I stayed 10 days at the Red Roof Inn at Willoughby, Ohio and found it to be a mixed bag. I arrived around 10:30 on the evening of the 7th Jan to receive a verging on rude and decidedly un-helpful reception from the night receptionist, to the point that, had I not already paid for 4 nights and it being 10:30pm on a very cold night, I would have walked out and gone elsewhere. Thankfully, I almost had no further contact with this person (but the two further times I did, I received no better attitude either time - a terrible person to have in customer service). Thankfully, the day time reception staff were far better to deal with. The house keeping staff were also a mixed bag - most were very good but one of the staff in particular barely seemed to know how to re-make a bed. The finished 're-make' was barely better than if I had just pulled up the sheets!! From a room point of view - there are three levels of rooms and I chose the middle 'Superior' option which included a bar fridge and microwave. The room was a good size, well appointed with good sized desk included, good bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. The only other issue I had staying at this hotel was the fact that every 4 hours, I had to log back in to the Wi-Fi, which was a pain to do, often necessitating a reboot to clear whatever was preventing me from re-connecting. Had it not been for, particularly, my experiences with the night reception person, but also the poor housekeeping skills of one of the staff, and the Wi-Fi headaches, I would have rated this with an extra star.

I left C******, Ohio to day after spending some very enjoyable times with Gary and Sandy - thank you both for your welcome and hospitality and thank you Gary for taking the time to share some of your wealth of Buick knowledge with during the process of putting that Buick 455 engine back together. I greatly enjoyed the time with you.

Out of a chance discussion with one of the hotel staff (thanks Carrie) about things to do in and around the area I learned of the Cross-Country skiing and snow-shoeing facility at the Chaplin Forest Reservation. As I have never tried either, off I went and had a great time - spent an hour getting use to Cross-Country skiing and then did an hour of Snow-Shoeing and enjoyed it too. Had I known earlier I would have gone several more times.

In Ohio, and a few other states, they salt the roads during Winter to help keep them free of ice and snow. Unfortunately, it has a few less desirable side affects. To aid in minimising this undesirable side affect people do interesting things to their (often) interesting vehicles!! Have a look at the attached photos. ...
... a 1969 Buick GS 400cid 2-door coupe with 18,000 original miles on it and a 1970 Buick GSX 455cid daily (Summer) driver, all in lovely condition.
So after talking all things Buick for awhile he took me off to his local machining shop. It turns out that the shop mainly earns it money from up-powering truck motors and building Truck-pull motors based on VERY large displacement MACK ...
Well, I arrived in C******, Ohio this evening after driving in snowy conditions for the last third of the way, which is a VERY interesting experience in itself!!
I arrived to a temperature of -9C with a wind chill factor adding another -9C to that making it -18C (0F in the ...
