Hello, I’m Elina. Welcome to follow my journey with my husband Heikki across North America. In this blog, you can get a behind-the-scenes look what life is like on the road.
Thursday 5.20.21 We made it
Last night, it was not easy for us to get to our place to sleep. Our first attempt was unsuccessful, there was no more space. The second location was just over 20 miles / 30 km away and there was plenty of space. We had a few minutes of driving time left upon arrival. This place is under renovation and seems to be becoming a good truck stop.
We were not allowed to leave before 11:00 a.m. today. We had time to go for a walk and have breakfast before leaving. We had over 600 miles / 1,000 km ahead of us. Heikki called the unloading site and we get to go there for the night and be there in the morning ready yo be unloaded. We can take the tarps off today, it will speed up unloading tomorrow morning.
The sky was cloudy, but the air was warm. Our air conditioning did the trick again, but it almost fixed itself when we popped into the Dignity Statue rest area. It would have been too hot to sit without an air conditioning!
