First....Mocha and I made it to Tennessee in one piece. It was touch and go there for a while, but we braced up and made the 766 mile treck from Houston to Ashland City. No pictures yet, but I'm making it a priority tomorrow to get some on the site.
Day One: it took 13 hours to drive from Houston, TX to Little Rock, AK thanks to a flat tire, hitting a deer, stopping to repair the electrical system on the trailer and getting damn lost in Texarkana.
Day Two: Little Rock , AK to Ashland City, TN - only 7 hours - btw...Mocha slept the entire time, bless her heart.
Here are a few awards to bestow on unsuspecting people and places (no one knew this was a competition!)
Best Dairy Queen - Jefferson, TX for having an extra wide drive through that I could pull the trailer through
Best Town Name - Bucksnort, TN...(I am not kidding when I say I just about wet myself laughing so hard and yes, I snorted!)
Best Appearance by a Guardian Angel - Susan McAdams and her son Jeremy
Susan and Jeremy drove 45 miles to help when the back passenger tire exploded on 59 North outside of Carthage.
Best Question and Response -
Question: Roadside Assistance Operator, "Could you tell me the closest cross street to where you are?"
Response: Me, "Somewhere between the brown cows and the black cows."
