Strutty has booked a flight to Las Vegas, he is leaving tomorrow. The day after we went to the Everglades we headed to Key West and the weather was lovely, wouldn't believe it was hit by the tropical storm a week before. We have been lucky in avoiding the storm. Had a wonder around Key West on my own, unfortunatly Hemmingways House was shut for the day. We went for a big piss up in Key West and had a good night. Went to one bar where a guy was playing an acoustic guitar but electric guitar songs, he filled in the drums and and riffs with his mouth. Headed to a roof top bart afterwards, turned out it was a nudist bar. Lots of moustached guys and granny t*** on show. Felt likje being at a swingers party. Obviously whipped off the t-shirt to expose the body. Strutty got a wink from a 60 year old. Had a couple of drinks at another bar and then Sturtt and Eddie headed back to motel. Stupidly I stayed out and got hammered on my own. Got lost and didn't get in until early morning. Can't remember much, have decided to seriously cut back my drinking, have to learn when to stop, otherwise good ngith turns into me stumbling aorund a foriegn city on my own. Some guy at the hostel we are staying at offered us jobs working for him at beach. Proper douchebag, was on something. Myself and Eddie sneaked off an left Strutt sitting with him. We headed back to Miami to take car back. When me and Eddie arrived at garage today where we parked it we found the car clamped. Went to the office, women could barely speak English. Dumb b**** said we had blocked another car in and if you do that you have to leave your keys so they can move it. We argued so a guy came out to show us. Oops, turns out they were right. Stupid system though. Only cost 20 dollars to get it unclamped. Eddie ripped caution tape which was in fornt of car, it had been put up because a guy was painting lines. Managed to piss everyone who worked there off in the space of ten minutes. We are in the process of booking a flight to Memphis, not much more than taking Greyhounds through Florida and to Memphis, and much cheaper.
Update - Next week planned out now. We have booked a flight to Memphis tomorrow and two nights accomodation at a motel. From here we have a Greyhound booked to take us to Dallas. Two nights booked at a Dallas hostel and then on to Austin on a Greyhound again which is also booked. We also have 4 nights booked in a hostel in Austin. Starting to plan ahead now, feels good. Texas this week, brilliant.
Complete list of places visited so far - New York, Atlanta, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm beach/Palm Beach, Orlando, Tampa, Florida City(&Everglades), Key West
