My Trip Home
Yesterday, I set sail for Florida. I rented a car for my journey, as the old Altima (now at 207,066 miles) is leaking oil badly. I got the cheapest thing they had, but because Avis was all sold out of "the cheapest thing they had," I got an upgrade. That vehicle was a 2006 Saturn Ion, which is way nicer than my ride. I stopped in Gulfport, MS after leaving the Crescent City. I then drove straight from Gulfport to Tallahassee, FL. I filled up with gas there and ate, then drove straight to Orlando. These are four to five hour ventures alone, respectively, but because I was in the car for a total of eleven hours yesterday, the time it actually took tends to be blurred. But, I did both of those portions of the trip without stopping. That's amazing for me considering I am the Watkins with "the tiny bladder," or so my Dad says. So I stayed with my friend Bethany in Orlando last night, and got up today and came to my folks' house. The few hours here have been good and I look forward to Thanksgiving. I hope all is well with you.
