On The Road (or not): Day Three

We spent the day sitting in the campground in Trenton, GA. Forecasts were for horrible wind and rain all day along I-59 with a chance of T-storms, hail and even a tornado or two thrown in for good measure.

Discretion being the better part of valor, we opted to sit this dance out. Well, the winds never got as bad at the campground as the prognosticators had forecast and we didn't get any hail. We DID get lots and lots of rain, however, and 35-40 miles southeast of here off I-75 near Adairsville, GA they DID get a tornado.

We have a long day tomorrow as a result of our lay over. We are due at Berwick, LA to join the folks in our group. It would have been a mere 100 miles/2 hour day, but now we are looking at 550 miles and 10 hours. But it will all be in sunshine and mild winds. We'll start early (7 AM EST is our goal for departure) and boogie on south.We do gain an extra hour when we cross into Alabama and enter the Central Time Zone so that helps.

We're just glad you two are safe. Tumbling about the countryside in a disintegrating Winnie would have been a real downer.
