Baton Rouge, LA to Kissimmee, FL
706 miles / approx. 11 hours
We did it! Welcome to Florida, “America’s Wang”! Right now we’re in a 4th-floor room at a hotel in Kissimmee, FL — we can see the fireworks at Epcot from our window. We can also see the backside of Expedition Everest over at Animal Kingdom. Awesome.
We could have stopped for the night in Ocala, which is around 80 miles to the north, but we pushed through and drove all the way here. It’s a nice feeling that tomorrow morning we don’t have to set an alarm, and we’ll be ready to go in the right city when we leave.
Tomorrow morning I’ll head over to the Entertainment building (which I could actually walk to from the hotel) and pick up a copy of my contract, which should come in handy as proof of employment. Then we’ll start on the great apartment hunt.
Six days on the road wasn’t too horrible, but it’s a little too intense to do again anytime soon. Those of you who know us will not be surprised to hear that we had many laughs, the only tears were due to the laughs, and we didn’t have a single fight.
