The seniors departed New Haven High School at 5 A.M. this morning. They arrived in Nashville, Illinois, at 7 A.M. and had breakfast at McDonald’s. They then traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, and at 11 A.M., had lunch at the Opry Mills Shopping Center. They had time to walk around and shop for an hour or two.
Emma Eichelberger stated, "It was huge and a nice stop in the middle of all our driving!"
From there, they drove to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville for dinner at 5 P.M. After dinner, the seniors toured the university. When asked how Kate Weiser felt about touring University of Tennessee, she said, "It was so nice to finally get up and get some fresh air!"
Alison Long pronounced, "I honestly thought the bus ride was going to be a lot worse. I really enjoyed watching Jake Glaser sing along to Pitch Perfect."
Lastly, Brady Kruse stated, "Never eat any Krystal restaurant, ever. The drive went by relatively quick. It was interesting trying to figure out inventive positions to sleep. We tried fitting four boys across two seats, while we all tried laying down. It was pretty tricky. I am really looking forward to all we have planned in Washington D.C."
Day 1 finished!
