We headed north on I-75 and encountered nasty traffic snarls miles before Atlanta, through Atlanta on the western bypass, back on I-75 north of Atlanta and most of the way to Chattanooga, Tennessee. A trip that should have really taken us a little over 4 hours actually took us closer to 7. Ugh. Rare are the days that I prepare lunch and eat while we're moving down the highway, but thats what we did today.
|others were jealous of our ability to eat lunch while stuck in traffic.......|
So....we're finally in and settled at a pleasant campground just south of Chattanooga. We have plenty of room to walk the dogs and we're happy to hear the sounds of singing birds and big block chevy engines. Dave says there is a drag strip somewhere near here and he's enjoying enormously, the sweet sounds of screaming burnouts and short, fast runs down the 1/8 mile.
We're too tired to unhook the jeep and go in search of the track so we'll just sit with Beluga's windows open and attend vicarioiusly. Different strokes for different folks.
Tomorrow we'll meet Cindy and Walter in Lexington, Kentucky.
