took the drone out today and kept getting gimbal motor errors again. I recalibrated it twice before it finally worked correctly. Here are a couple shots. I’ll download videos later. I got high wind warnings so had to give it up.

I get a charge out of your descriptions of I95.  It's all true. We don't drive to FLL for our cruises, we hire a local car service, who I have used for over 40 years. And, since we usually do at least B2B, it's actually cheaper than paying for the parking.

 I really don't mind the driving north on I95, at least to DC, then it is crazy again.

Ahh...if you don't have your sense of humor...especially with surviving 2020...what have you?  🤪🤡

 

Ohh...then there is always wine!  😄  🍷

Agree as wine enhances the sense of humor. 🍷

I agree I-95 was crazy, but we didn’t see any police from the GA border to Fort Lauderdale.  We were cruising at an easy 75, and everyone was flying past us. 
 

Now GA was different.  We came through one spot where they were set up on an overpass and had chase cars beneath.  Six chase cars all had someone pulled over, and a seventh was waiting. My wife was driving at that time, doing 80, and they didn’t come after her.

Few years ago I got caught doing 81, probably about 8AM, light traffic, and I wasn't paying attention. Had to pay the ticket since GA has a reciprocal agreement with FL .  Then , I got a letter from Ga saying since I had paid my ticket, meaning I was pleading guilty, I was a Super Speeder, so I got an additional fine.  I think , all told, it cost me about $600.

 I don't think will drive through Georgia anymore.

I'd take I-95 over I-4 any day.  I-95 is okay until you get to South Florida.  I-4 is pretty much awful everywhere.  If we have to go across the state we go down 95 and then take 417 around Orlando and all the attractions

We’ve taken I4 a few times when we have either driven south or are heading home and have to take the I75 route through Detroit as opposed to I95/I77/I79 though Buffalo and I absolutely agree with you.  Seems like every time we take I4 we get stuck in some sort of traffic jam for hours. The last time heading south we did some back roads and cut across to get to I95 to avoid a big closure.

Renee, your picture of Mike reminded me of the time when my son's plane (FA) had a close encounter with an unlucky bird, just when they approached landing in Paris (CDG).

 

The crew got an unexpected 2 days layover in Paris (usually Paris is a "quickie"😁)...

I would think that would have been scary. Good thing it didn't go thru the engine.

Passed that set up many times in GA.  
 

The other bad spot is through Summerville WV on 19  They’ll get out of state/country plates doing a couple miles over posted limits and the limits constantly change.   It’s so bad through that area that CAA recommends avoiding that route and taking an hour detour around there.

GA State Troopers are going to get you. 

In 1999, Atlanta got to play in the Super Bowl down here, and I happened to be in Port St Lucie visiting my DD and her children.  FHP had their airplane in the air and were targeting the south bound speeders. I saw a lot of Georgia tags.  Must have been payback.

We’ve avoided turning this thread into a COVID19, smoking, dress code, DL/CL/SL discussion. Hope it doesn’t swing to a spelling/grammar check. 😇


I’ll just throw in some Canadian spelling and it will confuse you to the point that you will forget all about it. 😉

At what speed can you do on I-95 in Florida before the police give you a speeding ticket?  I have also been going 75 mph and other cars pass me as if I was stopped.

I'm guessing it depends on the mood of the cop. :classic_biggrin:

I-95 in FL is downright scary!  I-75 on the west coast isn't much better.

 

 

I find I-75 scarier than I-95.  We'll be on I-95 this Wednesday  and Thursday, traveling across I-10 Thursday to I-75, and continuing our journey along I-75 on Friday, to our condo in Naples.  🌴

Over here if you are less than 10 miles over the speed limit you can elect to do a one day driving course instead of the points on your license,  you have to pay for the course. If more than 10 miles over the limit its fine plus points. If you get more than 12 points in 3 years you can lose your license

Today I blew snow for a couple hours and have to do more tomorrow to get it mostly respectable.  A few pics to give you the idea.

Lucy even came out for a couple minutes, and immediately showed the snow what she thought of it.😉 Thankfully the blower threw it 90’ into the field never to be seen again.

The sun also made a special guest appearance as well. First time we have seen it in 4 or 5 days. Sunset is a couple minutes later now, and I so appreciate that.

All this white is so beautiful, so pure. I like it from afar😘

 

I dread the 8 weeks or so between the end of the "Daylights Saving Time" and Dec. 21st, when the days get shorter and shorter.

 

As you say, from 21st "we" gained ~5 minutes !!! And... is getting better and better.
