Another day, another road trip that will last almost exactly 2 days. The trip is 1062 miles and will spendd quite a bit of time on I-95. As a result, the pace of the trip will be about 66.7mph. Cruisin’ That will put us more than halfway to our destination, but only just. The day will be through after 533.5 miles, or thereabout. Let’s venture off to the nation’s capital, though it will be tough to leave these beaches behind.
DAY ONE (Sunday)
The southeast is presently outside of the daily thunderstorm season and currently under a nice dome of high pressure. Temperatures aren’t going to be overbearingly hot and sticky, so stopping for lunch or gas or just driving with the windows down will be pretty nice, especially in Florida. The trek will take us through Jacksonville and Savannnah and eventually to Yemassee, South Carolina, which is in the far southern part of the state.
DAY TWO (Monday)
High pressure is retreating into the ocean at this time, and by the time we leave Yemassee,, a weak area of low pressure moving into the Great Lakes and the back end of the ridge will couple to induce a southwesterly flow pumping warm air into the region. Those pleasant temperatures we saw as far north as Yemassee will filter right on up to DC. It will be a great day for checking out some monuments.
