    We don't have the winds but we're getting a little snow. All the toys are put away.

    From what I hear - cars break down in Key West. Maybe you need to become a snowbird mechanic!

    We usually have to apply for vacation in February but who knows what this year will be like? Everything lined up last year but then got cancelled. I was even off on NYE. Not that I had plans.

    We're still playing it by ear with our plans. We're supposed to be in Talladega April 23-26 if they allow fans at the race. If that happens, we'll do a leisurely cruise down the coast to Bradenton and meet up with everybody.

Good to see the Key West tour is still on course ( well maybe not the right term for this group ) and we’re lookin’ forward to seein everyone, with 3” of snow on the ground here in NC it can’t come soon enough.
    Oh wow, I think they fixed the site! Yay, thanks guys!

    It's been going on for months so I'm guessing they've given up on it.

    We will be in Talladega April 23-26. After that we'll be heading toward Florida along the gulf coast. Hopefully we'll hook up with Big Dave somewhere.

    [QUOTE=cstmwgn;n1285029]Dana5 - sorry I can't seem to respond to your PM with the way this site is working now.
    Key West is open to all who are interested. This is going to be a minimally organized event - I am hoping to put out a list of potential points of interest and then let each person/car/group choose the ones that interest them the most. I am suspecting that we will need to stop somewhere in the keys the first night. I have some friends that like Marathon but I am thinking we might need to stop in either Homestead or Key Largo if we are going to spend some time in the Everglades.

    I think it is going to be a 50/50 mix on old cars vs rentals. I suspect Big Dave and Perry will bring PowerTour iron (not sure if Perry will have one of his older projects road worthy by spring). John and Kathy are coming in the Goat. Bob and Donna are still trying to decide what they are bringing. We will be taking the wagon. BelAir Bob (local down here) will be in his 57 and I believe that another friend from down here will be in one of his 60s rides.

    You would be more than welcome to attend. Maybe you can get together with Big Dave and Perry and caravan down
    ​​​​​I resemble that remark, if the Impala isn't ready we'll be in the Vette

    May 2nd
    Depart at 8:00am
    Stop at Big Cypress Preserve visitor center
    Stop at the smallest post office
    Stop at the Everglades National Park - COE visitor center
    Stop at the Everglades National Park - Flamingo visitor center
    Stop in Homestead or Key Largo for the night

    May 3rd
    Stop at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

    The rest of this is unresearched
    Stop at Biscayne Bay Visitor Center (exact location is unknown at this time)

    But just like on Power Tour - this is your vacation so you need to pick and choose which if any of these you are interested in.

    If there are other points of interest to anyone - please chime in

    You might want to look in to booking rooms in Key West if you haven't already. Things can fill up quickly down there.
