Lost the job, now going to the Keys!

ok boys and girls, i had a fun run at the cigar shop in town but they broke up with me today, offered me a nice severance package to boot.

anywho, i know how to stealth camp and am planning on heading to the keys for a few days. way i figure gas in the KLR aint that bad, so why not ride down since ive never been? ive got no schedule, so i can do whatever i want!

if any of yall care to spot me a few trees in the yard to hang my hammock from between here and the end of the USA, shoot me a PM! not sure if ill get it after i take off, but hey, ya never know!!!!

And everything seems to belong to somebody. It can cost as much as a hotel room elsewhere to park my tiny rv trailer there. Way too much traffic too!!!! If you want some better water go further south is my recc..
Turn right for another 1,000 miles then south again-my two cents...

If you've never been to the Keys, then go. Who knows ? You might like it. I do.
I got tired of being here, so now I'm there

Love the lower Key's and have worked (ha) there in the past. KW has a tractor beam effect - it was easy for me to get sucked into the island lifestyle. And felt sick when I left - but that could've been my liver talking . I also came to Daytona in the hay day of spring break and never left - could be me.

If ya like to get down you'll love it - if not a weekend is enuff.

Guns keep society safe.

The Keys are sort of beach and historical all rolled into one.

This is a great time of year to go, but I doubt there will be any stealth camping once you leave the mainland. You should check the Tent Space thread for availability.

Don't forget to try the frozen chocolate covered Key Lime pie on a stick. I'm not much for sweets, but could eat those all day long!

Everyone should see the Keys and Key West at least once. The weird gravitate there. And although it's supposed to be illegal to sleep in public places plenty of people do it although I'll bet that if you crash in any of the parks you will get busted.

I once gave a homeless guy/street musician some money to watch my motorcycle and a few weeks later he was on the national news talking about the rights of the homeless and how the Key West cops had yet another crackdown in force.

There are two RV campgrounds on Stock Island (that's the last island before you cross the short bridge to Key West) that *MAY* have some tent camping. As I recall Boyd's used to have some tent camping but they are also the most expensive campground that I have ever parked my RV at.

Have fun. It's a beautiful place. Tremendous history.
