We made the trip in TWO days. The Southern route "felt" quicker - maybe because it was new territory for most of us.
Here are a few photos....really not much to take photos of on this stretch of highway....I realized I could just post my FB snippets on travel days....so here goes....

No room at the Inn....but we searched high and low and found a stable near the river. AND I won $5 when a train went by my room.....I wonder if it's $5 per train?????
HOWEVER - we get a nice free breakfast here, a hot tub, a fitness center right in the building, free wifi, AND the cast of Sesame Street Live is sharing the hotel with us. I think it may beat the oil men that overtook Comfort Inn last time we stayed there. ::wink::
Living all of life before the face of God...
