Florida Trip
December 11-21, 2003

This trip took me to the Sunshine State at a time of year when it starts to become very popular. During my Winter Break from college, I took this 11-day journey. Beginning Thursday, December 11, I drove on Interstate 44 to Wichita Falls, Texas, and clinched that interstate. From there, I took U.S. 287 to Fort Worth, then took a short jaunt to the west on Interstate 30 to get to Interstate 20. After that, I headed the other direction (east) on Interstate 20, and ended up in Terrell, Texas, on Day One. On Day Two, I drove to Alexandria, Louisiana, with a sidetrip to the Shreveport area to drive all of Interstate 220 and Louisiana 3132. The next day, I drove to Pensacola, Florida. After that, I made hotel stops in Tampa and Palm Bay, Florida. But that was only the first half of the trip. During the second half of the trip, I went to Charlotte and spend a couple nights there. After that, I finally headed towards home, but not before taking a bit of a deviation to drive all of Interstate 24.
