Over The River and Through The Woods…

Thanksgiving is traditionally the most traveled holiday in the country and this year looks to be no exception, especially here in O-Town and at the Orlando International Airport.

I was driving home from work today at about 4:30pm down Frontage Road. Suddenly the normally brisk moving traffic began slowing down as I approached the curve just east of the Beeline tollbooth. After a few minutes of slowly inching forward I was able to see the cause of the slowdown. There is an off-site parking service on the curve, one of those places where airport patrons can park their cars for less per day than the parking garage at OIA charges, and grab a shuttle to the terminal. There was a woman standing in the middle of the entrance waving off drivers who wanted to enter and park their cars and the reason was obvious; the entrance was backed up to the road with cars, and the lot was so full (overfull, actually) that the parking service had put about 200 vehicles in the grass on the side of the road next to their lot.

Man am I glad my family’s celebration is closer to home.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
