Lew,
I am in Lake San Marino RV "resort" until tomorrow morning when I leave and head down through the everglades avoiding Miami hooking up with US1 in Homestead.

Used to live in Kendall, just South of Miami. Can be beautiful down there when the weather is good. Believe it or not, in the two years I lived there I never got to Miami. I guess being an Okie, I just got a-feared of the big city. I was told by the locals that I didn't drive near fast enough to make it out alive. I don't envy you pulling that big AS down there. Oh yes, I lived in Alachua, just outside High Springs where I see you spent some time. Now that's more my style up there in Northern Florida.

Just so I'm clear, weren't you the one that just had the coach repaired? If so, my heart goes out to you....I'd be beside myself at this point, but glad to see you're coping.......

Hi Michelle,

Your luck has been very unfortunate in the last several months. But hopefully it is about to change. As you drive down US 1 you can feel all the stress just melt away the further south you drive. We were in the Keys last January but unfortunately without the Airstream. We did take the time to check out campgrounds along the way. One of the better campgrounds for hookups (IO) is Sunshine Key Fun Resort and Marina, MM 39, Big Pine Key, (305) 872-2217. There were two Airstreams with beachfront sites. One even went so far to pull into a back-in site for the view. This was too much! I certainly regretted being there without my Airstream. Boyd's is a little cramped for my taste. With that said, it is still Key West afterall! NOT BAD!

Say, as you are coming and going from Sloppy Joe's look up and wave. There is a live web cam there. Let us know when you going and we can watch for you on the webcam. The site is www.liveduvalstreet.com. Soak up some of that kicked back living for all of us!

Be careful out there and hope to meet somewhere out there on the road...

Vickie (Mrs. Towdaddy)

Oh Michelle, that is a nasty dent. I was hoping your troubles would end with the brake saga. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk more at the Can Opener. May the waves of the ocean drown all the troubles and wash them out to sea. Yeah, the Conch Republic is not made of the same stuff as the mainland. The karma has GOT to be better. Enjoy your stay in the Keys.

Yow - thats a lot of hassles of daily living for just one Florida retreat!

To maybe avoid one more hassle, beware Miche; the portuguese man-o-war or 'bluebottle' jelly fish have made my late winter Tortugas dives a pain before. The jellies get pulverized on the reef so the water is alive with tentacles, if you get out there just don't rub against yourself doing scissors kicks or pressing your arms against your body & if you feel a little bite DO NOT SWAT, SWIPE, OR SCRATCH IT since there will be 500 stingers that hadn't fired lurking where you felt the first tickle....
