Heading south

20121229-101024.jpg

We left Michigan headed for Enterprise, AL on Tuesday December 18 with the trailer stuffed to the gills with Christmas presents, some miscellaneous stuff Ami had left at our house and an exercise machine she also wanted. The exercise machine is too close to the foreground to appear in the picture and its a bit blurry but you get the idea:

We needed to be in Enterprise no later than Sunday, 12/23 but chose to leave early to beat the rain and snow forecast for later in the week. The weather man was right this time, we had sunny to partly cloudy weather all day Tuesday and Wednesday. Traffic was not too bad and we avoided rush hour in all the major cities – Cincinnati, Nashville and Birmingham. We did pass through Louisville about 4 pm tuesday but did not have much trouble going around the city via I264 to connect to I65. Spent the night in a Comfort Inn in Elizabethtown, KY that was OK but had clearly had its best days when Regan was president.

We stopped for a picnic lunch the next day at the Alabama welcome center rest area north of Huntsville. They celebrate Huntsville’s role in the space program with what has to be the coolest rest area decoration ever – a Saturn rocket.

The trailer is small enough anyway but this picture really makes it look small!

We arrived at Ami’s house just in time for dinner. Todd and Amanda and the kids came over too. It was great to see everyone, especially the little grand children who grow so fast.

The Snoozy is now parked in Josh and Ami’s back yard for the Christmas holidays. We will be using it as an extra guest room before heading further south soon after New Years Day.
