Maintenance Costs will be what they blame when they try to close all motorized (and later wheeled) access. It's not a new scam, they use it frequently.

...about going North too early. It would seem that the bike is not happy about being north of Key Largo, can't say that I blame it, even if it was only 60 and breezy today.
