I left Memphis and headed east, along I-40, at a serious clip, stopping only to stretch and keep track of some communications that were important to me. One stretch stop was Parker’s Crossroads, west of Nashville.
I drove around a bit in Nashville, but disquiet kept me going. I did stop, briefly, at Crossville, to check my messages at a community college, and was reassured that all was well, with a few very important people. Knoxville, Bristol, Radford, Roanoke and Harrisonburg came and went. I stopped in Staunton, where Sleep Inn and Rubber Ducky awaited.
Thus, Day 4 of my current journey came to an end.
The next morning dawned cool and wet- no Shenandoah trek on Day 5, as my FB friends may recall.
I kept on going, to Lebanon, PA,
to meet the first pair of friends, and the first of two back-to-back meals, at The Gin Mill.
Here are Sandra and Natalie.
I had an hour or so of pleasant conversation with these two ladies, then headed south a bit, to Oley, PA and Glick Farm.
The meal, prepared by Beth, consisted of Caprese Salad, Wax Beans/Ham and Potato Casserole/Homemade Root Beer.
After dinner, we took a ride to Oley’s covered bridges. One of them was sufficiently in light to be photographed.
I was fortunate to have a nice country bed in which to rest the night. Day 5 was quite the fine one.
