Wednesday (02-January-2019) — Florida to Georga

Gone to See Florida Road Trip. Day 11: St. Petersburg, Florida to Savannah, Georgia.

I waited until 10:00 to start to avoid rush hour traffic across the bridge and through Tampa. The heads up display shows the posted speed limits (and and car’s sensors supposedly also detects and reads speed limit signs). This is important when driving through the speed traps along US 301 (Starkey, Waldo, and Lawtey). Data from Landrover InControl: Drive time: 2:27 hours:minutes; Distance: 359 miles; Avg Speed: 57 mph; Fuel used: 11.2 gal; Avg Fuel Consumption: 31.1 mpg.
