Time to break out the skis and ice skates!

Sure wish we were in that empty space next to you!

We had sent for Disney World promo material to show to the in-laws we hoped to bring down with us if we could have made it - and were disappointed to see so much emphasis on the attractions and activities for kids - and so little for adults - do you still find Epcot to be well oriented to adults?

Mickey and friends are fine in the other DW areas - but we have really enjoyed the more mature adult presentations provided by Epcot - hope that still holds true...

It's all my fault.

I must have brought it down with me when I arrived yesterday. I'm 8 miles west of WDW.

Gary,

You are right about the marketing folks at Disney targeting the material towards the younger families, but I think it might be because that group could the ones requesting the material and viewing it so much. Our family (family with children) is probably in that targeted demographic and I know my daughter must have watched that vacation planning at Disney DVD 100 times as the trip got closer.

I do feel there are things for adults though. Certainly Epcot with it's world showcase of countries around the lake attracts the mature audience, but all of the parks do have things that are interesting to all ages. I've had a great time this week chatting to various folks I've met here in the campground, and on the busses getting around the Disney properties. Interestingly, I've probably seen nearly as many couples without children as those with kids.

Last night for example, we wandered through the streets of the Osborne family spectacle of lights and were amazed by the display. Pictures just don't do justice to the real thing. There was more of the older crowd admiring the lights than the young families.

Well, at least the chilly weather will be gone tomorrow. I just saw the forecast and it looks like tomorrow is back to the mid-70's My daughter and I just came back from a long walk around the campground and it sure is nice to be able to take an evening stroll even if it is a bit chilly. Next week at home, we'll probably have snow......

Not quite yet. We had Indian Summer last wknd (temps topping 70) & the weatherman is forecasting it again for this wknd. Although it isn't the same as being in FL, it'll do for up here this time of yr.

Joe: enjoy your Fla visit but remember you still have to go back home. Could always stop here in Beaufort SC for a day or so to extend the time off. Now you know why we leave in Oct for SC and Fla in Jan (when it gets too cold here). See ya next summer up north. Lee

The visit to Florida was wonderful, but way to short. The family and I pulled out of the campground Saturday and headed home. Particularly along I-95 and in Georgia we were about the only RV headed North. I-95 was flooded with RV's of all sorts heading South as the snowbirds begin the annual migration to Florida.

Speaking of I-95....what's the deal in Georgia??? It seemed like half the state was under construction.

Saturday we drove from Orlando to Fort Chisswell, VA for a brief overnight stop then pulled out again Sunday morning and arrived home in the early afternoon. It sure doesn't take long to lose that "vacation feeling" sitting back in the office looking drab overcast sky we have here.

This week is going to be the unpleasant task of emptying the motorhome and winterizing it for the year.....Ugh. Oh well!! Just have to start counting down the days until next season

It's one of Georgia's trademarks.

Usually all the other states on I95 have lots of construction, but not this time.

Not just Georgia - all OVER the USA - saw LOTS of it between Oregon and Ohio on our recent trip.

You hafta remember that the Interstate System was originally built and maintained as a method of rapid military movement and deployment. The powers that be, under current and expected social and economical conditions sees the need to upgrade and maintain the main travel arteries of the country for proper control of the masses - and China wants the same capabilities available when the USA defaults on the Chine$e loan$, and they foreclose...

And yeah, the above is only about half in jest...

Maybe that is the case that all the other states are usually under construction, but wern't now so I noticed Georgia more. Man, it was a stretch though of narrow lanes that folks wouldn't pass. All it took was two vehicles that wouldn't pass each other to really back things up.

Others may have more information, but the 1000, 1100, and 1700 loops are all improved. Likely other loops have been worked on as well. I think some loops were closed in early fall as we repeatedly tried to get reservations and couldn't. Suddenly in mid October it seems like there was all kinds of availability for periods that had previously been unavailable. We had no problems making reservations for days in November, December, and January.
