Evan weighed in at 159lbs, a DECREASE of 1.5 lbs.
I (Joel) weighed in at 183lbs, a DECREASE of 2 lbs.
So, go figure....who knows why we are losing weight, I mean we are doing a lot of walking and sweating in 95 degree heat...but you have all seen what we put our stomachs through. Either way, so far Evan is in the lead with a gain of -1.5 lbs. Less walking, more eating.....
Our first destination was the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg Tennessee (only 50 miles), but before we arrived, we stopped at Whitt's roadside BBQ stand for lunch
Only 15 miles to Jack Daniel's country. I felt the warmth in my cockles as we drew close. It is the oldest registered distillery in the United State, established in 1866 by a then 13-year-old Jack. To this day, the distillery produces the entire world supply of Old # 7 Whiskey
After our liquor wonderland adventure we drove 60 miles north to Nashville, home to the country music hall of fame, grand ole opry, the Predators (NHL) and the Titans (NFL). About 30 miles into this leg Evan wouldn't shut up about the fact that we were losing weight, and was completely convinced that adding periodic milkshakes stops would help our cause. So, we veered off the highway and pulled into Steak'n'Shake (Southern Fast Food - but with a kitchen). We order a milkshake each
We hit another milestone during the last leg of today's trip, you can watch it on the video, but be warned, Evan was not prepared.
