    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.

    Well, we are thinking/planning on leaving Sunday morning early so we can stop at Big Cypress Preserve, Everglades National Park and other points of interest between here and Homestead. Spending Sunday night somewhere around Homestead / Key Largo and then take in some other points of interest (John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Big Pine Key (Key Deer), Bahia Honda. I am also contemplating having a barbeque here on Saturday afternoon. It is a pretty good drive from here to Key West - 400 miles / 6 1/2 hours if you take I75. We are thinking about taking US41 from Naples to Homestead (2 lane road - a bit more scenic but a little slower).

    Dave, we're going to be in Talladega the weekend before that for the race. It sounds like something that we would definitely be interested in.

Depending on your interests, there is Tiki Bar hoppin, visiting the smallest police station in the country, visiting the Panacea Marine Lab with touch tanks, we had glass bottom boat tours at Wakulla Springs (not sure if they are still doing that), and various other things such as shopping, eating, and visiting micro breweries in Apalachicola.

    We are on the Forgotten Coast but there are a few things to do. Plus, Bob there will be Miller Lite at our own "Handlebar !"

    No Julie McCord DTB
    Thanks for thinking of me DTB!! Hopefully, we'll be able to slide on by and see you guys.
