23/03/07 - Ocala to Crestview -
Not a good day. Spent too long in the "saddle". 12 hours in all driving from Ocala, Central Florida to Crestview, North West Florida (Near Pensicola on the Gulf Coast). Another quick drive through Tallahasee, modern and clean but nothing much to see. I guess the highlight today was the journey along the coast road between Crawfordvillle and Panama City. It was a beautiful day (mid 70's) and the view across the Gulf and the Florida Pan Handle was equally inspiring. Avoid central Panama City, it's too busy. Especially the "front beach road" where there are hubdreds of "beautiful" people topping up their tans and muscles! (A bit like Miami Beach)
So far I have travelled 2162 miles in 10 days. My original plan was to travel a total of 5100 miles in 90 days. Therefore, at this rate I will travel 20,000! (I think I need to stay still for a while!) The problem is when your home goes with you there seems little point returning to a base, you might as well move on to the next destination. Which by the way is New Orleans.
