Not home yet... In North Myrtle Beach, SC.

I stopped in New Hampshire for some provisions: (third one from the left was purchased in your honor)

Ahh...  New Hampshire.   Shopper's paradise! (no sales tax IIRC)

I think you need a few more gadgets in that cockpit.  :D - and you emptied the lake again.

Gadgets? what gadgets?

GPS, ScanGuage II, Tire pressure / temp monitor.... Blackberry...

You need another gps, one that doesn't take you through apartment complexes as part of the route ;D

The Bicycles that were on the bike rack before it began to disintegrate.

About 100 miles into the second day, I noticed that the bikes were not in the same position on the rear-view camera.

Upon inspection we found that the receiver portion of the bike rack was bent.


We weighed our options, and decided to try to find a u-haul trailer to put the bikes in. We did and got back on the road.

The whole ordeal ended up costing us about 2 hours. There were other complications that we discovered when we arrived at Debs...

Currently we're about 40 miles south of Wilmington, NC, home of CT.

Yeah, and an operator that calls to "sanity check" the directions.  :o ;D

We had bubble pizza for lunch.

17lbs of  butts just got the rub for smoke in the BPS tonight.

8 chicken breasts are being shredded for Buffalo chicken dip.

Vacation is hard work!
