made it to melanie’s house around 7:20pm tonight, cst. took about 5 hours from asheville, and i crossed a time zone, which was kind of weird to do in a car. total miles traveled today: in the neighborhood of 560. miles to go: a little over 3000. i’m 15% of the way there!
met their puppy gus who is a master fetcher, then did a quick driving tour through downtown clarksville. said hi to pj who was out playing softball. came back to partake of some lovely bbq left over from a recent party. played more fetch with gus.
at which point we all admitted we were completely exhausted. but before hitting the sack, here’s my rough itinerary for the rest of the trip.
clarksville to memphis – lunch at rendezvous, the civil rights museum, and graceland… (257mi)
then through little rock and onto oklahoma city – any recommendations? (465mi)
oklahoma city to amarillo for lunch (258mi)
amarillo to santa fe – georgia o’keefe museum (278mi)
santa fe to albequerque to flagstaff to the grand canyon (470mi)
grand canyon to zion national park (247mi)
zion national park to salt lake city (307mi)
salt lake city to reno (517mi)
reno to santa rosa (234mi)
next leg: clarksville to memphis
