The car is back in action! We brought it to the Mercedes Benz of Memphis at 7:30am and they took it right in, and were able to diagnose two issues with the engine. We went to breakfast while the car was being worked on, followed by a stop at a sports bar to watch the Italy vs Spain game. We had the car back and fixed by 1:30pm.
We drove to Nashville (about a 3:30hr drive), and had dinner at a bbq restaurant we found on Yelp – it was good but not as good as Memphis!
Because of our late start we decided to just drive until we got tired, which is how we ended up in Monterey, TN.
Today we encountered torrential rainstorms as well as roadside wildfires!
