :-" Rob can't make up his mind. ](*,)

This old man is getting tired. I LOOK more like a sheepdog with all my white whiskers. Haven't shaved in two weeks.
Man the hills are steep out here. They are not as long as out west . No flat roads today.
One of the biggest climbing days of the trip. We made it past Pittsburgh. Hopefully, we will be done Saturday. O:)
