Congrats! I like the 11:30 exit. That way you can beat the lunch crowd.

So far I am sleeping in, doing yard work, lounging at the pool, etc. Am planing on traveling up the coast to Maine around Bar Harbor then back along the mountians. Some camping, visiting relatives, and seeing the sights. Will probably leave here (NC) the middle of June.
bored? no way
relaxed and stress free!!!

Excellent! It would be great to take a long drive and visit a lot of people / places without time constraints.
