Ruthie On The Road, Update II

The officers got me into an old motel at about 4 a.m.

After I put the ancient key into the lock, opened the door and turned on the light...the current tenants scattered.

Yes, Campers, I'm talking about !!ROACHES!!

They scampered across the bed, they raced across the floor and one really big, brown one took a swan dive from the ceiling.

"Holy shit!" I thought and almost backed right out into the parking lot.

But I decided that I was too tired. So I walked in, set my pack down on a rickety table, laid down on the bed and pulled the spread up to my nose.

My last thought before I fell asleep was: "As long as I don't have to eat these critters, I'll be alright."
