    Surprise!

    I could have titled this "That Time We Went to Florida and Didn't Tell Anyone" but I didn't want to plagiarize @Doc Disney. ;)

    @Longers, you were right ~ we are sneaking in another trip before April. :D (I could not leave you in suspense until April, @blgauger!)

    @amjt660 told me to get back to WDW soon ~ and I didn't want him to go through TR withdrawal. :joyfull:

    And both @LisaBelle and @MegRuss626 asked me to "keep 'em coming!"

    So here we go again......

    Believe it or not this trip was birthed a mere three weeks ago. I was looking at Em's school calendar and noticed she had a long weekend for President's Day. I jokingly said, "Road Trip!" and before I knew it I was booking a room, making ADRs and choosing FPs.

    Em requested we keep our plans secret ~ she's tired of the "You're going AGAIN??!!" comments ~ and the clandestine element made our anticipated adventure that much more exciting.

    Well, the cat's out of the bag now. :cat: (Speaking of cats, Woody is lovingly caring for Poly and Kona in my absence. And yes, he was "in" on our secret.)

    Em and I will attempt a duo LIVE report. You'll discover the trip deets as we go along.

    @Tony the Tigger, you totally picked the wrong day to go to MK....you should have stuck with Friday!

    @bee, too bad we're not staying at CSR this time....we'd pop by!

    "Lovingly" might be a stretch. We've reached agreements on how to tolerate each other during your absence.

    We hope to do it within 8 hours with stops. (We don't drive at warp speed like @lostpro9het!)

    8 miles over the speed limit gets me there in less than 7.5 hours with one stop from the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. I've adopted the Ron Popeil philosophy when it comes to driving to the bubble and cruise control:
