I’ve traveled the Tamiami Trail before I-75 was completed and was the only route for those hearty souls inclined to make the trip. Far more interesting when you can pull off and explore a bit, rather than traverse the blandness of Interstate America. I wonder what the Miccosukee think of it all?

Another “interesting” road is 60 (or was it 70?), gator guards, narrow, dark and desolate. Break down and you’re in the flow of traffic – such as it was. As I recall, there was a small manual ferry involved barely big enough for two cars. Absolute blackness, other than the stars. The lack of development was one of the more memorable facets of that particular trip.
