RE: Bahia Honda Bridge is Closed

We also was there last May. It did not appear to be unsafe to me. What happened to it? If you were to go under it in a boat last may and took a look at all the rusted pieces that are hanging off it and falling into the water almost on a daily basis, you would realize that it was just as dangerous. There have been signs for a long time warning the boaters how dangerous it is. Next time you go over the seven mile bridge take a look over at the old RR bridge, and you'll see the same thing. Jack L

RE: Is a freshwater tank necessary if not traveling?

If you will be winterizing in the winter, the pump is necessary for pumping the pink stuff, but if you will never be using the on board water tank, there is absolutely no need to keep the tank. Jack L

RE: Bahia Honda Bridge is Closed

I wonder if this will have an effect on the reservations for Bahia Honda. I don't think they will go empty, but I wonder how much easier it may be able to get reservations.....never been there before. Was able to score a couple nights in July. It won't be any easier ! Trust me on that. Jack L

RE: Bahia Honda Bridge is Closed

Not quite the same, but; On a sunny day when the wind is calm walk under the Rt 1 bridge and over to where the cabins are. Then walk a another fifty or sixty feet to the broken concrete wall and look over right in close to the wall. You'll see lots of small tropical fish including several species of Parrot fish, Sargent majors and lots of Mangroves Snappers. They are there every day We saw an Angel fish there too. Jack L

RE: Holding Tanks Size, what to look for?

For what it is worth: We snow bird and are two weeks at a time at one state park We have a 40 gallon black and a 40 gallon gray. The 40 gallon black will be good for two weeks with just my wife using it and me using the parks facility. For one week it is good for both of us. On the gray we both use the parks shower facility and then the last few days use our own shower, and also dump the dish washing into it and it will fill up in just a few days. Lots of time I use the blue boy for carrying the gray so we can take showers in our own bath room. Jack L I would hate to just have a 26 gallon black and gray

RE: Snowbirding and beach or pier fishing.

The Florida Keys offer the best salt water fishing and the warmest winter climate on the east coast. Just about all the bridges between each key have walkways separate from the road way just for fishing with free parking on each end of the bridge. You should make your reservations now and it won't be cheap Jack L

RE: Topper for Truck

I have always had a top on the back of every pick up that I have ever owned and wouldn't be without one. We just bought a new 2014 Dodge last year and the very first thing I did was get a fiberglass one. They will match your truck colors exactly. I also got the tracks built into the roof that accept Yakima racks. In it, I carry two mountain bikes, all of our back packing gear, all of our snorkeling gear and all our paddling gear for two kayaks and a canoe along with a bunch of other stuff. It all stays nice and dry and locked up. jack L

RE: Crowds in the Keys ?

I don't think its misleading. There is plenty of white sand, mostly under the blue water. Misleading again! We are kayakers and have been to every off shore Key there is down her. There is a smattering of sand here and there, but mostly the bottom is hard dead coral (marl) or sea grass and mud My biggest disappointment 40 years ago was the "beach" at John Pennekamp SP Now I like to tall it like it is just so newbies won't be disappointed. With all that said, the colors of the water are absolutely beautiful and we know where there are some nice sandy beaches out at the end of the Snipe Keys and the Mud Keys and a few others. You just need a kayak and a proper tide to get there and back in a day. Jack L Jack L That's impressive that you have been to 1700 islands in your Kayak. People give their opinions on what they have seen. The "Keys" is not one small area. Over 100 miles by road and if you want to get technical, extend from the area of Ft. Jefferson to Elliot and Soldier Key and you could probably include Key Biscayne off Miami(where I was born). So it is an area of close to 200 miles. Where do you get off saying that I was misleading. The poster was just saying that there was sand and I agree. I have dove in a lot of the entire area and yes there is sea grass and mud (and patch reefs), but there is sand under water as well. Maybe you should get out of the kayaks and get under water to look. BTW who goes to Pennekamp to see the beach. I'll stand by what I wrote. There are several posts here including yours that are misleading people that have never been here. I won't reply any more, but it would be nice if someone who has never been here before would come back and tell us about all the white sand beaches they have found ! I love the keys. They are as good as it gets for boating, fishing, and sunshine, but their beaches can in no way compare with the long sandy beaches of the east coast and Gulf coast and are few and far between Jack L

RE: Crowds in the Keys ?

I don't think it is misleading at all. I simply stated that if the OP is only looking for warm weather, anyplace warm will do. In addition to warmth, the Keys have two things that you won't find anywhere else assessable by RV in the winter. Those are white sand and blue water. What's misleading about that? I don't think I said miles and miles of white sandy beaches. Anyway, a person can only enjoy one beach at a time, so what difference does it make if there are only a few. We love Sandspur. You can wade out to what seems like a mile in soft white sand and still see the bottom. That right there is worth the cost of the trip in our book. Sombrero Beach on Marathon is one pretty nice white sandy beach too. We don't go to Pennycamp,but we do go next door to the Navy Annex. That beach has a lot of ground up coral, so water shoes are a must. We go there for the kids to snorkel without the need for a boat trip to get there. I imagine once our 7 year old gets bigger, we won't go there anymore. So OP, rest assured that there is white sand in the Keys, and it does look beautiful next to that aqua-marine blue water. If you are looking for white sandy beaches, they are there too, but you have to look for them. Evidently you have never been to the large open beaches on the east and west coasts of south Florida. jack L

RE: Is it the People or the the Places?

Places for us Which in turn includes the people we have met at those places. We are hard core kayakers/canoers and seek out good places to paddle. Over many years in returning to those places we have made good friends with lots of others who enjoy paddling too. jack L

RE: Crowds in the Keys ?

If its warm weather you are looking for, you can most likely get that in Arizona. If its blue water and white sand, well, that's why the Keys are crowded in winter. That and the party atmosphere. Sandspur Beach, Bahia Honda You shouldn't be misleading people who have never been to the Keys. It can be a big disappointment for those that have been to large open beaches on the east coast or the Gulf Coast. Warm weather yes, but You will only find a few places on the entire keys that have a beach like Sandspur at Bahia Honda. Most are either shallow with ground up coral or muddy We winter here every year, and I am typing this from Bahia Honda SP where we are right now. Jack L

RE: Come on over for campfire coffee

I must have my one cup every morning ! I grind it fresh like talcum powder from Eight O'clock Columbian beans just before using it and then brew it in a $15 Mr Coffee. Come taste it, you'll never go back to yours ! Jack L

RE: Crowds in the Keys ?

From the sounds of it, I think I'll go to QuartzSite. Hard for me to believe that there are RV'ers out ther who don't know about Q ! Thanks for the replies! OK, I'll bite. I have been RV'n for fifteen years and have seen the name, but keep wondering where it is. Is it a City, County, and in what state? Also what is the big attraction. We winter in the Keys every year and never plan on not wintering here, but it would be interesting to know about it. Jack L
