The "Hellooooooo from Georgia" edition.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Hello ya’ll! Greetings from Tybee Beach, Georgia! I am running a little low on time, and my WiFi connection currently looks like this:

But I will grind this out, overcome adversity and some other third cliche... Go about it the right way.

When you drive five hours of a fourteen-hour trek, you have a lot of time to think, especially when that trek is in the dead of night. Around 3:30am, I had a lot of things on my mind. I am not sure how coherent they are because I haven’t slept in about 36 hours and counting… Some brief thoughts in this stream-of-consciousness type post.

This driving thing isn’t so bad; I actually like driving at night; Better turn on the Cardinals game; Sorry, Sis, I just want to hear the score – haha, sucker, Mike Shannon is back; DEER! ; I cannot believe I haven’t seen that many deer yet; I cannot believer KMOX is so clear here; WOOHOO JON JAY DOUBLE; ROSIE WHAT THE HECK; WHAT THE HECK; WHAT THE HECK; NOOOO I turned too early – stupid GPS; Adam Wainwright is from Georgia; I wonder what is up with Wainwright; that charity thing he is doing is really co- NOOOO I turned too early AGAIN! ; Semi-truck – get away from me, why are you going 75 mph anyway you behemoth? ; Why is there so much construction, this road is immaculate, how is it not done? ; DID I JUST TURN TOO EARLY AGAIN?!?!?!; Someone else is going to have to drive before I break the GPS.
