Day 19 - Driving, driving, driving, and BBQ (yes, once again!)

We checked out of our hotel after our first hot breakfast of our trip (made-to-order omelettes!) and were off in search of an Alabama cache. The first cache we DNFed and since I only had two AL caches on our GPSr, I hoped we'd find the second. We got to the second and Jenn made the find. Phew!

As we've been driving through the midwest and south, we've notice fireworks stands, stores, and warehouses. This one claims to be the world's largest fireworks store. It was a huge building so I can only imagine how many fireworks were inside. And these stores are open year round!

We were then off to Georgia, where we finally got to eat at a Chick-Fil-A for the first time this trip. We wish they had them in the Bay Area! We zipped through Georgia, and got to South Carolina. Stopped only to grab a cache, then off to North Carolina, where we had BBQ for dinner. Yep, you must know by now we love BBQ. So now we've had KC BBQ, Memphis BBQ, and North Carolina BBQ. And yes, we've also had Texas BBQ, just not on this trip. The restaurant we ate ate had a stage and there was some great entertainment tonight, a bluegrass band and cloggers. Definitely brought some authenticity to the area.

Welcome to Georgia!
Welcome to South Carolina!

Driving to North Carolina

Pulled pork, coleslaw, sweet potato fries, hush puppies and a bottle of cherry wine!

Tomorrow, Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

No Chik-Fil-A in the Bay? There's ones in Sac. Weird.
