Last night we stayed at the Comfort Inn and Conference Center in Pittsburgh, PA. The bed was so comfy and the thick towels so luxurious. And the in house restaurant had great food.
On our way to the free breakfast, we met Kim at the desk when I asked if I could take the above picture. She is so nice. She asked if we were sure we wouldn’t miss the snow in New Hampshire. We assured her we would be fine in the warm weather of Las Vegas.
After eating some scrambled eggs and sausage, I wanted just a little something. That is when I met Judy Gelormini. She suggested a Belgian waffle, one of my favorite foods. Not only did she suggest it, she made it for me. We talked and she wished us well.
Crossing the border into West Virginia, I was excited. We were going to Wheeling, West Virginia. Doesn’t the name just excite you? We stopped at a State rest stop where we met Travis Pollock. He is a great man with a wealth of information. He does his state proud not only for the wealth of knowledge he has, but for the fine way he shares.
He told us about Wheeling, and pointed out the high points of the town and what we may find interesting. He gave us accompanying brochures. Travis Pollock is a great ambassador for West Virginia.
Traveling is fun and educational, but keeping to a schedule is a bit difficult, especially on the body. It was afternoon and we were sort of hungry, but didn’t really know what we wanted to eat. We stopped at Travel Center of America in Eaton, Ohio. There we met Jackie Miller.
I think Jackie Miller could do anything. She works at the Country Pride Restaurant at the TA Center. When I asked if they had fruit salad, she said no, but I could get one next door at the store. Steve got the soup and salad bar. When I asked for cheese cake, they didn’t have any, but she got me a piece next door. Jackie is friendly, kind and helpful. As a matter of fact, all of the folks at the Travel Center of America are nice. Maybe it is a condition of employment.
The best part of this trip is meeting so many nice people. What is your experience?
