Weekend Retreat

After delivering our load this morning, breakfast at Dunkin', a quick run to complete some errands, and about two hours at the laundromat tackling my mountain of laundry, we finally made it to the hotel (lobby photo courtesy of the Hilton website). Ed picked the place; to say I am pleased with the accomodations would be an understatement. Good job, baby!

The bed in the room is super cushy, and there's a sitting area on the other side of the room. The couch is where Ed will plant himself, feet up on the coffee table, and I will man the luxuriously large desk, computer laid out in front of me, coffee at one elbow, newspaper at the other. There's a stocked coffee/tea area, a microwave and a fridge. Plus, there's room service and a restaurant in the lobby.

This is where I'll spend the next few days, in air conditioning with just a few tasks on my "to-do" list. As much as I love the cocoon nature of my truck, with everything I need within arms length, I do like to get out once in a while. And since we haven't been able to get home for a few weeks due to this run, this hotel is the next best thing.

If you need me, send an email, because I don't think I'm going to answer the phone.

On another note, the May issue of Healthy Trucking Magazine is now out - look for it in truckstops nationwide. For those who don't frequent truckstops, click

A room in a Hilton beats camping out any day!
