"Really?" Florida is a REALLY BIG STATE

We learned this already on our drive to Orlando last weekend.  Navarre, Florida to Orlando is about 6 hours worth of driving.

We were able to get from Raleigh, NC to Washington, D.C. in less time.

But when we started doing our driving planning for our annual June trip to central PA for Dave's family reunion, we were floored to discover that our upcoming drive will only be 70 miles less than the drive from Bellevue, NE!

Wow!

At least, that's the word according to Bing Maps:

Navarre, FL to our stop in central PA: 1078.7 miles...16 hours, 6 minutes.

Bellevue, NE to our stop in central PA: 1146.9 miles...16 hours, 31 minutes.
As we typically do, we stop somewhere overnight.  Don't worry, my USAF Safety Officer friends :-)

One might also find fascinating that El Paso to Beaumont, TX = 833.2 miles...and Pensacola to Key West, FL = 833.8 miles (according to Bing Maps!)

Florida is a VERY long state!

Just wanted to let you know, one of your questions will appear on MFF tomorrow!

Most awesome! Hopefully I'll get a chance to fill out the answers while we're on the road tomorrow! Thanks!
