This is the first day of our vacation on our way to Myrtle Beach, SC. We got up and left the house at 5AM. Couldn't wait to get out of the snow and go where it is warm and sunny. We stopped at Bates Hamburgers at 8:30 AM and got 18 burgers. That is a breakfast of champs. For all that don't know what Bates burgers are you are truely missing out on the best burgers ever. Then we were back on the road. I should have started taking pics when we got into Ohio but I didn't. We got into West Virgina in the aftertoon and it was real warm. Never ran in to any rain or snow.
It was sunny all day. We made a few stops for gas and get out and walk around. Gas prices were down compared to back
home which made it nice. $3.55 a gallon.
This was one of the tunnels we went through
We made it to Hillsville at 6:30 PM. After checking in the room we went in and freshened up and went and got something to eat at Long John Silvers. Man was that great. We do not have one back home so I really enjoyed that. We went back to the room and got our showers and hit the hay about 9:00 PM. End of Day 1. Day 2 to follow.
