Hello from Florida
« on: December 31, 2019, 04:48:06 PM »

Hi, just joined the forum. I live in FL and had always been interested in roads, bridges and related things such as signs and lighting. I don't get to travel as often these days, and I prefer to ride and take in the scenery rather than drive in unfamiliar places. But regardless still have an interest in them.

Some of my hobbies are looking at places on Google Maps and I hope to eventually collect a few roadway lights and reflectors.

Hello from the Ozarks, approximately 1,000 miles to the northwest. I often visit the Daytona/Orlando area as I have family there, but this past thanksgiving I was fortunate enough visit Lake Okeechobee and view the dark skies there.

Welcome from the northern neighbor of Georgia!  :wave:

I’ve been itching to get back down to Florida sometime soon (I was last in the state in 2014), and I always enjoy visiting the state—which also has some of the best roads in the country (in terms of upkeep and quality-wise). I’ve also actually been doing a lot of Google Maps street-view in Florida lately, and also brushing up on some new information on the roads.

I am looking forward to seeing you around on the forum!  :nod:
