After my panic attack over the empty gas tank debacle; I checked the gas gauge every few minutes on Tuesday. I would be listening to CODE by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs and then I would feel the panic creep back in.
Birmingham to Savannah is about a six hour drive but it took longer because there was a huge traffic jam in Atlanta. A stretcher was being pulled to a person in a pickup truck and the other car, which was facing against traffic, looked liked an accordion. The accident had been moved to the left side of the road but rubberneckers were drastically slowing traffic.
I also stopped to get Krystal Burgers for lunch. If you have never heard of Krystal Burgers they are kind of like White Castle Burgers but with more grease.
Other than that it was a pretty boring drive. Interstate driving is really great for listening to books. I set my cruise control and pressed play. The only thing to look at along this drive are trees and other cars.
However, my body felt completely different. By the time I got to my room in Savannah I could barely move; my body was sore and I was extremely sleepy. I crashed on the bed and slept for five hours! It was FRACKING AWESOME. I really needed that nap.
By the time I woke up it was too late to do anything so I just went back to bed. Yep, I spent my first night in beautiful Savannah, Georgia asleep in bed.
