Heading Out For New Orleans

Time has come to leave Key West, but we'll be back one day for sure. We start our journey towards New Orleans taking three days getting into the "Big-Easy."  Our first leg takes us to the town of Naples on Florida's west coast riding through the Everglades National Park and the Big Cypress National Preserve.  It's a ride of approximately 238 miles.  We have the joy of riding north across the ocean highway once more  and a stop for lunch in Key Largo and refuel.  We head west to a very small town called Ochopee where we hope to catch a ride on an Air-boat, skimming across the Everglades at unnatural speeds will be a thrill! We should make it into Naples by late afternoon just in time for a long cool G&T.


  1. Beware of the most dangerous animal of the Everglades: the mosquito. They come in swarms and eat you alive.

  2. Thanks SonjaM for the tip. We must stop at a drugstore and get some repellent.

  3. Smoking your cigars will help too, but definitely get some spray
