I spent my entire life wanting to be a TV personality. Famous. I guess that is every Childs dream, so I thought it was. I took it to the extreme, as always. I remember when I was as kid, my Mom was so upset with me.
I had three desk lamps plugged into extensions cords and clamped them on to our family trampoline I covered them with colored handkerchiefs to make stage lights. They shined on me like a ray of Janet Jacksons concert lights. She (Mom) came from the house and said, basically " Why are you being a spectacle?" As far as I was concerned no one could see me because it was dark and I was in my own world. If I remember correctly the song of MS. Jackson's was "Control" ironically. I was ordered to stop and get in the house by Mom. I am sure she was embarrassed by it all. I mean she had a son in her front yard on the trampoline twisting his ass and flipping all over that "stage".
Looking back on it and where I am from ( Big Gulley, Tennessee) I…
Coming from the south still on US19N. I dry camped in a truck stop last night. Learning to slow down and enjoy the ride I found myself taking a left off the highway to discover something new. I will forever be looking for that "Yankeetown Experince", tho.
This mornings left turn brought me to Horseshoe Beach. It's an Island. It look like the suburbs of Key West. The Dixie County timberlands guide you through and too Horseshow Beach. There isn't much along the way from US19 but when your are here, you arrive and you know it.
I was impressed with all the signage. The couple businesses that are here really sock it to ya coming in. Almost like arriving in Vegas or any other tourist driven spot. Signs for the Marina, LIVE Bait, Rentals, Jake's Pub and I think I saw a Post Office sign. I look for those for my friends Lisa H and Cindy L back home. Anyway.
I drove to the end of the road just to see where it goes. Well it went to the end. I posted a video this morning on …
This is my first blog post after my hospitality management gig. I loved that place and the job. I had no idea I had it in me. That was like 6 months straight of National Championship Play-Offs. For the record I didn't wanna leave Palm Harbor when I did. For that matter I didn't wanna leave ClearwaterFlorida when I did either.
Now The Wagon and I head North and the only thing I can think of is that there is snow and freezing weather North and on this night it was gonna be very unseasonably cold in Florida from the North to the South and as far as I knew the East to the West.
Since I really wanna head West on my new journey I decided to brave it and head North because that is the direction I will have to go. You know, saving money and being travel productive. Leaving Palm Harbor, Florida around 5 in the evening and not wanting to blow all my cash in fuel right away I set a goal for Crystal River, Florida.
Once I arrived in Crystal River I used an App on my phone to locate…
