27 Days. We Are So Close. Please No More Surprises.
In just 27 days we will all be basking in the Florida warmth and hopefully out on our boats. Please, no hurricanes, pandemic variants, or other twists of fate please. I don’t think Putins invasion of the Ukraine’ should effect us all from keeping our heads buried in the sand of the past yet. Gas prices and inflation will be with us, but its just money. Right? Ugh, I have been waiting three years for some great Cuban food, the Dora Canal and some good genuine belly whacking.
With only 27 days til it all starts, be warned. We are in the crunch time now. Make sure your boat runs, you have a room, and are ready. It creeps up on you faster than you think. Also for those of you ready to go now. GO! There are river cruises, and Vintage boat races the weekend before. So if you went now. as in this morning, trust me you will have a blast. The show is just one small part of it all, and either a nice way to end a vacation, or start one.
So this weekend, get that gas sucker started, and your trailer all set up, and here is a trick I learned. Leave mid week. Remember its Spring break Friday and weekend travel is insane. Also Thursday the day before the show is a huge day for parties and getting the jump on stuff. So consider that.
In the following weeks, we will be giving you all some fun tips of what to do there and how to get the most out of it all. STAY TUNED. And yes, I plan on milking this for as long as I can.
We are scheduled to pull out of the driveway on Sunday (Yes, this Sunday, in only 3 days), but it looks like we will have to dig out first.
I can’t wait!! Leaving right after I sober up from St. Patrick’s day.
Move south Jim, We are complaining at 32 degrees this morning.
We have only seen 32° three times this year. Problem is if I move again an auctioneer will be involved. Not moving this stuff again. 29 truck loads last time.
And only 114 days until the Whitefish Chain Classic Boat show which is Saturday June 18th. (Pardon the plug). And if we can’t boat just yet, this Saturday is our annual Ice Tee Open golf on Ice fundraiser for Camp Knutson. SOOO, if you can’t boat on the lake – golf on the lake for a great cause!
I hope to meet many of you in Florida next month!
That event looks like fun and kudos for raising the $$$ for a worthy cause and getting folks off their assets and outside.
Cuban food and the Dora Canal, two of my favorite places!
