0130: After hours of long talks about life and roadtrip plans, we decide it may be best to turn in for the night. We have to wake up at 0500!
0400: Excitedly, Kristen wakes up, long before she needed to.
0500: Kristen attempts to wake Grant up, as he requested the night before, so we could be on the road by 6 or 7. Kristen failed.
0600: Grant is still in bed…
0630: Kristen gets bored and decides to pack and take care of some last minute things.. eat …and wait.
0830: Grant finally decides he feels like joining the party…. HOORAY!
0915: After the final cram of “needed” items into every empty crevice remaining in the jeep, we took one last look at each other before slowly rolling out of the driveway to begin our adventure across country. Smooth travel due north gave us some time to test out the video and sound. Props to all of you who vlog and blog. Its difficult figuring all of this out!
After a couple of fuel stops, dog walk stops and picnic stops, we made it to Grant’s sister’s house in Panama City around 1630. Devlin got an opportunity to run and play in the yard. We got the opportunity to have dinner with family!
2200: Checked into a Red Roof Inn, where smoking rooms still exist! Devlin was up sneezing all night, and we are pretty sure he got an ear infection. So, we don’t recommend that! All of the hotels in the area were booked up, so we had to take what we could get. Driving further was not an option at this point. Turns out Spring Break coincides with our road trip!
