The New Adventure Begins

🎶🎶 We're driving in the rain...🎶🎶

The Gerbers and the Roobs started out at 6:00 am and drove to pick up the Linn's. We finished the final packing and were on the road at 6:30 with coffee in hand. Greg started the 800+ mile drive and drove through the traffic in Columbus and Cincy and Louisville. The rain was steady but didn't seem to slow the drive down too much. Dan took over the wheel and managed the slow and speed up traffic in and around Nashville and Memphis. Wynn took over the last leg of the journey in the dark and got us safely to Canton, MS ( just outside of Jackson. ) Thanks to our great drivers, the ride is past us and we only have a couple of hours to Natchez. We picked up a coupon book at the roadside rest inside of Mississippi and secured our three rooms for 49.99 each +tax. We are staying at the Super 8 Motel in Canton, 885 miles from home. Lunch was at Subway and Supper was at Sonic so we could have an evening shake. My apple brownies hit the spot for dessert. Tomorrow morning we will get breakfast at the motel and then try to get on the road around 8 am so we can be in Natchez between 10-10:30. Touring and getting our bearings for the beginning ride on Sunday are the plans for tomorrow. I am also looking forward to meeting up with a childhood friend who lives in LA. Supper at Roux 61 is on the schedule.
The ponies traveled well in the back of the van and I think overall we were comfortable. ?
Skies are suppose to be blue tomorrow...

Brenda got your e-mail thanks. Hope the weather is better there than what we have here. All day long gray skies and rain on and off. Have fun and stay safe. You should be a writer Brenda. Always very interesting and good pics.
