Saturday Nov. 3rd - Left Telluride today, bound for Nashville. After a quick stop at a natural hot spring, we buckled down for a long day of driving. We stopped for a late lunch/early dinner at the Frontier Restaurant, across from the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque. It had been featured on an episode of Man vs. Food. Cheap, delicious, and filling:) Drove long into the night, making it into Oklahoma before pulling over for a nap, which was an hour longer thanks to daylight savings. Sunday Nov. 4th - Woke up early and pressed on for Tennessee. We arrived in Nashville right around dinner time, and Allison's cousin Sam, his wife Brynn, and their 8 month old daughter Freya took us out to their favorite dinner spot. Afterwards Sam showed us around downtown. ... read more
