The Tennessee accent is so heavy I didn’t understand a word the motel clerk said last night.  I think it is more drawn out than a Georgia drawl.  Wow.

Leaving Knoxville, TN,  it was very overcast and still so when I got to Nashville. I think I expected a big town with a huge area full of country western neon billboards advertising the latest shows.   Instead it is a just a spread out, hilly town. There is a strange juxtaposition of the Greek style architecture of the capital and the courthouse against modern skyscrapers.

A construction crew working on a remodeling of the Capital steps and entries,  let me use their parking area so that Charlie and I could walk around the capital. It is on a high hill on top of another hill in town. Boy, if you climbed the steps everyday you would have the world’s strongest quads.  Casey, if you rolled down the lawn of that hill, you would have bounced out of town.

Leaving Nashville, The low lying wooded mountains flattened out a bit into fields with several kinds of crops that i couldn't identify as I got into Kentucky.   This has certainly been an interesting way to learn USA geography.  I also hit rain which got increasingly heavy. Trucks sped by nearly swamping my car so I decided to end my day in Paducah KY.   There is a riverfront area here on the Ohio River (I think its the Ohio).  If there is no rain tomorrow in the morning I will go and explore.
