Rick's Road Trip Fri Oct 10/Mon Oct 13

Next Day


Fri: On the road to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
I ran out of cooler beer so I stopped at a Liquor store. Hmm.... Seems like they only sold Liquor. Had to find a grocery store to buy beer or wine. Lucky me I found a store that happened to have Yuengling Porter. What luck! The weather was overcast and windy but warm. Had to use the AC to cool the motel room. Stopped at the Wright Bros national Park at Kitty Hawk . It was interesting that the first flight was about 120 feet. I expected longer. Viewed a presentation of how the Wright Bros accomplished what they did and the difficulties they had to overcome. The stop was a worthwhile use of my valuable time.
Sat: On the road to Kingsland, Ga. to visit with my brother Bob and Charlotte.
Sun: In Kingsland
Visited with Bob and Charlotte and their daughter Katie. Also visited with their son Eric and his wife Lisa. Eric and Lisa both work at the same hospital. She is a lab technician ahd he works in the audio-visual department. He also works part-time in a music recording studio. Bob is chess junkie. He has about 25 different chess sets and 10 to 15 chess boards. His other pasttime is computer graphics animation. He has lots of graphics of chess sets of different designs. Actually pretty cool.
Mon: On the road to Titusville,Fl. home of Kennedy Space center
Note: Lots of rain on and off the last several days. Probably more than SoCal gets in a year.
Tues: Hope for no rain so I can visit the Kennedy Space center.
