I can remember a BBS of some sort in the Fall of '95/Spring of '96. I was trying to plan my first trip then. Boy, was I young!

Of course, this was all done at my undergrad college since there was no way I could afford the hourly rates they were charging on connections at the time.

Heh, now I know how my dad feels when he describes party lines and the advent of electricity in his town. Eesh!

Nebo, I can't believe you don't have BC powders up there! Must be a southern thing. There's BC Powders and Goody's Powders which are heaven-sent when you have a pounding headache (we used to even have them at work in the vending machine). They are, I believe, a mixture of aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine in a powdered form in a little paper wrapper like a chewing gum wrapper. You open it up, tilt your head back and pour it down your throat, then take a sip of your beverage of choice. Pretty nasty going down, but boy is it worth it. Next trip this way, you should stop at any gas station on your way down south, once you get past Kentucky, I'd say, and I know you'll find them. If not, I'll be glad to mail you some!

P.S. I can't believe your following already on this trip report! This will go on till Christmas--yay!

I guess great minds must think alike, however I've had the Suessism in my siggie since I signed up. It's my motto and I live by it. Looking forward to the next installment.
Kris, that is strange though, don't you think? I came arcross that line in a Bathroom Reader, and just loved it.

Hi, Welcome aboard. Hopefully I can get us down there soon, so I can start posting some of these pictures.

Cm4, I think you have to delete the rest, and just save the single line you want to quote. And no, the fries aren't wrapped up in the hot dog, they are wrapped up with the hot dog. One big package of dripping love.

I would think that january could be a big letdown if you are used to seeing all the decorations. Even when we go in Sept. I miss the may flowers at Epcot.


This is 90% of the fun…tinkering=months of Disney fun
I couldn't agree more. Would you send me your next itinerary so I can mess with it please?


Ha ha! While driving home on the highway one night a deer jumped out in front of us … He swerved and almost hit a semi truck …yes I screamed…the funny thing though, is that for the rest of the drive home we were all so on edge, everything we saw looked like a deer getting ready to jump in front of us… I screamed at more mailboxes than I’d care to admit
Again, right again. Once it happens, it takes about 200 miles before you can relax again.

This is one of my favorite parts of driving to DW! We start off in winter coats, mittens, scarves and hats..slowly start to peel the layers off as we drive south… by the end of the drive we’re in shorts and t-shirts…sux going back and getting colder and colder… You don't want to know what my mind was like on the drive home. not even a little.

Me to MDF. This is precisely why I am McKeefamily3..I joined back in oh 98 I think and back then every time they upgraded the server I lost all of my stuff. I had to start over 3 times

Enjoying the trippy… so far so good …can’t wait to hear about free hotel food. ...
Again with the motel food. Geesh! I better make this next part GOOD! Oh the pressure, the pressure!

What you are describing sounds very strange. Does anybody else know what she's talking about? WHogirl, I think that mountain air might be getting a bit thin.

Ok, chapter 3 will be up and running possibly later tonight, for sure tomorrow. See ya'll then.

Yep, I know exactly what she's talking about. I can't say I've ever tried them but I know many that swear by the powders over the pills. It's definitely a southern thing.

My southern cousins are always talking about taking 'powders' for their aches and pains. I'm not sure if they're more effective or if it's just a placebo effect, but they won't take the pill versions. Of course, they also don't pour them down their throat and then drink something. They just pour them into their drink and have at it.

Hi Missy, nice to meetcha. Nice screen name, I almost took that one myself. It's amazing what you can use a Quija Board for isn't it?

Thank you one and all for posting and reading, hopefully we can keep the laughs flowing.

Perry, Ga:

Wednsday morning arrived with a groan. Groan on the inside, dark on the outside.

At six thirty in the morning, I'm really glad we pushed as far as we did yesterday. My back is killing me, as I knew it would be, but even if we pulled up a couple of hundred miles earlier, it wouldn't have made a difference to how I felt today. So at least today is a much shorter drive.

