Day 15 - Thursday

Got picked up by Martha and Jackson at Bristol tri-cities airport.
We drove to Bristol to have lunch and do some shopping at the local mall.
We drove back to Whitetop about 2 hours away.
Martha had to do some teaching, but I rested at Jackson's place and we visited Audrey's place to have a look at her fiddles.
Martha came back to Jackson's place in the evening for a catch up and planning for next day!

I sat next to Austin going to Bristol. She's from Johnson City. She was in Oregon visiting some friends. She gave me a quick run down of life in the South!

It was great to meet them again, but now in the USA instead of Australia. I was looking forward to hanging out with them over the next week.
