this is for May 8-10th

ok - here is the deal - I have a DJ gig in Bama saturday night.  I love riding oak mountain that is in birmingham so I told the promoter I would drive myself and get my own hotel. 

It is a 8 hour drive from Tampa to Birmingham.

I have to work friday until around 5pm.

we would leave at 5 from Tampa and drive until we get tired - maybe 11pm - midnight - that gets us to around atlanta.

we get a hotel - wake up in the morning and drive to bama straight to oak mountain - it is a different time zone so we leave atlanta even as late as 9am puts us in birmingham at 10am local time.

we then ride oak mountain for as long as we want - I have good friends that are meeting us and guiding us around the mountain - did this once before already and is is awsome.

after the ride we go check into a hotel - shower up and then go eat at world famous dreamland bbq

go back to the hotel and chill - then you have the option of going to the party with me or resting for the ride home in the am.

wake up the next day and drive back to tampa...

I pay for all the gas/hotels and dreamland

you just pay for other meals along the way and help me share the driving

btw - I have a standard shift so if you can only drive an automatic no can do...

please get back with me if you are interested

Take someone you at least kinda know!!!!!!!
 
Got stuck in a car with a guy from work on this same kind of trip (Selma Alabama for dirtbike race) and ends up he had a crazy girlfriend that would call like every hour or so and accuse him of cheating on her. IT SUCKED!!!!
 
He was cheating on her by the way.

I recently drove back home from Helen Ga by my damn self (friends stayed up there since they had more vacation time)! It sucked to say the least. At about the half way home mark I would have loved to have just about anyone riding with me.

Pansies, I've made the drive to NC and back by myself three times now. The first time, I broke down on the way and the trip ended up taking 18 hours >:(

The last road trip I made was to Rocktown, GA (near La Fayette) on Pigeon Mountain. G/F came with me but I still did all the driving. I got pretty tired on the way up, but having company really did help keep me awake. Narrowly missing a deer helped, too :o

Have fun riding and partying ;)
