The third day of the trip started off terrific with a great night’s sleep followed by a Texas-shaped waffle. It got a little worse when one of the headlights burnt out, and it got nervous once we realized that, at some point, someone had stolen the registration sticker off our license plate. In the end, though, we ended up where we wanted, had some great food, and got to hang out with some old friends. That’s pretty much the exact definition of a great day.

There are still 2 days left, but they are the shortest days. Our goal for tomorrow is to get to Knoxville, Tennessee. That’s about 8 hours away, and it’ll leave me another 8 hours to Dahlgren. We’re getting close…
