Some Gold Also


Today was an interesting travel day. As I mentioned in earlier journals, we were actually staying in Georgia while visiting Chattanooga, Tennessee. Well, the twisting turning interstate took us from Georgia, heading north to Tennessee, and then a slight wiggle back to Georgia, and then north again to Tennessee. We crossed Tennessee from the south to the north in one day--something that is unheard of if you try it in Texas in any direction! The trip was actually very nice until we got within 25 miles of Nashville. In Nashville, about 5 or 6 Interstate highways converge. Our GPS guided us through the maze of highway intersections but the 4 lanes of truck and car traffic around noon made it very interesting. We drove straight through the middle of Nashville and escaped to Kentucky. Kentucky is looking very nice--Mammoth Cave tours, watching football on Saturday,--early next week-- tour Churchill Downs and tour the Bourbon Trail. Susan will get to drive--I plan on a few tastings. It will keep us moving along--even if the distance traveled will the easier.

We drove into Mammoth Cave National Park to get our tour tickets and see a few sights. The trees and wild turkeys in the Park were really neat to see. It was a busy day-grilled chicken for dinner and then watch football on Saturday and wash the RV and truck--lots of dirt since the last wash job in St. Martins, New Brunswick.
