Time to get started on our epic road trip to Boston for the IFOPA Drug Forum. We left first thing in the morning to try and make it as far as we could. We made pretty good time only a few stops until we crossed into Tennessee. Our first stop in Tennessee was at the visitor’s center for a rest break. Boy was it cold, luckily I was prepared with my fleece “This is How I Roll” pants and “Go Ahead Poke Me” shirt. I had fleece pants to wear for all the super cold days on the trip. It didn’t get above freezing until we were in Boston. Awesome people working at this center, they blocked off part of the women’s restroom since they don’t have a family restroom there.
We decided that we would stop in Memphis for the yummy BBQ we had in June on our way through. Blues City Cafe is a great place for Memphis BBQ, Nick and I love the smothered cheese fries with pulled pork appetizer.. It is more than enough for two people to share. The parking down by Beale street can be a bit of a pain, but luckily that night we found a valet right off of Beale Street in a private parking lot.
Then we traveled on to Nashville to find a room, we finally found a handicapped room at the La Quinta in Lebanon, Tennessee. The night clerk was horrible, but the day time manager we talked with the next day Sara was awesome. We would totally stay here again but the night clerks need to step it up End of the Day!
