    Ed, my guess is this is what he is building. Some updated progress photos should be in order by now.
    You are absolutely correct!
    I'll be watching for reports, both from the trip and the construction.

    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 !

    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.

    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.

    Really looking forward to it, DTB! We uncovered all the cars the other day and got them all started. Now we just have to wait for some warm weather to get them out.

    Ya THINK ? Glad they are professionals because there are a lot of Tiki bars between Mobile and Sopchoppy.
    As a bonus, there is also the added benefit of a lift in the HandleBar if anyone's ride is in the need of a little extra lovin.

    Love to have PT visitors DTB

    We flew down to Hilton Head for a few days. It was nice to be outside in warm weather.

Leaving out Friday morning and traveling to Ocala. Perry, myself and Andy, who will rendezvous with us there, will be staying at the Sleep Inn just south of town. Then on Saturday, maybe tour Don Garlits before heading to Allen's house.

    I have no clue about Ocala - they may be planning on doing Don Garlits's place on Saturday morning.
    As to the barbecue - I am thinking about starting the butt about 7:00am which then would allow us to eat around 5:00pm. I will need to get a final head count in April so that I can figure out what else we will need to cook to feed everyone as I can't imagine I can do enough pork for everyone.
    We may go to Don's that morning then head to you Allen. Shouldn't take but 2-3hrs to drive it.
