      Dave, tentatively we were talking about being in Key West May 3-5. We haven't locked down anything yet though.

                  • Sounds like a fun trip. A visit to Sopchoppy is possible, but we are homeless right now. Still the HandleBar is open (back of Scooter's garage) and we spend quite a bit of time there. We building a gas station home, but don't think it will be done by the time you have your cruise.

                    Also, Power Tour friend Jim Durban lives part time in Islamorada, so I will see if I can get him to chime in, as he knows that area better than anyone I know. Might even be a guild for a day or two?

                    BTW, Enjoyed all the great pictures of y'all, thanks for sharing.

                      Tell us more

                      You going to become an independent business man in retirement?
                      Or are you converting an old gas station with lifts into a new home?

                      Personally, I like the second option best but it wouldn't be all that bad to have a source of fuel readily available.

                      • Hi DTB, good to see you here! If we drive, a stop in Sopchoppy would be a priority. I don't know a lot about Southern Florida or the Keys, Dave mentioned Islamorada, so I had to look it up on a map, and it looks like an amazing place. The next thing I like to do is read some history (not that I will retain much) because, after all I am Curious George. Here's a map of the Keys.....
