Today was the start of our trek north and it was a long day, 670 km (416 miles). We are now at Texas T Campground, Cornersville TN.

The drive was good except around Cullman, AL where we did 3 miles in an hour, when we finally got going we saw no evidence to tell us what the hold up was, but we presume there had been an accident. We considered getting off the interstate but decided all the other roads would be congested with cars getting off so just stayed where we were and figure that had been the right move as after about 5 minutes in a rest area north of the stop up two motor cycles came in who we had seen getting off on one of the exits to avoid sitting!

Today was very hot, the high in the truck was 90F (30C) – thank goodness for a/c!!

We're In Tennessee

Tomorrow we will have to do some rerouting off I-65 between Elizabethtown and St. Louis as we hear the interstate is a nightmare from ice damage in the winter, just hope we pick a route that wasn’t damaged!!

As always, today was another great gift of a day in the sunny south and we look forward to another good day tomorrow.
