25 Days of The AMB Blog Tour- Day 10

web_photo_for-zoey-11It’s Day 10 on the AMB Blog Tour and we’re just about to wrap up Week 2 of our tour!!  After today’s travels, we can cross off 20 states on our list!!!  Time flies when you’re having fun, right?!  As we close out the week on today’s journey, we’ll be doing the North-South criss-cross for today’s portion of the itinerary.

For our First Stop of Day 10, I think we have come to a cross roads, my friends.  In fact, that’s our next State’s motto, ‘The Cross Roads of America’, due to the fact that it has more miles of Interstate Highway per square mile than any other State in the US.  For more than 200 years, this state has most certainly seen its fair share of travelers.  At one point, twelve different stagecoach lines ran through this State on the National Road, now called U.S. Interstate 40.  And the Studebaker Company based here in this State was the nation’s largest producer of horse-drawn wagons, which later became a multimillion-dollar automobile manufacturer.  But there’s one more ‘auto’-related event that definitely puts this State on the map.   I think with all the mileage we’ve been accruing on our AMB Blog Tour Road Trip, we could run laps around it, too!  If you guessed the Indy 500 as the answer, then you’re the winner!!  And by now you’ve probably guessed that we’re headed to Indiana as our First Stop of Day 10!!!  I’d love to introduce you to Sarah of the blog {no} hats in the house, representing her beautiful state of Indiana.  Please be sure to check out her license place block!

After spending some time in the ‘hittin’ the road’ in the state of Indiana, our wheels are most certainly on fire!  Maybe this is a good time to cool off and follow Old Man River down to the Second Stop of Day 10.  After all, it’s almost summer and a float down this iconic river would be a fun way to travel and see more of this country from a different perspective. This is indeed America’s largest river; literally flowing with energy that has inspired and touched so many in our great nation!!  Appropriately enough on our journey, we’re headed to the State that claims one of its cities to be the ‘Cotton Capital of the World’!!  And what other State could claim the following people as famous citizens:  Elvis, Oprah, Jim Henson, John Grisham, Tennessee Williams, Tammy Wynette, and B.B. King??  Why Mississippi, of course!  I’m pleased to introduce you to Julia of the blog Life as a Quilter.  Please do check out her lovely license plate block!
