This morning we woke up very early at 5:00 a.m. We had to pack the bus and board. We spent the entire day on the bus driving through five states: Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. We are spending the night in Knoxville, TN. The bus stopped pretty often today to let us walk around and use the rest rooms. We also had donuts on the bus while leaving Baton Rouge, stopped for breakfast at McDonald’s and had lunch at Wendy’s. While traveling we watched movies, listen to our mp3 players, visited with each other and napped. We had dinner at Famous Dave’s BBQ and then returned to the hotel to watch the LSU Tigers play. Geaux Tigers! We had a little bit of rain while traveling and when we first arrived at our hotel, but it didn’t cause any problems for us.
“PARTY!!!” seems to be our group’s battle cry.
Here’s what today’s bloggers had to say:
Julie is ALEC’s delegate:
Her favorite part of the day was the dinner at Dave’s Famous restaurant. She had a great time with her friends and tried 6 different BBQ sauces.
Her least favorite part of the day was bonking her head on the bus while unloading her suitcase, but she says she’s OK.
Today’s activities taught Julie how to get along with many different types of people. She’s really learned that it’s hard sometimes to travel in close quarters with this many people, but she can still have a lot of fun!
Julie would like to say to her loved ones back home to her family—Greetings and salutations! She’s almost in Washington DC…with LOVE! PARTY!!! We’re almost there.
Carlin is Beauregard’s delegate:
His favorite part of the day was eating at Famous Dave’s BBQ.
His least favorite part of the day was the bus ride because it was long and he didn’t get to sleep as much as he wanted.
Today’s activities taught Carlin that making travel plans to feed large groups move quickly would be beneficial in the future.
Carlin would like to say to his loved ones back home that the trip is great so far!
Zack is Jeff Davis’s delegate:

His least favorite part of the day was riding the bus.
Today’s activities taught Zack not too much.
Zack would like to say to his loved ones back home Hi and thanks JDEC!
