Not gonna lie, that looks like fun.
This is one of the places I recommended to you. When we started going there, it was a tiny dock bar, maybe 15 seats. Man have they built it up over the years.

Going to the Keys mid July. Any recommendations on what to see or where to eat?
Any one of the Keys in particular?

I'm a little over a month away from driving to Colorado, Wyoming and south Dakota for vacation. I think we are switching to camping outside rather than hotels for the way out and back. Most of our trip will be staying with a family and camping. It certainly seems likely to happen, but I'll be damned if we aren't being cautious about the whole thing. I feel like driving and camping puts us in a better spot with everything happening, but I still don't know about this. Any thoughts on camping vs hotel. Any suggestions? Still feels like a wait and see thing with a month left to go
Where in Wyoming will you be?
Devil's tower. Most of the trip will be Colorado and SD.

    We’ll be doing the drive from Miami, but staying in Key West.

    a coworker just got back from a road trip to California. he was helping a buddy move his son from LA to Dallas. in nowhere SoCal the buddy needed a restroom and pulling over to go in the bushes was not an option for what he needed. they tried the gas stations but none of them had open public restrooms. end of story is, the guy had to throw his pants away. :scared:
    I took Mrs Mac to the hospital the other day for an outpatient procedure and had to sit in the parking lot, wasn't allowed in.

    I'm not sure how those who work mobile (utilities, delivery guys, etc) are managing in this environment with hardly any fast food joints with bathrooms open :lol:

    Inside, but doesn’t include restaurants and bars, so feel I won’t be wearing one that much.

    considering that SW doesn't reserve seats I'd just say they're selling LESS seats. the seats are still there and if you're traveling with someone you can sit there but there won't be 3 people per row until at least October.

    so if mrs litt and mr litt were traveling with LITTle we could put her in the middle seat without buying a ticket (will be 9 mo at time of travel)

    I would think so but if I were you I'd call SW or DM them on Twitter and ask.

    We had friends that trailed their boat all the way down to the Keys for their week vacation. I-95 is a mess for the entire trip, and that's without a damn boat on a trailer. Sounds awful.

    He's going to rent a boat down there next time. :lol:

    My favorite bar was Hog's Breath Saloon. If it's still there nice covered open air bar with good entertainment and food. Located at the very beginning of Duval Street.

    My folks really want us to drive down and visit them in Florida. My fiancé is getting stir crazy so she's on board. I'm not sure how I feel about it, given the current state of Florida. Thoughts?

    Any extra precautions or just the normal pandemic stuff you've been doing?
