7/13/05 - day one. Due to prior commitments, this year was going to have to be another three (and a half) day whirlwind trip. The catch: it was several hundred miles further. Knowing that we couldn't leave until the afternoon, I looked in my (replacement) trusty atlas to find a way to split the drive to South Carolina in two. There wasn't an obvious choice going straight across Tennessee, but a quick check of an alternate route through Chattanooga showed that it was only slightly longer.
A year older, any wiser?
