Home. 800 miles for a great dinner/thanks Danny. Great to finally meet both of you. Great to see everyone at lunch.

 

See you at bike turkeyfest and cedar key. wave.gif

 

Danny, not to worry-the ac worked just fine on the trip home. dopeslap.gif

It was a pleasure to meet you, Marty.

 

Glad to hear you have no hypothermia symptoms. lmao.gif

 

See you at El Paseo. wave.gif

 

This tale is worthless without incriminating photographs!!!!!

Everything started off ok:

My son Cody riding the Guzzi and I was riding the Ultra Classic...As we got about 6 miles down the roade the Guzzi's charging system started giving Cody a hard time so we parked the Guzzi at the Ace Hardware and continued forward.

 

Destination: The Outback Crab Shack just south of Jacksonville Florida.

Randy, We started out the ride great with "The Old Brick Rd". Challenging but fun. It was good to meet some new people from your other site and Danny's sweet wife Laura Lee. thumbsup.gif

That was a hell of a road. I want to do it again, but with HALF a tank of gas, and TKC80s aired down to about 15 lbs, lol.

 

Nice seeing everyone again, and meeting the ones I hadnt met before!

no, crawfish = mudbugs

 

shrimp = good eats!

 

I think crawfish are closer to mini lobsters, live in the mud of the rivers and such.

Excellent photos Bill! I had my camera in the bike but after we ran so late (duh ... let's not go there dopeslap.gifeek.gif ) I didn't take any photos.

 

Great turnout and I was pleasantly surprised to see the large number of folks that I knew either locally or through the various online forums.

Randy, I think that we need to hold one of these gigs down in Dah Keys ... someplace where you can get grilled lobster. Then we'll see if you think that mudbugs are mini lobster wink.gif

 

I'm havin' a little fun with you here, but when I think of mudbugs I think of Louisiana. Do they even catch them here in Floriduh?

 

Damn ... what I'd do for grilled lobster right about now ... clap.gif

 

The food at the Outback is excellent. Their peel and eat shrimp weren't anything exotic but they were done just right and were very tasty. And although we didn't order 'gator tail this time, I've gotten 'gator tail there and had plenty of leftovers. 'gator warms up nicely for lunch and the cats really enjoy it (sort of a reversal on the normal Florida food chain I guess bncry.gif )

Good seeing you yesterday John...Glad you joined the board...

 

Thanks Bill. I think that I actually signed up some time ago but never posted anything. I'm pretty active on the ADVRider board and a few other things (I've been on the Internet BMW list since about a month after it started). I found out about the luncheon via the MTF forum but since it appears that there are so many local folks on this board I might actually stick 'round a bit wink.giflurker.gif

Glad it turned out OK. Sorry I couldn't hang around the extra day and make the ride/food (I actually drove up to Jacksonville on Friday and then back down to Tampa before leaving Saturday.)

 

Of course, I'm not so sure I'm THAT into southern cuisine to have tried crawfish. smile.gif

Sooo, you were in Jax, & didn't let me know?

 

Who's the schmuck now, clown?

 

Next time I'm in Provo...

OK, but before I get the schmuck label, here's my trip to Jax: I finished teaching my class (yeah, I guess I talk fast) at noon in St. Pete, drove to Jax to update my grandparents' computer, found out my Grandpa was just in a diabetic coma because he didn't eat after taking his insulin shot, but 2 hours and 1 ambulance visit later, he's fine, I update his iMac to OS X 10.4, we go to dinner with the fam, and then by 11:30pm I'm back in St. Pete to catch my 7:50am flight out of Tampa.

 

The idea came up just the night before and dinner really wasn't that great (Not surprised that Smokey Bones ain't doin' so hot for Darden, I can get better BBQ here in Provo).

 

However, next time I'm at the Times-Union or Record (or even Savannah, Tallahassee, or Gainesville), you'll get a call. I usually hit Florida two or three times a year, but we're so busy at work that they're just trying to have us do as much remotely as possible. Good for business, bad for my FF mileage account.
