Hey all, I'm in Orlando and I'm thinking how cool it would be if we could get some southeast Element owners together to caravan down to the Keys for a weekend.

It would basically just be the price of gas as the main concern. We could all resolve to get neighboring oceanside campsites at Bahia Honda or Long Key.

Think about it... a long line of E's driving down for a few days of turquoise water, sandy beaches...

(Grilling)

(Snorkeling)

(Tropical drinks... ok, cheap light beer)

(Guys with chiseled abs and girls in skimpy bikinis... Ok, well, I'm not doing any sit-ups... let's just all wear whatever until we're drunk enough to all look good.)




Let's organize something, here. I'll spearhead it if there's some interest.

OK, Step One...

I suppose the first step is to figure out an approximate date... It's going to start getting warmer in the Keys soon (I say we aim for 80 degree weather?) and we may have to move quickly in order to keep from sweating all night long...

What do you guys think?

I agree with ron"E"boy, pick a date and let everyone work it out if they can. This trip has the potential of being 'THE EAST COAST' meet of the year.

Seriously, pick a date, to quote a good friend of mine,
"Build it and they will come".


Besides, it will be a great chance to see The Don. :-D

Setting a date...

I'm glad there are so many interested parties... As it stands, I'm thinking mid-february and will have exact dates as soon as I can. I'm going to feel out the feasibility of getting 5-10 adjacent campsites at Long key or Bahia Honda, and will post results both here and in a new "official" thread very soon.

Lived in Florida since 1991 and never been to the Keys....I've been thinking about taking some time off next month, so this could be my chance to get south of Miami....keep us posted.

Campsite availability not looking good...

So...

I looked into keys campsites (State parks) on reserve america, and the availability in February is non-existent... I don't mean we can't get 10 campsites... I mean we can't get ONE campsite...

So, what are the alternatives that everyone would like to consider? Pack us all in to another, private campground, if possible? Wait until better availability? Meet up in the Florida City/Homestead Wal-Mart parking lot, circle the wagons, and have a hobo-style bonfire?

Love the Keys, Last time we were there we rented a 1.5M place in the gulfside tip of Summerland for $2000/wk.

If I can get a decent airfare, this will provide me with a reasonable excuse to make the trip.

Anyone up for riders??

Keys Trip

I would not mind driving down for a day or two. Don't know about Bahia becuase its hard as heck to get a space there but we can always hit the Holiday Inn. :eoc::food004::mystery:
