We are used to seeing groups of bikes riding together down the highway, but nothing beats a group of coaches, all the same make and all tag axle rigs. Driving to the Keys with the Three Amegos, made 4 45' '07 Newmar coaches. Two MADP's and two EXDP's. What a great site. Paul (Jetsmania) took a picture. Too bad none of us know how to post it, yet.
The Three Amegos perform most every night at Mallory Square, don't miss them.
Let the good times roll.

I'm not sure whether you're surprised there are FOUR Newmar coaches traveling together without issues, or whether or not you're making reference to the fact there's a certifiable mixologist traveling with them....

Ya need to be like me.... all I need for my "mixing" pleasure is a corkscrew!!

Hey Bob, We lost the Jets Man, Paul, for a while. We all pulled into a fuel station just out of Homestead. Paul didn't need fuel but Lane, CWG and myself needed some top-up. Paul, in the meantime, cooled his Jets on the north side of the station. He figured it would take a while as Lane, I guess still relating to their former name, the Stooges, uses his credit card to open the wrong fuel pump.
Anyway, we all get done and pull out going south heading into Homestead. We figured The Jetsmania would follow. About 20 minutes later Chuck decides to see how far back the Jets Man is, no answer on his cell. Another 10 minutes and CWG call again. Low and behold, the Jets Man is still back on the tarmac at the station. So........ he ran the high altitude highways and pulled in just behind us in Key West.
So, regardless of the apparent name change to the Three Amegos, there is still lots of Stooge that shows through.
As far as issues, there have been none. Unless you count the fact that one of us hooked our sewer hose to the lawn sprinklers. That was not an issue for us really, but the guys on the other side of the park that were at the receiving end perhaps may differ.

Peter

Hi! I was just waiting for the word to light the Afterburner! I think they were trying to get rid of me. That's ok, following that group is like being in a funeral lineup! After I realized they were trying to ditch me, I lit the afterburner and no problem catching them. They will have to try harder then that to dump me! Paul

Inquiring minds want to know.

How could you miss 3 45' rigs leaving the fuel stop?

Dirk.... simple answer.... he is after all a JETS fan.

The Jets are going to the Super Bowl, they'll buy tickets and be in the row adjacent to my Steelers..... HAHAHAHA

Actually Bob and Dirk, the reason Paul didn't see the three coaches leave, is product separation. Apparently the "Stealth Mode" is only available on the Essex, so Chuck and I surrounded John's MADP and we stole away into the sun soaked landscape without being seen.

Hi! As I was sittting on the Tarmac on 41N they figured they could ditch me by taking 41S behind me and sneaking through Homestead. It's going to take a little more than that to dump me! Paul

I'm not sure you could ever show me a map which would indicate Key West being NORTH of Homestead....

Perhaps you should let JILL drive?

Maybe not Bob, but there is a few truck loads of local Key West residents moving north of Homestead ever since the three Stoooooog.... oops......Amegos hit town.

Peter, put the swirl stick down and get your spell chuck out....


AmIgo : (female form: Amiga) is a Spanish and Portuguese word for friend. It has been in use in American English since 1837 (as in AdiĆ³s, amigo, meaning Goodbye, friend).

Huh? Amegos, as in The Now Famous Amegos, is A-M-E-G-O-S. I'm pretty sure, cause they are here appearing from now till Friday.
