Stopped at the Flying J at 11:49 EDT near New Haven, IN for coffee.  While Steve was getting his coffee on the youtube chat, Flying in the WV was offering road crew drinks and food.  BRS discusses the fine print of “Buy one, get one” as we roll out eventually onto I-469 north.

Loves near Pendleton, IN at 16:28 for a CAT scale and a tandem slide.  BRS said, need to move the tandems one hole and ended up going two holes.  “I know we are good, but going to spin around and make sure.” “77,500 on the dot.” Then BRS began singing, “everybody do the tandem slide.”  Steve then said, “I got a headache, so I’m going to give everybody a headache.”  (Certainly Jim-Janet Martin will not be amused.)  BRS said let’s get coffee, ok?
