It's road trip time again, folks. After spending the past five days 1) being sick, 2) recovering from being sick and 3) running errands, I managed to hit the road today, destination New Orleans. I plan on getting there this Saturday and, once I'm there, I'll figure out how long I'll stay.
I'm going to New Orleans to visit my friend, Chris (photos will be taken, be patient), who moved down there about three months ago. Chris recently started a job with the city's public defender services and has asked me to volunteer my time while I'm there -- which I'll do -- but I'm also planning on exploring the city (camera in hand) because I've never been.
What do you think? Got any suggestions for places to visit?
I didn't make it very far today -- I only drove about five hours (left in the afternoon) and I'm spending the night at The Hampton Inn in Roanoke. I've decided Hampton is my highway hotel of choice. The rooms have new bedding, free WiFi and there's hot breakfast in the morning. Of course, I don't actually eat breakfast . . .
Despite my best efforts on packing, I managed to forget my iPod charger. There's an Apple Store in Knoxville, but apparently Target sells chargers too.
A good thing. 11 more hours in the car and I need my music.
