And We're Off!

Day 1: 365 Miles
Total: 365 Miles

Our latest-greatest trip began today. After lots of planning and preparation, much more than usual, we began our cross country jaunt this afternoon. This time Sharon and I decided to be adventurous and take the 1937 Ford on our trek. With a relatively modern drivetrain and suspension, along with creature comforts like air conditioning and power windows, it should be comfortable and reliable, not to mention a blast to drive. And so far, so good. We managed 365 trouble-free miles today as we drove from Brevard through the Cumberland Gap to Cave City, Kentucky. We're now in our wigwam, getting ready for a good night's sleep before our trip to Chicago in the morning.

So here are a few pictures before the trip begins in earnest tomorrow.

Sleep in a wigwam!
