We were going to fly till I checked prices, Ive been monitoring flights from Bwi & Philly into Daytona or Orlando..Any where from 300-500 per ticket!!! Im not prepared to spend 1000 on airfare to florida..Then we have to rent a car, then book a hotel, then eat for a week..Lets not forget, that Pods wants 5500 for moving & storage, and our settlement here is slated for March 30, but I think that will change since the guy buying this place works at Homeland Security and has been out of communications for the past 10 days.

Its ridiculous for Fl to charge those kinds of prices..

Oh, how funny I went thru AARP and rented a car in Md, Harford County for 141.00 a week unlimited mileage.

Just this past May when went to Fl to seal the deal about moving there, we got flight, hotel and rental car 850.00 for 2..Im a miser when it comes to trips..Wait til the Mrs finds out that my goal is to drive straight thru..See I do suffer from road rage pecker

You can figure about 11hours of driving, I'd guess. Took me 17.5. Be safe!

Worse trip in my life one_finger_salute

I got fucked twice in South Carolina, I said hey what the fuck and stopped for gas at South of the Border, 3.69 a gallon...Filled up hit back on 95 and dam it gas was 3.49...Then the salt in the wound, we stop at a hotel, get settled in its 11:50pm..Put the luggage up, tell the mrs Im going to the kwik mart for a couple of beers, I'll be back....Grab my beers, but them up on the counter, and get the strangest look from the young hillbilly punks that are waiting on me..They tell me its 3 after 12 so that makes it Sunday, and there are no alcohol sales on Sunday in South Carolina..

FUCK YOU South Carolina..And I mean it

Thats a whole different ballgame..Have to have 2 weeks of Fl paychecks before we can start a contract on a home, so house hunting has been put on the back burner..1. Jobs, 2. place to rent..

Renting sounds like an excellent option. Time to look around and time to learn more about different locations, etc.

Looks like temps back home should be pretty nice this coming week - 60's+.
