Straight Road Trippin’

I think that I officially love Nashville.  So much so that I took an insane amount of pictures and think that I’m going to have to break this road trip review into a few posts.  And just a warning: going to be mainly pictures, few words!

We left last Wednesday night at about 7.  We drove for 6ish hours, and then found a fairly cheap hotel to stay in.  Crazily enough, the hotel was split down the middle by the Tennessee/Virginia state line.  We were in Tennessee!

And then, when we went to leave the hotel the next morning, we were greeted by a dead car battery.  Oops.  AAA sent the Official Wreckers of Bristol Motor Speedway to the rescue, and then we were back on the road!

We stopped by the University of Tennessee on the way to Nashville.While we were there, we stopped by Neyland stadium as well as their book store – which was huge!

We got back on the road, got to our hotel, waited for our room to be ready, rested quickly, and then got ready for the Steelers/Titans game!

The stadium was directed across from our hotel.  Awesomely convenient.

The Jumbo-trons were AWESOME.

The question I am still pondering is how I fell for a Titans fan…

That’s Jesse – he went on the journey with Trav and I.  Plus he cheers for the right team Smile

The stadium was packed, and there were a ton of Steelers fans! Sadly, they lost though Sad smile Boooo.

Stay tuned for plenty more recap pictures Smile.  Honestly, maybe the theme for my week will just be Nashville. Hope you don’t mind.

  3. I’ve never seen an NFL game!! It looks like fun though 🙂

  4. What a riot! They just put two HUGE jumbo trons up at Lambeau and you can see them all the way from the highway. Sometimes they make me laugh though, you’re AT the game, why watch it on TV? But they definitely help when you’re half blind like me and sitting up in the nosebleed seats!
