Here is an idea that came my way.

I'll keep all of the updated news in this post to keep it easier to find.

Idea 1...

This idea is for a week long trip leaving Miami in the afternoon which would allow enough time in the morning for people to arrive. Then drive to the keys and split the keys into three parts of two days/nights each...upper, middle, and lower keys. The lower keys could be covered between the overnight in the middle keys (around Marathon maybe) and the two nights in Key West. The seventh day would be to drive back which can take the whole day if we want to retake some shots on the way back, otherwise it's about a 4 1/2 hour drive back to Miami.


Let the ideas flow!

DATES!!!!

October 2-9.


First leg~
Meet at Everglades National Park - The Anhinga Trail

Those interested in going so far.

I'm in! Wouldn't miss it for anything! We still thinking about early fall?

For those not in the know, the idea we discussed in St. Augustine is to meet up in Miami and spend a couple of days driving down to Key West while making photo stops along the way. :)
04/12/2007 05:46:18 PM · #3
Well, if we're still talking about late September, I'll try to clear my calendar. Is this going to be a weekend thing, or perhaps a week long road trip?

Oh! Oh! Oh! You MUST have been thinking of me! Count me in. I don't care WHEN it is (unless it's in the next 4 weeks. I'd be seriously depressed. lol).

I can do a week long GTG. What a great idea!

As long as I can have shotgun in the convertible. :)
04/12/2007 05:58:50 PM · #6
I hope I would be able to make this one. I grew up in Key west and I havn't been down there in 5 years. I would hate to go without the family though. And I bet you guys would hate me lugging the kids around.

I will see if I can talk my hubby into letting me go alone. :)

If it's a GTG in autumn fall (learning to change my vocab), then there's a reasonable chance that myself and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' chiqui will be in the area - depending on how quickly the visa gets approved - and I know I'd love to meet the local DPCers down there! :D I'll keep an eye on this thread...
04/12/2007 06:05:34 PM · #8
As I should be relocated and settled in Florida by that time, you better believe I'M IN!
04/12/2007 06:07:07 PM · #9
Since you started the thread, Wayne, you get to ammend the OP to include attendees & details as we get them hammered out. :D

*passes her thread admin had* :)

You're throwing responsibility on me? Silly woman.

I'll do my best.

Well, according to the official rules of shotgun calling, I think that you normally have to be in sight of the car to call shotgun.

Edit: I looked up the rules. Line of sight only applies after extended outdoors activities. Still, there are rules and I think that we all need to brush up on them. :)

I just want to go now. Key West is probably my favorite corner of the Carribean and the Keys Highway my favorite way to get there (little planes freak me out)! Have only been once on camera safari and that was back in the 35mm days.

I was there this evening for some sunset shots. It's basically just down the "street" from me.

edit to add some of the shots from this evening...

Count me in! I'm on the way. This was today : )
I will likely be able to hang out for a long weekend, but a week may be longer than I can be there.

Bonk : )
Who is in for the GTG so far, and are there any plans yet?
04/17/2007 02:40:09 AM · #20
I would be up for it, but it would need to be toward the early part of October. No one at work is allowed to take vacation in September due to a big move. Crap, I know, but I'd love to get down there to meet you guys. Hopefully we can put this together.
04/21/2007 09:57:02 PM · #21
The ideas are coming in for the GTG.

I'll keep the current news of the GTG in the first post of this thread.
