Just stopping by to say a quick hello...I went on a spur of the moment road trip to Nashville, TN to meet my cousin, who was also driving down from Massachusetts. It was a VERY long drive-according to mapquest it was only supposed to be about 10 hours, it took more than 12. For her it was about 15 hours.
It is a GORGEOUS place-lots of scenery. I drove through near Chatanooga and from what I could see (it was getting dark) it was just so pretty! Nashville is very nice...I went down to the strip on 2nd avenue, where there are shops/bars/restaurants and walked around for a while. Most of the people here are very courteous and very friendly, unlike Tampa . Of course I turned the wrong corner here and there and came across some interesting people, to say the least, but you get those everywhere. I forgot my camera but my cousin took some pictures and I'll post those once she sends me them. I'll be home tomorrow.
BTW, neither of our parents know . My cousin was supposed to be in Connecticut for the weekend, and I was going on a "camping and fishing trip". Haha, I guess it's just one of those crazy things to mark down in the memory books.
Needless to say I think I'll fly next time, or make sure I can spend a week or two up here. I would LOVE to live here...it's really my dream state.
