Got as cold as 46.
Waiting for the sun to finish coming out to warm this world up a bit.

Surprise!!!
I’m still going. Its alot slower now because I’m practically stopping at every waffle house to warm up.

The heat pads I bought at Target have a but given up the ghost and these batman underpants aren’t keeping me warm.

Right now I’m sitting on some cold metal Starbucks outside chairs. Starbucks is closed.

Not sure what the plan is. Whether to stay or go… guess you’ll found out at the next post.

Ok… I guess I skipped 600 officially which would have been the halfway more or less. So lets celebrate the halfway now.

Hurray!!

Damn it’s cold out here still.
When the heck does the warm south start?

Actually closer to 580 miles in.

After a brief stop for eggs n bacon at waffle house I picked up a nice jam car that I just didn’t want to leave behind. A jam car is nice because it lets you extend the range of your headlights increasing you vision. Helpful indeed.

I am now just south of Atlanta. In a target. Shopping.

Talk again soon.

That hundred was a little slower.

Crossed the Ohio river on a ferry.

So much for the early start. But no worries the clock starts when I roll which is now.

Phone GPS says 1175 miles.
My plan: drive straight thru. Put up a post every hundred miles.
So in 12 posts I’ll be home.

Cheer me on.
But no distractions.

Ready, Set, Go





Things continue to be difficult to explain

Passed this on I70.
Right near the first stretch of Federal Interstate to be opened by Ike. I wonder what the crazies of today would say about a spending spree like that now.

Not that I’m complaining about nice roads.

PS. I didn’t take that picture, but found it later on the internet as it’s hard to pull out your camera phone at 105.
