The first day of our cross-country trek took us to Knoxville, TN. While the drive was long, it went by smoothly and we had some fun along the way. Oliver was an absolute legend, just straight sleeping in the back seat for 5 straight hours.
The day ended in a fantastic way, at a secluded BBQ joint in a rural area outside of town. My friend Kristen recommended Sweet P's, and the recommendation was a strong one. We had fun sitting outside, devouring amazing food, and sipping a cold beer. We went with a full sampler platter of pulled pork, brisket, ribs, slaw, mac and cheese, and potato salad... Plus a full burrito. It was absolutely delicious. Oh wait, there was also a bacon chocolate chip cookie; can't forget that necessity.
On to day 2 today, with a short trip to Nashville where we will spend a few days. Country music, here we come!
