On the Road: Cross-Country Day 2

On the Road: Cross-Country Day 2

guitar, tennessee, travelTravel 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.
