What I did
The tail end of 100,000 trucks
It also has a great place to eat: The Sagebrush Steak House, where our last meal before the inevitable diet, was a great one. MJ had a quesadilla that was four times as thick as anything she’d ever had. My ribeye was done to perfection. This is the south, of course, and the beer ranged from lite to lighter, but they did serve Pennsylvania’s famous and growing by leaps and bounds, Yuengling, the oldest continuously operating brewery in the Americas.
We left Nowhere early this morning, 0730 (shiver), so that we could arrive Somewhere before dark, which despite the froggy weather and flaming truck drivers, we did with light to spare
Gas in Tennessee often falls below the three-dollar mark--cheaper than water!
We’ve found that traffic on the nation’s highways has not diminished with the imminence of winter. The lower price of gas surely spurs the high levels of vehicle movement we’ve witnessed this time. Good or bad?
The California Feros arrived safely in SoCal and Michael has been busy with damage control caused by the death of his distributor in Tucson, Lew Bush, by heart attack, the 7th San Diego Super Bowl team member to die young. He had sent the apparatus necessary for an operation on Thursday, but had to visit the grieving family in San Diego today and thoughtfully retrieve the material and take it to Tucson. Haven’t heard a status other than Michael is there with the wife and four kids.
Tomorrow, we make the last leg of the trip. The weather is supposed to be good. We beat the odds this time.
