Day 1: A Short Day to Ease into Driving

Tuesday, May 28th. Manchester, TN KOA campsite # 3. Miles: 200. Central Time Zone. Elevation: 1,060 feet.

We had a quiet day traveling which was good for getting started and organized on our trip. We encountered no real traffic tie ups till we got to Chattanooga, but even that wasn’t bad. We pulled into the KOA at 2:00 pm (earlier than usual and about 100 miles shorter driving than usual). After St Louis we plan to drive longer days while making our dash to Richland.

It looks like we will encounter rough weather in the country’s midsection… tornadoes. I look forward to getting safely through Missouri and Kansas. The weather won’t be bad till Thursday, when we will already be at Nancy & Gil’s home in Wildwood, MO. They have a basement and tornado sirens so we will be all set for storms.

    Safe travels. Hopefully you will avoid the storms or they will avoid you.


  2. Holly, 200 miles is our kind of travel day! Unfortunately, when you have such a long way to go it is hard to do that for an entire trip. I hope you will miss all the storms.

    Hi Holly and John,
    Hope you have a safe journey – and miss the bad weather. I will enjoy keeping up with you on your travels to see your family.
