Key West Awaits


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!
