Thanksgiving 2016 Road Trip: Day 8

closeHey, just so you know ... this post is now about 3 years and 6 months old. Please keep that in mind as it very well may contain broken links and/or outdated information.

Today was the long haul …

We were on the road at 9:00am, continuing our drive south on I-75 through Kentucky. Around noon we crossed in Tennessee and finally saw the sun again (after three cloudy, gray days in Ohio). About an hour later in Knoxville we started encountering heavy traffic. According to Waze there was a bad accident on the interstate so we took some back roads to route around it. This allowed us to stop at a Whole Foods and pick up a healthy lunch to each in the car.

At 5:00pm we were driving through Atlanta and we stopped for dinner in Tifton at 7:30pm. Our original plans had called for us to stop in Valdosta again, but we decided to push a little further and get as far as Lake City. We checked in by 10:00pm and were done for the night.

Tomorrow, we finally get back home.

Driving stats: 11 1/2 hours; 736 mi
