Default 2010 Mar Ft Myers Offshore Naples run

This weekend I participated in the Ft. Myers Offshore (FMO) Naples run. For me it started at the very north of Charlotte Harbor, south to the Sanibel Causeway bridge, and then down to Naples, a total round trip of 180 miles. I burned 72 gallons of 93 octane, that 2.5MPG!

Here are the 54 pictures I took, video to follow.

As soon as I edit and post the video, I will post a link to it.

I think that was the first run you have missed Dan in the last 2 years. I only know one other guy who has done more. LOL

Here is the video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Wbn7RKSbjo

See you soon, Dan.

Here is the video from this weekends FMO Naples run. I posted about 3 minutes, in 1080HD. The rest of the footage, well, it is on the cutting room floor. Not terrible, but just to shaky to post.

Enjoy.

I was crazy cold and one of the most windy days of boating, I can remember in a very long time.

Maybe we should give Al Gore another Noble prize for his slide show on global warming (what a crok).
