Life is unpredictable.
Mother nature seems to be very confused.
New environments can present challenges.
but the best option is to hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
Sidetrips may challenge you by presenting new challenges,
And getting through them is simply awesome!
On the first leg of my trip I stopped in Mattoon, IL. Never again anytime soon. The McDonald’s I found for dinner was hilarious, the floor was dirty and sticky. The cashier must have thought I was some dumb idiot. The shower was different at the hotel and no one bothered to tell that to me at checkout.
But then I met a friend for coffee and that was awesome!
At the hotel in Crossville TN, the shower worked but the floor sloped a little bit outwards. So the floor was like a puddle when I got out, boy I didn’t slip!
Oak Ridge TN here I come soon!
Are you hoping for the best but preparing for the worst?
