We both woke up feeling like we got hit by a truck. Not to be a Debbie downer, but too many hours in the car breathing the same air, coffee overload, unhealthy food, creepy hotels and lack of sleep has made us sick. I find that so ironic because I NEVER get sick when I’m working at the hospital and people cough on me all day. Nevertheless, we still love road trips and are enjoying the journey! I had been searching for a Dunkin Donuts since we left California and it was our lucky day because there was a DD in Missouri! We plugged it in the GPS and knew that in 3 hours we would be enjoying delicious hazelnut coffee and munchkins! Just the thought of it made our achy bodies and sore throats feel a little better.
Until the GPS led us into the airport. WHAT? The dunkin donuts was IN the airport. Oh no! Davey was quick to search for another one and when we saw the orange and pink DD in the distance we were like giddy children! The girl was SO nice and gave us 10 munchkins for the price of one! DD… always going the extra mile!
And we were ready to drive the many miles ahead now that we were on a sugar/caffiene high. We were a little dissapointed though becuase the next 3 states we drove through had their welcome signs in the middle of the highway so we couldn’t get out and take a picture. So without further ado, here’s Missouri, Illinois, and Kentucky… and speaking of states, we have found 38 state license plates!
We stopped for gas and Davey went inside to “buy a bag of carrots”. This is what he came back with:
We saw some pretty sweet cars on the road. Well, we almost missed this car because it blended in with the surroundings. I wonder if his color scheme helps him avoid speeding tickets?
We finally made it to Tennessee! Oh Daveyyyy, are you from Tennessee? Because you’re the only ten I see. Haha! Couldn’t resist!
Once we were in Nashville, we met our friends, Jack and Cherie for dinner. Jack and Cherie have made a huge impact on our lives… in fact they were the ones who inspired and suggested this adventure that we’re on! We had a BLAST talking and catching up while feasting on some amazing Tex Mex. Good friends, chips, salsa and tacos… doesn’t get much better than that!
