03/08/2008 Day 1 - Driving
We left Central IL at 7am and traveled all day. The drive was uneventful really. We encountered snow in Kentucky which in some places the interstate was down to one lane but the traffic wasn't that bad. We left the GA visitors center in North GA around 4pm to pick up information on the GA Aquarium and places to stay in downtown Atlanta for our trip back. The entire state of GA (North to South) has road construction but again no trouble there. I had brought cold cuts, chips and such for our trip so we ate lunch on the move. We were 3 hours away from Orlando and decided to just get there. We had the 1 hour time change from IL to FL then we had to add in the time change of Daylight Savings Time, so we lost 2 hours. We stayed at the Howard Johnson in Leesburg, FL and arrived about 2am (in actuality it was only midnight).
