With the Legislative hissy fit behind us (for now anyway), I left home about 10 AM. It was a long day of driving the interstates. B-O-R-I-N-G. I realize, of course, that uneventful is good. And, after all, my objective is to get up to DC quickly with just a couple of National Park stops in Virginia.

I started this morning in the wrong direction (west) because I needed to get my broken exterior compartment lock fixed by the Roadtrek dealer near Birmingham. This took all of 20 minutes.
The best part about a visit to the dealer?
Sorry, I had to use a web photo. You know that delectable sauce that makes this the best burger on the planet?
I was covered in it and couldn’t get to my camera.
After leaving the dealer, I picked up I-20 and stopped for the night just short of Atlanta. It was about 5 PM, I was tired, and you can guess what the traffic was like. Over 250 miles covered today but I don’t feel that I’ve made any progress. Oh well. The weather was nice and, after all, I’m finally on the road.
All of tomorrow will be spent on I-85.
My big plan for the evening was to watch Game 1 of the World Series. However, my remote control isn’t working (the batteries corroded the contact points) and that’s the only way I can scan for local channels. That’s OK – I have papers to grade and at least I can keep up with the score.
Any suggestions about getting a replacement remote? My TV is a Vizio. Will a universal remote work?
