We sure have had one lovely trip. This shows you one of the roads we were on. The mohawk trail isn't in it. Got to Hendersonville h[---] might where Arthus is and stayed last nite at Statesville Ga. [think] we are at Gainesville Florida. Tomorrow we go to Okala to visit a friend then will get to St. Pete by noon as it is only about 150 miles from here. We went about 240 miles today. Ethel says all you have to do is hold the wheel the car goes itself. We had 2 days of ic raods way into Washington. It was awful some times going only 15+20 miles an hr. Saw number of accidents but we got this without putting on chains at all. They didn't help any if they had them on. E has hard cold but hope it will leave quickly. Love E + J
