Travel Days - Vonore, Tennessee to Richton, Mississippi

Wednesday and Thursday were travel days. We only traveled about 470 miles over the two days so we obviously did not get in a hurry. In fact, I text Bro. Scott Morris Thursday morning and told him I was only about 210 miles from him and if I could do 70 miles a day, I should be there by Sunday morning.

We left East Tennessee Luxury Coach some time mid-morning and headed south west. Here we are as we prepare to pull out.

It was a beautiful day to travel and once we cleared Chattanooga, the traffic thinned out quite nicely. After all of the activity of the previous few days, I knew I would not drive far but I did want to go at least half way. I made it about 260 miles.

We needed to empty our holding tanks before getting to Richton and the Flying J at McCalla, Alabama was our last chance to do it. We decided to pull in there and call it a day. After snagging a spot among the trucks (The RV spots at that Flying J are always filled with trucks) we settled in and all took a nice afternoon nap!

I mentioned in yesterday's blog that Kelly Jo and I worked most of the evening on our travel visas to Nigeria. The kept us up late and then I could not sleep. I did sleep some in the early morning hours but I was awake shortly after 6:00 again.

I let the girls rest while I had my devotions and worked on the blog. We cranked up the BoggsMobile, emptied the holding tanks and we were soon on our way. We stopped at Dirt Cheap in Meridian after about 120 miles so the girls could get in a few minutes of retail therapy.

When they were finished we pulled over to Walmart so Kelly Jo and I could get our photos for the visas taken. Office Depot was across the parking lot and we went there next to Fedex the whole package to the Nigerian Embassy. We should have the visas in less than three weeks. Then we can finalize our reservations.

Once that was completed we finished the trip to Richton, arriving about 4:00 PM. It is great to be back home in Richton and we enjoyed some time and a great meal with our friends. We love Bro. Scott and his precious family.

Just about bed time, Bro. Jimmie Radcliffe pulled in and it was super great to see him. Once he was half way parked we said good night and got to bed just after midnight.

That puts two travel days in the books.The next two days will be spent preparing to get the tent up and getting ready for City Reach Richton. It feels good to be back in the swing of things!

Thanks for stopping in today.
