BDAA - Stop #12

GAINESVILLE, FL

Drive from Georgia to Florida was rainy and overcast with lots of construction but it was pretty. Just as I was pulling into Gainesville, the rain got so bad I couldn't see right in front of me and it was a bit scary. Never fear folks - I survived and I am still kicking and screaming.




Did someone order some rocks with their lichens?

I have never been so thankful for windshields - that was one cute butterfly.

This car slid off the freeway and into this pond - glad it wasn't the beetle bug.




I had fun playing with these kids tonight.

I wore my Florida T-shirt just for the Gators in Gainesville. I planned to wear my LSU T-shirt tomorrow so I would have it on when I rolled into Baton Rouge. However Lindsey reminded me that I might not want to have that shirt on in the morning when I gas up in Gainesville and take off for Louisiana. I hadn't thought of that!

Larry - I said hi to Urban for ya. He said he didn't know who you were.

Gas Money:
  • $35.82 ($3.45/gallon) - Evans, GA
  • Running Total: $537.18
Odometer: 4519.2 (FL)

Well, you missed the big bash! We took lots of pictures though. Hope this little road trip is worth the high cost of gas you are paying! HOLY COW!!!
