    @Nubsnstubs is on his way to the not so sunshine state and I am organizing a wood hoarding event here in Central Florida so we can all meet and greet and walk away with some of Jerry’s stash that he has trucked over from Arizona. We discussed getting together on Saturday the 26th.

    I have tried to capture all the active woodbarter members from Florida but feel free to tag anyone that I may have missed. If you are coming just post in this thread and I will pm everyone the meeting location and time.

    You could go through Polk city and then through Winter Haven. Probably take just as long as going 27. It is easier taking the turnpike then 618 to I4.

    I4 sucks too!! About as easy to run 75 down to 60, and run 60 across now that road construction is about done in the Tampa area.

    Used to run 75 to Sumterville/Lake Panasoffkee exit, little ways south of Wildwood, run over to Sumterville, down 471 to 98, then through Lakeland, cut over to Bartow, to points further south of you. I could pick up 60 at Bartow and run across. As long as you don't hit rush hour Lakeland isn't toooooooo bad. Rush hour in Lakeland in a loaded truck, you might as well take 27, there's not a lot of difference.

    However... I could jump off at Okahumpka and run 33 down through Groveland down to Polk City, wiggle through across to Winter Haven, and work my way over to 27 from there. Pretty decent road last time I traveled it, but my retarded GPS tends to make things interesting in there in a couple places.

    (Should you ever be up that way around noon, there is a little restaurant south of Groveland a mile or two on 33, next door to a petting zoo, called the Red Wing Restaurant. Don't look like much from the outside, but definitely worth the stop!!! Whoever they got in the kitchen, didn't learn to cook like that in Groveland. It's sort of a gourmet hole in the wall. Food is OUT OF THIS FLIPPIN WORLD!! And, pretty reasonable prices.)

    All the more reason to avoid I4 and 27.

    I have way too many ill memories of 27... And, having been from Lake Wales to the Turnpike on it not too long ago, I'm pretty sure it's still under construction for some of that 15 miles or so they had down to 1 lane. Pretty sure I have traveled every known route possible from Avon Park/Sebring to Wildwood, many of them SEVERAL times, simply because I despise 27 that much! :cowboy:
