49 States by car countdown: T minus 7 days.

Wednesday, May 31th with seven days until planed departure date I had an open house giveaway yesterday to get rid of everything that wasn't going into storage. All I got left now to move into storages things that I'll be utilizing till my departure. Couple of large items that some people are going to come pick up.

The first leg is going to be southeastern bound:

  • Indy-to-Iuka, Illinois,
  • Illinois-to-Missouri (Poplar Bluff) where I pick up Troy,
  • Poplar Bluff-round trip to St. Louis, Missouri for Littrell family dinner up there.
  • Then to Clinton & Emerson, Arkansas.
  • From Arkansas to Natchez, Mississippi to drive the Natchez Trace to Nashville.

That’s the plan, but its all tentative.


T minus: a sequence of backward counting to indicate the time remaining before an event is scheduled to occur. NASA commonly employs the term "T-minus" during the preparation for and anticipation of a rocket launch, and even "E-minus" for events that involve spacecraft that are already in space, where the "T" could stand for "Test" or "Time", and the "E" stands for "Encounter", as with a comet or some other space object. Other events for which countdowns are commonly used include the detonation of an explosive, the start of a race, the start of the New Year, or any anxiously anticipated event. An early use of a countdown once signaled the start of a Cambridge University rowing race. One of the first known associations with rockets was in the 1929 German science fiction movie Frau im Mond (English: Woman in the Moon) written by Thea von Harbou and directed by Fritz Lang in an attempt to increase the drama of the launch sequence of the story's lunar-bound rocket.[wikapedia)
