Road Trip Day 1

This morning we left out early for Pennington Gap. The trip down was pretty uneventful. We found a few things to take photographs on the way down.

We stopped in Hillsville to visit with Wanda and almost got stuck in a huge traffic backup. We were able to find an alternate route around the mess. Along the way there was a herd of Shetland Ponies, really cool to see. We hit Kingsport at dinner time and had dinner at the Golden Coral with Teresa.

We finally made it to the motel around 8:30 p.m. after a stop off in Woodway for Mamaw to visit with an old friend.

Once all checked in I headed out to for coffee and to get ice. Coffee all secured from the McDonald's in front of the motel, I stopped at the ice machine to fill up the ice bucket. It was a good thing that I'd paid cash for the coffee...the ice machine was coin operated!! Now I've done a bit of traveling and so has Mom, and I've never run across a coin operated ice machine. Really strange.
