Why? Family get together?

Family is all from and still lives in Pittsburgh.

We like the Jax weather too, that's why we were the first ones to leave PA

You guys should come stop by Cafe Notte on Ohio River Blvd this week. Great place to go for a semi romantic dinner that wont break your wallet.

As a lifelong Jacksonvillian, I long for a white Christmas at least once. I'm a little jealous.

Are you planning on carrying on the trip up there? If so, what?

Congrats on the engagement and safe travels! Merry Christmas!

My Florida CCW has reciprocity with PA and all of the states we will be passing through. Since winter clothing is required, I can easily carry my Shield 9 with the extended mag.

Not sure if it will be a white xmas, but who knows, the weather there changes on a dime.

Merry Christmas to you, too!

Sheetz or WaWa?

I like both but Sheetz will let you put ANYTHING on the menu on a sandwich.

My fiance is from the South, but she always has us stop for MTOs when we start our drive back down south.

No WaWa in western PA. It's Sheetz or GetGo. Both also make very good subs. The last time
I had WaWa was almost 30 years ago when I was attending Lehigh University.

That's a long drive, I just did SC to PA, Pro Tip;

Watch your speed going through VA.

Your brother gives good road head, eh? As long as you don't mind reciprocating, I guess.

We know about VA, they don't play around.

Without stops it's a 12 hour trip. Sometimes we fly and sometimes we drive. Flights just seemed to be stupid expensive this year, and we didn't drive last year, so we figured it was road trip time.

81 North sucks from the 255 - 321 due to congestion and 65mph speed limits. MTO is always good to go.

So you're saying that the road head will be even more awkward on the ride home when it's just you and your brother?

Do you have 4WD? Because looking at the weather forecast here you're probably going to want 4WD.

Yes, we're driving my four-door Wrangler.

And don't worry, I grew up and learned how to drive in winter weather. I'm no southern newbie

Quick update:

There was a little drama before we left. A small rock chip in the windshield turned into a huge crack 2 hours before departure. Safelite got me a new windshield installed last minute.

We are 300 miles and 5 hours in. Fiancé is excited that we stopped at chick fil a for dinner.

We are fueling up off of I77 near Columbia, SC. Just bought some 0degree washer fluid because they don't sell that in Florida

It rained for 4.5 hours from the start till we hit I77. Was frustrating.

It's 39 degrees and dropping and my thinned out blood is tellin me I'm cold

Safe travels to all the other holiday travelers!

Safe travels to everybody on the road. I made my last biz trip of the year last week. There's no place like home, there's no place like home.
