Folks hit the road for holiday travel

Drivers hitting the road for Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many people are jumping in their cars for holiday travel.

Nicole Butler went by Love's gas station in west Bibb to talk with travelers about the long road to their Thanksgiving meals. 

People from all across the country are hitting the road for Thanksgiving.

"I'm coming from West Virginia and headed to Florida, Tampa," Sheldon Neil said.

He added that traffic wasn't the only trouble they met on the ride down south.

"10 to 11 hours, probably a little bit longer because we ran into a little bit of trouble where somebody got lost and ended up going north instead of south, so we had to wait for them, go give them gas they ran out of gas, and then they got lost again, so they went north once again," he mentioned.

On another note, on Dwayne Rahmig's way to visit his mother in Alabama, he says his drive has been smooth. 

He says Thanksgiving can't come soon enough.

"The food! It's just one of those times you can eat whatever you want whenever you want, and you don't really worry about it too much," Rahmig said about the holiday. 

Being an Army veteran, he says he has so much to be thankful for.

"I'm just thankful that the Lord allowed us to see another Thanksgiving, and for all of those people who are either overseas or here, I just want to say have a happy Thanksgiving and hopefully you'll be home soon with your families soon," Rahmig said. 

Love's gas station workers say with the huge increase with people on the roads, they have been preparing for the holiday season for the past two weeks.
