Big Country Little Car Tour: Day 1
It's a big country. I have a little car. It's Big Country Little Car Tour 2010.
Why?Well, why not? I like to drive, I have a thing in Murfreesboro on Friday, I haven't seen AB Chao in ages…what the hell, right?
But it is a very very little car — too little, as it turns out, to fit cruise control into the works, so the sleety hills of I-76 is not the most fun I ever had in my life. Also, I packed in my usual stupid "what do you mean, 'they have stores in the Central time zone'? — that's crazy talk" fashion, so it's a tight fit in there. In my defense, I brought a third of the stuff as hostess gifts, but I won't have given any of the (bulky and breakable, obviously) gifts away by the time I have to pick my not-that-little dad up at the Nashville airport on Thursday. I just don't know where I'm going to put the man.
I didn't have any fun stops today, either, because I had to bite off a bunch of mileage today, so I blew right through Hershey without even slowing down. Keckler's going to fire me.
The day had a funeral theme. I stopped in to visit my grandparents' resting place and make sure everything is mown and in order. Later, I spent several miles on I-70 behind a casket truck with the legend, "Please Drive Safely, Heaven Can Wait." And the Best Western is across the street from an old graveyard.
Next stop: Louisville, KY.
