Journal Entry:
Probably the worse hangover of my life this morning (and afternoon and evening) made this a brutal drive. The rain forced me to put the top up, and the 110 percent humidity didn't help either. All in all a miserable drive. I was trying to find the KOA campground when I saw the hotel for considerably less than the campground was going to cost, so I opted for another night in a hotel. This is a cheap hotel, they even charge $.50 for ice, and $.54 for local calls. It does however have Magic Fingers on the bed, which I don't think I've seen since the 70's.

I met Steve, Michele, and Michel's brother and his wife for dinner. It was great to see them, and very nice to have a good dinner with someone (other than just myself). They're in Florida to do the amusement park thing for five days.
