1.--Mapquest LIES!! 15 hours is really 18.5
2.--When devising your own detour through Birmingham, it helps to have the map right-side up; thereby avoiding an hour of wasted time before you realize that the left you made was really supposed to be a right!
3.--A Mazda Miata looks like a tiny bug to a semi driving 80 miles an hour.
4.--Never drink two cups of coffee and one bottle of water right before you drive through deserted highways with no gas stations in sight!
5.--You know you've hit the South when the continental breakfast served at the hotel has biscuits and gravy. yummy! I haven't had that in almost ten years.
6.--Memphis really needs some road improvements!
7.--Home never looked as good as it does after driving until midnight!
