Getting On The Road Again
Tomorrow the missus and I begin our road trip to visit our son down in Pensacola. By the time we arrived we will have traveled in five states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Google Earth says the trip is a shade under 800 miles and will take nearly twelve driving hours. That does not take into account potty stops, gas stops, and a stop for lunch.
K and I plan to alternate every three hours of driving time, more-or-less, so one can rest while the other one drives. I will use my rest time to work on my next book, as I have been neglecting it something fierce over the last week.
Our original plan was to fly down, but our son wanted us to bring down some of the computer equipment he left behind with us. He says he doesn't trust it to the shipping companies. And since we were driving, there were a few other things he decided he wanted us to bring as well.
The only sad part is we cannot take Ace and Ginger with us this time. Our friend, who is also a professional pet sitter, will be looking in on them several times a day while we are out.
Everything is packed and there are only a few things we are waiting until the last minute to put in the truck. We plan to get up before the sun and be on the road just as the sun comes up.
In preparation for our getting on the road again in the morning, I'll leave you with this song:
