A Video of My Vacation

My Vacation, Part 2

I’ve had a very interesting time since last I posted.

Lightning struck a tree near our cabin last night and there were terrible storms for several hours.

I took as much of a shower as I could this morning, considering that the sinks here have 15 times the water pressure of the showers. And I’m almost certain that the German man in the next shower over was smoking while he showered…

I went to the Kennedy Space Center this morning and went strait to the Star Trek exhibit.

They had all kinds of props and costumes and I even snuck over the railing and had my picture taken with Worf.

I went on a space shuttle take off simulator that simulated what it would feel like to travel at 17,000 mph.

I then did the Star Trek Live show and bought a Tribble.

Finally, we took a tour bus over the the Saturn V Rocket Center where they had the command modules from several of the Apollo missions.

/p>They also had a full-sized replica of The Robot from Lost in Space. It had been my dream for years to built my own working replica of this robot, and now I am more eager than ever to do so.

I came back to the campground and watched “The Trouble with Tribbles” with my Tribble, which I christened, “Gary.”

Even though the day is almost over, I still have a lot more in store in the next few days.

My Vacation, Part 1

I have been feeling really stressed out lately so I took a week off of work for a vacation, and I have to say that it has been pretty interesting so far.

I left Saturday night to drive to my grandmothers house near Atlanta. This was the first time I’ve ever driven in Atlanta alone, so I was pretty nervous, but I had Michael Jackson music to make be feel better. But I think people in Atlanta need to learn how to drive.

I left from my grandmothers house on Monday night and then left this morning at 7am for Florida.

This trip to Florida was by far the most interesting one I’ve ever had.

I slept through to first half of the trip and woke up when we stopped for lunch at Chick-fil-A. It was the worst Chick-fil-A I have ever been to I my life. There were dead flys on the tables and the bathroom looked like crap (pun intended). All of the employees looked depressed and I might as well have ordered a rubber sandwich. But the fries were okay.

Then we passed this flea market type of thing with all of these ceramic animals. Some of them were actually kind of disturbing.

Once we looked through that place we passed a really bad fire with 9 firetrucks trying to control it.

And the highway we got on was “air potrolled” which literally means that helicopters fly over it and check peoples speed and then radio down to cop cars when they catch a speeder.

We are staying at my first KOA campground. Actually we aren’t camping, we got a tiny cabin instead.
