根据google地图,第一天的逃亡计划是从Miami 开到 Jacksonville, 全程339 miles。预计正常用时为5小时,但实际逃亡时间总共花费了9小时。

Based on google map, the escape plant of first day is from Miami to Jacksonville. The total distance is 339 miles. The routine time for it takes 5 hours. In fact, we spent 9 hours on the way.

清早给租车公司打电话,得知,我们这辆车如果直接开回indiana要多600块的异地换车费,对比costcotravel重新订新车只需要200块的价格,我们果断做出了选择。早早收拾,撤退到机场换车。租车大楼内门庭若市,很多人刚到迈阿密得知飓风,显得一脸茫然。好不容易办好了手续拿到了收据取车。停车场的指引小哥说,你随便拿吧。再晚就没车了。事实真的就是明明有很多人在还车,可是车还是一辆辆的减少。许多人拖着箱子小跑着,抓着了辆车就把箱子往里塞,点上火就撤。我一下慌了身,捡着辆jeep立马开走。安全座椅,行李箱,饮用水,零食,推车,所有东西把小小的后备箱塞得满满当当的。

I call the car rental in the morning and know that we will pay 600 usd more if we drive the car we initially rent back to Indiana directly. Compared to Costco, we only need to pay 200 usd in total to get a new car. We determine to choose the second choice. After dressing up, we got to the airport early. The car rental center is so busy. So many people just got the news about hurricane when they got off the flight. After I check in, the assist at car parking center told me: just go ahead to get whatever you wanna. You may get nothing when you come late. The fact is that, there are so many people are returning the car, but the total amount is still decreasing. So many people are running with the luggage and squeeze them into their nearlist car and leave. I am nervous. I just randomly choose a JEEP and put car seat, luggage, drink, snack, and else into the ajar.

10点出发。沿着95号公路向北。告别阳光灿烂的迈阿密。第一站是佛罗里达最北边的jacksonville。这儿居然是这个州最大的城市。我们直接定位了一家当地的中餐厅。(chef chen). 途径奥兰多,总共预计时间是5小时,下午三点到达。开始两小时的路,并不是很堵,小段小段间歇出现的黄色区域,真正行驶过去也并没有太多车辆的滞留。只是我们惊讶的发现,车轱辘飞快的把我们往前带,距离不断的缩短,但是预计到达时间却一再的变长。一路上我下去了几个高速公路出口加油,发现大多加油站都空了。店主便直接关门歇业。而小部分有油的加油站直接排起了长龙。加油站的小哥像交警一样指挥着四面八方的来车。我在一家7-11补满了油。这里的91, 93号高级油已经空了。

We leave at 10am and head toward route 95,saying goodbye to sunny Miami. Our first destination is the north most city of Miami, Jacksonville, and it is the biggest one. I directly navigate a local Chinese restaurant (chef chen) there. And this drive will pass Orlando and the estimated time is 5 hours. The first 2 hours drive is not very crowded. Some area is yellow on the map but not too much delay. What is astonishing for us is that the distance is decreasing but the remained time is still increasing. We get off the highway from some exits and found that most of the oil station is off. A small bunch of stations who have oil, all have long queue. The staff their guide the traffic like policeman. We get refilled at a 7-11, see the figure. All the 91 and 93 pumps are down.

午饭后,我们发现之前蓝色的路已经被密密麻麻的红黄替换了。google给出了距离更远,但时间更短的乡间路段。才发现,原来佛罗里达也有许多美丽的田园风光。

After lunch, we found that the routes in front of us is all red. Google map gives out the new local way with shorter time and longer distance. We saw that there are so many beautiful villages in Florida.

又遇到加油站,二话不说,直接把油箱加满。一路上有很多有趣的细节。逆向的路上几乎没什么车。有时出现的,全都是电力抢修的维护车。

We meet another gas station and get refill without hesitation. There are so many interest detail on the way. We found the opposite way have few cars rather than the electricity maintenance truck.

5

有些人选择用摩托车逃亡。不知道是何缘故。

Some people choose to escape using Motorcycle. I don't know why.

