Day 43- Officially Starting Our Hiatus

Day 43- Officially Starting Our Hiatus

No Sweat,

We slept great and stayed safe all night in the middle of Knoxville. Up at 8 o'clock we headed down Martin Luther King Jr St. We tried not to rubber neck as we saw 4 or 5 police cars around a truck at an ATM. As we passed one of the officers shouted at us, "what does your sign say." Pleasantly suprised we walked toward him and told him about our adventure. He told us we were headed into a really really rough area and that we should take the previously spoke of East Magnolia. We were suprised because 1) we had been warned about Magnolia and 2) we had slept only a few blocks from some serious ghetto. The officer said we might deal with some bums and hookers, but that they were harmless and that our pepper spray would do the trick if need be. We made our way down Magnolia with no issues and eventually to our bus stop.

We walked a bit passed to kill an hour or so at a Starbucks. We met a very nice lady in a wheel chair who was happy to be out of the house and was very happy to talk to us. Eventually it came time to head to the bus and officially start our hiatus.

The plan now is to put our journey on hold until the 20th. We will spend a few days in Nashville once we get off the bus. We will then fly home to my best friends wedding. Finally we will fly back into Nashville and bus back into Knoxville to continue our journey without disrupting our continous line across America. We will be sure to update you on some of the happenings in Nashville and at the Wedding. There was just no way we would be able to miss this wonderful coming together of Ryan and Candace. We will continue our walk (and budget) as soon as get back into Knoxville on the 20th.

See you on the flip side,

Levi
