Florida.

Postby ElectricPuppy » Thu Nov 17, 2011 12:18 am

So...

My wife's aunt lives in Naples. She invited us (the royal "us") out to her place for Thanksgiving this year, and so that's what we're gonna do. We fly out Monday and spend the whole week with her, having turkey, talking turkey, calling others "turkey", and so on.

I am likely to develop a serious case of BORED at some point.

What's to do in freakin' Florida? How far as Tampa? Is that within meeting distance, perchance? I'll have a car and I'm not afraid to use it.

Word to your state.

it's about a 1.5-2 hour drive from here. it's the drunk point where all the drunks get on party cruises and head down to the keys and it's also at the start of alligator alley.

the royal you lololololololololololololololololol

Between there and tampa it's mostly retirement beachy type stuff and a ton of museums and art galleries. all the real heavy touristy stuff is either in central Fl or the East Coast.. Titusville, Cocoa Beach, Orlando, Daytona etc.

If you're serious, i'm sure we can find something to do..

Florida is too weird to be boring. Not Cali weird, though. More like, "Earnest Joins the Circus" kitschy stuff. I can't describe it, but I like to visit. Things you might consider:

The Everglades. A bit of a drive, but it's like nothing else in the country.

Key West. A whole lot more of a drive, but again, a one of a kind thing. Maybe you're inured against driving in the middle of the sea, but it's :eek: to me...

Eat a conch fritter sammitch. Really.

Visit Metro.

I don't know if this place is still open... http://www.synthmuseum.com/magazine/ap.html

then drops a shit load of meth, highjacks a bus full of nuns and then whipes out an entire family crashing the bush through their trailer.

that's more like. You can see historic gibsonton fla while you're here. tee hee. an episode of the ex files took place there. that's where all the carnies live yuk yuk

Oh man. That sounds like a lot of fun.

But we have thanksgiving plans. I wouldn't mind going to Florida, I love Florida. But now is probably not the time for road trips anyway. Our younger boy just turned 1 so he's not at the age where he sleeps all the time anymore, and he also doesn't watch cartoons or anything for over a minute or two. I can't imagine what an 8-hour trip with him would be like.

I haz an envy, I'd love a good excuse to go to Florida. And of course, to meet you fine gentlemen...

No, I'm not a football freak. Or a baseball freak. Or a hoops freak.

In fact, there is NO sport that I follow in any way, shape, or form.

Any of those days will probably be just hunky-dory with me, let me check wit teh wife. :thu:

We leave the following Tuesday. If you wanted to play hooky on Monday, we could do that. :grin:
