    Anyone have plans on going to the Daytona show in August? There will be a pile of us there, and it is the largest in the U.S.

    You need to get up with Nat, she is wanting to come too. I am sure Jim from J&J will be coming.

    We'd sure like to go but I doubt we'll have the money to get down there (or get back!! :mrgreen: )

    Disney (read - craploads of money) is way out of our budget this year!

    Mid east coast of Florida. Disney is close, Kennedy Space Center, etc. Lots of stuff to do in Florida! If you can afford it I highly recommend it!! Unfortunately we can't afford to go back this year.

    OMG!!! My parents are sending me to the Daytona Show as a birthday present. My whole family is going, so I will be followed by my younger sisters, but I'll be there! Finally I get to go to the greatest reptile expo in the world!

    Haha if you can fit, then you're welcome to come! lol

    Pretty much we plan to take a road trip down there, spend some time at the beach, and visit some family in Georgia, and then just pop back up to NY (thats where my parents live, and where I am previously from).

    My parents hate him, so he wouldn't be allowed to come :(.

    And he's not a huge reptile person anyway. He likes my pets, but he doesn't get as excited as I do about seeing other people's animals and picking up more stuff.
