Staying at the Hampton in Daytona Beach Shores for 3 nights and checking out on Sat. May stop in Ocala on the way home Saturday...they are having a sidecar rally there that weekend.

Gonna miss it again, I'm afraid. Too many other events filling up my schedule.

ABATE commissions an entire campground very near there, or so I been told and also been told that it's a nice place to hang around they have their own vendors and events that go on.

No I am heading out after work, Straight to jacksonville for the IBA dinner. Heading to daytona on Sat morning for the races.

After the raes I am thinking of heading to Miami to the beach. Gotta be back home on sunday night sometime so it will be a short trip this year.

Didn't realize there were two threads on this:

Just plotted our route. Trying to stay off Interstates as much as possible this time. Headed out Tuesday thru Perry to Gainesville - about 370 miles and stopping for the night....then on Wed on into the Volusia County Fairgrounds swap meet. That day is the sidecar show. Then later probably over to Cabbage Patch and maybe Pub 44 and then up to Daytona Beach Shores. 3 nights and then heading back on Saturday. return trip is completely up in the air right now. Should get back home sometime Sunday. Looking like awesome weather the entire time.

Bitter sweet news.

Found out yesterday that my Youngest daughter will be inducted into the national honor society friday. She has always had straight A's and is a model student according to her teachers. (4th grade now) Pretty cool news for me. Hope she keeps it up. Just had to share.

Unfortunatley i cannot make my IBA dinner so thats not going to happen. Almost thinking if cancelling this year altogether. Will have to ride out friday night to jacksonville, then to the races saturday morning, down the miami after the race, than pound more super slab back home on Sunday. Just seems too rushed this year.

Still no regreats, I have to be a dad to my daughters before i cna go running around. Bitter sweet.
