Never long enough I say!

So I had to take some vacation time before I stopped gaining time off so I figured bike week was a good a time as any.

Last weekend I made 2 trips to Daytona, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. I rode out Saturday by myself and took a trip around the loop and saw lots of bikes, LOTS of cars and nothing really exciting.
Sunday I rode out again with my brother and a friend of his, roamed around some of the booths and bike vendors. Got a t-shirt, so i'm an official attendee now.
My thoughts on bike week:
Too crowded to get much done, and for the safety of bikers everywhere Daytona should be blocked off for 4 wheeled traffic unless you live there.

Overall, i wasn't impressed. Granted i'm not the go to bars and party til I puke type but there didn't seem to be a lot going on there unless you like riding from Daytona to Ormond Beach and back or are actually going to watch the races.

Most of the week was boring and uneventful, just taking time to clear up some personal crap until Friday when a friend and I decided we'd go to the Keys.
We got a nice room on Islamarada about halfway thru the keys and decided to go see what was happening on Key West..again not a lot. Lots of bars, lots of drunks, some drag queens trying to wrangle people into a show and not a public bathroom to be found! "customers only!" they said.
Had dinner (one of the few high points) which consisted of a 'big ass burger' really thats what it said on the menu! Did some touristing and headed back to the hotel to collapse.

After that it was off to other places i'd never been..well after a sidetrack or 2. We thought the strawberry festival might be interesting so we headed across alligator alley (another fun spot lol) and up to Plant City.
For those who have never been, the festival is just a big fair kind of event, if they didnt say anything about it you wouldn't know it had anything at all to do with strawberries. It seemed like any state fair kind of thing to me.
But OH the people! They apparently drag everyone out of the ghetto's and trailers for this happening. It's a special people watching event the likes that you've never seen...unless you've been to a real backwoods county fair or something lol.

So that's vacation in a nutshell..exciting in't it?
