Got the info on this yesterday from the organizer. I think I put the doc online. Try this link KW information 2012.doc Will try to figure out how to condense it all and get it in the Region 6 calendar soon.

Can you say Duval crawl? :beer:

I would like to take the trip, but it would be cheaper to charter a jet! $4.25.9 per gallon X 13 MPG x Key West and back would wipe out my retirement.If sanity ever returns to the petroleum markets I will make the ride.:nanawrench:

You got that right. My parental units lived year round in Islamorada for nearly 40 years. Whenever I visited them we would go for a day or two in Key West. The farther south we drove on US1, the higher the prices were for everything, especially beer and lodging.

This might also be a fun drive for some of you that may not want to do the whole trip .Those in southern Fl. could meet up with the group on Thur. July 12 at one of the designated stops along the Fl. Turnpike . Then drive down with the group around the outskirts of Miami and Homestead and continue with the group along Card Sound Road and have something to eat or drink with us at Alabama Jacks around 5 pm . After , as the group heads south to overnight at the Bayside Inn in Key Largo you can head back home or even go as far as Key Largo ; which , is not that far away . You can join us by the swimming lagoon for a drink before heading home . Some may even want to spend the night with us in Key Largo and leave for home in the morning . Please drink and drive responsibly . My plan is to come up from the Key West area and meet the group at Alabama Jacks at 5 pm , overnight in Key Largo and drive south with them in the morning enjoying the Keys with it`s beautiful scenery and 42 bridges . Paulie , it was nice meeting you at the recent Super Chevy Show in Palm Beach and hope that you will come out again . Good luck with the work on your Camino and hope you will tell us a little more about it .

Bigblockpaulie , I`m embarrased to admit but just realized that you have photos on the links you posted . Man , what a build you have going ! :nanawrench: Hope you got some useful info when you and your son stopped in for a visit with us at Super Chevy at the end of March . How long have you been messing with and spending $ on it ? Would love to see more photos as you go along . I`ve received a few inquires from members thinking about doing part of the Power Cruise and hope it works out .

The Bayside Inn in Key Largo is going to add (at the discount) up until the place is full. The Sheraton Suites on the Key West end is adding rooms at the discounted rate too, but they did not confirm how many.

That is my update and :bump: for the day...:beer:

Those of you that are interested , check with Cheri Copeland if you are interested in a Lake City to Key West Power Cruise T-shirt . The one`s last year were very nice with her old VW and chickens on the design along with the name of the cruise . I`m getting three .

Its time to get signed in on this one if you want to participate in any part of it. T-shirt orders are being taken and name tags being made for all. Rooms have been added at the host hotels with the deadline extended to June 8th (I think) to make resos.
