Two weeks ago, Cliff and I set off on a road trip. The newlyweds left North Carolina in July, and we offered to drive down their second car. Destination: Dallas, Texas!
This seven post series will chronicle highlights of the trip . I’m hoping to add some insights on midlife, inspired by six days on the road. (I promise to be brief.)
We spent our first night at a lodge in the North Carolina Mountains. Night Two was here, at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. I thought we were staying in a regular hotel room at the former train station. Cliff surprised me by booking one of their restored railroad cars.
First insight: No matter how old you are, there’s nothing like sleeping in a cozy, elegant Victorian railway car to make you feel NOT so old and NOT so Victorian.
