    Enjoy Beer Week, but you might consider closed toe shoes and a warm hat........
    Snow will be gone in a couple more days, 40's and 50's next week then back to the ice box.......

          • 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 together.

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

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

                            • Hey Y’all. This thread kept locking up my device, I got “P’d” and walked away from it for a couple months. Seems to be OK tonight. 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.
