    In the south- having a great time!

    I leave the NE for vacation. First day in VA, I get invited to a steel match. Great people- some awesome shooters- huge turn-out! I had a great time and even though it was my first steel match since we don't have things like that where I come from, I didn't finish last so I'm happy.

    Iit was nice to be around Americans for a change. Southerners rock!

    Well, now we're in FL. Seems kinda Northernish around here.

    Here's a few things I learned so far...

    Smart Cars (seen in PA) can go 80 mph. Who knew.

    All Piruses don't come with factory-installed Obama stickers and the ones that don't can actualy go 80 in the left lane.

    Some male tourists on FL beaches do indeed walk around in Speedos wearing gold chains and saying' "How you doing" to babes in bikinis.

    And there are babes in bikinis aplenty on the beach. Of course some of them are 70 yos that should probably not be wearing them. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

    NY, MA, NJ drivers don't change their driving habits. Theyy're buttheads outside of their states also. Heck, even the CT drivers are pretty much the same although some of us try to be polite.

    Agreed. Just don't ask southerners what they think of yankees!

    And no, once you get south of about Orlando your no longer in the south, just the north v2.0.

    New lesson-

    There's one bar here that has pool tables. So we hit it and shoot a game or two. Third trip down here and we've always shot a few games pretty much alone. Tonight a guy throws quarters on the table which was odd as there was an empty one right there. I won and figured why not...

    This guy racks. He killed me. I didn't even have a real chance to shoot. I was impressed and kinda pissed. I'm a decent pool player or at least I was 16 years ago.

    Big show-off!

    That hasn't happened at the bar where the steel tip dart board is. There (so far) we just go and throw darts for a few games and relax. Maybe we'll have to rethink the pool playing as this is vacation and I'm not enjoying being raped.

    For the love of God CT don't try and street race any beat up looking primer gray cars for money while you are down here. Just some FYI.

    No worries there- my street racing days are over- I drive a Hyundai.

    But I bet if I took the Mini Cooper out I could have some fun. It is just sitting there in the garage and I could use it.

    Anyway, we thinking of heading up to Tampa for a day. Anyone want to chime in on areas up there that I should be concerned with- crime wise?

    Also thinking of doing a day or two in Orlando. Crimewise- any areas to avoid?
