Rick and Adam left about 6:10 a.m. The girls and I didn't leave until about 7:30. Both Rick and I had to go north and then east before we headed our separate directions. That's the fun of living in the panhandle. You can't just drive south east because there is an ocean in the way. Anyway, we drove the hour north and then got on the major highway east. Just as we got on it, I saw Rick standing by the high way but no sign of the van. He was just standing there! So I pulled over. Jessica didn't see him and thought I pulled over because something was wrong with the SUV. Turns out the van had died but Rick had gotten it off on an exit, left the van and Adam and had gotten a ride back to the highway so he could watch for me. He'd been standing there an hour.
We got the car towed to a service station and found out that the engine was dead. No real surprise. There were no rental cars in that city or nearby so we drove on to the next large city and got Rick a rental car so he could get Adam to camp and pick Ty up at the airport.
We went and ate at a mall food court before we went our own way. Rick got into a lot of construction so ended up not taking Adam to camp Saturday. They picked Ty up at 10:30 at the Orlando airport and then dropped Adam off Sunday a.m.
They bring their stuff in a card board box and are given large duffel bags. Adam was suppose to be on the Haiti team but didn't raise enough money and is on the home team in FL instead.
The girls and I had lost our enthusiasm for Wild Adventure by then so found Build a Bear at the mall and got sunglasses for our animals.
We got a hotel and hung out in the pool.
The next day we went to Wild Adventures for a few hours.
This is the most awesome water ride! You go down the green/blue tunnel. It doesn't look like much of a drop into the big cone part but it feels like it from the inside. You fly way up, back and forth in the cone. It feels like you are going to go clear around in a circle but obviously you don't.
