Got out, got my giant suitcase, cane, totebag and myself down my front steps and to the parking garage. I handed the guy the ticket/receipt and he said "47." I said, "What?" and he said, "47" again -- I thought he was telling me what space my car was in or something... so he said "47" again and I said, "47 what?" and he said, "dollars."
Oh man! Forty-seven dollars to park a car from about 2:30 pm until 10 am. Plus tip. Oh well. I won't be doing that again any time soon -- but it was still a good system and worked well.
Uneventful trip, beautiful day, my car turned out to have satellite radio so I hope that lasts for the whole trip.
I am in a Super 8 which is the exception to the rule. I am only paying $60 (had read loads of customer reviews.) This place is clean, smells clean, feels clean, smells new -- new bedding, big screen tv, microwave and fridge, desk, coffee, everything... even nice little bathroom amenities. The woman at the front desk couldn't have been nicer.
So on with the photos:

|OK, for sixty bucks, I can't expect much of a view out my window!|
