[QUOTE=Jackolive;968120]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.[/QUOTE]
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!!
