yesterday we drove from tuscaloosa to Knoxville, tn. it was only about 5 hours but Rhett wasn't in the mood for driving so- we made some stops along the way. we stayed in a best western on the edge of town so we wouldn't hit any morning traffic on the way out. we've got about 4 hours left to get to lynchburg, va it looks like. graduation festivities begin at 6 tonight for us with john john. we're 3 hours ahead of California time now. so I don't know what day it is OR what time it ...

Warm bed, burgers, and great company tonight.....a good way to recover ...
http://trekpouch.com I met with the owner last night, and will be doing gear testing for the Trek Pouch. We installed the Trek Pouch on both my poles this morning (about a 2 minute process!), I am looking forward to having these on my journey. Such a simple, yet useful idea!
