Rick's Road Trip Fri Oct 24/Sun Oct 26

Next Day

Fri: On the road to the Florida panhandle.
Pouring rain most of the day. Got to Tallahasse and found most motels full and the one that had a room was way overpriced. Decide to continue on. About another hour down the road, found a place to stay. Still raining.
Sat: Drove thru the pandandle to Pensacola, Florida. Most of this area is a resort. Spent some beach time at Grayton beach. R and R is always good. Further on saw some signs that made me think one of two things. Either I was in some alternate universe or I was severely lost. I eventually figured out that I wasn't lost. This was accomplished by stopping at McGuires Irish pub and having a few cool ones. Of course the over 500,000 dollar bills on the ceiling and walls did not help my general sanity. Spent the night in the Pensacola area.
Sun: On the road to New Orleans via the gulf coast of Mississippi. Lots of nice beaches but mostly not populated. In Biloxi you could see the effects of Katrina. Lots of foundations without a building and lots of for sale signs. Some casinos are still there. Piles of crap on the beaches. Arrived in New Orleans in the afternoon.
