Amazing day in Chattanooga. I was only 6 miles away from my stop after my long scoot yesterday. My great friend from Berry, Toby Hewitt, set some stuff up for me and made this one of the best days of my journey so far.
First as soon as I crossed the state line, Sgt. Kilgore and Ofc. Frisbee were waiting for me to escort me to the Chattanooga Choo Choo. There, Kasey Freeman from Channel 3 News was waiting to do an interview for a story. After getting a discounted rate at the Choo Choo (thank you so much), on to the next thing.
Then Pierce and I met Toby for lunch at Slicks Burgers where I had a nice, juicy burger. After lunch we went to Songbirds Guitar Museum and looked at millions of dollars worth of guitars where I strummed a guitar that Jimi Hendrix played. Hunter was a great host and showed us around. I wanted to see a 90s cover band, but had to stay in late.
After Songbirds we went up to Channel 3 News to meet Cassie, a fellow Berry grad. We watched a bit of the news taping and took a Berry alum photo.
Finally, Pierce and I went to Nightfall which is a concert series in downtown Chattanooga and moseyed around. It started raining, so it turned into an early night.
Thank you so much to Toby for everything he did to help me out today (and tomorrow)! He made this stop one of the best!
Tomorrow is an early morning, because the rain will be getting bad the later in the day we get. I’ll be scooting at 8am.
