First Day on the Trail

We’re safely in Nashville, TN.

We left home around 9 a.m., and didn’t arrive until nearly 9 p.m. local time. Hit road destruction even before we left the county, then in numerous locations along I-81 and I-40. To add to our delays, we ran into severe weather in Tennessee. However, I was expecting something like that; it always pours buckets when I drive through Tennessee.

nasty looking clouds

Yup, that storm would have stampeded the best-behaved of herds.

But overall it was a good trip. Plus, we made a new friend today, a fellow traveler along this trail westward. Howdy, Molly’s mom! 🙂

Did you know that a cattle drive averaged about 10-15 miles per day? I can’t imagine what they would think of our ability to drive 600 miles in a day. And as stiff and sore as I am, it had to be so much worse sitting on a leather and wood saddle or a hard wooden wagon seat for hours on end.

Well, it’s time to hit the sack. My little bunkie is already in bed and I should follow her example. It’s another early morning and long day on the trail .

See you all tomorrow!
