I'm a new member, so may be late with my message. Have you taken your Florida trip yet, and are some of those videos available for viewing? I live in Florida and have a website that focuses on travel down here on the roads less traveled. I would give you the URL as a reference, but can't tell if the forum rules allow that or not. Anyway, have a good trip if you haven't made it yet. If you made it already, I hope it was fun.
Your hypotenuse trail trip has inspired me to try the same thing in the near future. Problem is, the economy forced me to get rid of my Prius and buy a 20 year old Toyota. I hope it makes it.
