road tripping pt 1

i am in the midst of driving to south bend indiana for a wedding, sleeping in my eno hammock along the way.  i stayed in smokey mountains np the first evening, and caught sunrise/sunset from clingmans dome.  i headed for southern illinois the second night, and after a surprise ferry ride across the ohio river, ended up at a place called garden of the gods, where i was accosted by a raccoon while sleeping in my hammock.  i made it to chicago to pick up sloane, and finally to our hotel in south bend for a well deserved shower.  the return trip is still up in the air...  enjoy the gallery.

packed and ready to go
