This is a blog to record all of the crazy stories that will happen throughout the trip from Orlando, FL to Seattle, WA. Here is how it all starts. My best friend is coming back from Germany and so is his girlfriend. She is planning on taking his dog from Orlando to Bozeman, MT. He is planning on taking a bike trip that distance, so it leaves her to drive alone. I will fly down there and ride with her during the trip to keep her company!

Nashville is full of hicks!

Leaving Orlando
Today was full of 11 hours of driving ...We went from Orlando to Nashville ...along the way we only spotted two confederate flags ...I was pretty disapointed ...I did consider putting a George W sticker on the car just so we would have safe passage, but then decided that those can be pretty permanent!

Bible Sale?
Traveling through the "bible belt" was pretty interesting ...along with the massive fireworks and smut stores, there was one billboard that caught my eye (just to the right) ...they actually have a several of these up along I-95! Guess they are just helping sell the #1 selling book!

Weather has been pretty hot most of the way, but when we were just outside of Nashville, it started dumping! It felt like someone had turned on a firehose really came down ...made it very hard to find the hotel ...we got a little lost because they don't label things right here ...(wonder if more than 50% of the population can even read ...just kidding ...kind of)

Last but not least, just before we took off out of Orlando, we all made a venture to Tijuana Flats ...I had never heard of it before, but it was probably the best experience I've had in a long time ...for those who know me, you know my love for hot sauces get this ...they have at least 20 hotsauces they make there ...and they have most of them vom fass (From the TAP!) How amazing is that? I tested out 8 of their hot sauces...convienced me enough to buy three while we were planning our route, I had to put them in the shot ...the food was ok, but the rest of the experience was AMAZING!!!

Well, for now, its time to get some shut-eye ...its getting late!

Great start! Hot sauce - hot weather - starting to cool off as you move west. How's the live cargo?

From the #1 selling book...'Remember I will be with you and protect you wherever you go..."

Live cargo is doing great...she remembered me! She is so calm, just sits there and watches things as I drive!
