We are hoping for clearer skies to go across the Appalachians again this morning - I am excited to see this range again. Hopefully the car won't get more grim. :)
It is amazing to have the internet so available to me on this trip. I have spent the morning route-adjusting for weather since we opted to not cut through western Virginia and into Kentucky (weather system). I use the Weather Channel Web site a lot to get current conditions and forecast. Honestly, it is has been pretty right on so far.
Now our plan is to back track to Nashville, TN on I-40 and then basically go up I-24 to I-70 to I-29 to I-90. Our BIG goal today - gain an hour. :) We slept in an additional hour this morning because we are counting on it.
We are basically going to start angling for I-90 (plan on picking up at Sioux Falls, South Dakota) while trying to sort of go up a quiet section of the country. It is actually sort of funny, we are adding on some states I wasn't planning on and dropping others.
