1235 miles out of 2654 done

Graduate... check
Get married... check
Move 1400 miles across country... checking  :)

We have begun our journey of driving over 2600 miles in two weeks.  We have driven round trip to Tennessee for our honeymoon, returned back to Lynchburg to pack our two apartments in our two cars and we have convoyed down to Georgia for a few days before we take off for the Rockies.

Tennessee took us by surprise with how much we enjoyed our experience there.  People that we met along the way were incredibly friendly and it is, to say the least, a beautiful state.  We stayed for a night on the Big South Fork Canyon.  It was the first time I have ever seen a canyon and it seems like I am just a much a fan of mountain size hole in the ground as I am a mountain.

We found an awesome coffee shop called Remedy Coffee and Conversation that became a haven for us while we were there.  It is second only to our favorite coffee shop of all time, The White Hart, in Lynchburg, VA.

We got to Georgia with our two apartments packed into our cars and now they are spread out in the garage waiting to be packed up again.  Hopefully we can pack them tighter this time so we can get the last few things in our cars and still be able to see out of our passenger window :)  Today we are off to get lunch at Matthew's Cafeteria and then off to Grami and Dun Dun's to see them and to swim a little.  Tomorrow we are hitting the road and shooting to get to St Louis, MO for the first night.

*** I have pictures to put up with this post but Blogger has been weird so they will be put up later.
