AWESOME - Baked will be touch soon! I think the Tampa area would be as far south as we'll get in Florida on this trip. But don't be sad southern Floridians - we should be back in Florida in 2014 to check out all of Florida!

Your annual trips have become a highlight of the forums. I enjoy living vicariosuly through your adventures.

Have you set a record of meeting the most OLS members? I respect you enjoyment of life and it was a pleasure meeting you for such a short period.

Look forward to the adventure!

Just want to say "ya'll suck!" LOL j/k ... but I saw this thread and was hoping you were heading to the southwest again. I was gonna offer you guys a place to stay on the farm (we can always use a few hands at chore time lol)

Have fun you two!
