    Escape The Snow

    I got together with my brother and Brother in-law and escaped to Fernandina Beach, Florida. The snow had finished up the night before and we're all sick of winter.

    Me (Pat): 2002 BMW R1150RT
    Brother (Greg): 2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500
    Brother In-law (Wayne): 2008 Victory Vision

    Departure: Frederick ,Md., 1/29/09, 11:30 a.m., 33 degrees, snow still covering the ground.

    Arrival: Fernandina Beach, Fl., 1/30/09, 4:30 p.m., 50 degrees.

    Here's a few things I brought along.

    We started the journey once the temperature hit 33 deg. Ran into a little ice on route 15 south near Point Of Rocks, Md Very scary.

    Met up with Wayne (Victory Vision) in Leesburg, Va.

    Basically followed Rt. 15 south for most of the day and headed for Durham, NC. Spent the night in Southern Pines, NC at a Motel 6. Grabbed a meal and a few too many beers at the Applebee's across the street.

    Hit the road at 8:00 a.m. on Friday the 30th and got to Florida late that afternoon. We were spending Saturday with another brother (Mike) on his cool sailboat.

    We took a walking tour of Fort Clinch. It is located on a point that defends the St.Mary's River entrance from the Atlantic ocean. Civil War era fort.

    And back to town. This is my feeble attempt at a Captain Morgan pose.
