ROAD TRIP!

So I got the Florida job after all; my contract came in the mail on Saturday! I've already started planning my road trip out there.

Here's what my route looks like:

and GasBuddy.com estimates my gas will cost about $260. I really hope prices don't go up; good thing I got added to the schedule at Kohl's back home so I can save up for it. I'll sell my electric guitar and maybe some other things; I have a ton of downsizing to do as well.

I'll have stops for the night in Kansas City, St. Louis & Atlanta. My mom found a fellow Navy mom and believer who'd be very happy to let me stay; I'm hoping I can stay 2 nights and go visit IHOP-KC (and no, it's not a restaurant). As some of you may remember from a post I made a couple years ago, my friend Marc got healed of his cerebral palsy there, and I could sure use some serious prayer and healing. I also might get to meet Xyie from the CFF--and my friend Osric, too!

In St. Louis, I'll definitely get a motel room and finally get to hang out with my good friend Sleet! We'll at least meet at the zoo, but depending on how he's able to finagle his work schedule we might get some pizza and do some sighseeing, in addition to eating KFC & drinking Woodchuck while watching "Fantastic Mr. Fox". And cuddling. :p

I'm hoping to meet up with Jude in Clarksville en route to Atlanta. Gotta find a place to stay there, too; I hear the city is pretty much a giant ghetto. Still, it'll be nice to travel in a part of the country I've never been to! I'm also hoping to go to Elliott's Fall Festival, a furry con in Orlando, in October, and meet up with Stephen for what might well be our annual meet-up.

Someday I think I'd like to buy a little travel trailer for trips like these. Yet I'd really like to put down roots somewhere and not have to do so much moving. By the end of this year I will have lived at 5 different addresses in 3 different states. All this changing of addresses and insurance policies and stuff...tax season is probably going to suck hard, too.

I'll figure all this out. I can do this!

New video blog tomorrow. And it's about geocaching. Now if you'll excuse me, it's bedtime and my shins are not happy from all the walking around.

September 11th or 12th, depending if I end up spending another day in KC.
