Chicago to Florida in 5 days

Me and my girlfriend took a trip this Christmas to visit my family and her friend. We made stops in Cape Coral, Naples, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Coast and Daytona. I wanted to share some of the pictures we took as I love looking at others pictures on here. There aren't many pictures of the Jeep but I figured some people would like to see some neat areas.

Got the new bumper and lights on before we left.


Waking the girlfriend up for the long ride ahead. She wasn't happy


Threw the plates on the front to avoid tickets and we are off!


Oh wait don't forget the grill and luggage!

Crazy Allegator in Tiny City


Hanging with slenderman

Such an amazing place compared to the freezing Chicago weather


This is what your hotel room looks like when you have 5 days to get to and back from Florida


Oh really now?!?! How are you supposed to survive the holidays??


And this is how you celebrate surviving all those crazy ass drivers down there

So after meeting up with my mom and grandpa we headed to meet up with my girlfriends friend in Ft. Lauderdale.


Had a few drinks at the Oasis Cafe where the table and seats swing while you eat and drink. Highly reccomended.


Had a few more drinks

After visiting her friend we had to head back to Daytona to actually visit with my dad. We stopped at the boardwalk and took a few pictures this one is candy in the process of being made at a candy shop. (I love candy)


Ferris Wheel


Daytona Beach at night I LOVE this picture although its kinda blurry.



We found this in an arcade on the boardwalk haha brought back some childhood memories.


People in Florida trying to ice skate haha

After sobering her up we headed back home but first we had to eat at Waffle House


90% of the Jeeps I saw on the trip were being towed like this


This was somewhere in Tenesee I can't remember


The mountains, this may be uninteresting to you, but we don't get to see stuff like this in Chicago.


This was my speed/mpg about the whole trip, I had a ton of added weight both ways.

She was passed out so I put my glasses on her and took a picture


Some "Off Roaders" in Kentucky at a gas station not one single Jeep



99% of my trip was this kind of weather, thats why I don't have many good pictures.

Overall a great trip and the Jeep handled the weather amazingly. Somewhere in Kentucky my check engine light came on and it looks to be my O2 sensor but I'll get that fixed up. Also I know many people may disagree but the Jeep was extremely comfortable and way better than my Ford Tarus for the trip, No back problems to report
