Title: Mid Flowriduh RTE, Sleepy Hollow, Floral City, 7/14/12
Post by: SteveJ. on June 25, 2012, 11:04:35 pm
I'm a bit late on posting this up, sorry. It's time to get out and enjoy our mellow summer weather.

Come and (sw)eat at:

Sleepy Hollow
10333 E. Gobbler Dr.
Floral City, FL. 34436
(352) 726-3242

http://www.wallowatthehollow.com/ (http://www.wallowatthehollow.com/)

Saturday, July 14th, 10am.

This place does about the best job I've ever seen of handling groups. Good, cheapfrugal $5 complete breakfast, on one of the twistyest roads in central Flowrida. Airboats coming and going, outdoor band, trinket vendors, eating breakkie outside under the live oaks. What's not to like?

CASH ONLY

(http://www.wallowatthehollow.com/IMG00091.jpg)


Folks wishing to stop by our place for coffee before the festivities should plan on showing up at 7:30 or so, and leaving here at about 8:15.

Addy: 6six9 Woodview Dr.
          Tavares, FL. 32778

An RSVP is appreciated, both for the breakkie and/or for Margie's coffee at our place.

Thanx folks, from your neighborhood aad.

Good deal.

With a little luck, you'll catch a sun shower on the way home and cool off.

Folks up north that I know are being reminded on a regular basis(by me >:D >:D ) that you have to go to Floriduh to escape the summer heat.
Hey, who'd a thunk it.

Have fun OTP, maybe a temperature break?

Hopefully see you this fall/winter.

I'll be blasting down I-75 from Valdosta early Saturday morning.  Probably leave Valdosta around 7:00AM if anyone from up this far north wants to join up. :great: :motonoises:

Steve,

 Will be heading to Sleepy Hollow, not your place for the meet up. Too many sleepy heads in this little band of brothers to get going and make it to you first. We should be there not long after you arrive, but don't hold up the parade leaving from your place. It's the Ducati people that slow things down!! :rotflmao:

And we'll be thinking of you in January when it's 70 here and minus?? in the passes out there, or the 34* and rain in the lower elevations.

But no doubt, much better mountain riding out there.

Jo, have fun out there. We miss ya here, truly.

Thanks for putting this on Steve.  Had a great time.  Good to see old friends and new ones. It's slowly getting where the C-14s are outnumbering the C-10s.  Love em all.  Nice ride there and back, only 390 miles round trip.  See everyone soon.  Hopefully some at the RTE next weekend to Benton Lee's.
