    A trip to S FL.

    Only one day of off road and it was mild. Very dry down there. Met up with a old Navy bud who took us out on one of his boats. He is the swamp buggy 2016 champion. We didn't take his rig out because it was so dry. Name:  image.jpg

    South Florida and Moab look a lot alike, so no need to do a special trip out west .

    Glad you had a great vacation with the family. Some great pics there.

    3100 miles in 9 days. I think Moab may have less water and no giant lizards.

    The boat pics are all in Naples or just off the coast. We put the boat in at the Bayview park boat ramp. Enjoyed a few meals at Goldie's and the Black Eyed Pig. We based out of the Naples Grande Resort. I love that area.

    Never went to the Goodland because my bud is friends with the owner of Stans. We went down that way a few times by boat. The raw oysters at Stans are 3" long. I wasn't driving the boat, so I was able to take in a bunch of cold ones and piss in the ice filled troft.I was very impressed with the food at Noodles Itailion Cafe. They had Peroni Beer so I new they were a real Itailion place. When I am out of town, I love to eat where the locals eat. Mostly because I'm cheap.

    Hey WT....I was down in FL at the same time (boat shopping). I mostly stayed in the Clearwater/Tarpon Springs/N. Tampa area. We did 2507 miles in seven days in a 2017 Impala.
