After getting the truck fixed, I was in a great mood. I did not know how much the concerns with the truck were affecting me. First thing the next morning, I got a call from Shiver Diesel. Eric had left his very nice Snap-On flashlight under the hood of my truck. Those lights are very expensive, so we decided to take a trip to Tallahassee to return the light and do a bit of sight seeing. We drove down Highway 90 to get off of the interstate. We were rewarded by the town of Quincy, Florida.

This is a recreation of the mission that existed on this site. The primary inhabitants were the Apalachee indians. There was a film in the visitor center and a museum. We then walked the grounds and looked at the structures that have been built to show us how the people lived 300+ years ago. They had a number of people that were dressed in period attire and tried to stay in character for the time and place.

|It felt even bigger when you went inside.|
It was an interesting experiance and at $5 per adult it was worth it.
We drove around town for a while finding a Best Buy to get a new external backup drive. We drove right through the campus of Florida State University. Then we saw the old State Capitol. Kim got a quick shot:
I spent most of the rest of the 5 days that we spent at Eastbank Campground taking pictures and hiking around the area.
