Isn't it amazing how much can change in 100 years??? Ryan and I were taking on our trip on how it used to take my grandmother over 8 years to get down to Kentucky, while it only took us 2 hours! He said he couldn't imagine only going a top speed of 35-40 mph. I said our grandkids will say they can't beleive we only were able to go 75 mph to get somewhere!
