Hey there Campers;
Talk about a hot day in GA. It is sizzling. Traffic was crazy as we were coming into Atlanta. A big rig had a nasty accident. The truck was in parts. We prayed the driver was going to be ok. Rolling into Atlanta is always an experience. The traffic is getting to be just as bad as LA/SF. We inched our way through. The skyline is very beautiful and the intricacy of the building has always been a wonder. It was interesting to see the big company names. Of course GA is big on the colleges. There are over 32 colleges just in Atlanta. These schools represent 80,494 or more students (full-time and part-time), a combined student body equivalent to 79,524 full-time students, and a reported 21,793 dorm rooms. GA State is the biggest in ATL. Go Panthers.!! We rolled into Florida early evening at stated at our Walmart hotel in Lake City.
On Sabbath, we got up and started rolling again. Our destination is Orlando. It was amazing to see the hurricane/tornado alarm. That is something we do not see in Cally. We got to the Outdoor Resort where we will stay for our Disney adventure. We drove to Trent & Kelly Schwartz where Sharelle & Alex was staying. The girls were very happy to see their parents. Yep partners, when you are just as happy to see their parents you know you have had an adventure. Would I take them on another trip?? You betcha. Did I put my 5,4,3,2,1 into play? You betcha. The most enjoyable time was seeing them learning about history and just being with them.
OK!!! This Florida Turnpike is just unreal. $.50 here, $1.75 there. So we are paying to use the highway? They should not even talk about our bridge fees. Soooo... We found out we could purchase a SUNPASS. (Think Fastrack) We did at the Publix. (Think Safeway.) Well FL. Get into the 21st Century. You say go online to activate. NOT. It would not let you finish putting in the info to activate. I tried, Alex tried and Trent tried and he lives here. Ok try again in the morning. We hit all those tolls on the way back to the Hilton4. Bummer
While at Trent & Kelly’s it thundered and stormed like crazy so the kids could not go into the pool. Even the dogs wouldn’t go outside. Florida rain storms are no joke.
Well Campers, until next time.
Lo & Bren
