One of our rules was that we wouldn't drive after dark so we wouldn't miss anything. We drove just a few more miles to Pontiac where we found a Best Western motel and called it a night. Looking dated and a bit cheap, but the place was being renovated. The room we got smelled like it had been a smoking room previously, but the new paint & carpet made it not very bad. The A/C worked very nicely, getting the room down to the chilly I like. The shower was decent and the toilet paper, while cheap, was still a couple of levels above corn cob. It had been a long day of driving and it wasn't but a few minutes before we were both in dream land.
