I had a passenger with me that wanted to stop about every 5 minutes and made my ears hurt. We had a baseball tournament in Fort Myers to get to, so time was of the essence!

I will be Florida bound again in late February/early March once it gets close to Spring Training, I will likely be more up for taking more pics/videos along the way. I did take a couple of pics and videos after dropping Bill off back in K.C. Namely a video of the mess at US 36/I-229, a video of I-129, some photos of I-129, and some photos of the northern I-229. I will post them soon.
