Road Trip No. 5: VT at FSU
Gobbler Country Road Trip No. 5
Football: Virginia Tech at Florida State
Doak Campbell Stadium
Miles Round Trip: 2,020
Total Dollars Spent: ~$300 ($200 in gas, $100 in food and drink, including a case of Yuengling on the way out of Florida)
What impressed me:
- Pensacola's beaches
- The ability of certain people in a certain branch of the armed forces to talk our way out of prison after a bar fight in Panama City Beach.
- The underrated tailgate scene at FSU
- The outside of Doak
- Cory Holt
- Zaxby's fried chicken.
What didn't impress me:
- The inside of Doak
- FSU fans/noise level
- Our offensive line
- Mobile, Ala.
- The ability of certain people in a certain branch of the armed forces to recover from the previous night and make it to a football game on time. I was able to wake up at 7 a.m. and I'm a civilian. You should be used to early wake up calls.

Spanish Fort, Ala., was on the East side of the Zaxby's/Cane's dividing line. Zaxby's is much better than Cane's and it's not even close.

Roberts Stadium. This was as close as I could get. They lock it up pretty tight.
