and sadly... in six months, there will be another dozen or two because every time someone new heads for KW, rather than look over the old threads, they start one and then the same answers come out.

Just ONE thread, lots of posts. And we have more about KW, than we do the rest of the Keys, so all it'll take is time to read. :)

Or you could just look up your local BN Kdubs rep. He may have a few ideas that you most likely will not find in any of these threads. ;)

Its a small island. I'm very easy to find. :)

Looks like someone used the Search function? Wait, what's that again??? :lol:

In the first post I think it may be more useful to people to list the topic name instead of just the link.

Here's the first 5 from the above list:

So we're heading to The Keys

My Birthday in Key West

Just booked a trip...KW in April!

Key West March 9-13th

Heron House, Harbor Inn, or La Pensione?
Hey Snake, we need more wine!

You're more than welcome to list them all in that manner, as it is helpful. I simply didn't have the time.
