    And from the snarky response you got from a resident of that state, I'm sure that your sympathy level has shot up.

    Hmmmm........sounds like a personal choice. Might want to get out of there, next major earthquake it's going to fall into the Pacific anyway. Move to Free Florida! We don't have any earthquakes.....just hurricanes, humidity, mosquitos, alligators, rain, lightning....tourists who drive like they don't have a clue where they are going but are not going to be late getting there....wait, you have those tourists too.

    And overall, the drivers here in Florida *STILL* manage to be better than the ones I left behind in "Taxifornia" (I like that word!)! Even with the Snow Bird Liberals from New York and New Jersey!

    The best sight I've seen in a long time was the Commiefornia state line fading out of sight in my rear view mirrors- - - - -and that was in 1980!

    Use to be a place in Jupiter FL called Harry and the Natives. They had great burgers and such but the best thing was the Snow Bird Specials ... it was a combo sandwich and fries with “free drink” funny thing is the combo was 10¢ more than the items rung up separately but the “special” tag would get the ones who were looking for a deal and would still the sugar packets off their table and the ones next to them .

    As to their driving habits ... use to be the older and as osteoporosis caused them to get shorter the bigger their cars got. I’d see a freakin’ Cadillac boat going down I95 and seeing just the tops of gray heads barley over the dashboard ... driving 45mph on the damn interstate in the left lane.

    That's just smart marketing. As for the driving, this could have been filmed in Florida, were it not for the hills.

    Could have been in the upper part of FL. Sayin'.
    My nephew that lives in Ft. Myers HATES riding with me when I'm down there in snowbird season. I hang out the driver's side window yelling at them to get the bleep moving or get out of the way. He ends up slumping way down in the passenger seat! I'm having fun and he's embarrassed to death!

    Re: Commiefornia at it again

    I was terrified a few years ago when I heard the statistics on how many licensed drivers over the age of 100 we have in Florida....good thing most of them don't actually drive anymore. My late grandmother was always able to renew her license via mail because she had a perfect driving record.....that was because my late grandfather had not permitted her behind the wheel of a car in over 20 years.

    Same way I went - I originally wanted to go the northern route, but was scared of the weather and the car was grossly overloaded - and barely made it to Fl as it was.

    Re: Commiefornia at it again

    I was at the shell station on the 58 outside of Bakersfield a couple years ago and watched a pickup head toward Tehachapi, guy had his truck piled twice as high as the truck was tall. Was swaying back and forth as he turned onto the freeway.
    figured we would see the truck laying on its side some where along the way but some how he made it all the way, ether that or went off the side of the mountain never to be seen again.

    Re: Commiefornia at it again

    You see all kinds of crazy stuff - once watched a guy pull into Stove Pipe Wells in an overloaded station wagon towing a rather large Holiday Rambler travel trailer. The A-frame of its hitch was about 1/2 inch off the pavement. Bunch of people piled out of the car and the driver was yelling something about "... and you guys didn't think we'd make it!". He'd just driven this mess over the Panamint mountain range, which means he probably came out of Barstow, which means he got there either over the Tehachapis or more likely was some loon from LA.
