On the Road: Cross-Country Day 2
Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world. –Gustav Flaubert
Today wasn’t the most exciting day on the road, there was again, a lot of traffic.
I started the morning in Virginia in spring like 50 degree weather that would then go to 70 degree spring weather and then 80 degrees with humidity, just Tennessee reminding me of what it was like to live here. Also caught the bottom of the cyclone bomb storm heading east, a little rain and a lot of really gusty wind, got blown out of my lane a couple of times.
Always shocked when I see someone in a little electric wheel chair cart on the side of a major highway. This dude looked awesome though, big white-blonde beard, huge flag, lots of mardi gras beads.
First big goal today make Nashville, TN by 1:30 to meet my friend Flip from the Appalachian Trail for Indian Food. It was great to see him, he’s a great guy and a total badass hiker and chef. Our little hikertrash reunion was great.
After lunch I was pushing on for Jackson, MS. Happily traffic lightened up a bit while heading west and another early day tomorrow heading for Dallas. The highlight of the day was a phone call this afternoon inviting me for a job interview in a couple of weeks, so it begins. Have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
