Journey so far – no, I’m STILL not in Disney World yet!

It stared last night when I could not get to sleep. The last time I looked to the clock, it was after 4:00 am. Naturally, there was no getting up at 8 as planned. Did not leave house until after 10, when I determined I needed gas. Got gas, went about a mile on I-75 and came to a stand-still at exit 136. Crawled a while. Fellow travelers and I were dumped unceremoniously off the interstate at exit 139. Had to pull over and fire up GPS on my phone to figure out how to get to somewhere I knew. Wove in and out the streets until I found US highway 41 ("Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man…"). Crossed the Caloosahatchee via the Edison Bridge and started looking for a road, any road, that I knew to be an exit off I-75. Bayshore Road it is. Now I’ve gotten as far as Ellenton and needed to pee and walk around a bit. I still have an hour and a half to go before I hit Disney Property. Lord, have mercy and spare me further travel agony!
