RAPEA - Day 7 - Aliquippa PA to Marietta OH

You may have noticed that our final destination for today isn't where I said we were going on yesterday's blog. That's because MTC reserves the right to change the itinerary as he deems necessary and he does it quite often. I think he's just trying to keep me on my toes as navigator so I don't get bored and decide to take a nap. Naps are good. I miss naps.

I have always loved fresh fallen snow...from a big picture window...while sitting in front of a huge fireplace...while drinking a steaming cup of gluhwein. But now I see snow and my mind immediately goes to calculating how much time it takes for a broken hip to heal. Or helplessly sliding on black ice while driving. Lucky for us the dusting on the car and the flurries we had to drive through were minimal and we didn't encounter any ice.

But we did encounter two nuke plants and multiple nameless factories belching white vapor into the atmosphere. These plants are all along the WV side of the Ohio River on a road called Energy Drive. That was our view as we tooled along the Scenic Byway on the OH side of the river.

Beginning tonight we'll spend four nights at this location but we may be taking day trips from here beginning tomorrow morning. The Mothman legend has me intrigued and it's only an hour and a half away so we'll head there in the morning. 

Nothing truly interesting happened today unless I count seeing a large flag flying at someone's house with a picture of Rambo's body holding an AK with Trump's head and Trump 2021 in large print. I hope Rambo doesn't sue!
