Sorry to hear that, John. I was looking forward to spending some time with you. By all means do drive down. I know that you know your way down.

It's time to give this thread a bump. I appreciated John telling of the problem with his boat. We need to get some kind of a head count as to what to expect. Please check in here to give an accounting of who will be coming or not.

The EMTs will be there ready to hand out appropriate sedatives....

As posted earlier, I have seen the SWAT teams setting up their sniper perches.

Greetings,
Mr. Moon. I sent you a PM requesting dates/contacts/who's where etc. and have not heard back. IF we arrive at all, it will be by land for a day visit. We're firming up our flight plans this weekend. Soooo....




Oooo....Just saw the SWAT/sniper post. Should I be worried?

Sorry, I just checked my in box again, and no PM. I would say the best bet is the afternoon of the 16th, but maybe better on the 17th.

That was just Ted in the lead heading South. He has gotten into the turbo.

For easy eats next Tuesday Night (the 16th), about 1/2 mile from the marina, there's going to be a "Food Truck Invasion.

If this is your first time to a Food Truck Invasion here is what you need to know:
This is a huge outdoor picnic where food trucks of different origins, cuisine and menus prepare food that is cooked to order. It’s not fast food, as the majority of the trucks are run by regional chefs. A great deal of fusion cuisine, comfort foods and sweet treats to choose from will be available by a selection of over a dozen food trucks. Be sure to bring your folding chairs or blankets to picnic at the park grass surroundings.

Well, we've now been on and off Longboat Key for maybe three out of the last four months due to the red tide reaction of my Admiral. It's a day by day thing, but we figured we'd either be in Stuart or Ft. Pierce on the boat, or at the Miami Show, but it looks like neither one, so I guess I'll be coming across by car. Is there any particular day for heading up to Liquidators?

Never fear Larry Don's Short Bus Tours is here. You can book it at anytime. We are checking the weather daily to see what may be best. Hopefully the showers forecasted for Tuesday will not appear. That would be a good day. As LarryM posted prior to this, the food truck night should be great.

Are you bringing DWHatty and Siesta Key with you? Off Duty had indicated a strong interest, also.

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties (transmission problems) , I am laid up in Stuart for a couple of weeks. Was hoping it might be finished in time but no luck. I flew home and am taking care of neglected honey-do's. Yuck! Would much rather be there. Maybe next time.

That's a bummer, Rafe. Too bad you didn't stay in Stuart. That's a regular stop on Don's Short Bus Tours. We could have picked you up there.

We hope you do make it next time.

Don

Dwhatty is coming under his own steam Tuesday. Wheeled land vessel. ETA about 3 or 4 pm to Rodeway Inn. An unknown, hopefully not too fleabag, motel. Thence to Marina docks after checking in, unless directed elsewhere.

Anybody in the Longboat Key area needing a ride please pm me.

Great, David! Because you are coming from Maine, I anticipate that you will win the Runner up in the distance contest even though you didn't come by boat. That will be a drink of the finest Tennessee sipping whiskey from my own private stock. It was brought by me directly from Tennessee.

For the grand prize for coming the longest way on his own boat-----Alaska! Our own Site Team member Larry M. Here he is on the back deck of Hobo holding up his trophy. (ir never hurts to do a little sucking up to the moderators)



So, come one and come all to join in.
