On The Road Again - Part IV

We left Chicago at around 11 AM. Shortly thereafter, I missed an exit and we lost some time trying to get back on track. It's amazing how annoyed you get when a journey of 800 miles becomes a journey of 820 miles because you misread a sign. The error was forgotten soon enough as we cruised happily through such cosmopolitan hot spots as Indianapolis, Cincinatti, and Knoxville. We stopped in Asheville around 11:30 PM to dine with Calder S at the Waffle House - a last minute (but most welcome) addition to the itinerary. We made it to Columbia at 3 AM and crashed on my brother's floor. I had a quick chat with Billy in the morning before he split for work, then we had brunch with Thornwell S before hitting the road for Charleston.

We started in LA at 8:15 AM on Wednesday and finished up on James Island at 3 PM on Sunday. There are about 3000 more miles on the Volvo. Jason and I agree that thet trip went more quickly than expected, was totally worth it, and is not something we are keen to do again soon.
