We're almost completely loaded up, with just some personal stuff to go in the morning. We'll be pulling out of the driveway at first light. We might be stopping at the Smokey Pig BBQ in Bowling Green for lunch, but that's not set in stone. The more probable stop will be the Petro at Exit 86 on I-65. Dinner tomorrow should be at Miss Myra's. And then we'll get to Mobile Friday afternoon in plenty of time for lleechef to consume seven tons of oysters..

We're in Charlotte. We landed about 5 or 10 minutes late for no apparent reason (we took off right on time) The first time I was forced to check ever luggage because they ran out of space (US air didn't charge us) We were going to go to LaWan's Soul Food Restaurant  for dinner, I called them and they ran out of fried chicken, so we went to Nana's Soul Food Kitchen instead. (And its still good 6 months after my first visit) 
 
We're at the hotel now, I'm using the hotel computer, I didn't bring a laptop with me.
Off to Atlanta for lunch tomorrow with Heart break Soup and then off to Birmingham and Miss Myra's for dinner

I FINALLY made it to Nashville about 6:30 PM Central time. I had to go back to the house twice :( 1st time I forgot my handicap placard and extra cash. I was only a mile away. 2nd time I was 20 miles away, I had forgotten my shirts. They were hanging on the front door I'd missed them 2x... I wasn't a happy camper.

I did have a nice chat with Paul aka Sundancer. He sounded good.

Had some rain in Southern VA and Eastern TN. It cleared up by the time I hit Knoxville. Poverty Pete, CajunKing, MY cousin Johnnie and I are meeting for lunch tomorrow. I took Johnnie and Dina out for dinner. They people are just great, I basically have my own room here.

Our flight last night from Atlanta to Mobile may have been the most aggrevating I have ever encountered. We had already sat through a long delay at the gate, but finally loaded onto the plane. We were on the runway, next to take off, when were told to go back to the gate. Apparently, when they loaded the plane with luggage and other things, they did it in a manner that caused balance issues that needed resolved. First time I have ever experienced that.

To make a long story short, I had promised Mariton oysters at Wintzell's last night, but got in so late that we had to settle for McDonald's drive-thu for her, while I chose Checkers, which was my first ever time eating at one.

At least we are here and safe. We have a fun day ahead, with plans to spend most of it in Montgomery, while I make a return trip to Pie Lab in Greensboro.

Safe travels and looking forward to seeing everyone!

I sure hope those Cruise Ship Passengers get trucked out to where-ever by tomorrow. I am sure they are "less than happy" ( and rightly so) and want to go home...but We want "Happy Faces" and our reserved spaces to be available....
  It is bright and sunny today...55  and rising. a little over 12 hors til we depart.
 
We have been waiting for this weekend for a long time.

After an outstanding meal at Isaiah's in Montgomery, Mariton and I are in much better moods. The food was even better than I remember. And I did warn Isaiah Sankey that a bunch of Roadfooders are invading tomorrow.

To All Glee Clubbers....havea great time in Mobile ( and Pensacola if you head there).  From reports, it appears the hotel rooms booked by Carnival are for the crew members.  The latest I've heard was they are planning on sending the passengers to NOLA via buses on arrival and clearance.  Not sur ethe truth to that as there are too many rumors "floating" around.  But it makes sense that the rooms would be booked for crew while they get the ship cleaned and repaired.  Most of these folks aren't US citizens and they live on board.  So you might have them around for your entire visit.  But chat up with any you meet.  Most speak English and are very friendly.  Gonna be a bit chilly and brezzy for you.  But hey it's winter here.

I just helped out perhaps the crew and passengers by giving up my room for two nights at the hotel.  I was penalized by Priceline but I felt it might be of some help to those poor folks on board that horrid ship "Triumph"

Hi everyone. Unfortunately, due to a sinus infection that just won't clear, we've made the hard decision that I'm staying home this weekend. You will still get my better half - Ralph is still coming to Mobile, but I'm sadly going to miss this one. The big issue is that problem sinuses and planes just don't mix. 
 
Have a WONDERFUL time, and please don't let my husband ride too many mechanical bulls! I am very sorry to miss seeing so many great people, but I will be there in spirit!

So sorry to hear about your travel issue- mine was nothing compared to yours.
 
icrecreamchick
 
I'm so bummed you're not going to make it, hopefully we'll get to see you sometime over the summer. I'm glad to hear Ralph will still be joining us
 
We're in Birmingham now. We started out this morning at Dilworth Coffee House in Charlotte. We met Heartbreak Soup at Community BBQ just outside of Atlanta in Decatur for lunch.  I got exactly what I had back in August, Pulled pork and rib sandwich with Brunswick Stew and Slaw. Sandra and I shared one meal, we did get an extra side- their Mac N Cheese.
We then drove to Birmingham and climbed (did not use the elevator) the vulcan statue. I've never seen traffic so horrendous during rush hour as I saw in Birmingham. I'm not sure why. Unfortunately Michael Hoffman and Lleechef got caught in the traffic and were unable to meet us at Miss Myra's BBQ. We both had a quarter of a chicken (white meat) with the white bbq sauce, I had the baked beans and deviled eggs, Sandra had the potato salad and green beans. We shared a slice of lemon ice box pie....
 
And...I picked up a tray of  Miss Myra's  banana pudding for everyone to share tomorrow.
 
Tomorrow, off to Montgomery to meet Poverty Pete and Mike S for lunch at Isaiah's and then we hope to arrive in Mobile by 4:30pm

MikeS and PovertyPete left our adventure and were headed to do laundry and pack for the trip South.  I will be thinking about you all in spirit.  I wish I could be there with you all.
 
Dad went to the DR today and got the all clear to ease back into normal life again, no heavy work or lifting no bending over still but his labs looked good and the DR was happy, so Dad was extremely happy and drove us all to dinner at the local AUTHENTIC Mexican place in Lebanon.  (You know it is good when 75% of the customers are hispanic and enjoying themselves)  Dad, his wife and MIL had a pitcher of Margaritas so I got to be the DD home.  It was good to see him smiling again.

I got some HOT CHICKEN in the fridge that will clean those sinuses right up, my nose is still running from today's sampling.
