We left Florida on Friday and drove as far as Ashburn, GA where we spent the night. We arrived at the hotel fairly early so I got plenty of rest and we had a real nice dinner at Shonney's. After a wonderful breakfast, we hit the road. The road conditions were good and the traffic was light, even in Atlanta, so we made a lot of miles. Our journey took us through 4 states. We managed to travel to Metropolis and spend the night there. This gave us the opportunity to see my parents and have a Birthday Lunch with them before heading onward. Sunday we had to stop at Tuscola, IL due to high winds, rain and freezing conditions making driving risky as nightfall approached. We should finish our journey on Monday.
