Update From The Road

(I tried posting this morning but lost connection just outside of Macon. We arrive safe and sound to a big party going on so this is the first chance I’ve had to get the rest of the post up.)

We left a few minutes early this morning. However, when the EX (FAPOS for those of you that know and love him) dropped off the kids last night he provided an alternate route for us to take rather than driving all the way on interstate highways. SOOOOO, we started off taking canopy roads and two-lane highways which take us through small towns where the goats are tied to stakes in fronts yards right next to the ever-present plastic fake geese.

So far we’ve only taken two wrong turns.

Here we are passing through Macon. There are lots of homeless people roaming the street. This one looks like he’s had a long morning already and it was only 11:00 a.m. EST.

Here’s Spawnette surfing the web while on the road; isn’t she cute?

We’re back on a main highway headed toward Interstate 20 which we will take the rest of the way into Charlotte.

Hope you guys are having as exciting a day as we are!




p.s. Sampson….you’re watermelon is not yet ready to be taken off the vine; we’ll check it when we get there….see you soon!

I've heard of people "taking a hiatus" from blogging for vacation. I've heard of having pre-done posts or guest posters. But to actually Blog while traveling - that, my friend, is committment. Or obsession. Not sure.

I have an 'AirCard' for my laptop. I really pissed off SWMBO when I took my laptop on her shopping trip, Saturday. I made HER drive and I blogged the whole time. She was NOT a happy camper. On the bright side, i never once dropped my connection. Through 60 miles of driving, round trip. Verizon Card. Cool.

I was late to the party, so I'll take this opportunity to wish you a great vacation. Can't wait to read all about it.

AHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Downtown Macon!! I am from Macon!!! How exciting! Those homeless people get kicked out of the homeless shelter pretty early in the morning.

I lived on Riverside Drive, which is the parallel road to I-75 when heading North.

Macon is fine for growing up, but it is too small of a place with too little progressive movement for me!

Random Chick said...

Woot! You're on the road again...don't ever listen to the EX for directions. I mean, seriously!!!

Practically Joe said...

So when you're out of the car and onto the sidewalks do you then go to a hand-held device to continue blogging?

Spawnette it too cute! Mine would be glaring at me through their hair, music blaring, saying 'You blog this and you die'

Or something...

Have fun!

I just love driving on roads like your first picture. I do it a lot when I go home to Savannah.
