    I'd suggest checking if there's something big going on in the general area such as a rally and if not wing it on the lodging. That would leave the roads in any direction open.

      That's Steve's MO also. I'll trust you on this, Ray. If I get stuck sleeping on a picnic table at a rest stop, you're in trouble. ;-)