6

许多美国人开着房车逃跑。。把私家车挂在后面。仿佛逃亡成为了一次欢乐的旅行。

So many US people drive a RV and hanging their smaller car in the back. The escape seems like a happy journey.

7

有的车后背都挂满了红色的油桶。有的皮卡车甚至整个后斗都放满了油箱。

Some cars have so many oil buckets in their back. The trunk of Some pickups are even full of this kind of buckets.

8

许多改装车在路上疯狂的跑着。他们大多有着超大轮胎,高架车身。

Some modified cars with high wheels are running crazy.

晚上七点,比预计时间足足晚了四小时,我们紧赶慢赶的到了jacksonville。chef wu是一家只有6个桌子的中餐,口味很棒。

Finally, we arrive 4 hours late at 7 pm. The Chef Wu is a good and authentic restaurant with only 6 tables.

10

饱餐一顿,我们到酒店住下了。妻子抽空定好了亚特兰大的酒店。行车路线显示还是五个小时,这条路线可以横穿亚特兰大的downtown。这里有老鹰队的飞利浦中心。和佐治亚理工。)。 还有可口可乐的中心。想着想着,我不知什么时候就睡下了。

After dinner, we check in at hotel. My wife books the hotel in Atlanta. GPS shows it is a 5 hours driving way and can cross DT of Atlanta. They have Philips center for Atlanta hawks and Geog Tech. Coca cola center as well. Gradually, I fall asleep.

第二天的逃亡路线是从Jacksonville到Atlanta, 全程375 miles. 原本预计的正常时间是6小时。最后实际逃亡时间为12小时

The second day way is from Jacksonville to Atlanta. The total distance is 375 miles. The estimated time is 6 hours. Finally we use 12 hours.

11

前一天油箱不满,我一大早趁着妻子和母亲照顾女儿,出来加油,一跑才发现周围四个加油站都已经空空了。所有的邮箱都贴着封条。唯有柴油还有储备。最后我不死心,又绝望的绕回了离酒店最近的bp加油站。我蛮问了门口抽烟的黑哥。小黑哥说,这里不会再有油了。他们根本得不到补给。他们马上就要关门。不过他说离这里不远的另一家bp有。他好心的在google地图上给我指路,并帮我打电话确认。结果我很幸运的加满了油箱。离开的时候,我听到有人抱怨着,有的station又空了。兴高采烈的回到酒店,收拾好八点出发,妻子说,刚刚退房的时候,有许多人还陆续的打电话来总台咨询。得到的都是爆满的消息。前台小哥特别无奈的说,再过一天,他们可能也要疏散了。出发前摸了一张报纸,头版醒目的写着:governor warns: we can’t save you.

The gas tank is not full. So I come out early to get refill and found that 4 stations around hotel are off. Diesel only. I don't wanna give up and ask the man sitting in front of BP. He told me there is no more gas, they are closing due to short supply. But he kindly told me that there is another gas station not far away has gas. And he called they to double-check. I was so lucky to get oil. I get back to hotel at 8am and my wife told me that when she checked out before, so many people called in to ask for rooms, but they have been full. The reception said they may be evacuated soon. I grab a piece of newspaper when I leave: the headline show: governor warns: we can’t save you.

12

万万没有想到,这条预计5小时的道路,最后足足走了12小时。以至于前三小时都白走了。一路都是疯狂的大堵车。

I cannot believe that this estimated 5 hour way spend me 12 hours finally. The first 3 hours never change the GPS status. The traffic jam is mad.

13

途径一个位于的加油站休息区。三家加油站都空了。很多车在加油站附近停靠着。他们没有油了,没地方去。司机把引擎盖打开着。车随意摆放。小孩下车在草地上玩耍。大人们绝望的听天由命。而旁边的麦当劳洗手间挤满了人,女生把男生洗手间的门都快踩塌了。麦当劳是唯一的食物。

When we pass a rest area, we found three stations are down. So many cars are pulling over there without oil. They looks so desperate. The neibouring McDonald is packed with people. Female almost break the restroom of male. McDonald is only food.

14

交通的拥堵造成了大量的事故车辆,堆积在路边。

The traffic jam leads to accidents. The down cars are pulling over on the side.

