Home in Florida!

We finally made it!  It was a long trip, but a fun time nonetheless.  This morning we were going to leave at 7:00, but it was still dark out and we had an hour of mountain roads.  So we left at 7:30 when the sky got lighter.  We saw 7 deer in our hairpin turns, and lots of fog, so I'm glad we waited to leave.  We made it thru Atlanta with no problem - just straight thru on 75!  Then after we got into Florida, we hit tons of traffic about 85-90 miles out of Clearwater.  I drove in it for 15 miles or so - bumper to bumper and stop/go.  Not much fun with idiots trying to pass and slamming on brakes, changing lanes.  Stupid people.  So we got off of 75 and angled over to Homosassa Springs and got onto the toll road.   It caused us to be about 30 minutes later than we wanted to be, but we made it without incident.  Then we got caught in a complete stoppage on the Courtney Campbell Causeway but still got to The Ranch around 6:00...just in time for our Oktoberfest dinner at the clubhouse!  Fun times and lots of hugs.

The car is unloaded and the clothes put away.  Now we're exhausted and ready to go to bed!

More later...