For those of you wondering, yes, Diane drives, she just doesn't drive on expressways or highways. She's a good driver otherwise, so I never push that issue. After loading up the car again, I pull it down to the lobby, and we go in for the delectable Hot continental breakfast that is also FREE!

However, I am confused.

It is still pitch black outside. This time of year in Carpentersville, it would be starting to be lighting outside. Let's see, the sun rises in the east, and in december, is in the southern hemisphere.

Hmm, we have driven towards the east, and are much further south now.

So, it should be getting light earlier, right?
But, then we lost an hour, time zone wise, and I guess we haven't made that whole hour up in our location. Geesh!

On arrival inside of the motel lounge, I immediately knew why they call it a "Continental Breakfast."

There were two hispanics, an Asian, and a guy that looked Pakistani already in there. And I'm not counting the hillbilly
Hey, we're an equal opportunity offender.
But not a donut or bagel in sight.

Here's the menu:

Fake cheerios, milk, coffee, frozen waffles, hard boiled eggs, bread and oatmeal. The closest thing to any kind of meat, was the dead cockroach in the corner. The only thing that came hot was the coffee, it was more of a, "You make it hot" continental breakfast.

I really didn't care, it's not like I was looking forward to a Cracker Barrel breakfast anyway, besides, yesterdays' memories are not that far removed.

I had coffee, a waffle I stuck in the toaster, and bread I stuck in the toaster.
Good enough for me. The last thing I wanted to do was turn this Continental Breakfast into something else.

Like an "In-Continental Breakfast", if you get my drift.

I was just thinking, there are a lot of newcomers here, but we have not begun to take any pictures as of yet. So just so you might have an idea of whom, or what you're reading, I'm posting a picture from my first trip report for the heck of it. This is from "If it's tuesday, this must be Epcot" and , if anything, it should thin out the readers a bit.



Anybody still there? Hello?

By the way, I'm the one in the middle.

On the way to the car, Smidgy notices that I'm already doing the Quasimodo walk, but there's not a thing I can do about it. I've already taken two aspirin and two profens, that's all my stomach can take for now.
And the Santa Fe is still the best vehicle I've ever driven down there in.
It's made in South Korea, and we bought it new in 03. The first time I turned on the radio, I couldn't understand a word they were saying.

But this small SUV isn't happy unless it's totally packed, and crossing many state line borders.

Did I mention that it's also built in Mexico?

(mom, I'm sorry about that last joke, really, I am)

By seven, we're back on the road, and I'm still looking for the sun.
And deer.

Finally, it starts getting light out, and I punch in 75 on the cruise.
I hardly ever push it too much, for one thing it cuts down on gas milage, and secondly, I don't have a radar detector. If you're constantly looking for cops, it takes away any relaxment you get from using the cruise, and adds stress to your body instead. This back doesn't need any more stress.

With the cruise control set at a meager 5 over, it took less than 5 minutes before the "nasty" signs reared their ugly heads.
And they progressively got meaner.

"Construction ahead 2 miles"

then

"Speed limit 50"

"Construction for the next 32 miles"

"Speed radar timed and enforced"

"SPEEDING FINES DOUBLED IN CONSTRUCTION ZONE"

it was the last one that got me to shut down the cruise though

"DID YOU EVER SEE, 'MACON COUNTY JAIL?"

Yep, that last one will do it. I HAVE seen Macon County Jail, and I'd like to remain a vir..... well, never mind.

I know one thing is going to have to change this day, compared to yesterday. If my back is going to make it, there will have to be plenty of stops. Luckily, this section of 75 has a few of them.

We turned into true believers of President Bush's policy of "No rest area left behind".
Pulled into the Tifton rest area, then about 50 miles later, had to stop again for gas, then hit the Florida welcom center. This normally totally goes against all my driving habits, where the only time we stop is for gas. I did notice something else I had forgotten about when we crossed the state line.