15

这一路印象最为深刻的是在临近亚特兰大2小时的高速上,我们突然发现了express line open to all traffic的警示牌。因为这意外收获,我们节约了至少1个小时的时间。快速通道几乎没有什么车。并没有多少车看到这样的告示,哪怕一路上都不断的有大幅电子屏幕提醒着。

The most impressive moment happens when 2 hour away from Atlanta. We suddenly see the electronic sign of express line open to all traffic. That is amazing. It saves us 1 hour at least. But unfortunately, not so many cars see it even there is more than one signs.

16

晚上八点:我们终于迈过了亚特兰大的滚滚车流。

We arrive at Atlanta at 8pm. It is still busy here.

17

入住了亚特兰大北Roswell的酒店。再三思量,我们定位下一个点是 Kentucky的cave city。这里有闻名世界的猛犸洞穴国家公园。

We check out at Roswell. And determine to arrive cave city in Kentucky tomorrow. They have world-famous cave national park.

逃亡第三天是从Atlanta 到cave city,全程为 337 miles。逃亡正常时间为5小时,最后逃亡时间为6小时。

The escape third day is from Atlanta to cave city. The distance is 337 miles. The estimated time is 5 hours. Finally we use 6 hours.

18

想着原本此刻应该已经躺在家里了。我们还是继续踏上了征程。飓风偏离了原本的方向,往佛罗里达内陆侵袭。我们继续走我们的,从Roswell出发,计划是今天穿过田纳西的Nashville,夜宿肯塔基的cave city。这次终于,google地图的时间特别给面子的均匀跳动着。
I continue to travel north. It seems like hurricane is attacking Florida now. Departing from Roswell, we plan to leavel Nashville and arrive at Cave city. This time there is not too much delay on the way.

19

Cave city 旁边的Mammoth Cave national park 猛犸洞国家公园里有丰富的地下地质地貌。但是大多数tour都需要提前预定。我们在下午三点到达。发现只剩下唯一的一个mammoth passage tour,在下午三点半。成人一人七刀,婴儿用carrier可以参观。

Mammoth Cave national park is located at cave city which obtain diverse kinds of geographic characters. However, most of the tours need to be booked in advanced. We arrived at 3pm and only one mammoth passage tour have vacancies. The price for adult is 7 usd. And the infant carrier is accessible.

20

去酒店的途中偶遇路边的小鹿。一想到明天就回家了。还是很开心的。

And we meet a nice deer on the way back to hotel. I feel happy when I think I can go home tomorrow.

21

最后一天的逃亡是从cave city到west Lafayette, 全程269 miles。正常行驶时间为4小时,最后逃亡时间为5小时.。今天的路程比较舒服。想着今天就能到家了。真开心。脖子的僵硬,手肘的酸痛仿佛又可以忍受。

The last day of escape is from cave city to west Lafayette. The distance is 269 miles. The regular time is 4 hours. Finally we used 5 hours. The drive today is ok. I feel so happy and the sour neck and elbow feels like better.

22

电视大屏幕还在不断播放着灾难的惨象。再打开youtube上面的直播视频。一片惨不忍睹。

The TV is still playing the tragedy of hurricane. The the live in youtube is still horrible.

23

途中进了一家麦当劳。Cashier老奶奶得知我们从佛罗里达赶回来。特地送我了我们2个muffin topping。

On the half way, I stop by a McDonald. The lady cashier knew that we are from Florida and give us 2 muffin topping for free.

24

小女儿看着我吃沙拉,也津津有味。

My little daughter interests in my salad.

25

在家附近。我又看到了一辆从挂着佛罗里达拍照的房车。或许他们感谢飓风,让一家人有机会这样旅行到这么远的地方。

When we are close to home, I see another car from Florida. Maybe they will thank the hurricane who offer them an opportunity to travel together.

26

傍晚我们终于到家。感谢一路辛勤的小jeep。感谢辛苦照顾女儿的妻子和母亲,感谢给予我一路各种支持的朋友们,感谢陌生人的鼎力相助。感谢这段时光没有白白度过。

We finally arrive at home by afternoon. Thanks for the Jeep, for my wife and mother, for my daughter, for my friends supporting me, as well as the stranger on the way. I really appreciate this period of time.
