    After 45 years of putting up with Ohio’s crappy winters and too short of Hot Rod season, I made the big move to Florida. The Boss (aka the wife) is happy with the house the way it is, so that means I can get started on a garage. (I’ve got plenty of room for one now) So to all the great people in Ohio that I met through the H.A.M.B., take care, stay safe and give me a holler if you’re ever down this way. And to all the great folks in Florida I haven’t met yet, I’ll see you on the road and at the shows.:D

    Welcome to Florida. :) Moved here from Pa. in 1982 and NEVER want to see that white stuff again. Florida isn't perfect, and the heat and humidity in the Summer are tough, but when you are walking around in just shorts in Dec-Jan you will think you died and went to heaven. :)

    If the little lady likes it that is most of the battle. You got here just in time for the Billetproof Drags and Turkey Run.

  13. You picked a good location, right in the middle of the state for car shows and cruises. BUT, you are north of Orlando and could possibly see snow, yes rare, but I have seen it back in the 80's.
    Oh and they did not mention hurricanes.......not the football team.....rain, rain, go away......

    Chris: I agree with what Don's Hot Rods said.

    I moved to Florida 20 years ago to get the hell away from snow,ice, cold weather and putting chains on my trucks.

    I also never like the fact that 4 or 5 months our the year I was paying tax on land that was covered with snow.

    Florida is not perfect but it sure beats the hell out of winters in Connecticut.

    Best of luck with your new home.

    Welcome fellow ex-Ohio prisoner!
    I made my run for the border over 22 years ago and haven't looked back since. I've tried to describe Ohio to my friends down here and they have a hard time believing how bad it really is. They think snow is a nice change of seasons :confused:
