The much anticipated road trip to the west has begun. Since I live in South Florida, I must first drive north before driving west. It is going to be one of these uneventful tedious drives first on I-95, then on I-10. I am going to try and make it interesting, at least the segment going north.
After I spend a night at the Walmart in Titusville @diztraveler joined me for a quick excursion on the Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, in Merritt Island. We also visited the manatee viewing area at the Haulover Canal, although the manatees where no show. I did see a pelican. After that we said “until next time” and I continued north.
A little over an hour later I arrived at Jacksonville, and meet up with Randall and his family and he did an excellent detailing job on both Minitini the Trailer, and the Colorado. They both needed one badly.
Driving to the West
As the day started coming to an end I turned onto I-10 and truly started driving to the west, into the sunset. After a long break at the rest area located in the Osceola National Forest, I continued pushing west, into the dark night. As fatigue started setting in I decided to spend the night at the Walmart parking lot in Tallahassee, Florida capital.
In the morning I continued west, almost non stop until I reached my destination, the Escapees Rainbow Plantation in Summerdale, Alabama.
