David, when you two reach Mobile, AL, wave north as you pass by I-65. That way you will wave at most of my family. [emoticon] Wave south as you pass the exits for Fairhope and Daphne, too. That'll get the other half. [emoticon]

Hi Laura,

I'll try to remember that. [emoticon] Hey, how is that I-10 bridge over all that water near Mobile?

The Bayway, as we Mobilians call it, is just fine. It is long, flat, and has a great view of Mobile Bay.

Laura, I thought it had a big high point that you could see the Battleship from or am I thinking of another bridge?

I think Bob is thinking of a different bridge cuz this one (I-10) was long, flat, but not that high.

We got to Florida Springs RV Resort & Campground in Bonifay FL (112 miles from the western border on I-10) around 7:30 local time. Took a little jokey-ing of the trailer to get into the site and in a spot that was fairly level (yep, dirt/gravel again). What is it with these southerners and "resort"? Do they think that it means more than just grass? [emoticon] [emoticon]

Anyhow, we thought we had a good drive today until we got the trailer situated and opened the door. A few of the Corelle bowls and saucers fell out of the cupboard above the sink onto the floor and shattered into a million pieces. If you have ever seen a Corelle plate break, you know what I mean. [emoticon] If not, just imagine a glass plate breaking into a million pieces and you'll get the idea. Little shards of glass EVERYWHERE! Got it all (hopefully) cleaned up.

Tomorrow we'll be in Jacksonville. Yipee!!! [emoticon] [emoticon] [emoticon]


Laura,
We waved to the left and we waved to the right, but nobody waved back. [emoticon] They must have been doing whatever they do down here in your old neck of the woods. [emoticon]

David, there used to be a heavier version of Corelle called Centura. We had a set when we first got married in 1963. It was supposed to unbreakable for about 3 years--then it exploded if dropped--in little tiny shards of glass! Been there, done that. Would hate to have to clean it up in an RV--that's why we don't use anything breakable! Hope you vacuumed things up very well--and we used a wet cloth also. Glad you have had a good trip so far. That was a fast trip!

Jon, I think you are probably too old to remember "hokey pokey" let alone doing it. [emoticon]
