16-Sep-2006 -- Back to my American adventures :-) It's been a long time since my last visit 37N 119W which was over 4 years ago. A lot has happened since then, back then I worked for a dot-com and was across the Atlantic every few weeks (25 times in total), that came to an end and I went back to the world of Finance.
We return to the Sunshine state, the scene of my very first visit - 28N 82W and I am hoping to do a return visit there in a few days, as we are staying in Rotonda this is only a few miles down the road.
All of the family is here but I am going on my own as Rachel has discovered there is a Macey's in Port Charlotte and so Lynn, Rachel & Dani have decamped to go shopping.
The satnav in the hire car puts me on the correct street and I drive slowly along until I am at exatly 27N. As noted before it is on the front lawn but this time the homeowner is in!!! I have a nice talk with Scott Worram and find out that his grand mother came from Coventry just an hour's drive from where I live. Small world.
Having received permission to wander over his lawn I got all the zero's and using WAAS an accuracy of just 6 feet.
It was warm today, Scott hails from Chicago originally and has been here for over 25 years so is used to the heat but even he thought that this year it had been "too hot", today? 96.
