We traveled the Natchez Trace for the first 250 miles of our drive to Ohio. We’d done the Trace back in 2005, stopping at most every historic spot along the way. We did some camping, some traipsing about with just the truck, and lots of exploring all the nooks and crannies of this beautiful drive. This time, however, it was just the shortest distance between point A (Kosciusko) and point B (Nashville). Now, I’m not saying it’s the quickest route, but my oh my, it did my blood pressure good! Two lanes, minimal shoulders (so Gary took his half out of middle when he could), 50-55 mph speed limit, no stop signs, traffic lights, or merge lanes, no commercial trucks and hardly any car traffic at all.
See what I mean? Ahhhh…..
All good things must come to an end, though, from Nashville to just outside of Columbus, it was Interstate all the way.
Oh and rain.
(That’s Cincinnati hiding in the mist.)
[Coming soon – a recap of our fun visit with the kiddos in Columbus]
All too soon (like this morning) we were headed for our summer destination, Montrose Bible Conference.
But as sometimes happens when your house has an engine, something just didn’t sound right, so we are currently snugged in at a transmission repair spot near Akron, OH, where they have given us an appointment for tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.
We are very thankful that we’re self-contained, our waste tanks are empty, our fresh water and propane tanks are adequately full, and the generator is humming away. Flexibility is the name of the game. We’re safe, have food in the fridge (and a truck to go get more if we need it), and are praying for a quick (and economical) resolution tomorrow.
Meanwhile – here are some links to our travels down the beautiful Natchez Trace in October, 2005.
