The FMCA International Area rally (INTO) was held in Tallahassee. We left home a few days early so we could stop in Bradenton and visit with friends. That was great! As Nick Russell wrote - it was like a mini rally. That's because the 8 of us know each other quite well from just working at rallies year after year, fairgrounds after fairgrounds.

We left Bradenton and went to Tallahassee where the FMCA INTO rally was being held. Guess what? That's where Chris and Charles Yust were headed also! See what I mean? We debated about what route to take, but decided on the easy, freeway route up I-75 rather than the prettier, but stop-and-go driving up the coast. I really like Google Maps Location History to show me exactly what we did. If it were up to my memory ... I might be telling you we went up the coast road. I wrote an article about Google's Location services
using this day as my example:
Some people are disdainful of traveling on the major highways, saying that you miss all the beauty only seen on the "blue" roads. I disagree, there is plenty of beauty to be seen on the big highways, and you're more relaxed - no stop-and-go, no oncoming traffic.
They parked us in a field just across the street from where our booth, and most of our seminars would be held. Very Convenient.
|It's become a habit for us to take a selfie with most every seminar|
|These people are in our smartphone photography workshop where we make them take pictures!|
Here's a little Google Photos video of the rally:
Here's the scene near where we had dinner. A great place called Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille. (how do I remember that? I don't. But Google Location history does!)
|Since we were in Tallahassee - where I went to college at FSU - we had to go to campus and see if I recognized anything!|
I found these old photos of mine in this same location:
