In less than three weeks we drove 5500+ miles and visited 16 localities, taking hospitality in 15 of them. It has been years since we visited saints and churches east of the Mississippi. Steve spend almost all of his first 21 years of his life living in Tallahassee. He graduated from Florida State University.  It was our intention to post a photo or two and a report of our visit for every place we stop. Thanks to all the saints and especially those in our group for remembering us in their prayers and thanks for all the fellowship we had with the saints along the way. The following was our schedule. The side bar of this blog includes what we saw and enjoyed. Excuse that some items were not posted in chronological order--we sometimes up-loaded photos from our phone before we were able to find time to type in our comments, our enjoyment from the places we visited.
