We are 1 month away from the East Coast Jam and things are in preparation.
I wanted to post some information for those attending.
First, if you are arriving by air to the Orlando Airport and you do not plan to rent a car you will need to arrange transportation from the airport to the hotel.
I recommend Lake Limo. Their website is http://www.lakelimo.net/
The Cost is $47 for the first person and $22 for each additional person. Call them and make arrangment before you leave.
Second, if you are driving from the airport
1:Start out going SOUTH on AIRPORT BLVD W toward TERMINAL ACC. 0.8 miles
2:Turn SLIGHT LEFT onto TERMINAL B. 0.2 miles
3:Stay STRAIGHT to go onto AIRPORT BLVD E.1.6 miles
4:Keep RIGHT at the fork in the ramp. 0.3 miles
5:Merge onto BEE LINE EXPY/FL-528 W (Portions toll).6.2 miles
6:Take EXIT 4 toward US-17/US-92/US-441/ORANGE BLOSSOM TR/FLORIDA'S TURNPIKE.0.1 miles
7:Take the FLORIDA'S TURNPIKE exit.0.7 miles
8:Take the exit toward FLORIDA'S TPKE NORTH/OCALA. 0.2 miles
9:Merge onto FLORIDA'S TURNPIKE N (Portions toll).30.3 miles
10:Merge onto US-27 N/FL-25 N via EXIT 285 toward LEESBURG.22.9 miles
11:Turn LEFT onto US-441 ALT/US-27 ALT. 0.1 miles
12:Continue to Microtel on the Left
Total Est. Time: 1 hour, 19 minutes Total Est. Distance: 63.85 miles
There are two toll roads (FL 528 and the TurnPike) from the airport. The total cost of the tolls for cars is about $3.50
Third, if you are just driving, Microtel is on US 27 between Leesburg and Ocala.
Since most people said they wanted a 3 day jam we will be starting at 9:00 am on Friday morning with the first player scheduled for 10:00 am.
We know people will be arriving during the day Friday. Since check in at the hotel is not until 3:00 pm you will want to come to the Jam room before you check in.
