I've never blogged before so I'm not sure if this will even be seen, but here goes... My partner of 23 years, Joel, our two small dogs, and I are heading south for a few weeks. I just retired from Chipotle after 13 years and wanted to spend a bit of time in the sun relaxing and sipping a few cool drinks. We leaving Chicago this Thursday, January 19th, arriving Boyd's Campground in Key West on Monday the 23rd. We've been to Key West a few times but never in an RV, so we're hoping Boyd's is really as good as it looks in the brochure!
We just bought a 2012 42' Itasca Ellipse but won't be getting delivery until mid-February, so we'll be camping with our current baby, a 2008 35' Tiffin Allegro Bay. We tow a 2008 Mini Cooper convertable, which is an absolute ball to drive around at our destinations. I'm considering trading it for a new Jeep Wrangler with an automatic so Joel will be able to drive it - he's not too keen on the 6 speed. I don't have any experience with a Jeep but I understand it can be taken out of gear and towed 4 down as an automatic, which makes it easy and fun since the top can be taken off/down.
If anyone will be in KW during the last part of January and the first part of February, please look us up; I'll buy the first one!
