Is the address listed in the original post correct?  Google Maps puts me at the intersection of SR 207 and CR 13 S?

Sounds like fun. Best to all!

I got to attend an informative South Florida Palm Society meeting last week at Fairchild Tropical Garden and then the excellent Palm Beach club’s sale at Mounts Botanical Garden last Saturday too. 

Yes, we need a palm society in Puerto Rico!

I had the pleasure of a tour of Mike Dahme's amazing collection pre hurricane Maria.

Rain cut my time short as driving in Barranquitas requires care even in dry daylight conditions. 

I am looking forward to planting out all the seedlings and seeds he gave me, with plenty left to share with other palm lovers on the island plus a return visit.

And it would be great to have Mike help with a club here.

I plan on going but a map would help

Assuming you are coming from Bokeelia and that the location is accurate:

Take I-75 N to I-4 East to I-95 N, or any other route to I-95 N you so choose. 

On I-95 N, take exit 298 and turn left at the end of the exit ramp to get onto US-1 South.

After passing under the interstate, turn right after the Sunoco to get on County Road 204 West.

Go straight through the intersection with Old Brick Road to continue onto County Road 13.

Continue on County Road 13 and the location will be on the right. 

If you see the Mt. Olive Baptist Church on your right, you went too far.

I attached a map for your reference below.

I can confirm the property at 8310 Co Rd 13, Hastings, FL 32145 belongs to John Rossi.  If you were having the same experience as @tank above when Googling/MapQuesting/GPSing the address as given in the initial post, copy the one in bold and paste it into Google and you should get the correct directions.  The map I posted above for @Steve the palmreader shows an accurate route to this location.  Sorry for any confusion.

A good question deserves a good answer ;)  I decided to stay the weekend so I just got back.  Let's just say that you were one of the stars of the show without even being physically present.  The auction was great and the cycad fans were noticeably impressed by the goodies you sent.  For me personally, this was the most fun meetup/field trip I've been to, so a special thanks from me in addition to the standard "on behalf of the organization(s) and host" thank you.  To list every single person who said thank you would take all afternoon.  A very successful meet-up in all respects.

      SUMMER MEETING At our last meeting, it was announced that we would meet at Leu Gardens on or around June 13, 2020.  Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns and Orlando cancelling all indoor meetings through June, we will not be holding an official meeting.  A group of members who have reciprocal memberships to Leu Gardens will go that morning to walk the gardens while respecting the social distancing guidelines.  Others are welcome to do the same should they deem it safe to do so.   QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER The Palmateer will still be published and those who wish to submit an article, photograph or other content are encouraged to email their content to palmateer@cfpacs.com by June 15th.  If you write an article with pictures, it is requested to also attach the original images as the images embedded in document files do not always resize properly.  For those looking for back issues to read during quarantine, they are posted here: http://cfpacs.com/org/palmateer/   While you are at the site, you should notice that it has a new look that is much improved.   SEED BANK The seed bank portion of the site is scheduled for a long overdue update to reflect our current inventory.  Those with seeds to donate should contact our seed bank coordinator at: Theseedbank@yahoo.com   LOOKING FORWARD The plan for the year was to have the Fall Meeting at Montgomery Botanical Gardens and the Holiday meeting somewhere on the east coast.  With the current situation being what it is, it's really a guess as to whether those plans will be altered, amended or cancelled as we move forward through tenuous times.  Notification will be through email if you are on our mailing list and will be posted on PalmTalk.   Stay safe everyone!
