Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Joe, you're right about the long stretch from Annapolis to Solomons. There are a few places to bail about 2-3 hours into the trip (Rhode River; Herring Bay) but then there's that long smooth stretch of coastline. My normal advice to anyone who's still here this late in the season is to GO every day you possibly can, because Old Man Winter is right behind you and its only going to get colder.

I'm reluctant to advise otherwise, But without a coat? Can we split the difference? You attend to that first thing this morning, then head out at least that first 2 hours, then finish to Solomons next day? Getting that head start on it would make it easier to beat the weather.
