The Open Road

The sun is harsh, the pavement hot,
You might think us insane!
But unless you’ve known it for yourself
There’s no way to explain

The freedom of the open road,
The majesty of the wind,
The wonder of God’s nature
Waiting ’round each winding bend!

You’ll simply have to join us,
And then it will seem plain,
One ride upon the open road,
You’ll never be the same!


Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul

November 16 - We’re not pointing fingers… but at least one home belonging to a neighbor was discovered as listed for sale when it’s actually NOT FOR SALE. Might not be a bad idea to search for your home and see if it’s YOU. Scary, isn’t it?

November 10 – After a couple of bounces, a Lake Weir Living® home is up for private sale! As far as we can tell this is the first one on the resale market. It’s a beautiful Tuscan model constructed by the iconic Builder Joe on a 3/4 acre wooded lot. Maybe you’ve been thinking about coming down but haven’t got the time to wait for a home to be built. This could be your chance. Here’s a link to the listing on Zillow.

October 1 - Texting while driving is now prohibited in Florida. We think it’s about time. One bummer: it’s merely a secondary offense. Here’s the legislative overview of CS/CS/HB 13 and a deep link to H 0013 c2, the latest revision which includes the “Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law.”