Our first trip down to Disney was in '92 with the kids. The first days' drive ended in a town just south of Atlanta called Stockbridge, and we ordered a pizza that night for dinner. The leftovers went in the cooler.
By the time we hit Florida, there was a terrible smell in the car, and when we got out at the welcome center, Diane and I thought it was from the pizza, and threw the rest of it out. Within 20 miles, the smell had gone away, and even though we didn't understand it, we were just relieved to have not saved it and eaten any the next day.

Until the return trip, home.

At right around the same area, the smell came back. I remember saying, "Either that pizza is still sitting in the garbage can over there, or we through out a perfectly good pizza for nothing."

Today, that smell is back. I have no idea where it comes from, but next time you drive the 75 route down, see if you notice it.

Ok, photo intermission time again. This time of Smidgy, same trip report.



Our last rest area not left behind was in Ocala, then we took the Florida Turnpike. The motel de jour was the only one I had made a ressie in advance, a Travelodge Suites, maingate, in Kissimee.

After exiting the turnpike, this motel can be a bit dodgy.
There are two of them on rt. 192, the Irlo Bronson Highway, and they are both named "Maingate". Only difference is the address, and one of them has the word, "orange" in parenthesis in the title.

Our ressies are for the not orange one.
Why book in advance you ask for an early december night in the middle of the week?

35 a night, that's why.
ANd, a suite! Never stayed in a suite before.

On the way to it, we passed the other one, and it looked really nice. So did that part of town, also, a real touristy look was everywhere.
Go karts, mini golf, ticket centers. Cool. Now I feel like I'm on vacation.
But our motel was still a couple miles down the road, and this area wasn't quite as "spiffy".

We checked in, got our ground floor room, but we had to walk around a corner from where the car was to where they hid the lousy smokers room in the back, where the lousy smokers belong.

That's ok, considering what I know is coming, I'm just glad to get a smoking room, period.

By the way, the definition of a suite?
A huge gigantic add-on to a regular room, that has a pull-out sofa in it.
I started laughing the second we opened the door. You could have put a pool table in there if you wanted it was so big.

Heck, you could have put a pool in there, but all there was was a sofa bed.

They did have a pool though, and since our summer tan has almost totally disappeared by now, I was changed and ready to check it out. That was the first time I met the stalker.

Diane was still unpacking and changing, so I said I'd meet her by the pool.
Wearing just a bathing suit and sneakers, a towel over my shoulder, and carrying a can of PBR and my trusty Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, you can picture what I looked like.
Through the parking lot, I passed a worker pushing a hopper of branches.

I did the polite head nod, which he countered with, "Heading out to the pool are ya?"

I wanted to say, "Nope, got a job interview, here's your sign."
Instead, I said, "Nope, the beach, which is warmer, the Gulf side or Atlantic?"

Yeah, I suppose that wasn't much nicer, what can I say?
At first he just looked at me, then he kind of laughed and went on his way.

It was not a pretty pool, plus it was right by the road with a lot of traffic noise. However, it is december, yesterday morning it was in the teens where I was, and now I'm sitting by a pool, and no airplanes where involved.

Later when Diane joined me, she said she just ran into the strangest man, I said hi to him, and he said "Go ahead, he's waiting for you." I had to laugh.

A short "aside" here. This is now our 12th time down to the world of Disney. Nine of those times, we drove. Part of that reason is the tinkerability factor, the other part is that it's still a bit cheaper to drive, and thirdly, I'm not crazy about flying.

Just don't like the helplessness feeling about being packed into an aluminum cookie dough tube with wings.

We flew down in september of '06 and it was not one of my shining moments. It was bad enough when I found out our flight number was 451, as in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, but the whole ordeal started out with a whimper when I saw this little gray haired old man get on the plane ahead of me.

Then found out he was the pilot.

I lovingly referred to him as Pontius, the Pilot. I went into great depth about this plane trip in my second trip report, Feeding Nebo and if anyone wants, I suppose I can find it in the archives and post a link to it.

