Stay over: Hampton Inn, Ashland, Kentucky (Trivia Question: Ashland Kentucky is the birth place of what country music stars? Hint, there are multiple answers)
After Paul finished the world class packing of the Odyssey, we departed Silver Spring at approximately 11:30 a.m.
Abby could hardly contain her excitement at the Journey ahead of her...she fell asleep before we were on the Beltway.
We took Route 70 across Maryland, stopped in Cumberland to feed Abby and Mom and Dad Then across the West Virginia line to Charleston where we stopped for a walk around the Capitol Building grounds and to let Abby play and enjoy a little al fresco milk dinner on the lawn. Then we docked for the night in Ashland, Kentucky where Abby enjoyed playing and kicking in her first motel room ever.
Not too many thrills for the day, but we made it and we are even ready for day 2.
