      Yeah Bruce, too much of the cold white stuff around here to drive them all winter. Really getting them started consists of taking the battery tenders off of them and turning the key. Not much drama. We have an event with our Oldsmobile club today so we're going to take the Cutlass out. It's supposed to be 58 today so it might be topless. LOL. It's 25 outside now.

        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.

        Ed, my guess is this is what he is building. Some updated progress photos should be in order by now.

          I wish progress was being made but the reality's of weeks of rain, soil tests, Energy reports, and actually getting estimates from sub contractors has proved to be a challenge. Still, Bob the Builder is making progress, with site work, thanks to a good friend who is lending me his little Ford 770. It's small but a lot faster than a wheel barrel. So far I have leveled 4 tandem loads of fill and will order 2 more tomorrow. In FL you can't build on grade ! Rain, Snow, Wind . . . we all have our challenges eh !

            You are absolutely correct!
            I'll be watching for reports, both from the trip and the construction.

                            • Hello Group, I’m trying to get info. on the Key West trip. Can someone point me to the details? I live in Fort Lauderdale and go down frequently. A while back a group out of Northern Florida did a yearly run that I did 4-5 times, was a blast.

                              Thanks

                                This trip is in noway associated with the Key West Power Cruise of old. It is not organized nor does it have any scheduled events. Sunday night some of us are staying in Florida City. Monday night thru Thursday morning we are staying at the Silver Palms Inn. I had posted a list of potential points of interest and activities for folks to choose from.

                                The Key West trip discussion started on Page 11. Page 16 has a listed of potential stops / points of interest.
