Off to Naples, FL

Post  ColtsKurt on 4/30/2015, 8:17 pm

Flying down May 9.  Driving my mom's car back to Indy after dropping her off at the airport to fly back home on May 11.

Took some convincing and the docs putting her on O2 24/7 for her and Roger to agree to flying.

Tell ya what… that Cadillac Sedan DeVille is gonna be flying' too…  Last solo road trip like this (alone) was 2001, when I did the spring break baseball road trip following my son's Butler baseball team, his senior year of college.  Was hoping the Braves would be home for a game that night… make that my first day's destination.  Old dudes like me, we don't do 18 hr drives anymore.  Or at least this one doesn't.

Yeah I am with you there Kurt

I think even Sammy Hagar will tell us that he means he can't drive more than a couple hours now that he is over 55 (ok he is over 65 now) lol

You guys are a bunch of wimps when it comes to driving. And I'm the old fart here, having just turned 69.

I hear ya… BUT. At 69 you can shit or piss yourself and no one thinks twice about it. A young laughing strong Rolling Eyes dude like me… I can't get away with it. I have to stop and recharge the batteries.

I drove 170 to 190 miles every day for 18 years, for 3 years I drove from Baltimore to Manhattan 5 days a week to deliver checks from all the MD banks for processing.

Just lost all interest in driving.

Around here you drive that far to go to the store lol

Back when I worked for a few places in the 80's and 90's I would drive 40 mile round trip to work and then drive to jobs all over he county and that would be just like a UPS driver......except we had to work when we stopped driving laughing

These days I only leave the Kingdom once or twice a month.....saves on gas money for sure smile

Well, that was a smooth trip.  Made it to Atlanta the first day (620 mi) then finished up the other 560 today.  No tickets or incidents.  Good to be home.
I75 to Cinci, then I74 into Indy. Simple stuff.

No shit... it was hotter than hell. The dashboard thermometer said between 92-98 outside the entire day heading N on I75 thru Florida... Hell, John, I was on the ground for 36 hrs. before driving home. No time to play, let alone get sunburned...

When I fly down I take Allegiant from Harrisburg to St. Pete/Clearwater. About a 45 minute drive on each end, it's non-stop. I have to check current prices but I'd guess around $125 each way including luggage.

Oh, sure. Your poor dear mother wants to try her luck at the casino, but no. Yet you can hit the ponies…

Happy anti-Mother's Day! lol

Not out of Harrisburg. The Allegiant flights from Harrisburg to Florida go to Orlando/Sanford or Clearwater/St. Pete/Tampa (which is really St. Pete).

Not out of Harrisburg.  The Allegiant flights from Harrisburg to Florida go to Orlando/Sanford or Clearwater/St. Pete/Tampa (which is really St. Pete).

Yes I know, we live 15 minutes to Sanford/Orlando my youngest always uses that flight to Harrisburg his buddies pick him up from Delta . pissed me off that allegiant canceled the direct flight to ocean city they canceled that flight last year.
