Had both of my Grandparents lose their battles with Cancer within a day of each other so I took some time off to drive down to Florida to see them off.

Took a couple pics on the way there and back. No pro shots here, just some plain old cell pics with an HDR app.

Enjoy!

I'm not up on my history or anything like that, so don't flame...but what does the 9:01 and 9:03 signify?

Was that times bombs were dropped or something?

Sorry for your loss, seems like it was a good trip otherwise.

Ivan @ Southwest Speed 06-17-2011 11:39 AM

Thanks for the consideration y'all....they were great people and lived full lives! Loved em tremendously.

The Oklahoma City Bombing took place at exactly 9:02.

So the two walls represent the innocence of the "before" and the tragedy of the "after."

There is a constantly running bed of water in between the two walls.

Must see on everybody's Bucket List. Very amazing.

My condolences to you and your family. Thanks for sharing all the pictures.

I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. I cant think a better car to take on a trip like this. Finishing it off with a Texas sunset is the way to do it.
To bad you didnt go to Caddilac ranch in amarillo.

Again very sorry to hear for your loss.

LittleMT 06-17-2011 12:32 PM

nice images, and what a road trip....

why do you have a check engine light?

1Camaro2SS 06-17-2011 10:19 PM

Awesome pics and sorry to hear about your loved ones.

The photo of your girls enjoying ice cream in your camaro was my favorite. My boys and girls would do the same thing.

Thanks as well. We went by the Caddy Ranch but it was pitch dark and the girls were crashed out pretty good. We saved it for the next trip! :D

CEL was going on and off all trip....musta been that sweet 93 Octane nectar I got to put in her. Since NM has the crappiest 90 octane I've ever experienced. :facepalm:

I was switching between tunes on the way down.....interesting to see how the car drives under different conditions and tunes.

My fav too. They were awesome on the trip. My youngest would change spark plugs on an LT1 for Ice Cream. She loves it.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. :)

Just got back in from flyin back (again). Had the service yesterday AM at Jacksonville National Cemetary and it was great.

Wish I woulda drove again, but then again, flying is so much faster. LOL Was a fantastic drive earlier this month.

Ditto! I hit up about a dozen folks on the way down and back. Got to see and meet a few. Very cool.

I plan on doing that trip again and will most likely annouce it prior to so that I can try to have the opportunity to meet more fine Camaro5.com folks.
