We left our home at 5am and planned on driving pretty far on our first day because usually hubby is hyped up on the first day. Leaving at that time was just perfect because we missed rush hour in all the major cities we went through which means we went further than we expected. We went through Asheville, Knoxville, Nashville, and St. Louis. After 12 hours of driving about 800 miles, we ended up in Columbia, Missouri for the night. When we checked into the Hampton Inn, we met another couple from Simpsonville (about 5 minutes from where we live). Dinner was pretty good at the Cracker Barrel right next door and then we just relaxed the rest of the evening. Tomorrow may be another long drive day.
