Got up and left, heading towards Six Flags New England. It was a small park, leaving us kind of disappointed. We left early and drove two hours to the state of New York (again). Reaching our KOA, they promptly turned us away because we weren't 25. Late in the afternoon and with no place to stay, we had to drive another hour looking for a second campground.
Packing up our bags, we left our motel to New Jersey so we could hit Six Flags Great Adventure. I hate New Jersey.... Soooo much.... All the highways are Toll Roads with the costs being anywhere from $4 to $16. Great Adventure was my favorite Six Flags park. After that, we drove up into Connecticut and got another motel (the KOA was an extra two hour drive. We deemed it unnecessary).

Finally somewhere to stay for awhile. This was a friend of Tommy that he had met last summer. They had a recreational room so Tommy and I played while Alex slept. We heard yelling in the front yard about an hour after we started playing pool. Apparently, Tommy had some how beaten his cousin's wife ( who live next door) and he wanted to get back at us. How did this happen? I don't know. All I heard were death threats and something about a fight if we weren't gone by sun down. Did I mention he had a garage filled with guns? We said good bye to Tommy's friend and reserved a room from a motel. We slept for the rest of the day.

Six Flags Over Georgia was the plan. We head to the park, some rain pockets here and there. Got into the first line,extremely excited because of all the big rides. Fast forward two hours. The ride has broken down several times and shut down due to weather. We were next. Deciding to wait it out, the ride opens about 10 minutes later. We got on, excited to finally be on the ride. It shuts down again to lightning. We decided to screw the park and drive to Maryland (a full 12 hour drive). We got to our destination at about 4:30 in the morning. Guess what! No sleep as a small car is impossible to sleep in!
Leaving at 4 am, we made our way across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. We stayed at a KOA in Tallahassee. Being that we drove through thunderstorms the whole way to Tallahassee and that a warning for flash floods had been put out, we upgraded to "Kamper's Kabin". Guess what? Not a drop of rain the whole night :|

We had one race with the go-karts. [Which Alex won :( ]
We also played 3 games of laser tag. I completely pown at laser tag and destroyed everybody, coming in 1st all 3 games.
An overall good experience. Just wish they had a place like this closer to home.
After getting lost several times the night before, we eventually made it to my grandma's house in Houston. Today was a laid back day since the day before was, to say the least, eventful. *cough* lost the keys to the car *cough* fender bender *cough* Tommy lost his season pass *cough*
We decided to leave at 2 in the morning just to beat the L.A. traffic. Turns out that was the perfect as the traffic started to pick up as we were just leaving the city. We made the 13 hour drive through Arizona and into New Mexico. We stopped at a KOA (campground of america) and pitched the tent. After completing that task, we went swimming and hit the hay.
