Donít you need a passport for Key West? I heard they seceded from the Union sometime in the early 80ís. Maybe it was the surrender part I missed!

It was during the 80's, while I was living in Ft. Lauderdale. They called the new nation the Conch Republic. Had their own Navy (some of the fishing boats painted Conch Republic Navy on the sides of their vessels) and they had an Air Force (some of those planes with pontoons).

It was over problems with getting the State of Florida and the Federal government to improve the fresh water lines, roads, etc., going down into the Keys. They actually had an old cannon on one boat, went out a few miles off the coast of Marathon Key (I think), pointed North and fired! The shot heard around the world, or at least that Key.

The whole thing was pretty funny and the Governor of Florida at the time, played along with it too. Everything got settled and the Keys were allowed back into the Union.

Hello,

I've done some research on Florida State Park campgrounds for an upcoming trip in March and I've found that none of the campgrounds on the Keys allow pets. The nearest state campgrounds to the Keys that do are Jonathan Dickinson (above West Palm Beach) and Collier-Seminole (near Naples). I recommend you check out ReserveAmerica.com asap for reservations as the Florida State Park campgrounds get pretty booked up during the winter months.

We are starting to plan our south Florida stay for November and December of 2014. Would appreciate any updates on recommendations for anywhere from Homestead all the way down to Key West.

Thanks,

Mark & Girlie

I have stayed in all of the State Parks in the Keys and they all allow pets. Usual restrictions: always leashed , no "tie-outs", can't leave unattended ( which means outdoors - pets secure in your camper are fine as long as they are quiet). No pets on the beach.

Spent Christmas this year at Long Key and there were lots of dogs...

That must quite a chip--my '06 Ram 3500 gets 13MPG towing a 1965 Overlander at 60MPH.
