Technology has played a huge part on my trip to the South. The biggest part was Navigon for the iPhone. This trip wouldn't have been as enjoyable and easy without it thus far. It had allowed me to get everywhere and has yet to lead me astray. The iPhone has also played an important part by providing me with the ability to blog on the spot, book hotel rooms, and find places to eat very quickly. I couldn't imagine a trip without a device like this. On another note my Asus Netbook has been a more than ample replacement for my HP laptop and has even helped me kill some time with netflix despite overall poor wifi connections down here.

Knoxville TN Worlds Fair Park
This is a picture of the Sunsphere at night. The ironic part about this picture is that this would not have been able to be posted in the same way without one if the inventions from the fair... the touch screen.
After a bit of a stint all day on the edge network, I entered Tennessee and was immediately greeted with full bars on a 3G network. I was starting to get worried. I then proceeded to tether my netbook to my iPhone and book a room in Knoxville for the night!
And so it begins, my week long journey to Nashville TN and back. I started this morning around 8:30 and don't plan on being back until somtime Thursday night or Friday. My first stop is to see an old friend named Woody in Dublin WV bit that's about 3.5 hours away.
