The time difference helped, I was wide awake at 4:30am. So I turned on "Hit the road, Jack" and pushed the pedal to the metal (respecting the speed limits). The car is great fun to drive, compared to our German family wagon it much more behaves like a truck and I love it. I headed North to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in the light rain. Despire the rain it was awesome to see the water, driving on a long bridge then ducking steeply below the surface into the tunnel. Afterwards I stopped for a break at Ocean City and stared into the Atlantic Ocean. Miss my family, they are somewhere there in the far far distance. We actually talked online so I showed them the beach and the car.


Then it was time to reach Milford where the trailer was waiting. It was great to see it and they walked me through all the accessories. Loads of information, some things work similarly to European campers, still many things were new to me. Probably remember 60% what was said but we will figure it out on the go.


Towing the first miles was quite an experience. I like towing but this thing is huge. After the long handover I got quite hungry so pulled over at a good old McDonald's. Ups, it won't fit into McDrive. Quick steering to the right and parked on two adjacent parking slots. After filling up my tank and lots of coffee my final leg of today's drive was completed. I found a nice little campground next to a pond and took one of the last spots for the night. Most campgrounds I contacted are fully booked, especially on weekends. So I was glad I found this place and went for a run to close the evening. Another great day on the road.
