So, is that better than jumping on the turnpike for a short time and then taking 19/33 down?  I didn't know the state of the roads.  Christy

Guys and Girls,

Take I-75 South.  Below Tampa, (North of Sarasota), take hi-way 70 straight into Arcadia.

Good road all the way.

Be Safe,

Bill

Christy, you'll make better time on I-75.  The other route will take you into congestion in the Auburndale/Lakeland area and then you'd have to slow down through all the little towns along the way.

Thanks, Linda, that's exactly what I was wondering. Cheesy

  I kept looking at the map and seeing a straight shot down from Lake City, avoiding a major urban area on what could have been a Friday afternoon (if Larry hadn't turned out to be such a driving fool and hanging in there for more miles a day than I anticipated  Grin ).  On the other hand, we did have to drive state roads in Louisianna for a little while, and although it cut at least 50 miles or more off our trip, it was rough and slow-going through all those small towns.  Also, having driven places like LA and Houston, and many, many times through Dallas, (which is bumper to bumper even on slow days Tongue ), well, let's just say that we avoid congested big cities as much as possible.  Larry says he faces enough challenges in his life that trying to find a 60' opening on Hwy 635 on a Friday afternoon just isn't his bag of tea! Wink

 I figured someone from the area would have a better feel for whether it was worth dropping down through Winter Haven or not.    You answered my question and I guess I'll make it easy on him and stick to Hwy 75.  So, next question. . . does anyone know of a good truck/bus wash?Huh? It's pretty bad when you have to put on rubber gloves just to open the car door! Cheesy
