Default Anyone Remember the 70's?

Great video. Was everything so much simpler back then or does it just seam like it. For anyone over fifty this should take you back.

And yes, there is a boat in it! Great water shot at the end.Enjoy:

yup,thats back when normal workin folk could still
own property in the keys . I have tons of good memories of the keys growing up back in the late 70s before the greedwhore developers and yuppies destroyed the keys for normal people.
My dad had a place down in Marathon right on the ocean where we go every weekend in the 70s till mid 80s when the taxes started to get ridiculous, singlewide trailer on a 50x100 lot on a canal 1/2 block from oceAN, he paid $15k in early 70s , sold it for $150k in mid 80s not because he wanted to but because he was strugling trying to keep up with the taxes and insurance on it., today its worth over 1mill.. long live greed,,one of the reasons I left south florida as much as I had loved it,,everything I grew up with has long been sold/bulldozed/destroyed to line somebodys pocket and the hell with the average joe or the natural wonder it once held...Only good part is knowing all the greedy fuks that lost thier shirt on the condo/real estate boom this past couple of years and all the rotting corpse buildings lining the Miami skyline , an empty shelled testament to their greed.

"If you can remember the 70's - You weren't there."

I don't recall who said that, but it's pretty accurate.
Retired! Boating full-time now.

I remember and trully miss the 70's.. Different and better times I think. COL. LOTO. Rock River, Miss... Lake Michigan boating was simpler and in all honesty less stressfull.
Not ot mention the music.. when music was music and not some BS rich fat guy rapping, (no true lirycs, no real melodies.. not a whole lot of artsistic creation. <.02> ) and making gizzilions..
