Gasparilla 2013
 
Atlanta is supposed to sleet today, it's 32 degrees out and I'm freezing. Screw this shit. I'm headed to the beach and some debauchery at Gasparilla.

The chariot.

3 stops 528 miles and 7 hours later. Profit.

Ride over to Davis Island if you want a little peace and quiet during your visit. The area out by Peter O'Knight airport is pretty neat. Tampa was a great place to live in the '70s, hope you find it a great place to visit.
Personally, I think the growth choked it to death.

I have been to Florida many times in the past but this trip seemed different. Travelling on a bike overwhelmed the senses and arriving presented a sense of accomplishment that is rarely felt.

Saturday
 
I had never been to Gasparilla before, but the description from my friends of it and a quick Google image search told me it was something I wanted to be apart of.
