Fort Lauderdale or Bust! / by admin

Our last trip to a boat show was interesting to say the least.  If you want the full scoop, give us a call (586-275-7861).  We bought a "new" Class A motorhome yesterday and are gearing up to head out this afternoon to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS).

The only time I have been more excited about a roadtrip is while I was in undergrad I drove out to Colorado from Ohio.  My friend Matt Wish and I got summer jobs at the YMCA of the Rookies and planned to get a summer full of hiking and running at altitude before the fall cross country season.  I bought a truck for $300, tossed some shoes in the back, and away we went.  The summer which followed delivered on all my expectations, and I suspect the 50th annual FLIBS will do the same.

I hope to post a bit more while down there, but the best bet to stay up to date on what we are doing and seeing is to follow us on twitter, @FirstMateYC.  To find other tweets about the show search for #flibs.
