One hour to home…
Saw these signs all over Memphis and OMG I understand why! The most reckless, dangerous drivers I’ve ever seen. I usually complain about Dallas drivers but these take the cake. It was truly frightening last night! 🙂 Today I was reading comments about Memphis drivers and many people seem to agree. LOL
Overnighting in Memphis…
Yes, when you travel with a chef, he brings his own cutting board and knives.
Overnighting in Bristol TN. Did you know half of Bristol is in VA and half in TN? I had no idea!
One foot in each state! And we read about Pal’s Sudden Service so we had to check it out for dinner. Really good! It lived up to the hype!
My niece Abby and her boyfriend Kyle came by to visit. So nice to finally meet him and get to hang out with them a bit!
We went out to dinner with Mom and Aunt Jeannette on our last night and then hit the road the next morning. Another great visit comes to an end!
to the Jersey side! We are here! So good to see Mom after almost two years! And we had to have a hoagie for dinner, of course.
We mostly drove the highways because we were on a schedule, but the GPS took us onto some back roads to avoid traffic at one point. I must say I greatly prefer these views over the interstate!
Had a nice dinner at Graze on Main, inside the Bolling Wilson Hotel—no, we are not staying there. Edith Bolling Wilson, First Lady, was born in Wytheville. We wandered around downtown after dinner and saw the famous giant pencil so my life is complete. Then back to our hotel, Country Inn and Suites. Not as fancy as the Bolling Wilson, but hey, free breakfast.
When we’re overnighting somewhere, I always look up the town and see what points of interest there might be. I am sure Rich would prefer just to go to the hotel and relax but he humors me when I say there’s something fun to do, let’s go!! Jackson is known for its downtown murals as well as several music related museums but after a long day of driving and some delays along the way, we didn’t get to town till almost dark. Unfortunately I did not get to see any museums from the inside and we couldn’t find all the murals before we had no more daylight, but we did enjoy what we were able to see.
