#OTR50 Day 173: Road Trip Home

Yesterday I drove the almost 8 hours home from Vermont with only a few short stops. We had planned a break for lunch about half way through. Our initial goal was either Popolo or Flatbread Pizza Company for lunch. I thought I’d be exhausted and need to stop for a long break. However, a few […]
