    Key Largo - John Pennekamp - FL Keys

    OK South FL riders - How about meeting this coming Sat Sept 22
    at John Pennekamp docks at 10:00am?

    We can make the run out to Molassas Reef and Christ of the Abyss
    reef which is always fun and interesting.

    We can also go to Holiday Isle sandbar which is somewhat boring, but
    like saying you went to NYC and didn't go to the Statue of Liberty.

    There are several places to hang out, run fast, and eat.

    I for one will be doing the Fish House Rest in Key Largo (no dock, have
    to go by car) for some of their fresh fish finished off with sherry (house
    speciality) later in the day.

    As an alternative meeting place we could do the bayside private bar/dock
    on the right just before the John Pennekamp state park entrance. They do
    have a good little harbor, docks and charge $10/boat to launch.

    Any other suggestions, chime in!

    I'm in for Saturday. The place on the right I think you are referring to is the Caribbean Club. Another possible launch site is Harry Harris Park, MM 93, Oceanside. It's free during the week but costs, I think, $5 for out of county residents for the beach on the weekends. Not sure what it costs for the boat ramp on the weekends. The trailer parking is limited to 20 trailers and on busy Holiday weekends it's filled by 9am. It's the ramp you can see with the high baseball field lights near Tavernier Key. I live 1/4 mile from the Park and I'll take a ride by later to see if I can get any prices off the sign.
    Hope the weather holds up, I have not ridden in too long of a time.

    Here's the deal on Harry Harris Park, if anyone was interested.
    non county residents charged Sat, Sun and Federal Holidays.
    $5 per person over 16
    $10 for any trailer that's capable of carrying any type of water conveyance (or something wierd like that).

    Looks like they charge per person PLUS the trailer. It's free for all during the week though.

    Pennekamp it is

    Let's lock down Pennekamp as departure at approximately 10:00am.

    We can call each other for those that are remote and maybe meet
    offshore or at Pennekamp channel. I have a handheld VHF clipped
    to my vest monitoring Channel 16 for those that have one.

    You all know what the back end of a Kawasaki Ultra 250X looks like
    right? Cause that's all most of you will see !!!

    Going to be fun!

    If I get up early enough I'll cruise IN to Pennekamp. If not which way are you guys planning on heading out of Pennekamp, north or south and I'll be waiting at the ocean.

    All fueled up and ready to go. Sea does not look too bad.
    Saturday
    East to southeast winds 10 to 15 knots. Seas beyond the reef 2 to 4 feet. Seas inside the reef 1 to 2 feet. Nearshore waters a light to moderate chop. Scattered showers and thunderstorms.

    What's the final count of riders? I'll meet you guys at the dock.
