Speaking of Charleston, WV, we met possibly the nicest hotel manager in America. A former rock star, John understood the travails of road life and greeted us with free food, drink, parking and a beautiful home for the night.
He couldn’t have been nicer, walking us the the hotel restaurant and instructing the staff to “bill the front desk” for any food or drink that we had.
We discussed making John’s hotel an official sponsor of the road trip for all their graciousness, but John would have none of it.
“We’re just thrilled to have two celebrities like you staying with us,” he said.
While discussing the hotel, we had fun visiting with the security guards on staff last night. I asked if they got into a lot of shootouts and the like, but they said they mostly just ask people to quiet down in their rooms.
The stories I bet they could tell.
