    Original post:

    Howdy from the Holiday Inn at Bowling Green KY! As I sit here I am on day seven of my trip through Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia & Kentucy. Today is the first day that I have had internet access athough I am stopping in more major towns from here on in (Nashville, Chattanooga, Atlanta) so hopefully I'll be able to bring you up to date in the coming days.

    So far it's been a good trip, although it has made me realise I do prefer travelling alone. It's nice to have someone to share the trip with but it's painful waiting on the other person sometimes. It's now well past 9am and my travelling partner, Andy, is asleep. If it were up to me I'd have been in Nashville by now but, hey, we're all different and enjoy things at a different pace. That's not to say I have a problem with Andy, just that I'm too selfish and want to be able to do what I want, when I want! If that makes me a bad person then shoot me!

    Default Pyro Andy?

    Is this the same Andy that likes to set things on fire? Le Mans Campfire and Le Mans Chair.

    If so just put a lit match under his nose. He'd probably wake up then.

    He's awake now - when he's finally done in the bathroom we're heading off. So updates will have to wait until later. Have a good day!

    Had a good day, had a big argument and, finally, drank far too much... have a spinny head now! :)

    Default Uh on

    :( Not good on the argument or the spinny head. I've got one too, but I can't blame it on alcohol. Explain to me again why I live in Louisiana when I appear to be severely allergic to the entire state?!

    I agree on the traveling alone sometimes.

    Well, I've just got back from the baseball and have realised it's the last night of the trip and I've not had chance to write any updates :o Sorry folks... I'll try and post something up once I get home.

    I sure know what you're talking about here. My wife, the human trip delay. Really tough to get out on the road before the 11 AM checkout time when she's with me. However, she is an excellent navigator, so I guess you have to take the bad with the good. When she's not with me, I tend to get lost, especially when checking out NTN sites.

    Did you check out the Duncan Hines in Bowling Green?

    Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway.

    Default A problem

    I had been working on the daily reports whilst sat in the departure lounge last night and was looking forward to posting them on here. Unfortunately my laptop has decided to pick now to die a death so, currently, I no longer have the reports or any of the photos that I took on the trip :( I really hope that I can get them back!!
