Early in my life I liked to snack as I drove. Pork skins, potato chips, candy and a Pepsi. Many folk snack as they drive, it helps pass the time. That is why so many rest areas have the vending machines. Of course there is some safety to eating and drinking, you do not fall asleep. I am asked a lot about our eating and driving as we travel.
(I love Barns too, like my fellow blogger, the Chatty one)
If we take off early (early is 9AM), Sherry will have us a cup of coffee usually left over from Breakfast. I honestly seldom eat prepared snacks anymore as I drive. If I eat it is usually fruit. We do not stop unless it is for fuel. Ahhh, and there is the rub. We use Flying J and Pilot truck stops. They have some great Cappuccino machines. I am a sucker for a big hot cup, it is all good, but I love French Vanilla.
(This was a great sight, the cherries were delicious and room to pull the RV off, upper Michigan, I think) )
So while I am filling the tank and throwing $100 bills at the pump with a credit card, Sherry is retrieving what ever flavor is not out or broke. (Those machines are famous for breaking down). I get my feelings hurt when she brings coffee out . About every three months she will come out with a sweet cake, especially IF THERE IS A HOMEMADE LOOKING BROWNIE in there.
Grapes and apples are good to eat driving. Sherry has peeled oranges, tangerines and grapefruit. Noon or mid afternoon, she might find the p-nut butter jar, crackers and green tea. But normally all day that girl eats ice. I keep telling her it is very fattening! Of course most of her day is taken up in Bible reading and Prayer (due to my driving) .
There are times she will fix sandwiches going down the road, but only if we are on a long stretch of interstate.
On long stretches with little traffic if I must make a head call, she will slip into the drivers seat and I can answer the call of nature. She is a good driver but still refuses to pull into a fuel stop or drive in town, except in an emergency (when I gotta go!).
(I call this a truck sandwich, we are pulling in as the meat)
(This guy had a beautiful 39/40 Ford)
One of my favorite things on the road, is looking for older cars. The next thing is reading where the trucks are from. So many bring back memories of previous destinations. They are from all states, towns and cities, many we have visited..(Sherry reads car tags)
Thanks for coming by the log, I know you could be elsewhere.
It is not only the destination, but the trip that is exciting.
This is a 1960s Dodge I believe. I know it is a Chrysler product.
