So, we made it to Savannah in one piece. The drive was easy and uneventful except for the semi that actually ran us off the road. Good thing Michelle’s husband is the most mellow driver on the planet. After Michelle and I freaked out, Dan said, “what’s the worst that could happen?” I guess “death” was the first thing that went through my mind.
Other than that, we’ve only been here a day but this is what I’ve learned so far:
1. Food is cheap in Savannah. $4 burgers? WTF? I pay $10 for a burger with less toppings in Orlando. We ate dinner at Cheddars last night and ordered edamame because it was $4 and chips and salsa because it was $2. We didn’t even want them. But it’s like Savannah is drawing us in with its cheap food prices.
2. Anyone that hears you are going to Savannah tells you to say hello to Paula Deen. For the record, I WILL NOT SAY HELLO TO PAULA DEEN. It’s like telling people you got married in Vegas and everyone assumes you got married by Elvis. (Yes, I was married in Vegas, and no, it wasn’t by Elvis.)
3. I thought the thermostat in my hotel room wasn’t working. Nope. It’s working fine. The maintenance guy that came in my room and looked at me like I’m a complete idiot told me that. I’m supposed to use this one by the window.
I suppose this is decoration then?
This morning, after our free hotel breakfast of cute mini-waffles, Michelle, Dan, and I headed down to the Expo. We
got a little lost on the way took the scenic route.
Once we did arrive, holy sweet Moses there were a lot of people there.
The expo is staying open at least an hour longer than planned because of delays, probably in the parking area, because when we left the cars were seriously backed up and we were glad we got there when we did.
Packet pick-up was really fast despite all the people. We had to throw some elbows to get near all the vendors with free stuff. I was hoping to find a bunch of cute things to blow all my money on, but I couldn’t find anything. At least the race shirt is really cute.
After the expo, we ate a late lunch at Mellow Mushroom and now it’s already time to get ready for dinner.
This marathon thing is starting to feel more real!
