Tuesday 16th September. Pleasant Shade, Tennessee USA
Burnt out! I was exhausted by the time I got to Pleasant Shade. There's only three weeks left before I have to be out of the US, and I just wasn't in any shape to keep going at this pace. There's so many people I want to visit between now and then but I needed to stop for a while and catch my breath. Also, there's a bit of behind the scenes 'housekeeping' that I haven't had a chance to sort out, not the least of which is to organize hosts for the next few weeks, and get my dang *dang is Southern for damn* messageboard up and running again. My hosts Glenn and Shirley were kind enough to let me hide out here on their 150 acre property for as long as I need. I guess I'll probably head north on the weekend, if I've come back to life by then!
My route to New England will be as follows: Kentucky, Cincinnatti, Columbus, Cleveland, Pittsburg, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, New York, Southbury, Boston, Portland, Rockport...then quickly across the border to CANADA!
