    JP, I have a question for you. I am rolling into your neck of the woods this saturday to meet someone. We want to meet where 71 and 270 intersect, he has been calling it the beltway. I am getting a salter and just need to figure out a good good meeting spot. I figured you would know best.

    Tom,

    You can meet him at the polaris exit which is one exit before the 270 interchange. Then you won't have to deal with construction going on there. Is he from Columbus? If he get off at the Polaris exit have him meet you at the Quaker Steak and Lube. For you that means turning left onto Polaris parkway and then right into the lube

    JP


    Here is a link to Mapquest for that area: They may have you exit at Gemini Parkway which is just before the polaris one. If so just follow that road and turn left onto Poloaris:

    Not a problem. That would be the best spot for you guys to meet then. Easy on and off of the freeways up there.

    Hey guys I currently am looking at my insurance policy and I need some help. I was wondering, if you all don't mind sharing,
    Who is your insurance provider?
    How much you pay for insurance a year?
    How much are you insured for?

    We are trying to add addition services such as lawn aeration, fertilization, etc., and my insurance agent seems to be lost. Currently we have a $300,000 general liability, which seems like at times she is not sure what it covers. So I was getting an idea of what I should expect. Thanks for your help.

    Hey Tom,

    Just to let you know that you shouldn't have any trouble coming from the North but their is a lot of new construction just south Polaris at I-270 and I-71 they are rebuilding the interchange there. Watch your speed as you start to see signs for the Gemini/Polaris exits. It quickly turns into a construction zone and isn't marked very clearly as a construction zone. So Columbus Police will sit by the bridge just before the Gemini Pkwy exit and radar people for speeding. I think JP will agree with me seems like the northside of 270 is always a work in progress. As JP said the guy that is coming from Dayton may have a little trouble, but as far as I know they are only closing stuff at night in the I-270 and I-71 area. I'm 99% sure that you will need to take the Gemini Pkwy exit. The Lube is a great place to eat hope you enjoy. I live about 2-3 miles from Polaris you have any questions about directions you are more than welcome to give me a call on my cell phone 614-581-0553. Hope you have a safe trip.

    Joe

    Thanks for chiming in on this. I was not 100 percent sure about the exit up there. Getting ready to go to a high school game then going to buckeye lake on Saturday for a little rest and relaxation. :drinkup:

    Hey Felas,
    I need some ideas shot at me on how to stop scrapping up the black top of driveways with the trailers gates. I need something that will last and not blow off at 70 MPH. Any input would be great.
    Thanks in advance

    JOSH:confused:
