Rainy Drive

We had a really good time last night at our farewell get-together. So good, in fact, that we stayed longer than planned because we were just enjoying the fellowship of our best friends. We think that over 60 people came by to wish us well. Thanks all, we had a great time.

When we got back to Walter Reed we had to situate everything and we didn't get to bed until 4am. This morning we got up at 8:30, got ready and loaded the truck bed up. We really had to pack the bed well because we knew we were going to hit rain on the way and we wanted to protect the bags. We covered them with a tarp right behind the cab and then put two plastic bins at the end. We bought the bins, again, because we knew it would rain.

We checked out and got on our way stopping at a Cracker Barrel in Manassas to have breakfast with John and Tamra who wanted to meet us somewhere in the morning. We officially got underway around 1pm with full bellies.

After six hours we have covered about 430 miles and have 250 left to Nashville. With the time change we should arrive at our friend Kyla's home around 9:45pm. We're currently driving in rain and have been for about an hour now. I drove first for almost 300 miles and four hours and hit rain for maybe half an hour. Holly's at the helm now and she's doing great in the rain. We have both had a chance to get a little rest.

I'll post again when we get to Nashville.
