    A little hammocking in the Florida Keys.

    Ok very little hammocking. I was camped in my van, it was very uncomfortable. I would have slept like a baby in my hammock but that was not to be in Long Key State Park...either way here are some pics.



    Just got back from a trip to the Keys, no motorcycles were involved but the weather was warm and I did miss my motorcycle.

    Awesome trip report. Gotta love all the chances to see wildlife in Florida! So few ever really take the time to see much more than the theme parks.

    FHV Planning is ongoing. Look for a Official Planning Thread sometime in August!

    The great stories shared by many are ok when compared to all the pics you have there. Truly a great story when good quality pics are shared. Thanks for bringing us along.
    Good times.
    PS, I hate moccasins(cottonmouths)
