On the road to Duke - day 6

Here we are again...another day of driving and we've reached Dandridge, TN. Lee and I really think Tennessee is a really pretty state. It's so green and lush and makes a beautiful change from Oklahoma and the desert.

We left Memphis this morning without ever seeing Elvis. We were crushed! We'll just have to come back when we have more time so we can hunt him down....he is still alive right? :-)

Tennessee is one wide state - we drove all day and are still in the state. We went from the western edge of the state to the eastern edge and the roads were great again. Poor Oklahoma - they must be ashamed of their roads (at least they should be!).

We drove about 425 miles today and had to stop in Nashville to pick up more oxygen again. It's a really nice looking town and I can't wait to come back as a tourist. It will be fun to live so close to all the stuff that I've always wanted to see but it was too far away. Anyone who wants to be a tourist can come out to NC and you could stay with us in our two bedroom apartment. We brought our air mattress with us...

Lee was really distressed today because he had to pay $2.48 for a gallon of gas today. He's been really spoiled by the great prices. How quickly he's forgotten the CA prices.

We take off in the morning to arrive at our new home tomorrow afternoon. We a little nervous and excited at the same time. I don't know how long it will take to get Internet so it may be a few days before I post again. The movers arrive Sunday and Lee, Missy and I are going to spend several days unpacking and getting used to our new surroundings.

We'll write soon.

Love to all,
Lee, Wendy and Missy
