Had a great get together in Florida

Recommended Posts

Well I lined up a get together with the Florida gang here while my wife and I were on Vacation the last week and a half in Florida.

 

John and his wonderful wife Glenna Fak hosted the get together and had some great food for us all to fill up on. Thank you both and to everyone else who supplied food like the deer sausage Yabbadoo brought.

 

Met with Yabbadoo, 98whitelightnin, Johnfak and his wife and one of there friends Bruce "not sure if he is a member here or not'. Looked over every ones rides and took a walk on the beach which is only about a block from Johns home.

 

Awesome day and weather and people.

 

BTW Yabbadoo, what kind of nuts were those again that came from Virginia? I need to figure out how to crack them lol, I have a nut cracker and It takes several tries to get them to crack and then they just explode. Maybe need to roast them first or something.

 

Anyone want to see a group pic? John and Ryan need to ok it though s they are a bit "tied up" lol. If they don't mind I will post up a group pic of the get together.

We all forgot to take pics of all the Cummins lined up though.

Yes, It was an awesome afternoon with some great food and amazing people!! Thank you John and Glenna for hosting such a great get together and it was awesome meeting everyone!! BTW, I received the Venison Sausage from one of my clients and when I told her how much we all enjoyed them, she gave me 2 more packages :thumb1:  

The nuts are Hickory nuts, and they are a complete pain to crack!!

Thanks been searching and trying things and found these good videos although the simple opening of them with a knife only works if they have a bit of a spilt in a seem of the shell already but I did get a couple to pop that way.

Trip went well too. Got there and drove west to Lido Key by Sarasota and spent 2 nights there and just spent time on the beach. From there headed down to Sanibell Island by Ft Meyers / Cape Corral spent 2 days there on the beach and bicycling the island and up to Captiva island on the bikes. Next stop was to take the Key West express down to key West for 2days, just wandered around checking out our favorite spots and some new ones and took another sunset snorkeling cruise to the reef. From there back up to Cape corral for 4 nights and a day trip up to meet the gang at St Petersburg and back down south again that night. Just took one day to R&R by the pool and another day driving around the cape Corral area up to Pine island and over to Alva and Labelle and back just to check the area out a bit more. We would like to buy a property of some sort down in Cape Corral or surrounding area in the future as we found that area is the nicest FL has to offer what we are looking for.

Weather was good until the last 2 days when the wind blew and highs in the 50's but it worked out perfect as we were just driving around the last 2 days and had no beach time planned anyhow.

John really gets around lol.  Met with him when he lived in Missouri.  His Aussie accent doesn't come across on forums haha.  

But it did in his videos!! :thumb1:

I guess that's true. Hard to remember if I recognized it in vids before meeting him. I sure didn't get a beachside tour lol. That had to have just been a blast.
