Well not with the price of airline tickets! So, our adventure began with 8 of us, 2 cars, OK OK 1 van and 1 car, a cargo carrier and we were off to Walt Disney World.
Oh, and filling up 2 cars across the country, my Credit Card company called me to make sure my card hadn't been stolen! I forgot to call them and tell them I would be traveling. I guess gas and 3 hotel rooms red flags the account!!
Texas is BIG, it takes 9 hours to get from where we live to the state line! Add stopping at Braums in Dallas for Dinner and it was Dark thirty before we got to Louisiana!
We had left Lubbock at 12:30, just after noon. By about 1:30 AM the drivers were getting tired. Not sleepy, but tired of being in the car, sitting. So, we pulled off in Opelousa, LA and I found 3 rooms in a hotel. Since it was soooo late I got a discount :-) We all napped until 7:30 am and hit the road with full tummies.
I also wanted the newbies who had not made this trip to see the Mississippi River in the dayligt, the Mobile Tunnel, Mobile Bay, Pensacola Bay and such during the day. Oh, and the USS Alabama. The sights were too good to go through at night.
Everyone thought the tunnel was really cool! Then we came out and there was the USS Alabama, WOW! And the bay is beautiful. Since Lubbock hadn't seen any rain since last October when we left, seeing all that water was a magnificent sight! Such beauty.
Well, picture upload is giving me a hassle. So, I will end this blog and continue trip details with another blog. There will be many blogs about this trip adventure! We spent a week at WDW and then made a mad dash home driving straight through because we had to get home for open house for school!
Did you ever take a great road adventure? Aren't they great? I think they are. The kids learn a lot :-)
More to come,
