Where I stayed
Paradise aka The Parents' House
After about 45 minutes, the fun of the weekend roared its ugly head and it was time for a nap. Hooray Weis parking lot outside of Frederick! And of course who can't resist a Dollar Menu respite after a nice 20 minute nap, certainly not this guy.
I got an audiobook for this drive (and for the first time ever): Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
A couple stops for gas, water, and a bag of Cape Code chips interrupted the calm and uneventful drive. The weather throughout the entire trip to NC was absolutely beautiful, especially the image of the sun setting against the backdrop of the neverending mountainscapes on either side of I-81. I arrived into Lenoir around 1AM to find my sister sleeping on the couch waiting for me. After exchanging some very quick pleasantries, it was off to bed to get some shuteye before setting off in the morning for the Great Smoky Mountains.
