It's only about 40 hour round trip from the Morgantown general area, so I am sure a little R&R in Orlando will help him relax. I will be in West Palm Beach next week and if the stove is a bust I can spare a few antidepressants to help him get home. However, he has to travel that first 160 miles to get to WPB on his own. It will make the 10 hour trip just to get out of Florida easier to take. Someone else on this board has to be on suicide watch for a week.
Watch out that Route 1 does not have any brush fires, the last time I went to Marathon it took 7 hours just to get to Key Largo. You can take a break there as there are nice hotels this time of the year at around $400 a night.
