We've been enamored with the ability to enjoy our home on wheels, no matter where we park it. Being on the road now and trying to cover long distances it is wonderful to be able to avail ourselves of free overnight parking at establishments that welcome RVs - Walmart, Cracker Barrel and our favorite: Flying Js.
Walmarts cost me too much money, because of Marti's "retail therapy". Something about needing to unwind and stretch her legs walking around the store, usually ending up with a full shopping cart. ;c)
Flying J doesn't have shopping carts, they have much more important things we need. Like nice parking areas for RVs.
You won't find Yellow Box sandals (Marti's favorite) here. Better things, sort of a one stop shop for all the Journey's needs. Even an occasional nice sunset every once and a while. ;c)
I enjoy that I can fill my fuel tank at an easily accessible RV island, with a hose nozzle that is car sized instead of the monster high flow nozzles on the truck islands. I can also fill up my propane tank as well as my fresh water tank while being able to dump my black and gray tanks.
I pull out with three full tanks and two empty tanks, ready once again to roll down the road.
We stopped at Marti’s sister’s house outside of Akron, Ohio for a quick visit. Her sister lives on a dead end street, and after checking with the police, we got permission to park in front of her house for two nights.
We’ve had a whirlwind fun time but tomorrow we have to make tracks to Sioux Falls. According to Map Quest, we have about 950 miles to cover over the next few days. You can be sure we’ll be making a few more Flying J stops.
