I almost creamed a guy buzzing onto the freeway today. Sheesh! It's not like a 32' motorhome is hard to miss. I couldn't even swing into the other lane, because I had a car right beside me. I hope he pooped in his pants, because when I slammed on the brakes, he looked over his shoulder and saw me. He was so close he was almost sitting on my dash.

We're west of Pensacola, Florida for tonight. It's pretty noisy here, the campground is right next to the freeway. Tomorrow we'll find another campground, and then we'll stay around Kissammee until the 11th. Then we have a campground booked at Titusville for the night of the 11th & 12th, and hopefully the shuttle takes off as scheduled. It would be such a thrill to see a shuttle take off. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Cardinal Rule #1: NEVER, NEVER GO TO A ZOO ON A WEEKEND, especially if they're having a band playing loud music.

I went to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans yesterday. It was OK, but not as nice as Jacksonville Zoo in Florida. Maybe it was just too hot and too crowded...

We're still at the KOA east of Baton Rouge. We're here until Wednesday. This would be a 5 star campground if only their wifi weren't so blasted slow. They have a nice huge fenced in area for dogs to play, and Pip and Squeak appreciate that.

Tomorrow I'm going to do some more sightseeing, and go to that huge Barnes & Nobles store. That is the biggest bookstore I've seen. It's a good thing Christian isn't with, I can spend as much time in there as I want without anyone hanging over my shoulder reminding me he's ready to go :)
