Day 27: Louisville, KY to Marietta, OH

Today was pretty much about moving East, which meant staying on the Interstate or other major roadways.

I started in Kentucky, through Illinois, into Indiana and then to Ohio, on I-71, I-275, U.S. 25, U.S. 52, U.S. 50, U.S. 62, OH Hwy 32, back onto U.S. 50 and finally on OH Hwy 7 – and I didn’t got lost once.

I left Louisville late - 10:30, and got into Marietta at 6:00.

Weather is much more cooperative today – low 80s and low humidity.

The miles started to catch up to me today. About half way to Marietta I pulled into a rest stop, found a shade tree, and took a half hour nap.

I’m staying at the Lafayette Hotel in Marietta, OH. It’s an old hotel on the Ohio River in the historic section of Marietta. I stayed here about a year ago and found a very good restaurant up the street, so that’s where I'm heading tonight.

There wasn’t much in the way of scenery on the way, but there is a nice view of the Ohio River and the bridge over to West Virginia.

Tomorrow is the last day of the journey and it’s a long one from Marietta to Phoenixville.
