Marilyn's Life From East to West

Road Trip to the West Coast: Day 1

Today was Day 1… 8 hours down… 24 more to go!  We went through Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and finally Conway, Arkansas (our first real pit stop thanks to Triple A).

It was actually pretty cool to get to see all of the “Welcome to ?” signs and I would have taken pictures, but unfortunately we were driving separately.  Arkansas is the only state that I have never driven through before and I had pretty low expectations but it is actually a beautiful area just from the highway.  Overall it was a pretty long/low-key day.  Will update more tomorrow on our 12 hour drive to Albuquerque, New Mexico!

Note to any travelers:  Always follow directions from your provider; don’t try to outsmart them, which is what we (Carter) did today and we were putzing around the wrong side of Birmingham for a while  🙂
