Epic Wrong Turn

Just so you don't have to learn the hard way, like I did, when the National Parks Service calls a route "scenic", it actually means "you are goin' to see all there is to see because you will be lucky if you actually make it out alive." Just keep that in mind*.

So, through a series of unfortunate events, I find myself back in a rental car. The downside is that I'm burning through the old travel budget much faster than I had hoped*. The positive side is that I get to explore the non-greater Miami part of Florida.

Once such leg of this "exploration" came in the form of an epic wrong turn. It took about 1.5 hours to get through 10-15 miles of this. Luckily, the scenery was beautiful. The wildlife wasn't so bad either. Now that I've survived the gators, the only thing I have to worry about is what the rental company is going to say. Perhaps it is time to look into a new form of transportation*...

I highly recommend an air boat ride. They are cheesy but lots of fun!
