Our plan for this winter is to get in the car and head for Arizona and Nevada. We booked some timeshare in Scottsdale but this got cancelled due to some other requirements (another post). We have a week booked in Sedona and then a week in Las Vegas. Then we have a condo rented for two months and then plan to head to Mazatlan for two weeks before flying back to Vegas and then a leisurely, no plans, drive back home.
We left Toronto on Monday, November 26 and stopped to visit friends who have kindly offered to keep an eye on our home while we are gone. After a great visit, with muffins thrown in for the drive, we left at 10:30 and headed to the US border which was much busier than we envisioned on a Monday morning.
Once we were through we passed through Buffalo where there was snow!
We crossed into Pennsylvania early afternoon. We decided not to stop for lunch but rather just grabbed subs and ate them on the drive.
The plan is to get as far as we can in the first few days so that we can slow down and enjoy some heat and sunshine once we are further south/west.
Next state was Ohio.
We headed towards Columbus and arrived in Springfield Ohio around 6PM and checked into the Hampton Inn. The room was nice and we decided to go out and get some cheeses and wine for dinner as we were surrounded by fast food joints.
