And we're OFF!!

Being two 21 year old girls in college, Emily and I decided we needed a break! There's no better way to get away then to hop in a car and drive across the US for a month. Neither of us have ever done much traveling, so this entire experience is new and extremely exciting for us.

We both decided to bring our bikes to ride around in different cities, so before we left we had to get a bike rack, which was already assembled, and somehow took us almost a half hour to figure out how to put on her car! We realized we had it on backwards... oops.

Finally we left Greensboro, NC at 2 or so (right after Kelley slammed the car trunk on herself) and headed to Knoxville, TN for the night.

About two hours down the road, it started raining and we noticed we couldn't see our bikes in the rear-view mirror. We STILL had the bike rack on wrong and our bikes were dragging along I-40! I don't recommend getting out in the pouring rain to fix ANYTHING. Luckily, we figured it out and got to take a nice rain shower.

We stopped in Asheville, NC to walk around and get coffee. It was absolutely beautiful!! Everything about the city blew us away.

Once we got to Knoxville, we sat outside of a Mellow Mushroom pizza place and drank a congratulatory beer.

** Thank you so, so much Dana and Trent for letting us stay at your AMAZING house! (You're lucky emily didn't steal your dog..)
