epicgood Gave a good friend of mine a ride from Tampa to Vero Beach today on my way to Hallandale! She bought me and my little brother lunch then her ride came. As she left this man in the pic on the left came walking up to me asking for a ride to Tampa.. Told I just came from there and couldn't help him. He asked for $ for a bus ticket and I told him the truth, I don't carry cash cuz I'd give it all away!! He said he'd take what he could get, I gave him a bottle of water, an epic good card, and the remaining half of my sandwich... Why not!?! AND to top it all off.. This truck pulled up right next to us after we parked... AG SALES!?! My brothers initials? Anthony Giglio!! And the number 003 conveniently on there?!? Coincidence?! Never! The timing of everything is perfect! #kingag3 #epicgood #peoplehelpingpeople #dogoodwhynot #epicgoodlife #hihosilvershipping #payitforward #randomactsofkindness #rak #ark #btc #bethechange #faith #believe #verobeach #florida #okechobee #yeehawjunction #everythinghappensforareason #003 #03 #3 #signsfromabove 5d

Desert Inn, Yeehaw Junction, Florida at US441 & SR60 .

Established in the 1880s as a trading post, this location was the convergence of trails used by cowboys and loggers. This building dates to 1898. After roads were built in the 1930 this location became known as "Jackass Junction", a nod to the area’s cowboys and lumbermen who relied on mules for working cattle or hauling timber.
As traffic increased a bordello was established upstairs, and then cabins for travelers who eschewed "entertainment". In the 1950s, as Florida’s Turnpike was being built, state legislators felt that “Jackass Crossing” would be offensive to winter tourists, so they changed the name to Yeehaw Junction.

joetherocketman Yeehaw Junction, a place I am very fond of in Florida. Sitting at the crossroads of SR 60 and US 441, it was originally named Jackass junction until 1957, when the nearby entrance to the Florida Turnpike prompted officials to rename the location to a more family-friendly name. The Desert Inn was the local brothel for many decades, and the restaurant still serves food today. #yeehawjunction #oldflorida #florida #history #ghosttown 1mon
