  1. Good thing the road is for later, because today from Apopka west on 441 all the from Plymouth to Zellwood at Sadler intersectionis a very backed up slow roll due to road construction. Heading on toward Mt. Dora is bumpy and bad too. I wish I would have known ahead of heading this direction.

  2. I meant, good thing the road trip visiting Apopka is for later……I see other typo misspellings, sorry, letters are magically disappearing and appearing posting. LOL
