I live in West Oxfordshire and thank you for your kind offer, I will take you up on that nearer the time. I am looking for a major tour in the US and this looked to me to be ideal as flights from the UK are abundant to FL and back from DC. I would aim for early April start but could use some knowledge about terrain and prevailing winds, can you help with this? As a side issue would you be prepared to give a little insight into owning and living (part year) in the US. I have retired early and this may be a consideration for us, email me if you wish.
