"Micanopy went very well considering it started out with torrential rains! By the time we got there the rains had cleared up and we had a wonderful day. "

"It was a long drive but, the Hot Dog was good, the Banana Split de-lish, the Sun did finally come out and Faith got to take her top down. It was fun watching Donna's enjoyment seeing new (to her) smart owners with their smarts. MJB"

Payne's Prairie Preserve and Micanopy Experience at Equestrian Center

November 2, 2013 from 8am to 3pm
For those of you that are in or near Jacksonville, we will be meeting at the Equestrian Center in Jacksonville 13611 Normandy Blvd. at 8AM. We will leave from there going down Normandy Blvd. to 301. We will be heading to Payne's Prairie Preserve where we will drive through the park. The cost of driving through the park is $6 per car. It's a very scenic place and the last time Vicky and I were there we saw a lot of deer, wild turkeys, owls and wild horses. No promises what you will  see, but it…See More

First Coast Smarties

This is a club for those that just enjoy being around other smart owners and want to do things around town that don't actually have to cost an arm and a leg.See More

Car Wash

I'm getting ready to head out the house this morning and get my car washed at the smart center. I hope there are some other smart owners there this morning. It's recruiting time!

The Wave

Posted on September 1, 2010 at 12:09am 4 Comments

I went to St. John's Town Center the other day and as I was turning, I came across another Smart owner. I was so happy to see another one and even happier when they waved. It felt good and I wanted so bad to turn around and talk to them. Many times, in this city, the cars that pass by on the road are so far away that if they are waving, you can't see it. Whoever you were, I would love to have you join the club I am about to start for the Jacksonville area. This club is going to be a lot more… Continue

Road Trip

Posted on August 16, 2010 at 9:18pm 1 Comment

I decided to take my smart car to Mississippi last week. It was going to be an almost 600 mile trip one way. My sweet Salma was only a week old at the time and I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I sure did look forward to it. The first challenge was figuring out what we were going to be able to bring for one week. So, after making sure that the two golf bags were in the car, the carryon luggage filled to the top with clothes and two laptops, the two camera bags and the cowboy… Continue

Jacksonville Smart Car Club

Posted on August 5, 2010 at 11:27pm 10 Comments

I was really excited when I saw that there were 34 members in the Jax club. I was even more excited when I saw that they did something monthly on Saturday. I became totally bummed when I saw the club hadn't done anything since last year. I would like to energize the club and get the smarties out for all to see. I am having a blast right now with mine. I was putting gas in it and this lady started a conversation with me about how small it was, so I told her to go sit in it. She was totally… Continue

Marvin,  glad to help.  Just a caveat: the 'status' box on the main page, Latest Activity gets buried down into the page and disappears when new posts come in and unless a person is watching the main page they might miss it.  I just happened to catch your message.  I didn't see any email forwards of the Status Box messages as well.

It was good to meet you too. We really enjoyed it. We wanted to attend more, but we had to get back to Mobile. My son had school Mon. and I had a case early.

Hope to see you at future events.

Marvin - is the event being held *in Orlando? At the smart dealership there? I live in central Florida, but bought my fortwo in Orlando. I'd enjoy meeting other owners there...

Thanks!

Hi Marvin! We got Sam B from Miami to our Houston smart car Club. She is a hoot. We are so glad she joined our group. You can check her photos on our club page at her first Houston club event!

Marvin, I got back from vacation late last nite. We had a wonderful time and it was very safe, I'm happy to say. We went to Progresso and Cozumel. There was a tropical storm brewing, (Paula), but we were well ahead of her. Just glad to be home!

I will be extra careful, tell you all about it when I get back.

Hi Marvin, what's going on with you? I'm on vacation and on my way to Mexico, going on a cruise with the Red Hatter's. I'll be gone for a week, and I will catch up with you when I get back. Take care.
