The first day is the longest! When I am driving from point A to point B, my only focus is just to get there. I drove 12 hours through five major cities and logged just under 700 miles. Ugh! I entertained myself with satellite radio and sending silly text messages to my cousin, Rita! It is a game, but it also lets Rita track my whereabouts should the unthinkable happen.
"Closing in on Cleveland,"
"Just had a nice breakfast here at the hotel, it's still dark, time for another cup of coffee before I start out,"
"the little old lady from Rochester is in Tennessee!"
"zipping right along, closing in on BAMA!"
"less than 125 miles to go!"
The following pictures show what my day was all about! Wish I could say the traffic was always this light, but then when I was in heavy, slow moving traffic, I wouldn't be holding a camera in front of me!!!
