We had to make a stop at Lenny’s with our GPTMC friends Jeff and Lauren. This is a must stop in Clearwater not only for their great breakfast, but also for their Phillies pride around the diner! It made us feel like we were back in Philly.
Bright House Field was full of Phillies fans and they all wanted to take their picture next to the statue.
This statue was only one of 20 six-foot statues that will be placed around Philly between April and August. On March 29 all Phanatic works of art will be unveiled at the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. This is a great way to see all of them before you can begin your own adventure trying to find all 20 around the city.
Troy and I had a great time on our Phearless Phanatic Roadtrip. We loved all your comments and for following our trip down.
Keep checking in as you may never know when another adventure may begin!
It’s Wednesday and we are about to make it to Clearwater. Before we finally made it there, we had to make one more stop. On the long drive, Travis mentioned that he has never gone to Disney before. We all know that Disney is the place where all your dreams come true, so the Phanatic and I made sure we would take care of this for Travis. We surprised him with a stop at Epcot and took some great pics. Travis was so happy and we even made some fellow Phightin’ friends.
Clearwater here we come.
Welcome to the sunshine state Phightin fans! We crossed the border last night as we saw a line of palm trees pointing us towards oranges, warmer weather, and of course SPRING TRAINING! As we cruised down 95, we heard the distant vroom of engines, and the furry guy in the back wanted to check it out so we made a slight right towards Daytona Beach, home of the Daytona 500 and, luckily for us, BIKE WEEK!! As we came up to the legendary racetrack, some of the bikers saw what we were rolling with. Four cylinders, 7 horsepower, and a purring engine (most likely with a hairball in it).
We were talking some trash and of course had to race for pink slips. Did we win? Of course we won! But we couldn’t fit a harley davidson in the back so we asked for them to take us around the track instead.
You all know as well I do that good things come to an end, and we had a great time in Daytona, but the NL Champs are calling.
Hey Phillies fans, it’s your favorite Road Trip Duo! Just finished our stop to South of the Border. For those of you who have not been before, it’s a fun stop on 95 and the Phanatic went wild.
The Phanatic darted towards a clothing store which had an ‘around the world’ theme. Troy and the Phanatic spent hours messing around and trying to do their best Bob Marley impression. In other news, Troy still can’t sing.
The Phanatic was strutting his stuff in his sumbrero and feeling like the ‘head honcho’, so he challenged a pink guerrila to a wrestling match, but lost. Don’t worry Troy and I saved him just in the nick of time.
We went back on the road anxiously awaiting our stop in Savannah, one of the most amazing places the Phanatic has ever been. Savannah is known for its historic town squares and legendary views of the Savannah River from the River Walk.
We all went to check it out, and believe it or not the Phanatic jumped on a ship named The Peacemaker. The crew was startled at first, but once they saw it was the Phanatic, they treated him like he was the ‘king of the world’. Troy and the Phanatic did their best Titanic impression, and then it was time to hit the road to Florida.
South Carolina and Savannah were great places to stop and see, but we’re destined for Clearwater. With love, Philly.
We hit the road and aimed for Richmond , VA. After scooting around some Washington , D.C. traffic it was smooth sailing until dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings in downtown. The Phanatic was starving so he decided to take matters into his own hands and he went into the kitchen and cooked us up some mean burgers. All three of us want to send a shout out to the staff at Buffalo Wild Wings for hanging out with us and letting the Phanatic do his thing!
Baltimore and Richmond have been great but it’s time to go!
With love from Philly!
Check in over the next few days to see all the stops on our adventure.
