Air Guitar at the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame
After a 6 hour drive to Cleveland, Ohio and a 2-hour tour of the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, it's time for FOOD!
You know what they say, "When in Rome...." So, we head over to the Hard Rock Cafe for legendary burgers, rock and roll memorabilia and great tunes to accompany our meal.
Rae: "Dinner was great! I'm exhausted... let's head to the Inn and relax for the night."
Stella: "Do you want me to drive since you've only had a cat nap in the past 2 days?"
Rae: "No, I'll drive... what's another hour and a half, sleep is over rated anyway."
We head out, hitting I-90 west, less than 2 miles from the restaurant. It's pitch black and we're in unknown territory...
Rae: "Didn't we get gas an hour before we hit Cleveland?"
Stella: "Yes Rae, we filled the tank, just as we do every 2 hours while on a road trip... not that you obsess about it or anything."
Rae: "We need a gas station... like, NOW. We're on empty!"
Stella: "Rae!! we just stopped, what do you mean? We are in the middle of NO WHERE!"
Rae: "Maybe there's a hole in the tank, or there was a hose in the tank..."
Moral of the story: Maybe it was the out-of-state license plate that makes us an easy target? Maybe we just 'look' like visitors so that makes us an easy target? No matter the reason, when traveling, you are always a target for scammers and thieves. There's no way to know for certain, but we can take a good guess that our gas was siphoned.
Common sense safety tip: Remember what you were taught in Drivers Ed class in high school? Check your gas guage before driving away.
Sometimes, a simple road trip can turn into a crazy adventure!
