Leaving for Florida tonight

Headed down to Florida from NJ tonight at about 7:00pm.
I have a good idea of which route I want to take but havent done it in years and would like some suggestions.
Going from NJ to Sarasota to pick up the AMT.
Friday we will head across to Ft Lauderdale.
Sunday night we will come back up north towing this.!

Straight down I95 to Daytona ....then I4 thru Orlando to I75 then South to Sarasota ...... or

when you get to Jax on I95 take I10 west to I75 then South to Sarasota .... Orlando can be REAL bad during rush hour

Take 95 to 10 west 20 or so miles to 301(same exit as Baldwin FL) 301 south 75 and 75 into srrasota. That's the wuickest way. 301 is a great road 4 lanes all the way and not too much traffic. Its 80 miles to 75 from 10 just watch out for the 75 sign or you will miss it start looking after 75 miles on 301 you have to make a right and go about 2 miles to catch 75 but there are signs. Also watch out in Starke and Lawty DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT they are serious speed traps, some civil right group even bouth billboards to warn you about 15 mile before the towns. I can make it from sarrasota to the florida state line on 10 in 4 hours going this way and there is never any traffic on this route no matter what time of day. I drive about 100k a year up and down the east coast, you gotta learn the backroads.
