Hell Drive

Well, the drive to Miami was a nightmare.

We took I-95. That wasn't the problem. I-95 was in decent shape with little traffic or construction ... until we hit West Palm Beach.

We got a late start, which put us approaching West Palm at about 4:00 pm. Then the rush-hour traffic and road construction began.

An hour later, I got off 95 in downtown Miami. Using only my ten-year-old memory of the streets of downtown, I thought I could get us to the hotel without specific directions. I would probably have been successful had the streets not been blocked off for the race. That threw me off completely.

Anyway, we stopped, Charlotte got directions and we made it to the Marriott Biscayne Bay Hotel by 6pm.
