Hello from North Canton, Ohio!

Start time: 0940

Start odometer: 3147

Weather: Sunny and hot!




Spent the day getting to Canton, Ohio, where I was born and raised!


My Nephew Greg and I packed up our tents and headed out to a local restaurant for breakfast.  Greg had enough time to eat before having to head back to the airport for his flight home to Atlanta.  Again, Thank you Greg for a great time at the race and camping!


We were up a bit late last night and got up early.  The previous night I did not get much sleep looking around for a hotel.  I was very tired, and even stopped for a nap on the way to Canton!  It was too hot to stop for long.  It was also interesting to try to get there on back roads!


I finally got to my old house and got to see my Mom!  s I stated prior, it was hot, so I had my Mom stay at the hotel so she could take advantage of the air conditioning!  It was good to be here and see her!

Entering Ohio, my eighth state!

The home in Canton Ohio where I was raised.

The building with the aqua roof is where I worked for ten years.
