Re: To all my Northern Sailing Friends...
Yup! Florida is nasty. Don't even think of comin' down here, specially after January 30th. There's bugs, snakes, gators, sharks and huge birds that'll poop all over yer boat. Most of the marina's are filled to the brim and the facilities are nasty due to the failing economy. There's nowhere to anchor either. Ugh...and the Keys... totally gross, they are! I was thinking of goin' down there just to see if anything has improved lately. I'll let ya all know in a couple months if its worth makin' a trip down here. But for right now, if I were in the north, I'd stay put and enjoy the beautiful, scenic snow covered evergreens. Ouch! Ow! Dang... another giant skeeter bite....oh, my, my, my does it hurt!!!
