OK, What a long drive. My first leg was almost 700 Miles, which landed me in Blue Ridge GA. First the good news, The scenery was Beautiful!!. Now the bad news. Since I decided to take all back roads, there wasn't any where to pull over and get the spectacular shots of the landscape, but not to worry, we still have a good 12 to 14 days left on this trip.

I'm tired, I'm going to bed now. Thanks for keeping me company!!! Keep sending those e-mails!!! Joe... read more

Ah, Sweet Home Alabama - our journey into the deep South. As we crossed the state border from Georgia it seemed as though time had stood still about 60 years ago and not in a good way. There are an interesting number of trailers and run-down houses dotted around with some hungry-looking horses hanging about but no real towns. We were beginning to be glad that we were only staying for 2 nights...... Our hotel was nice enough though and had a fridge (to keep the necessary alcohol) and a shower with a massaging head which is nice after lots of hours on the Greyhound bus. We ventured into Montgomery town to check out the sights - the bible that is our Lonely Planet guide had said you could do it all in an afternoon and ... read more

Había conducido más de ocho horas pero aún así me costó dormir. Rápidamente descubrí cómo correr las cortinas de la habitación para impedir que entrara luz alguna y he podido dormir sin sobresaltos hasta pasadas las diez cuando la encargada de la limpieza ha empezado a aporrear la puerta de mi habitación para avisarme de que era la hora. He llamado a recepción y me han confirmado que la salida se podía hacer hasta las once, por lo que he salido y he tratado de calmar a la mujer, quien ya me quería echar. A punto he estado de quedarme unas horas más durmiendo pero estoy de gira y no se vale parar a la primera de cambio. He cogido mis trastos y he vuelto a la carretera. Por el camino he decidido seguir hacia el ... read more
