As long as the universe doesn't hate me I'll come and bring a sandwich maker, a.k.a. cook, a.k.a. wife. Looks like I may also bring the fastest car that will make it. Rental car. Bring the envy.

I would really like to go. But that drive would be seriously brutal, and I'd have to start the "getting off work" process now.

Anyone want to let me ride in their trunk if I meet them at their house?

We can probably arrange that. You will have to make the short jog to Tampa.

I'll gladly make that drive if I can carpool the rest of the way. I'll chip in for gas/food/beer/bears/magnums.

I'll go ahead and start working on getting the time off now.

Edit: Can I bring a gun?

Good idea, but not $360 bucks cool.

You could've if you had asked privately.

Don't bring the magnums, they don't really fit me.




















Wait a minute, you were talking about a gun.

I was just kidding. I don't even have a gun, yet.

I'm going to try hard and make this work. Plane tickets aren't cheap, so I'd rather drive to someone's place and carpool from there, if someone is okay with that. I'd also need someone to watch my dog for me.

How much floor space are we talking about here? I don't mind sleeping in a sleeping bag, but I'm not trying to sleep stacked in a laundry room with ten other dudes...

You should do the math on fuel and tolls from Key West to Sarasota. It might not be as big a cost difference as you are thinking. Especially if you drive the Viper.

Hell no, I'll be driving my truck. I've recently taken trips to Orlando, West Palm and Miami; just from memory I can say it will be a lot cheaper to just drive to someone's place around Tampa.

We've got ample floorspace but not much furniture. Everybody should consider bringing folding chairs or lawnchairs for the deck, dock, fireside, and even inside. I only have furniture for eleven on the main floor.

Well, I know everyone here are a bunch of pussies, but the floor should be adequate furniture for sitting.

Got my shifts covered. Booyaa

If I can find someone to watch my dog I'll be golden. Also need someone who is willing to let me tag along in their car and doesn't mind a super sweet minivan being parked at their house for a few days.

If here was on the way I could care less about a van and I'd have a dog sitter for you. Plus a carpool seat. I need to make sure my air mattress can survive a man pile and petroleum products though.
