straight trippin' to the panhandle

i'm getting ready to go to FL on a trip with the family. here's a list for getting into a preparation mindset. please comment with suggestions. we're going to Panama City Beach. they call it the Emerald Coast the 'Red Neck Riviera' on the interwubs. still reading about it. all i know is, it has white sand beaches, clear blue water, and 80 degree temp this time of year. oh and we're going to miss MTV-U being there for Spring Break '08 by days. lucky us?!

  • new sunglasses - probably cheap ones, always losing them, currently without any
  • evaluate the beach chair situation - upgrade if need be
  • new swimsuit for her, preferably small ;)
  • map(s) - free, contact tourist board
