60 minutes later: "Invader 2 calling Invader 1, I need to stop again." I think I have finally come up with a name for ???. From now on ??? will be known as “John” since he spends soooo much time there. "We can stop at the rest stop in the middle on the turnpike", John says. He knows where all the good B/R’s are too. Alright, one last stop. Everybody OUT!! Go NOW or too bad.
1st - good call on the two-way radios. We always bring hand held CB radios on our disney road trips. It was a great way to make some time fly on a long car drive.

2nd - I would have spelled it "Jon" not "John"

3rd - Waffle House would have been our 1st choice, since we ain't got none here in Jersey

Finally, great start. Keep it coming.

Gotta have the radios, phones are nice, but radios are better.

Boardwalk was fantastic. We are going to stay there again next trip. Love the shows at night.

1st - radios do help a bunch w/ the time.
2nd - We might just use both to keep you on your toes. Thanks, though.
3rd - When you have your mind set on one thing everything else seems 2nd best.
4th - Thanks

What a great picture of your children. They look so awesome in front of the BW.

BW rules!




Home Sweet Home!!!

I love it. No matter how many times I see that pictures thru the windshield as you approach WDW I still enjoy it. Sometimes cloudy, sometimes sunny, always Disney.

Great job!

Thanks, they were sooo thrilled to be there and out of the truck too.

I love this place too. I think CL has determined to stay here only. Epcot is her favorite and being walking distance (no waiting on busses) is great. You are rite, "ALWAYS DISNEY"

Not that hard to follow (thank God). I-10 east past Tallahassee to I-75 south and follow the signs. Now you have MY atlas.
Nope! No sleep for me. I do the driving cuz I am in control of this invasion. Wasn't bad at all. Once we got to our "happy place" no one was sleepy.

Thanks, CL loves those too. She took them, that may be why.

It is more expensive than home for me too, but from Tallahassee, south it is about 10-20 cents more than Disney. It was 2.98/gal at Disney and the closest we saw to that was 3.09/gal (reg. unleaded).

I love the sunrise photos!

Can't believe you actually brought along the fry-daddy. Did you really?



Those little radios are great eh?

Great start - looking forward to more
