We are in the low slung brick Circle Motor Lodge in South Amboy NJ our starting point, for our journey tommorw.
The Circle Motor Lodge was built around the time Eisenhower was in office, and it has stood welcoming travelers right next to the on ramp to State Highway 9 thru the past 11 presidents. It should probably not be said but I will anyways “it has seen better days.” Ken keeps giving me these looks of disbelief and suspicion as I keep saying “I have stayed in worse places”.
But the price was right and it was in almost right on the coast where we decided to start our journey, so we shall stay.
So at 5:26 am, local time, we shall point the car west, leave behind the cigarette burned bedspreads and drive till sundown.
