MNOR Summary and progress report

Leave a comment

There were a lot of firsts from the MNOR road trip.

Driving a Chevy Spark
Being with the Graham family for a Christmas meal
Casey Jones Museum and Village
Visiting a freeway rest area by a lovely river that could be a vacation destination
Christmas Eve in a hotel
Christmas morning in a hotel
Christmas breakfast in a hotel restaurant.   Expensive but good.
Dim Sum Christmas meal with Starr, Matthew, and Seren.  It reminded me of A Christmas Story.  I had jellyfish there.  It was chewy but tasty.

I did pick up a few bits of information related to the 500 Days Evil Plan.    I spent some time talking with a couple who lived full time in a motorhome.  I asked them what I needed to watch for when shopping for a used motorhome.  Much to my surprise they said to make sure all the lights worked.    They said finding and fixing an electical problem in a motorhome was very difficult because of how much wiring there was.  I think they meant to make sure everything electrical worked.   I asked what brand motorhome was most dependable and they said: Holiday Rambler, Winnebago, and Tifton.    Very helpful information for my project.

What progress have I made.   Quite a bit actually.  I’ve gotten rid of a lot in my office at work, done some more yard work to make it easier to sell the house, and gotten rid of more things in the house.   Slowly but surely I’m getting there.

Have a wonderful week!

WOW!  With all that has been going on during the holidays and then going back to work, I’ve just let this go.  I will have an update this weekend on the 500 Days Evil Plan as well as some closing thoughts on MNOR.

Zoom Zoom Zoom…..
It was on to the secret city today.  I left Nashville around 10 this morning.

I missed my turn and turned around in this hospital parking lot.

The next time I stopped was in a rest area.

There were great animal footprints in the concrete base

for this awesome sundial.

Finally, I arrived at my destination, Starr‘s studio/home.

I visited there for a while and then checked in to the Doubletree Hotel.

See what else I’m doing.

Today I drove from Memphis to Nashville.  Along the way I came across Casey Jones Village.

These were taken in the Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store.

The bell was in the Casey Jones Museum

and so was Engine #382.

The day started out cold. brrrr   After a while things warmed up and I got out and took a few pictures before going to visit friends.

I’ve visited this location before.

The urban decay is even more apparent now.

Someone had recently painted over most the graffiti.

See what else I’m doing.

MNOR Day 1

Leave a comment

I didn’t get a ticket for not having a tag.  The drive to Memphis turned into a two tag drive.  Same car though. I had a nice tour around Tupelo looking for Enterprise to get another ‘Tag Applied For’ tag. The first one blew off.

Here is the car I drove.  I call it Sparky.

Sparky and I spent most the day on a lost highway.

I arrived safely and I’m hanging out in the motel.
The only pictures I took were at a rest area in Mississippi I saw a collection of metal sculptures.  Here are a few pictures.

The collection was called ‘The Garden’.
