    Working 10 hour days now. Not taking a check yet though every time I make a profit I buy more equipment. I'm thinkin the same route as last time. The stretch we did just before the pic with Larry (DM)napping at the stop was good.
    BTW he is IN but he wants us to gentle. And unless you actually made it into BUDS no smart assed comments about cold water.:lol3


    All the pics of modded SV 650s showing up might get me off my ass to have mine ready for a shakedown ride. If hell freezes over I'm tring to pay for the forklift i just bought

    The Clewison route was no where as nice as round two. Aren't you tired of riding the levees yet?
    Last time some met in Haines City and some in Arcadia. We rode through Immokolee then everglades estates to Jane's Scenic Hwy. That will bypass the BS on east Tamiami
    IIRC the route should still be @dualsportmaps.
    I'll check after I eat dinner and update my price list for a customer.

    So you are talking about find Everglades Blvd and heading into the Squares and then making your way down and around to Janes Scenic Road then over to 29 and then south to Eveglades City?

    After you cross over I-75 and get into the Squares you would go to 52nd Ave and head west to Miller St. Then head south to 100th ave/Stewart blvd. That crosses the squares and takes you Janes Scenic. Last time I was out there, a year ago, you couldn't take Everglades Blvd All the way down to 100 Ave/ Stewart.

    It's all named and numbered but isn't really maintain real roads. Lots of little side roads but most dead end at canals. Only a few have bridges. The east side of the squares is tricky as its all part of the ' glades reclamation project. Easy to end up on the wrong side of the security shack. Well you do have to work at that but Kyle B and I had fun getting there. Security was amazed we got there but they didn't shoot us!!

    Mrs. Z says if we're staying at the Hotel California, we'll bring the tents and sleeping bags and set up in the courtyard of the hotel next to the bikes. :lol3

    It's probably better than the rooms. :deal

    I nominate DRZ as the official ride navigator:deal he can get us within 50 miles more or less
    I called the Corps of Engineers for the detour route through the squares to Jane's last time.
