I Know Every Mile Will Be Worth My While

Epic American Road Trip, Day 2!

The list of states crossed today is a lot shorter than yesterday, but I'd like to think we covered the same distance and just happened to tackle big states today. 

After a tank refill (Worse than the commute between Kitchener and Hamilton on gas) and a very long shower (What? BBW products in hotel bathrooms!), we left Virginia in pretty warm weather and continued on our way. We switched highways through Virginia, which is probably why it felt like we were there for so darn long. 

Charlottesville, VA
Look! Geography! And grass!

We finally hit North Carolina, and then half an hour into South Carolina, we finally found a hotel containing an (apparently rare) indoor pool that was Cracker Barrel adjacent. There are seriously signs for Cracker Barrel every three miles, I’m surprised we lasted this long without succumbing to the pressure. 

Welcome Center, SC
It'd be so cool if it actually looked like that.

It was starting to get all rainy when we were arriving at the hotel, and I hear the weather back home wasn’t too great either. We heard reports of tornado weather in Georgia from people in the hotel pool (who were from Ferguson’s Falls, half an hour from Perth), but I guess we shall see!

A total of 898km today (around 2175km total for me). Tomorrow we should be in Orlando!


Note: I had chicken and dumplings for the first time ever at Cracker Barrel. Fat kid powers, activate!
