    For a year or so, depending how stuff goes. I have a place to stay rent free and a friend that is already down there, who is starting up a garage.

    But the thing is, until this place gets going, I'm going to need to be a liberal leech and get some free healthcare from the state. So my question to you guys is what's the name of the title 19 free-hood-muhfucka insurance in Florida? 'cause I need that shit before I get down there, yo. Maybe even a link where I can sign up would be great! I could probably get that myself though, I'm not THAT lazy.

    Thanks home skillets.

    Healthcare anywhere is enigmatic at best now. Fl. dept of human services would be the place to start asking questions.

    I found everything I needed as far as coverage.

    As far as the box, I'm gonna bring part of it and the stuff that I use the most. Depending how shit goes I can come get the rest of it if I need it.

    And it's in Sarasota.

    You know that whatever you don't take, you'll need the most.

    ^ Fucks that supposed to mean?

    And I'm bringing import tools and Ford/GM/Chrysler tools plus all the oddball things I find useful. I leave on the 3rd. Kinda feels weird stepping out of my comfort zone for the first time. I've always either lived in Chicago or Milwaukee. Who knows, I might come back because I don't like it. I mean, Florida is pretty fuckin trashy and all.

    Just read about the alcohol sales laws in Florida on Wikipedia.

    Selling beer or malt liquor in 40 or 64 ounce quantities is illegal. Move is cancelled.

    Almost as dumb as California's law prohibiting growler refills or Colorado's one liquor store per owner / anti-liquor chain law.

    Oh man don't remind me. I remember what a pain it was getting liquor when I was in Utah for that amount of time. We drove from Milwaukee so we took I-80 most of the way, we stopped in Evanston, Wyoming to buy cases of beer on the way back. That only lasted like a week and then we had to go to the ABC liquor store to buy booze, forget any of that watered down beer. I stole a 40 out of some asshole's fridge of 3.2, it was disgusting.

    Oh, and I'm not normally a dick like that, but we went to this guy's apartment, to get my friend's/his ex-roommates stuff (who died). He kept saying all the shit was his and that we needed to get the fuck out, when his dad knew all of the stuff he had because he gave him a lot of it (before even seeing it). The apartment was in my friend's dad's name. We just walked around him and grabbed everything that belonged to my friend, on the way out I opened his fridge and took his beer. That's what you get for being a shithead.

    So yeah, there's my 3.2% Utah beer story. Never again. Utah is pretty though.

    Utah is gorgeous. I was actually looking up hotel tickets for another trip to Moab this morning. Also, Epic Brewing out of SLC is one of the best breweries out there, imo.

    Kansas has always had some pretty stupid liquor laws. This is one area where the interests of the religious right and organized crime (to the extent there's a difference) go hand in hand. I guess it was thus in the Prohibition, too. [shrugs] [apparently the whole state was dry from 1881 to 1948]

    Kansas has been slow to adopt "liquor-by-the-drink" laws. You'd have to BYOB to a club and give it to the bartender who would then technically sell you the mixer as a pretext to having to buy your own booze a second time, as I understand it. (Once at a package store and then again at the bar) You can see by the map they still go county by county. I think you can still only buy 3.2% beer at grocery and convenience stores. And this, from back in the 70's:

    In the 1970s, Kansas Attorney General Vern Miller renewed the enforcement of Kansas's prohibition, even raiding Amtrak trains traveling through Kansas to stop illegal liquor sales.[6] He also forced airlines to stop serving liquor while traveling through Kansas airspace.[7]In 2013 it is likely that these restrictions would be found unconstitutional under the Supreme Court's decision in Granholm v. Heald, 544 U.S. 460 (2005).​

    For a state to have a need to run people's life to that extent is crazy.

    If you are driving through Virginia on your way down, hit me up. I'll give you a place to crash, and we can enjoy a few drinks!

    Virginia is quite out of the way from Milwaukee -> Tampa, but thanks for the offer anyways!

    Figured I'd let everybody know that I'm here. It's hot and sticky, like my balls

    Oh, and Florida Man does exist. I have run into him or just missed him on several occasions..

    I'm in Pensacola for a funeral. If you think this is bad, just you wait until summer. You'll step outside and won't be able to catch your breath.

    They both have suction and you must wash them before suction.

    If you look like your avatar maybe... I grew up in CA, lived in Portland and Sacramento ofr a couple years each. Visited El Paso (3 months) and did college in Fort Worth (3 years). It's thick but I had no problem catching my breath.

    Maybe lose some weight? LOL
    bigwill51534 says thanks for this.
