I am looking into it Kelly!

Big Question, how to get from Tampa Bay Airport to the hotel without renting a car...... I am sure it is a bit more than I would want to walk :sign_kitelife:

Also, I would like to bring my kitestakes, would that be a issue? (the ones I sell)

Walt,

There are many options for transfer from the airport to the "Bird", not the least of which is a ride from one of us, based on your arrival. Short of that there are shuttle options, taxis and car services. Just do a search for travel options to Treasure Island from TPA.
Once your flights are set let us know when you arrive (and leave) and no doubt someone could hook you up with a ride. Certainly Alden or I would help if the timing works out right.

I will be there!

I have booked the room at T-bird, and need to wait a couple weeks to book the flight. I will probably arrive Friday evening on Southwest Airlines at Tampa Bay Airport, and leave Monday morning/afternoon. Hopefully everything will coalesce into a great time for all!


I will finally be able to say "AARRR" like a pirate...... :sign_kitelife:
