North, South, North, South, North, South

Our first day took us to (Lavale) Cumberland, Maryland to the Comfort Inn. The room was clean, huge with 2 Queens, we would prefer a king but this was the deal. Customer service was amazing, check in was a breeze, and when the one dryer was not heating up, they allowed us to use the housekeeping dryer. In addition, we had a wine bar...

We stopped at Ruby Tuesday for lunch, the salad bar was so fresh and the appetizers were good, especially the meatballs and the pickled zucchini…

Our next day of driving took us through the hills of West Virginia, beautiful sunny day of travel. We stopped in Nitro, West Virginia at the Mardi Gras Casino Resort. Both the hotel and casino are totally nonsmoking which is perfect for us. The room is spacious with a comfortable king bed. Just don’t drink the Fiji water or open the fridge, these both have exuberant charges. Staff is very accommodating and the breakfast that is included is spectacular, freshly made eggs any style, omelets, and real bacon.

More hills through Kentucky and Tennessee with loads of colors in the trees for our next days drive...

Ending in Clinton, Tennessee. Our hotel was a Baymont, the style was totally different from our last Baymont. It was a small suite with a couch, microwave, fridge and a king size bed. Front desk was great but the housekeeping was less than good, dirty bathroom floor, pillows had yellowing cases on a few of them and bed looked slept in, then found a candy in bed and not a mint under the pillow, mold and dirty bathtub. 

While in this area we had to try Krystals, they are supposed to be just like White Castles and they are, the only difference is they put mustard on the sliders. A little different but they were good, soft warm steamed buns, onions, pickle and very little meat.

We have now reached our last event, except for the Grands next week, but we will have a week off in between to do some exploring and relaxing. This event started off rough but ended on a really nice note, we again surpassed our goal and our helpers were some really fun and hard working Senior Orchestra members.

While working this event, we stayed at LaQuinta in Douglasville, Georgia. The hotel was great, it was a huge room with a king bed, big desk with a comfortable chair, fridge, microwave and a great shower. We notice whenever we book with Hotels.com we usually end up in a handicap room, this was one of those times and we did not mind it at all. Wide spaces and the shower had bars everywhere so when we came in from our 20 hours shift we had something to keep us from falling in the shower.

We had been seeing Zaxby’s all over the area, so of course we had to give it a taste and we were NOT impressed. We had Cajun Club Sandwich, Southern TLC, French Fries, Fried White Cheddar Bites, Tater Chips. The chips had a nice seasoning to them and were fried perfectly but the rest of the sandwiches, fries, and cheddar thingys were blah. We will not be returning.

This part of our journey is almost over, but instead of dwelling on this good thing coming to an end, we are just going to take it day by day and enjoy our vacation week.
