Re: What to do when the wind's don't cooperate

I've been to Key West twice. Nothing ever changes.

If you don't drink to excess, you won't fit in.

Seriously though, as much as I like a good binder as much as the next guy, that place can be sad at times. Walk the streets very early in the morning and you will find some serious alcoholics that haven't gone to bed yet or are sleeping wherever they stopped walking.

To avoid complete hypocrisy, I've always made it back to my own bed, but seemed to be giving it my best shot not to.

My doctors say I'm not allowed to return.

I love the Florida Keys. Unfortunately, Key West is now one of the domestic ports for cruise ships heading to the Caribbean, so you may see several hundred/thousand more folks suddenly wandering the streets in search of trinkets.

Re: What to do when the wind's don't cooperate

james, you can find an online calendar for when the cruise ships hit KW. The trick is to pick one of the days when none of them are in port, and then hope everyone who actually lives there hasn't closed for that lay day.

Five thousand of your new best friends, all hitting the same place at the same time. Yeah. What fun.
