This summer we decided to take a long road trip for our summer vacation. I had mixed feelings going into our trip (lots of hours on the road, different locations every couple of days, meals in restaurants, etc.), and the early part of the trip confirmed some of my fears. We were on the road late a couple of nights, and we had to drive a fair amount in rain. The payoff, of course, is that we got to make some pretty great stops along the way. We saw the state capitals for Mississippi and Alabama, we walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL, and we walked through historical Tuskegee University. All of our back road excursions had us arriving in Savannah after 1 AM, but it was worth it to see so many interesting historical sites. You can see some pictures from our adventures in our online album.
