From Ohio to Tennessee and nice days drive.

Where are we today ?
        Good nights sleep last night, windows open and we were both up before 6 am. Ready to compute, have our coffees and wait for the sun to come up about 7:30 we were on the road. Another long travel day for us but thats just fine. The roads are good, not much traffic, (well a little slow down in Columbus OHIO with a fender bender, no big deal) some light winds, and about two minutes of sprinkling rain.
403 miles (648kms) today
        As usual we stop at pretty much every rest area to get out and stretch, and made lunch at one about noon. Really nice that we have the Sirius Satellite radio, just kinda boogie along with the tunes from the 60's that we both enjoy makes the miles slip on by.
        Carried on enjoying the scenery and fall colors thru Kentucky and Tennessee travelling through the Mountains/hills. No big hurry just want to get further south and was great being able to wear shorts and t-shirts again. 75 F most of the day just perfect. We fuelled at the Flying J (Knoxville Tennessee) and gas only $2.70 a gallon (at a 15 % exchange .81 cents a liter) WOW, sure do love these prices. We saved $61.00 on todays fill up alone compared to fuelling up in Ontario.

wonderful fall colors
love Tennessee
more fall colors
         Once we checked in here at Camp Walmart, got to read for a bit, do some computing then time to make supper. Tonight a wonderful salad again, and a baked Basa filet in the oven. Not real cool to set up my Weber Q in a Walmart parking lot ya know. Flying J Last night Walmart tonight we like to change scenery, plus do some shopping in the morning.
our quiet spot for the night
tasty meal, hit the spot
         Make a shopping list and will hit the store before sunrise tomorrow, get what we need and on our way to Unadilla Georgia in the morning.
         So there we had another fun travel day, enjoying the scenery etc... warmer weather is just perfect for us, thats why we are doing this. Not much sightseeing we want to do, have done most of it in the past 9 years, just wanna move on down the road, from one place to another.
         Thanks for stopping by taking a peak again, sure do love this lifestyle, moving around the countryside.

  6. If you're going to tote around this "Weber Q man of blogland" title, shouldn't it include Walmart parking lots? :-) We're ahead of you, in West Georgia going toward Florida.

    1. Overnight parking in a Walmart only, not a campground. Don't want to ruin the privilege like we have seen some people do. There is a time and a place for everything.
      Travel safe.

  8. You are definitely moving fast. I most certainly would't set up the Weber at Walmart either. We're regular customers in their parking lot on our travels south. It's not something Walmart smiles at or other folks either.

    1. That for sure, we like to enjoy the convenience of being able to do so. Our house is self contained.

  9. Even on a full travel day we don't cover 400 miles. We think anything over 200 is a long day. Enjoy the warm weather.

    1. As long as we are off the road around 3 pm we will do longer days, with being parked for the night with full hookups, we start and go, when the sun comes up.

  13. I would tell Craig no on the Walmart Weber. We rarely stop at them anyway, and Craig is a bit new at some of the etiquette of parkinglot camping.

    1. We occasionally do a Walmart when it is convenient, and is parking not camping.

  15. A great day - nice fall colours! We only do a couple hundred too, mostly because we have a five year old but there are days when you just need to make time. Also depends on the roads.
