After arriving in Maryland we got a hotel room in Aberdeen. At about three in the morning Kristin saw a mouse run underneath the bed. I followed wall where she saw him, and sure enough we saw this mouse hole. We had to argue with the hotel owner to get our money back even though he knew there were mice, he just kept saying there was nothing he could do about them. After getting our money back we went straight to city hall and filed a complaint. We heard from the inspector a few days later that the place was about to be shut down.

Thanksgiving dinner on the road. We made a detour found a nice hotel in York, Pennsylvania they didn't even charge us a holiday rate. We couldn't find anything open so we had turkey tv dinners, but who cares when your living your dreams.
