BrentRN got here at 1930 from Philly. Ten hour and almost exactly 600 miles. Fuel light came on at 580 miles.

I'm encamped in Miamisburgh, OH for the night. Jatro Diesel opens at 08:30 tomorrow morning and I'll be on my way to Lexington shortly there after.

What's their fuel price going for? I'll have to stop on the way down. I went on a Saturday one day, failing to realize they were not open. Would be my first fill of B99, been running B20.

When I called about a week ago to re-confirm their hours and price they stated it, but I really don't recall what they said. It was around or just less than $4 so I didn't make note of it. Had they said $5, THAT I'd have remembered.
look for a PM from me.

Scratch that plan. I made a reservation for Friday, but when Icalled at 8pm to ask if I could check in tonight I was told yes, there was plenty of room. When I got to the desk at 8:55 all thy had left was two smoking rooms. I guess the fail goes to me on this one, for not confirming when I called.

Hopefully the Red Roof is safe.

Thumbs up

We left SE Louisiana @ 4:30am (cst) today & rolled in right at 12 hrs later.

We drove the Natchez Trace from Jackson, MS to just below Nashville. A little slower, but you don't get that nascar feeling. Low stress.

See ya'll tomorrow.
