Road Tripping - Day 2

The 2nd day of our road trip seemed much longer than the 1st. Driving across Missouri and Kansas seemed to go on forever!! The massive areas of farmland, while pretty for a while, tend to become monotonous.

I have to say that the girls and I were quite happy when we finally made it to the apartment we were renting for the trip.

We then went over to the track to get some racewalking in so the girls could stretch their legs after having been in the car for 2 days.

Road Tripping - Day 1

I'm on my way to Kansas with Little Red and Sassy so that they can compete in the USATF National Jr. Olympic Track & Field Championships. We decided that driving there would be cheaper than flying so I'm doing a road trip farther than I have ever driven before. (I've road tripped before, just never as the driver.)

So far today, I've learned a lot.
1) Music is key! Good music that I can sing and dance to while I drive made it much easier to stay awake and alert for the whole 8 1/2 hours today.

2) I need to go back to the mountains in the fall. Driving through NC and TN mountains today, my first thought was "This is pretty, but I can't imagine how gorgeous it is when the leaves are changing colors."

3) There are a lot of drivers in Tennessee who can NOT drive. Please don't be offended if you're from Tennessee; not all of them were bad, but there were a lot who were.

We stopped in Clarksville, TN for the night, and we'll finish the trip to the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas tomorrow.
