DAY 190 / 191: FT. LAUDERDALE - CAPE CANAVERL - TITUSVILLE - STARKE, FLORIDA

Yesterday and today have been travel days.

Our overnight in FT. LAUDERDALE was excellent, even though we did not get to meet with our hostess, Claudia.

At daybreak, drove SPIA up I-95 to CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA (the town), where I met the Twins of Mike and Catrell and visited with Mike for a couple hours before driving to TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA for the night with Niece, Karen & Bob.

SPIA is pictured in Mike's Condo Parking - where we spent the night a few weeks ago as we headed South to KEY WEST, FLORIDA.

Please say HELLO to the twins: ZACH and MORGAN. Both these brothers are active Life Guards at the CAPE CANAVERAL Atlantic Beach.

After saying goodbye to Mike, drove SPIA to TITUSVILLE, where we spent the night sleeping in SPIA. Bob was just home from the Hospital where he had the rotators cup of his shoulder replaced earlier in the day. Did not get to say HI or Goodby to Bob as he was bedridden during my short overnight stay.

Early this morning, said goodbye to Karen and drove SPIA North on I-95 to SR 100, the same route I walked a few weeks ago. We headed for the Mom & Dad of Mike, who asked that we stop by on our return trip from KEY WEST.

We are now parked at Harry Cooney's home for the night. Later on, will join Harry and Maryanne for dinner. After dinner will accompany Harry to a Tea Party Meeting in nearby KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, FLORIDA.

In the morning, will drive North on SR 100 to the town of LAKE CITY, FLORIDA, where we will begin our walk to OKLAHOMA CITY. We will walk North on US 41 to VALDOSTA, GEORGIA, where we will pick up US 84 West. Upon reaching LAUREL, MISSISSIPPI, we will turn North on SR 28 to SIMPSON, MS., taking US 49 to US 80.

We will follow US 80, paralleling I-20, crossing the Mississippi River at VICKSBURG, and on to SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA. Then, we head North to TEXARKANA, then West to WICHITA FALLS, TEXAS.

A bit more West to VERNON, TEXAS; then North to WOODWARD, OKLAHOMA.

I expect this route to take about two months to complete.

Then we shall see what becomes of us.
