Florida - December 25, 2005-January 2, 2006

These pictures were taken during a trip to Florida in late 2005 and the first couple days of 2006. They were taken with my Olympus C730 Ultra Zoom digital camera. Most images are shown at a resolution of 640x480, but are available in full 2048x1536 size by clicking on the links after the captions. From the drives, most of the pictures are just roads and signs.

We left Amsterdam and headed south at 6:10 PM, but it was too dark for any pictures. Things were rainy and foggy and busy in New Jersey, but by midnight, we were near Washington, DC, and things were clearing up and the traffic had thinned.

With clear weather, it was a straight shot down I-95 through the night. [Picture] We made it to Florida by late morning, and after an experimental route from I-95 to I-75, we got into Naples before 7 PM. [25 Pictures from the road] 1494 miles in just under 25 hours.

We left Naples just after 9 and started north. Just one picture: we passed some parade floats on I-75 and US 301 [Picture]. The rest of the ride was quick and uneventful. By midnight, we were into southern Virginia.

Things continued to go smoothly through the night, and we got into Williamstown after 9:30 AM. The ride back covered 1498 miles in 24 hours, 42 minutes.
