Letter #30: Great Tennessee Ending

October 30, 2010

Dear Lee University and Covenant College,

You brought my Tennessee trip to a great end. I had no idea your state was so beautiful, and I would highly recommend an autumn Tennessee trip to anyone. My time spent with you, Lee, was very limited. Interviewees came in droves, therefore, I didn’t get to explore at all. Highlight: hanging out with these guys and Ward Wiebe! Somehow setting me up on a date became a topic of conversation, and I confessed my crush on Cam Newton to Ward! Funny memories from you!

Covenant, who knew you were gorgeous, on top of a mountain and in Georgia?! As I navigated our way up the mountain, I literally watched the GPS on my phone change from Tennessee state lines into Georgia. I had absolutely no idea. Of course I had to find a way to get out and document me being in two places at once!

Not that I wouldn’t be able to do this at any state line, but I literally slept in one state and worked in another and simply drove up a mountain to cross the state line (plus these states are WAY prettier than the Oklahoma/Texas state line!). I had no idea I would see Georgia on this journey!

You are a very interesting school. You sit on top of a mountain and overlook a valley. You have one of the most gorgeous views I’ve ever seen (no documentation: Ward and I missed the sunset by 45 seconds). While you are beautiful, you are also very isolated. You have a unique dynamic to you, but I liked it. I’m not sure if you know, but you have one of the neatest people in the world in your midst. She’s a great tour guide of campus, but her heart is her true selling point. Thanks for letting me spend time with her….AND, she got me a shirt to add to my traveling challenge. This puts me at 3 for 5 for the week!

We left Tennessee at 5:30 in the morning because we had a LONG haul in front of us. Our drive did allow us to stop in Nashville for a quick breakfast with Travis Hague (old K-West guy). Ward insisted upon me seeing the Frothy Monkey while we were there, and it did not disappoint.

Thanks for a great end to the trip! You put me back in Branson at 6 o’clock last night, and I’m on the road to Kansas for the week currently! Excited and thankful the opportunity to live this life!

On the road again,

Fan of Tennessee
