A Peak Into Our Travels and Experiences
June 2020 – TENNESSEE
The drive from Jacksonville to Memphis takes about ten hours and forty minutes, give or take a pit stop or two. For years, I’ve made the trek across the top of Florida to Tallahassee along the pine tree laden, truck route of Interstate 10. The highway is mostly straight and flat with no more variation in scenery than exits for Highway 301, three indistinguishable exits for Lake City, and then the confusing split between 10 and Interstate 75 to Tampa and Atlanta. You find yourself zoned out after a few hours and a few hills, just trying to maintain your focus as your music fades in and out of signal driving past the Okefenokee Swamp and the barren stretches that exist between small towns like Live Oak and Madison.
