Seems our lucky gas station deity has disappeared! (Read our last blog about Keys travel here). Still, the best price on diesel as you drive into the Keys can be found here at the Ocean Powerful station on the right just as you get off the turnpike in Florida City and onto Hwy 1 heading south. Even if you don’t need it, make the stop — you won’t find anything cheaper as you head south, check GasBuddy.
Being budget-conscious not only fits our less-is-more credo, it also lets us live more VANlife.
This weekend we take VANdal to Islamorada for kiting, SUP, and a little R&R.
Fun fact about Islamorada, the purple isle: It’s known as the Sport Fishing Capital of the World. More world records sizes and number of species are consistently caught here within a short boat ride of the key.
