Bob and Shirley's Great Adventure 2011-12 travel blog

After about 970 miles we made it to Darci and John's home in Griffin GA. Got in early enough to drop by the Verizon Store and get Dad a smart phone that has GPS in it that he can just talk to and it plots his course and tells him turn by turn directions. We all went to dinner and just after noon he left for our daughter Collins house in Dothan Alabama for a stay of undermined days. He is driving himself and here is why. One he is capable and good for short distance driving. Two, if I told him he could not drive 4 hours just after effectively loosing the woman he has loved for almost 23 years I am not sure he could handle both. We are praying with the GPS and a beautiful day for a drive that he will do just fine. Shirley and I will be heading down to Neptune Beach Fl just outside of Jacksonville with a truck load of items to set up housekeeping for Dad when he gets back. We will need to rent a UHaul covered trailer to take the furniture Darci is lending to the cause. So, I will drive the big honkin dually with the camper and Shirley will drive her truck and the trailer. It is about 6 hours. Not sure when Dad will be back. Collins has an open invitation for him and he could leave from Dothan to go to the west coast if he wants. He will be treated very well by ALL his grandchildren on both coasts. Sorry for the delay in blogging but as you know we have been a tad busy. No pics today.
