March 17: Going home to St. Louis

6:45 AM EDT, Airbnb
A confused rooster crows despite the sky still being dark out and the sun nowhere close to rising. I lie awake for an hour in anticipation of driving home for eight hours today. Jaret wakes up around eight and we begin picking up our things to depart.

10:07 AM EDT, Airbnb
We get on the road to head towards Nashville for lunch.

12:25 PM CDT, Mission BBQ
Somewhere along the road, the time changed back to what we are used to. We arrive at Mission BBQ, situated in a Nashville mall adjacent to the Grand Ole Opry. I get the smoked salmon, mac and cheese, and cornbread.

We get back on the road to head directly to St. Louis.

5:53 PM CDT, St. Louis
We arrive home just in time for dinner! We miss our cat and roommate a lot and we’re glad to be back. We can’t compare anything in St. Louis to the Great Smoky Mountains, but we took the Smokies with us in our hearts.