At the pool, we have it all to ourselves, but after feeling the water, uh uh, no way I'm going in there. That's ok, I'm happy just to be here. To me this was just incredible, we knew coming down this time of year can be a bit dicey with the weather, and any pool time would be a plus. It was about 66 that day for a high, but as long as the sun was out, it felt great.

Two hours later we headed back to the room, but stopped by the car for a second to get some things.

Our buddy was there, too.

Looking into the mostly still packed Santa Fe, he said, "You guys must be on vacation."

Yeah, no getting one over on this guy.

"Nope, just taking our luggage for a drive."
As Bill Engvall would have said there just wasn't enough signs for this guy.

In the room, I am now in serious manhattan time. You know, for pain maintenance. Dinner plans were going to be to finish off the Popeye's chicken we brought with us, but instead we opted for the Mcdonalds' that was next door. After changing I wanted to get it when it was still light out and we could walk, even though we weren't ready to eat just yet. No problem, our room had a microwave.

Upon the return trip from Macdonalds, of course I'm carrying the big white bags with the big M on them.

Wanna guess what's coming up?

You got it!

"Hi again." "Went to the ol Mickeyds', huh?"

By now I'm thinking we are his sole entertainment in life.
"Nope,went to Microsoft, just had dinner with Bill Gates and he let us take home the leftovers."

Back in the room, I put the whole bag in the microwave. It stays pretty warm in there, and when it's all together, you only need to zap the whole bag for about 40 seconds.

One problem though.
It's not plugged in.
And the cord comes two feet short of the outlet.

Ok, I'll just move the microwave.

Uh uh. It is totally and completely bolted down to the top of the dresser.

Ok, I'll just pull the dresser over.

Uh uh. It is totally and completely bolted to the wall.

So, it boiled down to :
I can't heat the food, that's in the micro, that's bolted to the dresser, that's bolted to the wall, ,,,

That lived in the house that Jack, built.

The guy at the counter told us our room had a working microwave, so I didn't understand this, unless somebody stole the extension cord.

I explained the dilemma to Diane, and of course, she had to go and check out all the variables to see for herself, because, you know, I can't be trusted.

After she saw everything I said was true, she stood back and looked at it, then she solved the problem.

SHE RIPPED IT OFF THE TOP OF THE DRESSER!

I'm not kidding.
I looked again, and now it was two feet further down, bolts lying on the floor, and she has it humming happily away.

The moral of this story:

Never give a woman too much whiskey!

coming up, D-Day at last!
sweet dreams everybody,

god, you sound just like my husband. whenever i "verify" what he tells me he always says, "what.....you don't trust me??????"

nope, that's why i vowed before all our family and all our friends and god and whoever else happened to be walking by the cecil b. day chapel in athens, georgia on april 13th, 2002 at 8:00 p.m. that i would spend the rest of my life.....with someone......i don't trust!

love the "here's your sign" comments. did you really say that about microsoft to him? if so, he probably didn't get it.

I'm getting to the point that I think that the free motel/hotel breakfasts aren't worth it any more. I would rather find a donut or bagel place and get something instead of the "free breakfast".

To anyone out there that loves me, or at least likes me just a little, I need help.

You have no idea the torture I just endured. After 3 hours of writing this last chapter, when I hit submit reply, that little blue line that slowly fills up stopped filling up. This was followed by "this page cannot be displayed". THis has happened to me before, so now I always copy it first just in case. But this time it also kicked me off of AOL, and froze up the entire puter. So I knew the copying was deleted. Luckily, this time it went through, or I'd have a smashed computer and monitor right now.

my question is this.
If when I'm done writing, and I send it to myself in an email, which I know I can do, what will it look like when I paste it into a trip report when I boot up again? I'm not sure if the margins will all be messed up, and if the pictures will then go through, no what I mean, Jean? Has anybody tried it this way? No, I don't have "Word", I've never used it. I just sit here and type, then hit submit. So, any thought on posting a chapter from an email, just in case? Thanks, neebs
