It's Roadtripping Time!

Today the Wife and I are heading out on a roadtrip.  We are heading to the south ending up eventually in Key West.  We will be visiting the Wife's Aunt and cousin who live in Tampa along the way.

The Wife has planned an incredible itinerary for us.  Here are a few things we will be doing over the next couple of weeks:

  • Dig for diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas.
  • Explore the history of Africatown and the Clotilda (the last slave ship) near Mobile, Alabama.
  • Kayak in a mangrove forest in the West Florida Keys.
  • In Key West we will:
    • Visit the Hemingway house.
    • Visit Robert the creepy doll.
    • Visit the Tennessee Williams museum.
    • Visit the Southernmost point of the United States.
  • Visit the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida
  • Snorkel with manatees in Crystal Springs, Florida
  • Explore a cave at Sims Cave State Park (this will require us to squeeze/crawl through narrow passages and you are asked to bring a set of dry clothing to change into after you exit the cave).
  • Take a civil rights tour in Birmingham, Alabama.
  • Visit the Lorraine Hotel and civil rights museum (where Martin Luther King was assassinated) in Memphis, Tennessee.
  • Visit the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.
Like our other trips, I do not know if I will post along the way or wait until we get back.  For some reason I feel like writing on the road this time but I know this has not worked in the past.  It all depends on how much energy I have at the end of the day.
