We were visiting the Keys once soon after they were going to secede and become the "Conch Republic." Seems the Feds had blocked off U.S. 1 and were searching cars for drugs that were coming in and out of the Keys so they were all up in arms because it was affecting their tourist business. Some of them were serious. To this day you can buy "Conch Republic" license plates, T-Shirts, and hats.

The Conch Republic! I love it. Jimmy Buffett for President. Why don't we get drunk as the national anthem. LOL
