Good-bye, Florida

Back in the city, and starting Monday, all new NYC posts. I hope you enjoyed my write-up of our roadtrip to Key West. One final bit of advice if you decide to make the trek yourself: when you go to take a picture of yourself standing at the southern-most point in the continental United States…


…make sure you’re actually standing at the southern-most point in the continental United States.


PS – A couple of weeks ago, donations to my film tipped the $15,000 mark, which is incredible. I’m going to do a full update on the status of the project soon. In the meantime, the good news is that my script, Containment, was a top 10 finalist out of something like 1,000 entries in a pretty well-regarded competition. It’s also a contender in another major contest, where an early peak at the judge’s scorecard revealed solid 9’s across the board. Hooray!

The less encouraging news: it’s not going to be cheap. I’m trying to figure it all out now, but to the 700+ readers who’ve donated (including some who have donated multiple times) – THANK YOU. The money is quietly sitting in the bank waiting to make my dream come true when the time is right.

If you enjoyed reading this post, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? The goal is $50,000, and to date, 1,728 Scouting NY readers have donated $36,348! Just $5 or $10 can make a difference - AND you get this snazzy Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a Thank-You gift! Click here to donate today!

  1. Once again, you have made me laugh out loud in a quiet office. Thanks.

    Also, congratulations on the positive feedback for the script.

  2. Congratulations Scout, for the good news!
    And a big THANK YOU for documenting your awesome trip to Florida!

  3. I remember the Southernmost point in Key West being the big buoy.

    Others mention it’s on a military base the public can’t access, so what is the location where the picture was taken and is anything on the sign you’re posing next to?

  4. Not Yet Measured

    Grats, Scout!

    I like your About. Is that new language?

  5. Hey Nick, look at it this way. You were as far south as you could get on that pier. Ain’t nobody behind you. Great trip buddy, thanks for sharing.
