Hi well the wife and i got fed up with the snow and the ice so a week ago I rented a house and then jumped in the car and drove down to Big Pine Key. Just lovely, warm sunny and each day I see a Silver R170 driving up and down the road through Big Pine wonder if it's someone on the site that owns it.

Don't worry never moved the my SLK out of storage we drove the Mazda down. Mind I did take a picture of my car from the back then turned it into a car symbol loaded it onto my TOMTOM so in a way I did bring it with me.

Stay Warm my friends up North..:rb

Isn't it great to escape from our winter up north? We drove down from Connecticut to our new getaway in Fort Myers two weeks ago. Also left the SLK at home. The roads were a mess and the pot holes in NY and NJ were terrible. Had a white R172 350 behind me most of the way from Tampa south on I75..pure torture. If I had the UFO with me I might never go back. It will be making the trip to its new home next fall.

I agree the roads in most cold area are a mess this year. Day after we left Canada it got down to -18C with a windshield factor of -35C and that for the Buffalo/Fort Erie area is bloody cold.

JJ have a nice dock at the back of the house in the Canal so have been swimming a couple of times. The water is quite cool mind you but not that cool.

Not sure what you mean about the strawberries but I'm sure there's something in it I'm missing..

Stay Warm :Beer::tu:

Huge Strawberry farms in Central Florida - Tampa / Lakeland Strawberry Festival is going on now. So JJ must have thought you were in that area…
