My original plan was to take highway 79 through Buffalo to Jacksonville and then take highway 69 north to Greenville where I was then going to pick up highway 380. I would have saved a lot of time if I would have stuck to my original plan. The only problem is when I got to Buffalo, all lanes of I45 were going north and they all were running at normal highway speeds. Once you get on to I45, there are no service roads so there was no way to get back, and the police had all exits blocked off. This is why I now keep a working CB radio in my car.
