FYI, the weather is in the 'perfect / delightful' range, people are very friendly, golf courses are immaculate, my game is the usual average to bad. No bugle so far.

It seems quite a common thing is the old 'strangle your brother'. I know a few people who have tried it at one point or another.

If you're going soon, the heat and humidity won't be quite so oppressive. But if you're going in June, July, August or September, then it's pretty bad

Off this week.

Great to see the best side in the league absolutely bossing it at the Britannia.

Should've been 6-0.

Are you not scared of being 'very Tottenham' and fucking it all up at the last minute?

Amps, I generally like your style... but those last nikes you've posted are horrendous. Those soles...

you probably have a bot fly or some other third world creature in your eye rhouses, they're boss.

No more built up than a pair of air max or the like, just light on the detail.

The drive out to Key West is pretty nice too - depending on your itinerary - plenty of tropical, beach style watering holes and a more sophisticated crowd -  and yes, wherever you go it will be humid,  but a seabreeze will always be prevalent near the coast.

Was thinking that, but it's about a ten hour round trip. Fucked if i'm spending that long in a car. We'll see how good the aircon is in villa before we make any plans.

Cheers for that Ghosty, most informative.

I have to do the hours drive from Orlando to Cape Canaveral... I'll keep the doors locked.

Close,  Jacksonville is on the Atlantic coast so does not qualify but in terms of  redneck aesthetic, it's pretty close.   The real redneck Riviera is Pensacola, Destin, Fort Walton Beach areas  which are on the Gulf of Mexico side but up on the southern shore of the panhandle -  hence the name Riviera because it faces south.

i'm sure it's terrible up close, but it looks nice from a distance:

That looks like Pensacola Beach.   If there's one thing that can be said about that area, and has the most blinding white sand and beautiful turquoise water of any beach in Florida.

Yup, that's Pensacola.

Are we talking full on gap toothed, yeehaw, dragster racing, gun totting, lynch mob racists in Pensacola? Or a more polite, Daily Mail reading, Matt Black style racist?

Is there a Lineker's bar in Orlando? Belly Buster? Only Fools? Copy of the Sun?

Any album/mix recommendations from anyone at the mo? Need some holiday tunes too.

Hate to disappoint gents, but it's very much a family holiday, so bugle and clubs are sort of limits sad But thanks for all staying bang on message as ever smile

If you're trying to put a new slant on 'doing a Benson', this isn't the direction I'd take. But best of luck to you.

I'm very much Orlando based, so hopefully avoiding the worst of it Slabs.

Was considering a bit of this:

Loads of golf, Disney and NASA, what else should I be checking out? Got a motor so can get about.
