This trip to Florida is different

(For Sat. AM, filing this early, might not have the net in the AM)

We have stopped for the night at “The Oaks at Point south”.  This is near Yemassee and the name can be pronounced several ways, if you know us southerners.Winking smile We thought it was  Yee-MASS-ee, but the locals pronounce it YEM-es–ee.

Today was different than planned. Sherry said the Hummer drove great but was too dark (windows tinted).  So she opted to drive marks 4dr, 4wheel drive truck (but only if he would clean it out).

He was us before us this morning cleaning it and taking it to have the wheels balanced for his mama.

That is Sherry in front of me in the white truck.

After supper we went for a walk, This is MJ leading the pack.

We will depart in the morning after stopping by the local Waffle House.

All is going well and if things go as planned we will see Mark’s house he is selling before tomorrow evening.

Thanks for stopping by.

PS: The trip went well, but I was disappointed, I did not see one antique vehicle….

Glad you guys got there safe and sound. I'm with Sherry, I think I would have felt more comfortable driving the truck over a Hummer with tinted windows. Now on to part two of the adventure tomorrow :)

I'm glad you all made it safely driving individually. Those are some nice cars - a hummer!!!

And I thought he just bought the house?

Wish Sherry could come down here to convince John to clean his truck out. It is truly a trash pile.

Crazy how that Hummer looks so small up against your motor home!
Sounds like you're all enjoying this part of the journey. 'Hope to hear next time (that) you've arrived in similarly good spirits!

I cannot believe that caravan headed
to Florida. Glad you made it that far. I keep forgetting that MJ
is making all these long trips.
I glad Mark cleaned his truck out.
Hope the rest of the trip is safe
and good.
