Ryan and Megan's Central Florida Itinerary
Thursday, February 25, 2010 - Monday, March 1, 2010

Howdy, folks! Look! We posted an itinerary for this trip! I'm actually writing this from Florida because we're very late with planning this trip. We booked the flight back in October during a nice sale, and we were going to take a 'free' cruise that we got through a timeshare presentation. Unfortunately, that never really materialized, so we had to figure out what to do with Florida. Knowing that we never really explored central Florida, we decided to keep the trip, but we just never actually planned what we would do. In fact, even after spending 2 days in the sunshine state, we still don't have all our hotels booked. Anyway, we'll be updating this site in piecemeal, so just check out the tracker page to figure out where we are! :)

Once again, we will be bringing a couple webcams along with us for the ride. We'll be visiting parks and museums for most of this trip, so there won't be much to show, but whenever we can, we will try to pump new images to this page every 20 seconds - no need to open a new window or refresh!
Note that on this trip, we won't be driving very much, and when we do, it will be to the middle of nowhere, so don't expect too many updates! If the picture doesn't update, then we are out of signal or not driving. Just check back later.
