Re: Goooood Morning SHR- Saturday

It's been many years since I drove through Florida, but there was a ton of toll road's then. I'm sure HH and j will be able to let you know.

My question is: Are there lots of toll roads there or something because that's what's on our directions, toll roads.

There are some toll roads, but can you be more specific where your directions take you on toll roads?

Universal Studios is near Orlando and the highway from Orlando to Tampa is I-4, a non-toll road. From Tampa you can get to any of the beaches, like Clearwater Beach, using no toll roads.

My general answer is that there aren't that many toll roads and there are ways around those.

What "place" gave you the directions and what toll roads did they put you on?

If you want, send me a PM with the details and I can help you more.

If you are coming from Ohio and going to Orlando (Universal Studios) first, then yes, the Florida Turnpike (toll road) from I-75 in Wildwood to the Orlando area would be the fastest route. That's probably the toll road in the directions. But from Orlando to Tampa is not a toll road and if you will be leaving from the Tampa area going back to Ohio, then you would take I-75 back out of Florida which is no toll.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR- Memorial Day

We have not seen the sun since the 17th. They said that we would have sun all day on Sunday...yea, what does the weather idiot know. Then it happened, I woke up this morning to a bright orange ball in the sky thinking what is that...haven't seen it in so long was beginning to forget what it looked like.

So what do I have now...a major bright lite headache.

It is also Sun Screen Day

My question is: Are there lots of toll roads there or something because that's what's on our directions, toll roads.

After living in Orlando and Central FL for about 30 years, I can tell you that generally, there aren't too many toll-roads that you can't avoid in Orlando and FL. Around Universal, there are a couple, but you can easily avoid those without adding much time at all to your commute. When you use "maps" online, just plug in "avoid toll-roads" and do the comparison.
The one like HH mentioned that you may have to take is the FL Turnpike if you're coming off of I-75 to Orlando. You HAVE to take that one because the alternative is too time consuming, thus causing a bigger expense in gas as well.
One last thing...avoid I-4 from 3:30 to 6:30pm and from 7 to 9am...even in the tourist areas around Universal and Disney. Orlando is still under-developed in terms of lanes on the highways and the rush-hours there can be brutal. Particularly if there's an accident, since there aren't many alternatives for those who don't know the surface streets.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR- Tuesday

Thanks for advise on Florida.

Burgers are no more tonight. I would get the real lean stuff & would get it for $4.49. Today, they raised the price up to $5.99 a pound. Ground round is now what I use to pay for the extra lean 96 % stuff. They can keep their burger meat.

I even let them keep their 10 pounds of potatoes. They're tossing in bad ones, in each & every bag they have for sale.......I looked at them all. They wasn't marked down either like they usually would be. Needless to say, the store kept them too.

Watermelon, I haven't bought a whole one this yr & at the prices & the cut ones are in the store, I won't be buying any of those any time soon either.

Last week I got some of the best corn on the cob for 10 cents an ear. Today (this week), it's 10 ears for $3. I didn't buy anymore.

Green beans looked like they needed pitched out.

So tonight it's eye of round steaks. Glad I have a few ears of corn left over from last week.
