12) The FINAL LEG!

Off the beaten path, Univ. of FLA, Ocala forest, Troy, home!

We had a great visit with our friend Danny, Danny at the bus: S6001499.jpg

but we had to give him a little ride before we made our final leg home.

Lake Alice:

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, University of Florida!

We said our good-bye's and we were off again! Flip flops! Yeah!

We took SR 441 toward Micanopy (pronounced: MIC-an-oh-pee), took a few pics of nice hanging moss oak trees (with Scooby, of course):S6001512.jpg

Then, along the road, we saw this HUGE place with tables of STUFF everywhere! We thought they might have a hub cap for us, so we stopped.
Wow... I can still hear the banjos playing...(cue music from Deliverance...) we didn't find a VW hub cap, but we got a lug wrench, a blue bottle, and an 8-ball (possibly our new shifter knob...) all for the price of $3!
Here's a pic of me in the bus before we left the place. Just imagine all that stuff outside the window multiplied by about 10 times, and that might come close to how much JUNK was at this place...

LOVE the hair!

We saw lots of horses...

"HEY!" ... "What?" ... "No, look... HAY!" S6001521.jpg

The first Wisconsin plate we saw in Florida: S6001525.jpg

Through the Ocala National forest... S6001526.jpg

This was weird, but we tried... I could never draw it good enough :)

(It says "Draw Bridge Ahead"... get it...?)

We stopped for lunch at a place right on the St. john's river, had some gator bites and sandwiches. LeeAnn helped bandage the cook's finger (the cook stabbed herself on accident" "I thought it was a potato.") she'll be alright... We parked next to a typical FLA pick-up (Camo-ed out...can you see it?)

On the road again:

This bug reminded me of an old Joan Jett song: (It's says "I [heart] Wok 'n Roll"...!)
S6001538.jpg

Only 66 miles to go!
S6001539.jpg

Only 12 miles!!!
S6001544.jpg

We stopped at her brother's house, Troy (not the city this time) and his daughter, Shaina was ALL kinds of excited! You couldn't get that smile off her face if you tried!
S6001547.jpg

Only 16, but ready to take her for a spin!
S6001551.jpg

Maybe after you learn to drive stick, kid... and horses don't count! :)

Uh-oh! Trouble strikes again! This time, the "young-un" will help me start her up:
S6001552.jpg See previous blog for caveat on this procedure.

She did a great job, and we had to head home. We got home, and barely unpacked. I'll have one more entry tomorrow about a few things I forgot, but that was our trip!

Thanks for following us! We had a blast, and met some great people along the way. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did (Yeah, I doubt it...) now you can go out and find your own adventures! We'll be looking for mysteries to solve along the way...

So who was the lucky soul that gotta to drive the Mystery machine to work today? I am not sure it will get through security Shaggy! Of course, if LeeAnn drives it to work, she will be all the gossip of the school!

I have pimped your blog on my blog! All my family members have called me or emailed me about you and your trip! Everyone is jealous!

Is there one more post for us? Looking forward to another entry!
