Well we decided to stop half way to Nashville, and decided to settle for a day in a small town called Buckeye lake, near Columbus Ohio.  As you can see by photos that we had a bit of a run in with a big american truck, which resulted in a loss of our right hand wing mirror, the guy was really laid back about it and insurance details were exchanged, then to the local police station to report the prang where the very friendly cop exchanged patches with terry but actually cuttting his patch of his shirt sleeve (i wouldve preferred the whole shirt but cant be greedy) he couldnt have been more helpful.

So after a nine hour drive never gonna do that again (does this sound familiar) me and liz have put our foot down cus we cant stand the bbrrrrr sounds.    We arrived in Buckeye after stopping off for rations and the token boxes of wine and settled in evie the r.v for the night where we had wine and swordfish steaks (yummy), and started on the sugar rush of m & ms and peanut brittle, which nobody wanted but managed to eat it all in one go.

Today we went for a long walk around the buckeye lake (see photos) and was totally surprised by the scenery it was beautiful and the lakeside properties were amazing.  On the last bit back to evie the r.v we stopped off at scooters the typical american local bar where everyone there was really friendly one guy insisted on paying for us to play a game of pool.    Terry made friends with stu and hisbuddies after they bonded over their cigarettes and beer.   We were really settled in for the afternoon there with our cold beer and iced glasses (they do like their beer cold).     Its expected to get down to  minus 1 tonight but we are all ready to light our fire ring tonight will have some photos of this tomoz.
 Next stop is louisville for an overnight stay before moving onto nashville tennesse
