Road Trip to Atlanta

I haven’t seen my best friend Bree since the winter holidays, so I decided to drive up to Atlanta, Georgia to see her one last time before I leave. Yes, I drove, alone, in 1 day. 800ish miles on I-20 east, Piece o' cake ;)

I went from Austin to DFW on my last normal day of work at the Red Cross on Thursday April 30, 2009. Then I left Arlington at 4:30am and arrived in Atlanta around 9:30pmCT. On the way there I stopped at Lake Bistineau State Park in Louisiana and Bienville National Forest, Mississippi. They all have these amazing things called trees and green plants that are cause by a strange substance we don’t get very often in Texas called rain. Evidently when you get enough of this ‘rain’ it collects in ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers which are quite beautiful.

The drive wasn’t nearly as painful as I thought it would be, though I did track my sleepiness and pain levels every 30 minutes. I’m going to make a chart to help better plan when I need to stop on the way back to DFW.

You made me laugh, and I hope you're having a great time. I can tell you it is most certainly not the same at the ARC without you.
