Wow. We are really doing it...we are about to hop in Myrtle the Turtle and literally turtle on down the road. The plan today was to try to get 325 miles and spend the night in a Flying J's parking lot, then roughly the same amount tomorrow that would get us to a camp ground in Kentucky for a couple of days to rest up. Last night we were talking about stops...and we realized that Churchill Downs is along our route. It is about 80 miles before the campsite, so it makes sense to try to get closer tonight so we can catch a few races on Wednesday.
Yikes...now we plan to do closer to 400 miles today. Can I do it? It'll be tough, my back hates it when I sit down, and hates it even more when I drive for extended periods. However, if we do that today, we won't have to drive more than a couple of hours any given day for most of the rest of the trip.
We can always pull over and watch a movie every hour or so......we'll see how it goes and I will try to update you at the end of day.
Churchill Downs??? Fun!!!
Talk to you all soon.
