Mile 587 Post 13

leave a comment

Next to last leg of the homestretch, somewhere in a VERY rainy Kentucky.

Says Kristin:

Although I was asleep when it happened, today’s 587 was just when we left Tennessee and went into Kentucky. What I do remember though is my brother whining “noooooooooo noooooo I want to go baaaaaack”, and he made a good point. Yesterday and the day before, we spent the night at Dyer Observetory at Vanderbilt University. Yeah, IN the observatory. So that was quite an experience. Then my dad’s friend, Rocky Alvey, (as Colin would say, the best guy in the world) showed us around the observatory. His wife, who is a bigshot in the Tennesee capitol building, got us an amazing tour guide who gave me the most interesting tour any of us have ever had. Then we went back to the observatory and grilled some steaks, and we hung out with their kids, who are all at least two and a half years older than me. It was fun, and we all had a great time.
