Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee!
The past two days have been long, but good.
Adam and I left Connecticut around 6:00 a.m. yesterday, and then made our way down to Roanoke, VA, meaning we drove through a total of 6 states: Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. We avoided tolls, most major cities and traffic, and it was an easy drive down to Roanoke, made especially easy because Maeby slept most of the way there.
We stayed at the Comfort Inn after finding a low rate on Expedia, and enjoyed our stay there. It was the first time Maeby ever stayed in a hotel and she didn’t have the easiest time (too many people coming and going, and she felt the need to bark during those times), but overall we enjoyed our stay. We especially enjoyed the fact that this hotel was located near a mall, with tons of shops and restaurants. After a long day of traveling, we picked up dinner at a nearby restaurant and then ate and took it easy in our room.
This morning, we woke up around 7:00 a.m., stopped at Walmart for shampoo and snacks (and wine), filled up with cheap gas ($2.83 a gallon, WTF), and then made our drive down to Nashville.
On our way down to Tennessee, we hit a ton of rain and it was definitely a little difficult to see clearly sometimes. It was kind of scary, and that’s saying a lot because I’m usually fine driving in snow and rain.
Before we got to the hotel and after doing a lot of research on barbecue places in Nashville (because hello, we’re in Nashville), we stopped at Peg Leg Porker. We pretty much ordered one of everything:
Dry ribs, wet ribs, chicken (some barbecue, some hot), coleslaw, mac n cheese, baked beans, green beans and my favorite, pulled pork nachos.
10/10, would eat again.
Actually, I will eat again because we couldn’t finish it, so round two is coming up in a couple hours.
