Me too. March is just a few short weeks away. Then I'm off and heading south for Daytona Beach.
I'll be posting my own answer here in a few days or so to this query. Y'all will be goin..."Man I wish I was Marilyn, this year!" Cuz I'm planning on some major riding this year!
Mike, it's been many years since I've camped in Daytona (I lived only 75 miles to the south for over 25 years.) Last time I did, I camped at the in field of the Speedway. I don't know if they still allow that...but that was fun...
Also, I've camped at the Cabbage Patch, way back in 1978, things have changed since I camped there. I've had friends tell me that the ABATE campgrounds are a good alternative:
another good place is Nova Campgrounds.... I've stayed there before (back in 2002) http://www.novacamp.com/rates.html
Seems no one really wants to talk about any "plans"...so I'll start:
1. March is Bike Week in Daytona. The gals who are featured in the book: "Biker Chicz of North America" by Edward Winterhalder and Wil de Clercq have all been invited to sign books for the public at the booth of Klock Werks (Laura Klock is one of the gals in the book.) So I've decided to make a good road trip of it. I'm taking side roads south from Johnson City, TN. and going through towns and places I've never rode through before. I'm searching for great little towns with historic or not so historic but definitely cool places/people/events of interest. I've decided to head south into Augusta, GA, then make my way south into Florida and follow "The Yellow Brick Road"....until I hit Daytona. I'll be staying with friends in Port ST. John Florida while I'm there, and I hope to meet up with as many of you as possible at Klock Werks!
2. I'm Taking a trip out west to OK. Once again the entire ride will be on secondary roads. This time there will be a theme to the ride.... "Trail of Tears". I'll be riding the northern route of the trail of tears, through small time towns as across big time rivers to visit the places and the sites the Native Americans walked through during the forced relocation march from Florida to OK. I'm hoping to find bits of history all along the trail...but I'm not sure exactly what I will find. This will be a 3 week adventure.
3. Later in the year, I will be traveling along the Natchez Trail from Nashville to Natchez MS. Camping and visiting historic places, photographing and detailing the ride.
All of these proposed rides are to be featured in Iron Works Magazine during the up coming year, so I hope y'all will come along for the ride!
