Lakeathon 2007 was held in Winter Haven, FL, from April 13 through April 16.  For the first time ever, the annual Lake convention was scheduled adjacent to the Sun 'n Fun fly-in that opened April 17 at nearby Lakeland, FL.

To keep non-attending Lake Flyers Club members abreast of the events, Steve Whitney maintained a blog (weblog)--"Lakeathon (almost) Live!" during the convention.

The blog is recreated here, using the links at right.  Photos below are from the blog, and include the writer's trip to Florida and back home to the Chicago area.
