ride offered

I'm leaving Baltimore for Key Largo as soon as I find someone to help me drive and/or just ride shotgun. I am a 68 year old man with eight stents in my heart. I feel good most of the time and haven't been in the hospital for over two years. Still... I know the drive will make me nervous and I really need someone to go with me just in case I get a bout of chest pain while on I-95 southbound. This is a bucket-list thing with me. I plan on doing a lot of fishing when I get there and I do not plan on coming back. I will be driving my 35' 1989 low-mileage Winnebago motorhome with two chihuahuas aboard. We could take turns driving/napping. Here's the thing... I will be trailering, (towbar) a full size Dodge conversion van behind my motorhome with all four tires on the road, (No tongue weight). Strapped to the top my van will be a small fishing boat on a trailer... Overall length will be pushing 55'. There exists the possibility that instead of doing it this way, you could drive the van with small boat on a trailer or my motorhome, or we could switch off. I will probably need to take many short nap breaks if we do it this way. We will both need to stay in close touch via cell phone and... you will need to pull over and wait every time I pull over. It will be faster and cheaper for me if we pull it all together!

Honestly... with my poor health and my motorhome sitting for a few years, making this trip scares me a little and I don't want to attempt it alone. I already have a place to park in Key Largo and there is a second bed in my motorhome. There exists a possibility that you could be a roomate in my motorhome short-term or extended term splitting expenses. I am a straight male. I will be smoking and drinking a little beer in my motorhome and there are two chihuahuas... Hey... It's The Keys!... (BTW, There will be NO drinking while driving)

Email me with details about you and be sure to include your phone number. If I think you and I could make this work I will be giving you a call. I plan on leaving March 3rd and if I am delayed it should only be days or maybe a week.

You must have a valid driver's license and a few references I could call... Email Me if interested.
