We left early this morning with the intentions of getting to Sandusky Ohio.  But there was nothing now that could keep Rusty from getting home early.  He was determined to get there as fast as possible.  Even Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio couldn't lure him to stay on the road one more day.  This coaster junkie gave up the world's largest roller coaster collection including 7 thrill rides and 16 roller coasters where more than half of them were rated as aggressive thrill rides, the highest extreme rating. 
He was home sick and had been insistently working on getting there for the past week.  Even though we had already been shortening up the trip, it just wasn't quick enough for Rusty.  He was willing to skip Niagara Falls, but Ellen put her foot down.  Rusty was glad that was over!  So we zoomed right by Sandusky and instead of Ohio as our destination, we drove through Toledo, Indianapolis with our sights on Effingham, Missouri.   We decided to put an end to Rusty's misery and head for Missouri.  We would not only skip Cedar Point, but Chicago and Branson Missouri as well.  We were high tailing it home!  Ellen had one last hope of possibly seeing the Arch.  So we pulled into a Walmart parking lot at about midnight.  The kids had been asleep for hours.  When we pulled into the parking lot, we found this to be quiet the hot spot for truckers.  The trucks were pulled in tight to each other and had made two full rows of 30 trucks....we were the beginning of a third row.  Who knew we would find ourselves in "truckers row".  Feeling safer than safe in "trucker land" we went straight to sleep.
