When we first got to Kitty Hawk we typed in the address to one of the "museums"...it really didn't get us too far until we noticed we were following a beat up car with a license plate that read TRUMPETS. Of course we just had had to get a picture of TRUMPETS because honestly who has a license plate that reads that? Cait was swiftly riding the other cars bumper in hope to get the perfect picture to show all of you, I (Jen) was on camera duty and the pictues wern't coming out right. I would take one, blury...I would take another, blury....this scenario went on for about 15 minutes while we manuvered down a sketchy windy road, until appearantly TRUMPETS got scared and pulled off, we're guessing due to the flash of lights that were frequently coming from the bellows of our car in hope to get the picture. Anyways this put us far off track so we decided to turn around and retrace our mess up. It wasn't very hard to get back to point A and we made finally made it back to the 7/11 we had started from. We decided to splurge and go get coffee and change up drivers for the next few hours...
The drive down to Greenville wasn't that bad after our incident, it went quite smoothly actually...until we hit Greenville and couldn't find the Days Inn, but a little friend I like to call McDonalds helped us out in that department and sent us a block down the road to our final destination. When and doubt, fast food it out. Checking in was breeze...we got a room with a king size bed which all three of us crashed in...not too shabby for $40 a night. We crept into bed and put on the new season of Lost and fell right to sleep, well most of us. In the morning there was continental breakfast, which made our day and of course like any poor, starving travelers would do, we took some extras with us....we stole some oatmeal packets, some doughnuts, and a little Sunny D...not anything the hotel would really miss I'm sure.Then we were off ,making check out time with seconds to spare....
