Thursday from Cleveland, Tennessee not Ohio

The first leg of our trip is over and it only took 12 hours.  The actual time it should have taken us was 10 hours but my bladder is the size of a pin head so there’s that.

Anywho, today is the second leg and we will end up in Columbus sometime late in the afternoon.  Right now we are at my Mother’s house in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Here are a few pictures from the first leg of the tour and some lessons I learned.


The rest areas in Florida are hella scary!


If you drive a moving truck along the interstate you must stop at every damn weigh station along the way.

On a side note, if you look incredibly innocent, you will be searched.


Atlanta does have a hell of a skyline.  I’d love to see it by foot because I have come to realize that I prefer my legs as a mode of transportation above all else.  Period.


No matter what time or how tired you are, you always perk up when you roll through your home state.

And when you’re exhausted an worried about your kid and questioning life in general, things like this appear out of nowhere and you realize you always have a friend.


And the most important thing I learned during this trip is that if you plan on listening to music and you don’t entirely love the Lumineers with all your heart, then maybe you might want to listen to a podcast instead.


Because ear worms happen.

O OH Phelia, you’ve been on  my mind girl since the flood….

Make it stop.

It’s 6AM and time to hit the road.

When is the last time you took a road trip and where did you go?

  1. I can relate to having a small bladder. We stop every 90 minutes MAX. The nicest rest stops I have experienced so far (we don’t road trip a lot; I would rather fly) is in Nebraska! Wow, they have some seriously nice and clean stops and you don’t feel like you gotta buy something like when you stop into a gas station!
