"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."-Eleanor Roosevelt
On August 14,1999, my dad and I left Los Angeles and set out on a trip across the United States. Determined
to make it to Florida in four days, while still allowing for sight-seeing, we decided to drive to El Paso, Texas
the first day...
After a long day of driving through California, Arizona, and New Mexico, we arrived in El Paso. We decided we
would take it easy the next day and drive to San Antonio to have some fun. If I ever have to live in Texas, I will
opt for Austin or San Antonio. We had a blast!
We had to make up for lost time the next day, so we left San Antonio at 5:00 am with Pensacola, Florida as our next
destination. The rest of Texas was barren, making for a long drive. After that, we briefly drove through Louisiana, Mississippi,
and Alabama. We finally arrived in Pensacola that afternoon. We decided to make the short drive to Gainesville
the next morning.
