If you're going the way that we did - sounds like it - be prepared for A LOT of bridges from here to Orlando. OMG! I am not a fan of bridges either, so I understand. Did the MS River at like 3 in the morning, horrifying, though I'm sure it was more terrifying in daylight!
you're making great time, good for you. I didn't like LA had "more sin" than some of the other states we were in... like California.
