Tonight I am packing for a trip to Florida.
The Packing Formula has been solved and Clifford is currently almost packed. I am only going to be gone for five nights, so Clifford won’t be quite as heavy this trip. It means I can pack a few extra books 🙂
The last time I went to Florida it was to Miami. While there I had a nice Cuban dinner. See: Dinner and Sunset in Miami
I am also remembering another post I wrote then. It was titled Internet MIA. I thought the title was clever as I was staying at a hotel by the airport and the internet was pretty much missing in action. Of course the airport code for Miama International is MIA. However, it is one of my least viewed posts. Probably because I only used one picture since the internet service was so horrible.
This time I will be in a different part of Florida. I will be teaching for two days in a small city north of Tampa. Then on the weekend I will go to Temple Terrace and stay with my friend Luke and his family.
This is bringing back good memories of my trips to Isreal with Luke the last two years and another one that is coming up in June. This year I will not be At the Dig, but will be just on a tour of the country along with a handful of friends.
I am also thinking of the last time I was in Tampa. It was about 25 years ago and was just an overnight trip to visit a cheese factory and fix a packaging machine.
Now to finish packing and get some sleep for the long trip tomorrow.
