We would like to wish our beautiful and delightful granddaughter a very Happy 14th Birthday!!
We left Russellville driving on I40 across Arkansas. Soon into today's trip orange barrels herded us into one lane and then all of a sudden we notice a barrel right in the middle of our lane, BAMM, it flew up in the air and away from the RV. When we stopped at the next rest stop we found a very small scratch on the right front corner of the rig. It will need to be buffed out and a bit of touch up paint to cover it, but no dent. It could have been much worse if David wasn't so steady at the wheel. We continued on, crossed a small corner of Tennessee passed Memphis and crossed the Mississippi River. This took us southeast through Mississippi along US78/I22. We passed Tupelo, Mississippi. A few years ago we stopped in Tupelo which was a nice little town. It's not only Elvis Presley's birth place but the location of the most comprehensive automobile museum we have ever visited. It shows the evolution of the automobile from the very first to the most current. Tupelo is also a spot which crosses Natchez Trace, a 400 mile scenic drive we drove a few years ago and would like to explore again some day. I22 then took us into Alabama, through Birmingham, and into Georgia. We stayed outside of Atlanta at a Cracker Barrel for the night. Tomorrow we will be at Lazy Days in Seffner, Florida with electricity, WiFi and shower rooms. I'll be able to add photos from the last few days. Our dreams will be filled with taking a long hot shower. Oh what a delight this reality will be.
