Good for you, Gypsy! You are on your way to your own great adventures! One night down, a lifetime to go.
When you plan to stop for the night early, say around 4:00 p.m. local time, you have the option of moving on if your first choice doesn't work (like the Flying J plan - but then you can take up more than one space, you know, or go off to a corner in the back). Glad you found a better spot.
Life is a journey, enjoy the ride.
