Florida or bust

Three friends muster all the sobriety they can to enjoy a rocky road trip down south

And even though we had never before spent that much time together, we were excited and had great expectations, anticipating the warm air and white sand. We left at 3:30 in the morning. We wanted to drive for nine hours and stop at a hotel at the halfway point of our journey so we could soak up some southern rays by a pool.
