Dining At The Buckhorn

Well, we're back on the road again after being home for a little over three weeks. I know I say this all the time, but I love being back on the road. When I get behind the wheel, I always feel like it's my first time driving a truck. It takes me a while to get into the swing of things and I'm always tired for the first few days; the truck has a nasty habit of lulling me to sleep at the most inconvenient times; like two hours after I got up!

We took our first load from Tucson to Chicago and then from Chicago to New Jersey. I'm happy to report there were still some fall colors showing and the temperature is right where I like it, at sixty or below.

Tonight, since I hadn't taken food out to make dinner, Ed decided we'd just hit the Buckhorn Restaurant (see photo) in the T/A. I was happy with that and ordered one of my favorites, an open-faced pot roast sandwich. Funny that a truckstop makes good pot roast, but they do, and although it's a little saltier then I would like, it's still pretty freakin' delicious. After dinner, we headed back to the truck for dessert and Grey's Anatomy. A perfect night on the road for me.
Tomorrow we'll deliver our load in the morning and then meet up with
our friends who happen to be in the area for the weekend. We saw a few remnants of the snow that hit the east coast last week, but if you didn't see the news about it, you'd have no idea, although I'm sure the people without power would disagree - they're still feeling the effects of the storm. But, it is sunny and beautiful, and feels just like Fall should.

Tomorrow, jeans and my brand new sweatshirt. Zippered of course, because I still have to layer in this weather; I never know when I'll hit an indoor blast of heat, so I have to be prepared.

See you on the road!

The Buckhorn as in the TA truckstop/restaurant along I-80 in central PA? Now you're hitting close to my turf, Girlfriend! I spent about 5 years, total, in the employ of TA but at their place in Milesburg, PA. Glad you enjoyed the pot roast!
