A night of luxury.

Arnold reads the sign, which says Bates Motel, Under New Management

Arnold has mostly been camping on his trip, but as it started to get dark he decided he’d treat himself to a night in a motel. This looks good. Under New Management, eh?

He went to reception and the chap said there was a double room available, so Arnold booked in and went up. Looks very comfortable – more so than a bivvy bag on the ground, anyway. Although there’s an odd noise, like someone playing strident chords on a violin.

After a long hot day in the saddle, Arnold decided to have a nice relaxing shower.

Um, what’s the shape on the other side of the curtain?

Arnold can see a shadow of a vaark figure on the other side of the curtain and his ears fly up.

Oh! It’s just the reception chap, asking if Arnold needs more towels…

So, all refreshed, Arnold treated himself to dinner on room service. Super! But he had to ask, what that funny noise was? The chap said there was a musician in the next room. And he only seems to know the one chord.

He reckons it’s a good thing he packed his ear defenders!

There now, with his ears covered, and tucked up in the quilt, he’s quite comfortable, and settled for a good night’s sleep. Night night Arnold!
