Labor Day


Crossed into Tennessee at 10:55AM, 650 miles into my trek.

Worth mentioning is that on this day -- tonight at around 9PM actually -- one year ago, Jayne went into labor. She would deliver Inara the following morning.

Very pretty country up here.

Enjoy your blog...very much. But ...enough is enough..enjoy your trip... have your pity party and then get back and pull yourself together.. dust yourself off ... and get on with life. Today is a gift and tomorrow is promised to no one. (No I am not a religous fanatic..it is factual information)

Ah the east coast, with your cute little states. If I were to drive 650 miles north from my home, I would not be into a third, almost fourth state, I'd still be in California.

We're missing you back in middle of nowhere Florida. I hope you have an amazing journey :)

Mourning a loss isn't living in the past. It's respecting what could have been and was, and is no more.
Follow your own timeline, Chez. Your friends will be around to help you see a new future. There is so very, very much to be thankful for.

Tenn. is indeed beautiful country. Almost as pretty as Kentucky. :-P

I always wonder, where was I at this time last year? Your life has taken a such a sudden, dramatic shift. It must be so surreal/bizzare/painful/
heartbreaking to think about this time last year. Get through this how you see fit, and take as much time as you need. I think you're doing an amazing thing with this journey...connecting with old friends, meeting new ones. I look forward to reading all your posts about your travels.

My favorite part of the state. Too bad you aren't driving through my end of the state, though. I'd have fed you dinner :)

My heart aches for you.

i fail to see how chez remembering the day his daughter was born is evidence that he's stuck in the past.... or how feeling sad because he is no longer with her, but a year later, constitutes a "pity party".

go the fuck back to vulcan.

very envious of your journey through Tennessee - I'm originally from SE TN and I have many relatives there...miss those mountains something fierce, especially in the fall...

Have a safe journey...

Happy birthday to Inara, Chez.
