"Mini" Live Trip Report


#1

16 hours in the car yesterday…Let me repeat 16 HOURS. We made it to Clearwater for a day at the Beach, then over to DTD Hiltonfor one night until PIRATE ROOMS. We are staying at a Hampton Inn in Clearwater which is very nice except for the strip club next door…ohh well.
If you ever get a chance to drive 16 hours with a 5 and 3 year old…pass…its about as much fun as it sounds.

Glad you made it safe and sound.

We have a 9 hour drive and have been doing it every year since our 3 children were 6, 4 and 9 months. I can only imagine the amount of fun you had driving with a 5 and 3 year old for 16 hours. Wow!:blink::laugh:

Have a fun trip-can’t wait to read more!:happy:

I keep saying we should try to drive because it would be so much cheaper than 5 airline tickets, but…when we can barely make it on a 1 1/2 hour trip to our summer cottage in WI, DH looks at me and says, “And you think you want to drive to FL?”:laugh:I know he’s right, we’d never make it. I think it’s about 20 hrs. from here and our kids are 10, 7, and 4. :wacko:Guess we’ll stick with flying for now. Glad to hear you made it OK. Now relax and enjoy!!

We drove 2 years ago…Our thinking now is, been there done that and so NOT doing that again!! 21 hours was just a tad too long for us, so we’ll stick with the cloudy skies from now on…LOL

Enjoy the Pirate rooms, from the looks of them they are GREAT!!

I drove down once and that was when Disney was a two Park Resort back in the 70’s and it took us 24 hrs of straight driving just to reach Florida. Never again flying is the only way to go
