    How did breakfast go guys? Sorry I wasn't able to make it, I've had a fever for a few days and bad allergies. I feel like I've been hit by a truck.

    Kyle are you leaving this week?

    Some of the Wankers are heading to Everglades City for the all you can eat seafood buffett before stonecrab season is over. We need help with a big dualsport route V-strom and tiger 2 up, n00b on a new Mulistrada, GS 1200 and a demented FF on a 1200 Bandit from Arcadia thru Picayune Strand and Jane's Scenic.
    Southeast Highlands/County line Rd to Ellie Ln looks promising if it is open here 27.06358,-81.561766 Usually I would say that is a gate blocking the road but it just doesn't look like a gate to me ,more like a cattle grate. Anyone ever been there?:ear

    Yes, leaving this week. Looking forward to getting back to the mountians! Tommy has an emergency kit for you, for the recovery vehicle (jeep). You just need a place to tie it in. If you should get time to escape Florida in the heat of the summer, call me, you've got a place to stay.

    Alex, go to the Southeast forum and ask for a route. There's some real good stuff through TN, NC, VA, and WV. I'm not the best with routes, but if you ask, someone will probably lay out a whole route for you, from start to finish.
    Just make sure and keep me in the loop for a place to stay (Bristol,TN). I'd like to join in for a couple of days if possible too!

    Tommy if you guys are going to breakfast in the morning post up where or text me. I got the jeep done and ready for the glades this weekend today so I might have bought myself some breakfast time.
