Column: On road trip, roadside motels beckon the budget traveler

I’m back from vacation, but writing about my vacation. Specifically, about the pleasures of a road trip and about the perfectly fine, and perfectly priced, roadside motel. That’s in Wednesday’s column. I plan to follow up Friday with some further notes on things I saw, did and ate. From there, we’ll be back to business as usual — whatever that is.

Happy Labor Day

I don’t know that I’ve wished you well on a holiday in a while, but if you have a three-day weekend, or at least today off, enjoy. I have three days, and it’s a welcome break from the grind. Monday I’m hoping to finally catch a matinee of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Surely I’ll have three hours to spare on my third day off in a row. Plus, I already expect that the air conditioning will be a bonus.

And thus I bring you: Wednesday’s column.
