What a Day

That was yesterday. We started out and when we got to I-75 there was a wreck and 4 police cars that had the on ramp blocked so no one could get on at this spot. I drove out to Dade City then up to San Antonio and on out back to I-75. We headed north and in a short distance the traffic started slowing down. 15 mph for about 20 miles. Then we saw what this slow down was about. A couple of guys were sweeping up the highway. Someone had lost their trailer looked to be at least a 29 footer. This thing was demolished. They had the chassis part on a flat bed a the rest of it was just dust and splinters. After we got up to speed there was so much traffic and everyone was in a hurry that it became to hectic for me. I got off and proceeded up US 41. I always enjoy these back roads that were once the main roads. Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we forget how life was back in simpler times. We pasted through some same towns with the beautiful old houses and trees hanging over the roads. Past the old motels that use to a lot of bussiness when the roads were heavily travel. Some are out of business and run down now,but some are turned into apartments. Going this way only added anothe 1 or 1 1/2 hour to our journey but worth it.
We did finally make it to Sherry's and enjoyed the visit with her and the family.
We will be staying until Monday and then go back home.
