January 3 – Florida

Today was our shortest both in terms of time and mileage.  Leaving around 8:30, the normal time we tend to get on the road, we needed to find ways to make the 171 mile trip last longer as our next campground charged an additional fee for early arrivals.  Part one of our plan was reducing our speed to just under 60 MPH.  Just eight miles after getting back on I-95, as we crossed into

we noticed a Road Work sign;

interestingly the distance from the South Carolina border to Florida was exactly 112 miles.  Fortunately, most of the work had been completed and there were no slowdowns for construction or any other reason.

A little over half way through Georgia, we stopped at a rest area and then just eleven miles further on another stop for gas.  With a great deal of major tree removal along the border of the highway, there was little of interest to see.  As a result, we tried to find curious things along the roadway to keep us from getting too board.

After entering

and with only13 miles to go and an hour-plus to kill, we made another stop at the Florida Welcome Center where we had our lunch outside at a picnic table in 80-degree temperatures – the first time we seen these temperatures since last summer!

Turning off at our exit, we had to drive around two unfortunate drivers.

This evening we met up with my cousin Chip and wife Debby Burt for an early dinner
