Post Wild Horses Florida Run Questions

Plans are coming together... leaving March 7th.
1 week in West Palm Beach (March 9 - 17)
1 week in Key Largo - Islamorada - Marathon (18 - 27)
Still looking for input on places to see, do, stay, eat at and party at.
Looking for suggestions on where to keep my truck and trailer in Key Largo?

What is the best route to take from Ontario???
Detroit I75 to the Florida Turnpike OR
Buffalo I90 - (I79 or I77) - West Virginia Turnpike - I95.

Is there anything the kiddies would love to see along either of these routes?

Thanks for the input in advance.
Trevor

75 is a better/ easier drive
Holiday Isle in Islamorada (Atlantic side)
and Faro Blanco in Marathon (Gulf Side)

I second I75 for ease. Be forwarned, however, the trip is ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ boring...

Hey Ryan, meet a friend of yours over the weekend , his shop is about a mile from my house,I saw your powerhead sitting on the floor. John has some nice boats around the shop!

Hoilday Isle in Islamorda, you can keep your trailer at HARBOR LIGHTS, big parking lot there, have fun
75 to the turnpike, might spend a few more dollars but you will get there faster.

John is a great guy. One of the best Outboard and set-up guys around. That powerhead is for my little yellow V-bottom that is for sale. I started working on my Skater yesterday. Lots of work to do. Gotta get it ready to race St Cloud. I am working on a design for the 32 you were in the other day. Paul is also a good friend of mine.

John seems like a very nice guy,when I was there he was rerigging the 28, did you see the 24 skater he had there, So your gonna race in St.Cloud should be a good race I know that 24 John has in his shop is gonna race also. I'll see ya there.

Ribs and Elbow still sore. Too Old is bringing his boat down this week or some new graphics. Might race a few races too. Why don't you run St Cloud. 24's could take over P2.
