Day Two
“Leave only footprints, take only memories” (...and maybe some pictures)
June 6, 2014
5:00 am Alarm went off and we started our day.  Showered and dressed.  Ate breakfast in the hotel since it was included in the price.  Decent food.  Eggs, sausage, waffles (our favorite), etc. 7:35 am We are in the truck and ready to go.  We are going to McDs for our travel coffee and a gas station to start the day with a full tank.  Then… head on down the road. 1:15 pm On the road in Virginia.  We just filled up with gas and finished our lunch.  We decided to change things up and instead of our standard McD for food we hit a KFC.  We did find out that 12 chicken tenders is too many for us for a meal.  We couldn’t eat them all.  About 160 miles from Tennessee. 7:07 pm (Central Time) Stopped for the night in a Clarion Inn in Cookeville Tennessee.  Lost an hour because we didn’t know that our Garmin was adjusting for the time change.  We expected a time shift when we passed into Central Time… but nothing. 8:50 pm Ate dinner at a Shoney’s mainly due to it being close to our motel and we could walk.  Food was good. While walking to the restaurant Barbara noticed a bird we couldn’t ID.  It was obviously hunting insects, swooping and diving over the lights around the motel.  It had a short ‘peent…. peent’ call while hunting.  (After the fact we determined it to be a Nighthawk.)  We are in for the night and will be asleep soon.
