    Look close above the kids head to see a falcon. He thought he was to have it land on his arm but really he would have been hurt by that.

    The joke was over his head. The bird landed on the tree behind him.

    We rocked up through Nashville on the way home. Nice feel to the town.

    Weather was nice for January. To bad we went through the Great Smokey Mountains at night. We did that one a few years ago. The Mammoth Onyx cave would be a thread in itself.

    Thanks, I have a few greens for taking the time. I need the practice as its hunt and peck for me. I sometimes get it right though I know there are better ways with pic posts.

    I fumbled the go pro as it was on burst mode for the airboat ride. And I filmed the street performers but am too dumb to embed them here. Fish ain't that smart. Or I should say I haven't taken and or don't have the time to fool with this box err lap top and dumb phone.

    I know I come off as callous sometimes, Id like to put my finger on it. Often I just can't seem to strike a chord.

    Your posts are always fun to read, being an Aussie, took me awhile to work it out..

    You're quite welcome biff. It is time consuming but worth it if a few can get a glimpse into others adventures and gain a perspective they may not have had before.

    I have been to a few places but unlike Johnny Cash I can't say "I've been everywhere man." So I too enjoy others travel threads and try to give a little back when and if I can.

    As a child I recall shuffling through boxes of old photographs with my brother and sisters trying to put the puzzle of time together. Remembering the places, faces and the names of people in our present and our past.

    This allways brings to mind an old Simon and Garfunkel tune.

    Time it was and what a time it was. It was a lovely time.

    A time of innocence, a time of confidences.

    Long ago it must be I have a photograph.

    Preserve your memories, their all thats left you.

    Wow, looks like you had a fantastic trip!
    Florida coast looks lovely, yet busy!

    Pelican and sailboat shots are lovely.

    Universal studios look amazing! Did you get to any other of the theme parks? I was seeing last night on their website that Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center and Universal studios would be great to see if I could ever afford it. Haha..
    I see you paid an extra $100 for the fast pass..wowzers. I bet it was worth it though.
    I've heard great things about Nashville as well.. many friends from there.
    My grandparents used to visit Florida every winter and I've heard so much about Daytona Beach, so I want to visit someday.

    Cheers for the thread!

    As this thread has been bumped.

    May I ask, did you get a speeding ticket for going 85 MPH?

    Not on this trip. We had never been to Universal Studios Orlando before so the plan was to spend a few days there. Also the Kennedy Space Center is of interest to me so we spent time in the Cocoa Beach area near Kissimmee Florida.

    We left the north east area of Fla to try an make it on a fly in to the Dry Tortugas but found no room at any of the places along the Florida Keys so we gave up on Key West altogether. I was told by many locals that bookings must be done in advance as it was high season.

    We headed west out of Miami, wich is an insanely cool city, along the souther most road in Florida and found ourselves taking an airboat ride through the everglades as well as a swamp buggy tour. Then visited some of the wifes friends in the Tampa Bay area followed by a stay in the Fort Myers area for New years eve.
    Then we meandered up the west coast and found our way through the Great Smoky Mountains. Unfortunately the pics are on a hard drive that I've yet to bring back to life as that system crashed rather abruptly one evening.

    Glad you liked the pics I had. They were a pain to post at the time with all the resizing that was required to get them into the gallery.

    Check out the Kennedy Space Center thread if you like that sort of thing. I've been a Ray Bradbury fan since about the sixth or seventh grade and was hooked after reading R is for Rocket.

    Cheers, the fish.

    Oh, sorry Bogan . The no was meant for TB. But to answer your question the answer is no as well. I believe the speed limit in that area was 80mph so everyone does 85 or so. Where I live up north it's 70mph on the freeway so 75 is the norm, unless you're in a blizzard. Then you'd be a fool to travel that fast.

    Places like Montana and Arizona also have pretty aggressive speed limits as there is just so much wide open ground to cover. Last time I hit Dallas-Fort Worth it took me fourteen hours and that was through a snow storm a few hours out of Wisconsin and all the way home. You get used to it I guess. Cheers.

    Ok, I did some quick fact checking. The speed limit on the Interstate in Florida is 70mph. However when your being passed by 40 foot recreational vehicles towing SUVs you learn to just go with the flow.

    Cool, thanks!
    I've been through the Blue Ridge mountains in NC. There is a huge mountain chain along there with the Smoky and Appalachians as well. I was going through NC after my contract working there for six months. Rode down from Canada on my own in an '87 pontiac chevy.... I'm sure I was going faster than 80 as well.. lol.
    I'd love to check out Miami as well. Looks like you had a blast! Thanks for the information.
