    Looks like South Florida is getting pretty wet, How's your weather Allen?

    Spoiler alert - there is ~130 miles of I75 between Palmetto and Naples which we need to take IF we don't want to have to leave at dawn on Sunday!
    Yah, Allen, the OD allows me to get the 130 miles over quicker.

    Patrick, that’s ridiculous. I guess their customers are not in “good hands”. Keep on them.

    Looks like you guys have a good start on this trip!

    Not to pry BUT how can they just drop your claim?
    Anyway to fight their decision?

    Hoping for the best outcome for you.
    Allstate states that they will repair the 35 creased shingles on the roof....replace the damaged panels on the garage door... in essence, 1350 dollars towards 12750worth of repairs... looks like I'm replacing the roof, repairing my garage door, and fixing the rest myself before switching insurance providers....

    I just booked the nights in Key West. We like the Holiday Inn in Key Largo (99701 Overseas Hwy, Key Largo, Florida 33037). It has a nice pool area and tiki bar with good food options in walking distance. I grabbed a room there for Sunday but will probably follow the group.

    Gotta figure out which car to bring now. Either the Solstice GXP or the Cutlass. Decisions, decisions.

    Yah, I’m hoping a bunch of cars hook up and cruise down together to make the trip more interesting.

    "All of the above sounds good to us,"
    didn't know y'all were going J & K, this is turning into a little HRPT.

    All of the above sounds good to us, at this point in my life (read: retired) I like to be told where to go. We’ve got confirmed reservations in Kew West.

    30 years ago, for 14 months, I spent enough money at the Hog’s Breath Saloon on Duval St to keep the doors open for a long time, I want to see if it was enough to make it this long.
    Hog's Breath is still there John. I've been there quite a few times myself.
