Hot Rod Power Tour Day 6 - Too Much Heat
Incline Railroad - Chattanooga, TN
Great Hot Rod at Regions Stadium in Birmingham, AL
Today we held back from the pack to go and ride the Incline Railroad in Chattanooga, TN. This cable car holds the title of steepest railroad with a incline of over 70 degrees near the top. The views are great and the ride to the top only takes a few minutes. If you like trains and you have nothing better to do this is a good way to kill an hour. With the temperature rising we were off to Birmingham, AL for day 6. At this point both Peg and myself were having trouble dealing with the heat. I just couldn't drink fast enough to keep up with the sweating. Temperatures were in the 90s and the humiture was well into the 100s.
