Dear Nae, I was busy all night.  Perhaps, I should explain.  I purchased a very good blowup mattress at Walmart and have not used it before last night.  Well, I went to bed in my little tent and one hour later was laying on the hard ground again.  I thought, "Fred, you silly boy, you didn't do it right."  So, I blew it up again and promptly went back to sleep as I was tired as a one legged man in a rear kicking contest. 
One hour later, guess what?  Yep.  I was back on the cold, hard ground.  Well, I blew it up again and waited.  Then, I waited some more.  Cool.  Looks like it fixed.  Went back to sleep.  Thanked the mattress gods. 
One hour later, you know the routine by now.  I cried some.  Got back up and looked for a hole.  Found nothing.   Went back to sleep on the cold, harder ground.  Thanked my God that I am experiencing this cause I know you go through some "stuff" in this area.  God bless you girl.  You're my main girl!   I slept like a baby...
Didn't hit a hive of bee's today!  But I rode like a crazy man again.  I'm beginning to understand what other states go through on traffic.  Wow.  I will never complain about Phoenix Traffic again!  And these people drive like they are racing in the Daytona 500! (Big car race in Florida)  I'm trucking along doing my usual 80miles per hour and am being passed like I'm sitting still.  The Regular traffic is doing 85 and 90!!!  Cool.  I just turned Goldie up a notch and we're here already.  Out of all of Florida, I only saw two cops.  Weird. 
Florida is fun.  No doubt about it.  The trees here are so thick you couldh't slip a sharp knife between them.  I would think even the animals would have issues in transportation. The bayou's were so neat in Louisiana and Alabama.  In fact, I like to say "bayou".  It's a fun word.  Like "Patagonia".  Now that's a keeper too.   Tickles the tongue as it rolls off. 
OK, I'm running down the road and having fun singing.  I'm thinking, what do you suppose would happen if I took a big drink of water from my handy, dandy water holder and spit it out to my right?  The urge overcame me and guess what?  It didn't go back, it went FORWARD!   Filled the entire front of my canapy and splattered the backside of my windshield!  Imagine my surprise.  My lap is wet, my insturments are wet, I am wet.  Now, one doesn't have a lot to do when driving down the road at that speed, so, I decided to try the left side just to prove the law of physics.  SPLAT!  Same thing.  Everything was dripping by then.  Some guy passes me with a weird look on his face.  Sort of like the cow picture.  It seemed to be funny at the time.  Guess you had to be there.  Hopefully, now you have.  :-) 
Good night sweet Vernae,
See you in the morning!

Love the pics and the physics lesson. Glad you're having so much fun. Maybe not the bees and the ever deflating airless mattress. Just a test of your fortitude.

Wow.... what an adventure. I am thinking about taking a trip this summer to Washington but I think it will be by car! How are the KOA's working out?
