That's right, first long road trip more than 4 hours. I'm leaving Tuesday and will be coming back Saturday.
There WILL be a lot of pictures.

I saw some crazy stuff, Downtown Atlanta was probably the worst though. And I thought we had some pretty amazing failures in Detroit.

Anyway, I got back this morning. We drove pretty much straight through, only stopping for food one time. (Waffle House is amazing). GTP managed 27.8 mpg with three people and loaded with all our stuff.

And pics as promised. (Quality is kinda bad as I forgot my camera and just used my phone)

I got a pretty sweet parking spot at the hotel, no door dings for this guy.

Great photos. I think I might recognise some of those locations... You went down to the Keys?

Great photos! Thanks for posting. Hope you didn't get any traffic citations while in FL. My parents use to go down every winter in the late 60's. My dad would get at least one citation every time they went down. FL and MO were the only states he ever go cited in - BC

No tickets, but there were a lot of police in Georgia and Florida, my radar detector really works well. It was going off before we could actually see the patrol cars. Although we didn't really speed (no more than 75mph) because I wanted to see just how many MPG's I could get out of the car. That and after all it was a vacation, no need to rush :)
