left Massachusetts early in the morning and started the drive back down south! Arrived in Winchester, Virginia Sunday night to sleep and take a much needed chips, salsa, and queso break.
Monday: left Virginia and drove to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to visit with family.
earned myself a pool and beerita day, which was then interrupted by my cousin's five pound yorkie crawling under a barbed wire fence to chase a damn cow across an entire hilly field. Fyi, the cow won and the yorkie gave up. Chris came to the rescue and no animals were harmed! Not pictured are the cow and yorkie because they were long gone by the time I remembered I'm a blogger and need to document this situation or else it never happened. #bloggerproblems
got back on the road and headed home to Louisiana! Enjoyed the five pounds of crawfish and a daiquiri my mother dearest had waiting. Real talk: In Louisiana, we have drive-thru daiquiri shops. Yes, you can order a daiquiri to-go from your car, you heard that right.
ate my weight in Nola cajun food. Typical move by me. That's crawfish étouffée and red beans & rice. If you've never had this before, shame on you!
got on the road one last time and ended up in Dallas!
Whoah now. I'm exhausted just replaying the events all over again. It really was a pretty drive, just a little too long. If you don't hear from me, it's because I'm sleeping for the next week and a half, unless this one decides to wake me since she's all caught up on her beauty rest from the whole time driving.
Ps- thanks for all the tips you all left to help survive driving that far alone!
I'm curious, what's the furthest you've ever driven? Did you enjoy it?
