Wasn't bad compared to previous cars I've driven in on long trips. Every time we filled up my friend and I switched spots so it wasn't just constant driving.

For the first like 14 hours we were good, no pain whatsoever after that we started to get a little sore.

And yeah came out to visit my brother lol, I'm also gonna be moving out here in Late august / september so I need to take a look around. Also hoping to check out USF's campus.

get your white wisconsin butt to the beach, man, how often are you this close? at least check it out while you are there!!! There is an old school BBQ shack in Dunedin if you can make it. Also get a grouper sandwich lol. Some nice venues downtown Tampa for bands.

I lived in Tampa for 25 years (Carrollwood area and then just north of downtown). Loved it... but visited the west and I can't see living any place else. Wesley Chapel is nice... just plan on going south too often. Traffic is just terrible as the area is becoming so developed. I could remember when there was nothing north of Lutz and even that was the boondocks. I do still visit once a year as my parents are still there.

September in FL... hot and humid. :)

lot of the racing is done on the howard franklin bridge- ever since they built the new sections- its a nice wide straight and smooth roadway

ccc is nice- but more for the cruisin than the racing...
