Hey Ted ... we made it from Punta Gorda to Fort Myers Yacht Basin today. Not quite to the first lock. Hope to make Okeechobee tomorrow, then on to Ft. Pierce. Cheers.

Sitting between the dolphins on the rim canal just outside of Clewiston. Stopping in Stuart tomorrow night. Hope to be in Fort Pierce early afternoon on Thursday.

This will be my first big trip..

We are in Delray heading up the ditch for a Thursday arrival. Today is a beautiful Florida day, absolutely no wind on this side Ted so it can only get better as you come across the big O.

Safe travels.

Where are you staying the night before you cross?

Sonas is leaving JAX on the 24th, will be in West Palm on the 27th, then crossing on the 28th to Lucaya if we have the right weather.

I hope to be in by noon tomorrow (spending the night in Peck Lake anchorage tonight) but I pledge $100.00 to your beer run and can give it to you tomorrow if you want to stock up.

Thank you...it shouldn't be a big deal as there will be enough cars and sources that are only a few minutes away.....we do appreciate your generosity.

Perfect! You'll be just in time for happy hour on Hobo from 4-6pm on Friday followed by Friday Fest (500 yards away) advertised as the longest running street party on the Treasure Coast (5:30-9pm) for music, food and fun. Hobo's on A-14 within 500 yards of the fest.

Everyone's invited for happy hour. We'll have beer, wine and munchies. Come one, come all.

We have the same gate code as Don but you can send us a PM if you don't have it.

And despite what Don says, engine room tours will be provided.

It is with real sadness that I have to withdraw from this event. I have a sever sinus infection that has me down and out. The meds are starting to work, however I just don't trust myself in a long run and single handed. Heck, I can't stay on my feet for any period of time. This is a total bummer. My best to all, have fun.

Dang, John, that is bad luck. I was looking forward to seeing you again. Here's hoping you're back on you feet in no time at all. If you feel like driving down come on.

OK, Larry, it looks like I am going to have to restate the one hard and fast rule for this gathering. NO DAM ENGINE ROOM TOURS!!!
