VROC Reunion Rally 2015: Returning Home – Dayton, OH to Mount Vernon, OH

[Please note that this blog post is backdated to September 22; the post was published on October 29.]

Today is Day 12 of our 13-day vacation. We are traveling home from the VROC Reunion Rally, which was held in Eureka Springs, AR.

 

We departed the National Museum of the US Air Force in Dayton, OH at 2:00 pm, en route home.

I took only one photograph along the way.

We made it as far as Mount Vernon, OH. My knee hurt from walking on the concrete floors of the Air Force Museum for 3+ hours. I might have been able to drive farther, if it wasn’t my right knee being in pain. My right leg is used to press on the gas and brake pedals. Bob really wishes we had made it home tonight. He said “everyone else has made it home from Eureka Springs, even Shannon and Ryan and they live in Hawaii!”

We checked into Comfort Inn in Mount Vernon at 4:30 pm.   We were familiar with this hotel, as we stayed here in June 2009 on our way home from Richmond, KY where we had attended a VROC motorcycle rally.

We drove 132 miles today, counting the mileage from our hotel in South Dayton to the museum and from the museum to Mount Vernon, OH.  Here is the route we took from the museum to Mount Vernon.

After resting for about 1 ½ hours, we walked to WineStein, located next door to the hotel.

We ate dinner at WineStein. Bob ordered a gourmet cheeseburger with a side salad. I ordered a grilled chicken breast with peanut sauce, southwestern au gratin potatoes and green beans. The atmosphere was relaxing; service was good; and dinner was delicious. After dinner, we walked a short distance to Whit’s for dessert. We had custard ice cream, which was not soft serve as we have been accustomed to. Whit’s custard ice cream is served as a scoop.

 On our way back to the hotel from Whit’s,
I had to stop and take a picture of this bridge and moon reflecting in the water.

We spent rest of the evening in our hotel room. There were two room amenities that I particularly liked in this hotel.

The bedside lamps included reading lights.

The refrigerator was larger than those found in most hotel rooms.

    Hope your knee is feeling better Linda. I hope it isn’t gout. I’ve had that in both of my knees (separate times)in the last couple years and it’s no fun at all. It really made me wonder when you mentioned how hard it was to press on the gas and brake as that happened to me too and I just couldn’t drive.

      I have arthritis in my right knee. I am looking at knee replacement sometime in the future….hopefully much farther in the future!
