    Spent 5 hours going 20 miles today on I-75 south of Gainesville. Apparently 10 people died in a massive pile up south bound. I saw most of the wreckage and it was unbelivable. Bless them.

    The accidents happened at 11:30pm last night and again at 4:30 am this morning. Gruesome is an understatement. I'm anxious to hear from others who left Silver Dollar driving northbound on I-75. I'm sitting in a Flying J lot for the night. 140 miles in 8 hours. However, I thank God that the apartment on wheels didn't get tangled up in that one. Hopefully those that are injured will survive. Thanks for the wishes.

    blade, glad to hear you are safe. I saw the wreckage on TV news tonight. I think the accident happened on the south bound side. Have a safe trip home tomorrow. Tom

    I think that the FHP and FL DOT is in deep Kimchie on this one. They should have never reopened the highway. I'm home! Worse driving trip back from Florida ever and I've made a few. Ate with some Truckers last night at the Flying J Denneys and they were all "wired" from the traffic. Home Sweet Home (again in March).

    Glad your safe. When I heard about I checked to see if you shot Sunday. Good thing you did.
