pjlenihan & Ken Nicks travel plans to TX

We plan to leave Jonesville, NC Friday morning 5-18 and take mostly interstates.
Passing thru Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, then I-20 west. We are undecided on our overnight stop for Friday night sorta depends on when our sore backs say enough already or when we have been on the road abt 10 hours. I tend to need a stretch/ pee break abt every 2 hours. Getting old is not for sissies. Message us if you'll be using that route so we can be on the look out for other British V-8 travelers. my cell is three 3six 462-one14seven.
