Petal Mississippi to Cumberland Gap Kentucky (Day 1)

June 10, 2011

Petal, Mississippi to Cumberland Gap, Kentucky

Woke up early but got a late start, somewhere around 7:00am Friday morning. Today is the start of a 4000 mile round trip to Maine

for the wife and myself…I know the trip started out as a motorcycle trip but has now turned into a 10 day car trip with the wife

and myself.

Not a lot to report on the first day just a few photos from the road along the way.

I think we put in some where around 600 miles most being interstate…snore, snore.

passed through Alabama


Then we entered into Kentucky

A new state for both of us, we entered a cool tunnel

that went through a mountain, it put out Mobile Tunnel to shame.

Then we entered the Cumberland Gap National Park, beautiful place. Our plan was to camp out but it as somewhere around 95 degrees outside…

just too hot to camp. So to town we went, about 5 minutes away.

Well come to find out the genealogy convention was in town (old people everywhere)

so we got the last room available. The room was at the Holiday Inn Express,

it ended up being the executive suite, Welcome to our room!

My motorcycle riding buddy David would have approved. (Inside joke)

Well we were tired from the days drive so we headed across the street to eat at the King Buffet,

I give it a 2 out of 5. Then off to bed we went. Early start in the morning…lots more coming soon.
