Day 1 of 5 is complete!
After getting off to a bit of a late start on Monday, we trekked for 600 miles all the way to Jackson, Mississippi. The drive was fairly uneventful, though it was neat seeing a state neither of us visited previously (Miss.).
For whatever reason, the interstate between Columbia and Jackson seemed to be completely filled with semi-trucks. We saw more than enough large pieces of tire throughout the highway to give us a scare and cause us to use more caution in our driving, and at one point a semi's tire even popped mere yards in front of us. Thank the Lord, we remained in safety's hold.
To sum up the first day, I'd say that we are just really grateful for our safety thus far and very glad that we brought a lot of healthy snacks! Not having to eat fast food for every meal and snack has been a blessing, especially since we're severely lacking exercise this week.
We love and miss you all!
