I Sure Didn’t Intend to go on a 20-Mile Ride This Morning…

…But I got lost as hell in East Nashville.  Haven’t you people ever heard of streets that meet in right angles or snap to a grid?  Also putting dead ends at the bottom of really big hills is just cruel.

And y’all got some mean-ass, bike-chasing dogs over there.  One particular cur kept up with me for almost a mile.  Though that’s less of a testament to the dog’s stamina than you might think…

    Where in Nashville are the streets on a grid? The city planners apparently could not create a street without a curve at least every mile or so.

    Did you get stuck at the bottom of the big hill on Ordway? At least there are cool houses there to ogle while cussing the Nashville planners.

    His face, not yours.

    What the heck were you doing on foot in East Nashville without an escort?

    Ha, was it the Eastland hill? That’s a bitch. It’s just past my house. I would never buy a house around that curve [fortunately, most of it is bordered by the lawn of a church], thinking that otherwise you’d constantly have car wrecks in your yard.

    And, just for the record, the historic area = very grid-like except for a block or two around 5 Points. It’s just when you venture off the beaten path that we start to look like, well, the rest of Nashville.
