Day 13 - St. Andrews St. Pk to Somewhere About 450mi South
God did it rain last night!!!! It was a deluge until about 5AM!!! Our tent was literally floating in all the standing water! Ugh!! I had awakened 3 times during the night to sop up all the water on the inside of the tent....AND....on top of that, I had to piss all 3 times! Damn!! Everything and everybody was wet. Everything! At about 6AM, I finally got Dylan up and said, "let's get the hell outta here!"
Everything was packed up wet and nasty! We made a beeline for the freeway and headed South. We drove 450 miles and found a cheap Motel 6 room in Punta Gorda, FL. $40, free HBO and a laundry available! As we speak, I'm washing all the wet clothes , drinking a few beers, waiting for the pizza guy to deliver a "replacement pizza" for the wrong one he delivered and watching it thunder and lightning and pour rain outside. Ha ha, I'm inside and DRY TONITE!!!
