Last Thursday, the 22nd on my birthday, 13 people, two vehicles, two doggies, 21 hours..... Florida bound!! We stopped at Cracker Barrel for my birthday meal. We drove about 10 hours and landed in Birmingham Alabama! A place we will never forget for the wrong reasons!! Basically it was like this, luggage unloaded, older ones went to Ihop, three rooms, the rest of us gathered in one room, one room the door was left cracked open, three luggage and an iPad stolen, police come, report given, wait for manager to get back from vacation to review cameras, don't go to sleep til after 2am, load up and travel on to Florida! Hey we got more room in our vehicle...haha!!
The sad part is that 3 of the guys, Andrew, Elijah, and Daniel had almost everything they owned in their bags now gone, only the clothes on their back! We went to kohls the next morning and got the necessities!! I felt the worse for Daniel, his iPad he just bought 2 days ago....gone! He had bought a new hiking backpack and had most everything he was taking to Australia in it, all his "summer" stuff he got for Christmas! The only thing they didn't take was his pillow, and if they new the value of it, guess they would have taken it too!! haha!
We were glad to get outta Birmingham!! Destination: Lutz Florida!!!
