Yeah! Vero! I love Vero and I can't wait to see your room and your view.

I am very happy that James did not have to sleep on the floor in a sleeping bag. Score.

So, where did you stop? Brunswick, Georgia? How long did it take to drive there. Inquiring minds want to know (in case I do ever drive).

Enjoyed the Vero update! Why was the Defibrillator circled by the beach, on the map? Looking forward to pictures of the interior of the unit.

Glad you have arrived at Vero. Looking forward to seeing the room and the view.

Looks like you won't have to stumble very far for toasted marshmallows, if you are so inclined.

Just doesn't taste quite as good as a stolen Hardee's breakfast, I agree.

Sometimes our kids prefer that arrangement. Usually when one of them starts getting kicked or having the covers stolen in the shared bed.

Interesting. I hadn't heard that before. Might have to try avoiding the online checkin next time.

It's been a long drive. Don't over-tax yourself.

We used the same trick. My daughter still has "Fluffy" to show for it.

Yay! You have finally arrived! James looks so cute - all excited to move in to the new digs! :goodvibe: I am wondering if perhaps the black item in the left hand corner of said pic is perchance Judy's purse???? That would raise it to 2 Judys -

I love this idea though -- everyone should submit a creative write-up on what happened when I opened the door.

That's nice of you to give Marlene an excuse. Marlene wasn't even one of the two who had the quick turnaround...she had all the time in the world to pack an overnight bag.

Hmm, tough to say. There were more trips on this occasion so that made it more of a pain -- but we were happier because we were at the resort. I'll still go with more trips = bigger pain.

I couldn't believe how low the clearance was...there wasn't any question that I shouldn't have tried going under!

Not really. LOL
Oh, you missed the campfire? I'll have a post on that, but it was nice although probably geared for younger-aged kids than mine. I didn't look for the grills, so didn't notice them but I probably walked right by them.

10 cents? You must have a lot of extra opinions.

They don't mind if you order 5 or 6 sides.

Yep. I may have said this in the write-up, but I like it because it's around 2/3 of the trip, and makes it a little easier on Day 2 of the driving.

It took us about 14 hours, including stops for restaurants (although remember at Hardee's I didn't technically "stop" ) and gas and um, other necessities.

I think I was looking a little pale. Now that you mention it, she did say several times, "The AED device is located right here. In case you, ah, need it." (just kidding)
