    they didn't need a sticky at the rate you guys post before those events. I'm surprised you have anything left to say at the campsite. you're like middle school girls on facebook. :type

    Good job Matt,
    What do you think about some GPS routes/tracks? Maybe street tracks to show the real Florida that few people know about and perhaps some offroad tracks of places that are public/newbie friendly.

    So maybe I didn't think this one through.

    Spent around 4 hours on links today. Hope you guys like the ride reports I added.

    By the way, I'm not asking personal permission from the OP's of these threads. If I posted a thread of yours and you'd like me to take it down, please let me know.

    I would add the fact that you can get 3 bedroom vacation rental In central Fl for the price of a good hotel.
    Just don't fall for the timeshare tours.:puke1 That is unless you are a professional moocher, my daughter will schedule 3 tours for $100 cash each one day to have spending $$ when they visit. She has her kids trained to start raising hell after the required 90 minutes and the resort can't get them out fast enough.:lol3

    Google Central Florida vacation home rental http://www.google.com/search?q=central+florida+vacation+home+rental&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:eek:fficial&client=firefox-a

    Thinking about coming to Sanibel Island in November. Looking for resort recommendations. Bringing the wife and kids (ages 1 and 3).

    Good Luck

    The last time I stayed on the island we rented the downstairs of a house from some folks that were out of town.

    If you don't want anything expensive or upscale you can always try Jenning's Fish Camp, they've got cabins but they're not on the beach

    There's all prices to be paid there on Sanibel

    We were there for a wedding this past March and the traffic was terrible too

    Just not the same place as my youth but then where is?

    If want to rough it a bit get a State Park Cabin on Cayo Costa

    My girls hate it so yea,

    It's really great :lol3

    I suppose you're looking to take the little ones shelling and that would be great on Sanibel

    With them being so young you really need a place right on the beach :nod

    Where are you going to fly into? :ear

    It's on captiva, but for kids you can't beat south seas plantation.

    I have to go to Orlando for a week for work so I am riding down on my SV.:evil. Looking for some good evening rides and/or dinner locations. I will probably be at a crappy hotel by Universal like last time. I like to play photo tag too but don't know the area well. Is there one near Orlando? Anyhoo any suggestions?? Or wanna meet up for a little ride?

    There you go Williefast, Click on "view larger map" below the map.
    Anyway, that's a nice ride from Universal that doesn't take all day.
