    OK, just secured our reservations for Key West, arriving Monday, June 11 until Friday, June 15. We may stay longer, depending on weather and how we feel.

    I've made this a thread so RJ guys see it with whom we might meet up. I'll also send direct e-mails to the guys we usually visit while there. And the conservaplants here can bitch all they like about my discussing my travel plans online. It's how I've met more RJers in person than I think any of them ever have. icon_biggrin.gif

    Direct e-mail me, and I'll give you our KW address. Drinks & dinner on us, as always. And we'll have our usual duplex suite, with a full kitchen and room for 2 more upstairs. If you wanna join us it's just $25 for each additional (we would never consider splitting the entire cost), but you gotta act fast, just 4 days away. All gay, clothing optional and right on Duval Street, in the heart of Old Town.

    Thanks, guy! I guess we won't get to see you again, this time in KW? Kinda sudden, though I had been mentioning this in RJ for a few weeks as a possibility.

    I'd been teasing this hotel for over a week, phoning them every few days. and of course they know me. I didn't like what I heard, would just hang up.

    Finally they phoned me tonight, with a decent offer. Not the best I've ever gotten from them, but good enough. Key West Pride is just ending, so they were in "Event Pricing" which can be quite high.

    We're still looking for a roommate, or mates, because the suite sleeps 4. It doesn't lower our own cost a penny, but we hate to see the upstairs Queen go vacant. Maybe someone else here?

    Self-destructing? Actually I've never been bitten by a mosquito in the Keys.

    BTW, we'll likely be stopping for lunch on Islamorada, the place where you took aerial photos for us. A bit touristy, but just perfect for our travel time down from Wilton Manors. And nice to eat out on the Gulf.

    Thank you, my love. We'll be taking one of your Orlando RJers to a reception tomorrow night. It's a meet-and-greet for the Sheriff of Broward County, a friend of ours. This Orlando RJer is also in law enforcement, and might be looking for options. It's all about networking.

    I get beat up by the conservaplants here, for helping fellow RJers. I observe that they themselves help no one. If you wanna come down to Key West next week, I have the room. icon_biggrin.gif

    Sorry it depresses you. icon_sad.gif

    I would pay for your room, I've done that before. All you have to do is pay for the flight down to KW. Get there, and all costs are on me.

    Does this mean he'll be bringing the "party favors" that have been recently confiscated? icon_twisted.gificon_biggrin.gif

    I would say fuck you, but I'm getting laid by a hottie this weekend, and that's the only reason I'd wanna go to Pride anyway so I really don't care this time. icon_biggrin.gificon_cool.gif

    I don't know what that means. icon_question.gif

    But here is the Broward County Sheriff and my partner, at an event for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Chair of the DNC. My husband is to the right, whom I know you'll recognize.

    Have a great time down there and I will see you, your wonderful husband and hopefully lots more of the guys here sometime in 2013.

    An RJ get-together then would be a great idea!

    Okay, maybe it's just me, but it sure looks like someone is trying to buy friends. icon_rolleyes.gif Between the Hurricane Committee, various Happy Hours around town, cruising the local Publix, Shuttling newcomers to Ft. Lauderdale around town, soliciting for roommates in Key West (we know, we know, YOU'LL PAY!) how does he ever find the time to look after poor Carmine? icon_eek.gif

    Thank you, but why 2013? We'll be in Key West again in November, 2012, for the SMART Ride for HIV/AIDS, over 600 people. And I imagine I'll be there again before that.

    I know the main gay guest houses in Key West, for a group I could get us very nice rates. What do you have in mind, and when? E-mail me, let's talk.

    Too bad, Art. Looks like our time in Key West won't overlap after all. icon_sad.gif

    Have fun while you're down there!

    Such a bargain. I cannot even fathom a more fabulous vacation than spending it sharing a hotel bungalow with Art_Deco and his "A+ List". I'm sure he's a magnet for every hottie in the Keys...we'll have carte blanche everywhere we go...it will be like walking on a proverbial "Red Carpet" non-stop. I'm sure it would be akin to what Jackie O felt like traveling with Onassis. Don't miss this opportunity, they come along once a lifetime.
