Sunday, August 3, 2008

I forgot to mention before, that as we traveled down through Kentucky to Tennessee on Friday we went back into Central time from Eastern time. It just seemed strange to return to Central time since we had changed time zones in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan and we felt we were moving in a southeastern direction. So after 2 days we returned today to Eastern time as we traveled from Crossville, Tennessee to just south of Roanoke, Virginia. The traffic, especially truck traffic, was heavy on I-40 and I-81. We stopped after a little more than 300 miles at Dixie Caverns Campground. This campground could use some cosmetic work although we do have full hook-ups including 50 amp electric, cable TV and WiFi. Tomorrow we plan to be home, with about 270 more miles of travel. Gas prices were close to $4.00 when we started our trip, hit a high of $4.25 and now we are seeing prices as low as $3.55.
