  • Florida Keys Trip

    Posted on March 4th, 2013 cwmoore No comments

    We just returned from the Keys via Marco Island and Miami.  We stayed in Naples for three days to look at John Meyers Youngsun 43 Pilothouse sailboat.  John was a gracious host and we had a good time talking with him.  From there we went to Miami for three days to see Roger Sanders (and wife plus all the family).  Rogers wife is having a baby very soon so he is in for a lifestyle change.  While we stayed in Miami at the  Larry and Penny Thompson RV Park.  What a great RV Park; however, you need a vehicle to travel around Miami and we only brought the truck with the camper.  Our bikes helped in getting around locally but still no shopping for SAM.

    From Miami we drove down to the Keys to visit with Steve Bennett.  Steve is now retired and living in his small but very nice ocean front house.  We had a good visit with Steve and got to see a locals view of Marathon Key.  On Saturday we went to a nautical flea market plus sever others in the city of Marathon.  We returned to St. Petersburg on Sunday afternoon 3/3/2013 in beautiful but cold sunshine and very high winds.

    Upon arrival after a 6+ hour return trip we found the Magic Jack computer was left on but the internet was not working.  After a trouble shoot session and a reboot of the computer nothing worked.  More troubleshooting only to find the router wired ports were all inop.  The tablet, note book, android phone and Nook all connected ok wirelessly so we went to bed.  In the morning the computer would not boot beyound the windows wallpaper screen so did a safe mode boot and fell back to a restore point a few days earlier.  After a few reboots Windows XP worked again so we installed the wireless usb access point to make a wireless connection.  By 1030 we were all good to go.  Yea.  Moore later.
