Day one was a 17-hour roadtrip that took us through six states (IL, IN, OH, KY, TN and NC) from Villa Park, IL to Raleigh, NC. Highlights of the day were my first taste of Skyline Chili in southern Indiana (cinnamon in chili, really?), a sign for a Stinking Creek in Tennessee and views of roughly 50 Waffle Houses, 10 pro-Jesus billboards and one giant aluminum cross.
We didn’t go through Cincy, but we still found a Skyline in southern Indiana.
I had to get the 5-way. Verdict: Not too bad, but the cinnamon threw me off.
Crossing the Ohio River, going from Indiana to Kentucky.
In Tennessee. Sounds like a wonderful vacation spot.
