Thanks, Craig, but I already checked them out on Google maps. It looks like going down the interstate would be about 68 miles, ten miles less if we go down U.S. Route 41. I did see the skinny line for the James Scenic Highway. Mmm, close encounter of the 'gator kind along that route? :LOL: We'd stick to the main roads, mostly because we can probably make better time.

Don't know what that is, but Janes Scenic Drive isn't a highway and you don't drive fast. The street sign that marks it actually reads "Janes Scenic Dr.) I'd call it a scenic, dirt road "Trail" that you can drive on. And yes you will encounter gators. Taking 41 is pretty scenic itself when you enter the Strand, but be aware it is a two lane at that point.

You know what? When you make the map image a little bigger, that skinny line running through the state preserve actually does read "Janes Scenic Drive". :LOL:

Himself is familiar enough with SW Florida. His parents lived in Cape Coral from 1971 until Dad died in 2002. He lived with them for about 6 or 8 months between leaving college and getting a job, so he spent a lot of time driving around everywhere - including the Everglades. Heck, even I could find my way to Naples without a map - it has a Trader Joe's, and we go shopping there each year for TJ things.

I'm sure we'll be fine. We have a navigator system in the car, we have phones with GPS, I'll have the physical address in my phone - and Himself can navigate by the stars and sun location if all else fails. Three years as an astronomy major at OSU comes in handy sometimes. ;)
