|So a few friends and I are driving down to Orlando for spring break from the Upper peninsula of Michigan. I looked at OWC and prices seem super reasonable for riding. I was wondering if anyone has any input on cheep hotels or even a campsite around the area that we could set up a tent for a week or so. I was also wondering how hard it is to get on a boat for a day in the Orlando area|
|Hi Chris, When are you coming? I have the CIE crew coming March 14-18th. I'm located 1 hour from the Orlando Airport. We live on a private man-made lakes. Depending on time, your welcome to come over and ride with us.|
If you call OWC, they have a really good price on a local hotel. I want to say it was under $50 a night. As a plus it is also close to the freeway and many restaurants. As a plus the hotel has free breakfast and cocktail hour. You will need to have the people at OWC book it for you though.
|Funny that you posted this chris, because myself and a few of my friends had planned on the exact same thing. The rates for OWC are pretty high...185 for a week (yikes). Anyway, I'll have to give OWC a call about the hotel thing. I think our break starts the 24th. If anyone else has any good advice for the trip, let me know, or just email me |

|Let people here know when your spring break is. People just might be willing to hook you up with a pull.|
|Yeeah! We're riding Orlando too. This will be my forth time out to ride with Craig. We'll be riding OWC too, and we hoping to hook up for a pull at the Projects, or Trevor Hansens place. There's all kind of places to ride there.|
|I think Orlando is the king of cheap hotels. You can find places for under $50 real easy. And Chris you should definitely take Craig up on his offer. He's got a great setup.|
|J-Rod, what time will you be down there? It will just be my buddy and I riding, so we really need a crew to ride with at least one of the days...|
|We'll be down March 14th through the 18th... |
I'm counting the days. Delta was 48 when we rode Sunday. LOL!!!
|damn guys that sounds awsome. and Craig we will be down there on march 3rd or 4th for the week.|
|Hey John, are you interested in riding with us Fri the 2cd at OWC?|
|Hey guys anyone that wants a pull let myself or Byrd know. We are located in the Winter Haven Area about 1 hour SW of Orlando. It's the chain where we are going to have wakefest.|
|J-Rod, absolutely. That's Mar 2nd I'm guessing. Maybe I can sneak in a day off work.|
|Wow...my calendar is a mess. I don;t know what I was thinking, but Thursday the 15th would likely be t day we ride OWC. |
There's a chance of Friday night the 16th also.
|Check out the boardingschool!|
|i second exactly what mikey just said|
|Hey Craig, I hope to be down in Kissimmee again in mid-March. I'll email you soon to see if I can hook up for a ride again. |
(I had to check out the pictures from riding at your place last year the other day when we got 2 feet of snow to remind me that it won't be too much longer!)
Duffy - you have mail...
|Good advice, but the boarding school is not "The cheap way to ride Orlando." |
We go just to have fun, ride OWC, and ride with a local pro we know out there on a private lake.
|If anyone needs info my E-mail is on my profile.|
