I am driving off to Akron, OH tomorrow. According to MapQuest, it’s about a 5 hour drive each way. I am planning on taking my time on the drive.
I got my oil changed yesterday. I got my car washed also. That wasn’t necessary for the trip, but it really needed it. I have been burning some audio books to CD to listen to for the many hours of driving. I need to download maps to my GPS unit for the Akron area, but I’ll do that tonight. I printed out a map from MapQuest anyway as a backup. I will clean my car out tonight, and get some of my stuff loaded up.
Then tomorrow morning, I’ll swing by the gas station, fill my gas tank, and get on the road.
I am hoping to make it to the hotel early to mid afternoon. I may spend some time exploring a little bit, maybe find something eat for dinner. The hotel doesn’t seem to have a pool, but they do have a hot tub anyway. According to hotels.com, the hotel has a gym/fitness facilities. But interestingly I don’t see it listed on the hotel’s own web site. I guess I will find out tomorrow.
