New members Ken and Kathy have invited all members to join them for a day at what is arguably the most popular legal nude beach in the country. They and other members will be going by motorcycle, while others will drive their cars, ideally in one big convoy. Most will be leaving from Ken and Kathy's home in Bonita Springs, starting at 9 AM. The plan is to drive toward Haulover via US 41, stop at the halfway point for a bathroom break at Big Cypress National Park, and stop again for a quick burger lunch just before reaching the beach. Ken and Kathy will be spending only three or four hours at the beach before heading home via I-75 (Alligator Alley), but others can stay as long as they like.
Carpooling for long drives like this is very practical, and more fun than driving alone. That's why we created long ago a ride-sharing page on the club's web site. Sharing rides is an especially good idea when going to Haulover, where parking lots are often crowded. Click on this blue link to access the constantly updated Carpooling page to see who needs and who's offering to share a ride, then post your own request or offer there. In the car you can bring along items that might be needed by those traveling by motorcycle, such as beach blankets, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, or snacks and drinks.
You should let Ken and Kathy know on line if you will or won't go on this excursion by scrolling to the RSVP link at the top right corner of the screen, and clicking either Yes or No. (If your plans later change, just come back to this page to revise your answer.) The fine print under Haulover's address includes Ken and Kathy's address and contact information to help coordinate this group excursion. They'll keep an eye on the weather, and will announce a day before the scheduled trip if it has to be canceled. Going on this group trip halfway between Christmas and New Year's Eve is easy--it's a day at the beach.
