4R's Family Vacation, Day 1

 We rented a full sized car to travel in thinking M would be joining us in Denver, but due to unforeseen circumstances he had to back out.  Looking at the state of the car so far, it may have been a good thing. I'm not sure where we would have put him or his stuff.
Stopped at Wendy's for lunch and Cracker Barrel for dinner and made it 650 miles to St. Louis.  Our Chevy Captiva drives very smooth.  No one has gotten sore or stiff yet.
We unloaded and checked into a hotel that we booked on the road using V's phone.  It sounded and looked good on the little screen but the room they gave us was totally unacceptable.  It had a sleep sofa that was stained and broken to the point you would roll out on the floor.  When I complained they moved us to a double room that had already undergone some remodeling.  I wondered if they had a nice room why on earth would they try to make someone stay in the horrible one.  Hope to see the Arch tomorrow.

Safe travels on your vacation! Those hotel people always try to rip you off! We always try to upgrade.
