2018 Harvest Road Trip – Day 1

Thursday, September 27

Since our long road trip was in August, we didn’t see any harvesting. So we thought what the heck, we’ll hit the road again.

We left home at 5:45 AM–it was 71 degrees. We had already made reservations at the Drury Inn in St. Joe so I knew it would be a long, boring drive on our first day out. We stopped, as usual, at the McDonald’s in Cartersville at I75.

According to the radar, we would be going through rain. And we did.

Traffic was heavy in Chattanooga and it took us an hour to get through Nashville.

The rain continued on as we got to Illinois. We stopped at the first rest area and ate lunch. No sitting outside for a picnic though.

The bridge across the Ohio River from Kentucky into Illinois.

We got to the Drury Inn at 7:20 PM. Dinner was from Bandanas BBQ. Yum
