Waiting to leave... Sick of Sarasota (1 Viewer)

Nov 7, 2019
Howdy all! I'm currently suck in Sarasota, FL for at least a couple of weeks. I plan on heading north, but not too far, too cold. Any helpful Florida travel tips welcomed and any good winter spots north of here?
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Personally, I think Sarasota is a good place to spend the winter. I was there last year during the polar vortex and it was like mid 80s and sunny.
Anyway, if you want to move north there are city buses that will take you to Tampa for less than $10. I don't recommend Tampa or Jacksonville or Panama City. I've heard good things about Pensacola and New Orleans. Tallehasse area is ok. Not too cold or too hot.
Probably depends on what you like to do on where to go though. Florida is Florida no matter where you go. Palm trees, skeeters, and cops.

Bro Georgia is not that cold, you just need better gear.

Considering im in a house, doesnt matter either way. The people here are ignorant shits. Not one person ive met in this state is a good person.
I agree, but most of America are ignorant shits in my opinion.
Still better than Florida where there's too many home bums, drugs, et cetera

Most americans, yea. Most people worldwide, yea. But sarasota is for sure a winter stay. Warm bro, warm
Like I said, if you just had better gear... That being said though, some people do get cold more easily than others I actually personally really like weather in the 50s during the day, and 30s at night

Well, if you're willing to come up to Minnesota, come on up! A lot of free food, as I'm sure you already know.

I hear Iowa's pretty good. Maybe not as good as MN, but still good. If you go to GA, I would suggest Athens, but it's spread out, so have transportation costs figured out. Athens GA has a nice, strict winter shelter. Some places that will let you hang out all day if you buy something, a waffle house if you would rather find somewhere to sleep during the day. They have a free botanical garden (you have call the public transit to take you out there and pick you up, but it doesn't go out there normally). A great flagging spot (you'll need to take a bus).

If you're not dead set on GA, but you would rather not come back to the mid-west, I personally suggest New Mexico. Albuquerque has a lot of resources, but not much to do. You can get to Santa Fe for cheap, though. I can't suggest AZ - at least, not right now.

Florida, Georgia, Minnesota and Iowa? Y'all are doing it wrong. Although I kinda second hanging in Florida till after January if you ain't trying to go too far.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
