I'm thinking about heading south to Key West come June and from there hopping onto, hiring, stealing, buying, some form of boat to the Caribbean. I don't know much about the place (all of my travel has been in the states), other than its warm, there are beaches, and one can perhaps drink and sleep on these beaches. :p Basically what I'm asking for is info about the Caribbean from people who have been there and know what the hell is up. Islands to hit, Islands to avoid. Tips on getting there with no cash. Camping spots. How to get food. Things like that. I'd fucking love to Island it up all summer.


Thanks in advance.

having lived in key west, let me tell you that it's going to be ridiculously hot until fall comes around. extremely high humidity. i couldn't handle it. that said, it's not a terrible town, although it's hard to find places to camp. you're going to want to get a bike while you're there.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
