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!

Hope you like Boyd's. Another great campground that we usually stay at is http://www.bluewaterkey.com
If you get thru Ft Lauderdale drop us a line, we'd love to meet up for a drink
Thanks, David. We'll be in West Palm Beach at the Vacation Inn RV Resort, Saturday and Sunday evenings. I'd like to be able to meet up for a drink while we're there.
Enjoy the Keys! I used to live in FtL in the '90s and always enjoyed visiting the keys. I once stayed at an RV Park "downtown" key west - it really was nothing more than a parking lot with hookups! But walking distance to everything. Not sure its name or if its still there. But I do remember it was a tight fit for my class C at the time, so a class A would probably be out of the question!
We are now at Aztec RV Resort in Margate, very nice, clean but a bit boring; wandering if our next stop should be the Keys or heading West to Ft. Myers. How is or was yr stay at Boyd's
Hi, Boyd's is OK if you have a site on the ocean, which we do, so the views have been wonderful. If not, you might want to consider Blue Water Key instead. Very nice but a bit farther from Key West. Have fun! Edi
