View Full Version : Trip from TX to the FL keys. jump in for whole or part of the trip
30th August 2010, 02:18
I'm planning to ride from central TX to Key West FL sometime in Sept.
I want to stop in New Orleans for at least a day and a few stops in FL. I'm a lowroller and prefer cheap motels on the road as long as it's in a safe place. If anyone is interested in going along for all or part of the trip let me know.

Let me know when you hit Miami and I will ride with you to Key West.
I will be going on vacation in Sept also, so I might be out when you are in the area. Just let me know about what date you will be in the area.

Here's to a safe journey. It looks epic!

Epic was from New Orleans to Fort Lauderdale.
That was something like 14 hours and almost 900 miles.
I promised myself I'd never do over 1,000 miles in a day agan since my Philly to Kansas trip in 1998. Well, this was too close to that.
From Fort Lauderdale I went to Miami and now I'm in Key West.
Internet access has been bad until today so I'm just collecting all the post- New Orleans pics and vids in my laptop for later editing when I get home.
I'm not reall happy with the first vid I posted so I'll re-edit it and repost it.
Well, it's back out to Margaritaville for another round.
Don't worry, it's walking distance from the hotel.

Since the direction of this thread changed from planning a trip to documenting one I started a new thread with all the videos here.
