Day 21: FROM DAYTON, OH TO PERRYSBURG, MI

For our Twenty-first day of travel, we started off in Dayton, OH. White-Allen Volkswagen in Dayton would be our first stop. We would like to thank them for charging the I.D. 4 over the weekend. We appreciate that they came out so early for us as well. We continued on the highway and behind us we spotted a neat motorcycle with a sidecar. The duo waved to us as we drove past. The following day, we entered Springfield, OH. We stopped by the Clark County Courthouse built in 1918. The building had some nice details engraved on the architecture. As we went further into town, we came across the Springfield water tower. We found more mariachi statues. These fellows greeted us with their instruments and golden accented color palette. A 1950’s style burger joint had a cool sculpture of a big boy carrying a huge burger in the typical vintage burger joint uniform. We arrived in Columbus, OH. We then visited Germain VW where we met a couple of nice guys who happened to be fraternal twins. Our next stop would be at Byer Volkswagen. We appreciate them for helping us service the I.D. 4 very quickly. At a rest stop, near Belleville, there was a life-size tee-pee and Native American statue. The Native was riding horseback. These statues were not only cool to see, but represent Ohio’s history of Native tribes. Nearby, we stopped by Der Dutchman, an Amish kitchen that started in 1969 that is shaped around the traditions of Amish and Mennonite heritage. We were big fans of Der Dutchman’s food. We learned that Ohio is one of the select states where they have drive-thru convenience stores. It was interesting to see and drive through one of these. Akron VW helped us with some filming in the city of Akron. Thanks for the help. We got some cool shots using the drone on the Amish country double-lane road. We then saw a horse and buggy in our rear view as we drove through the countryside. He was quite fast. To our astonishment, he even crossed a four lane highway!
