Macgregor 26m

Hey folks,
I know this must get old- but I am thinking about buying a 2004 Macgregor 26m. My son and I live in Illinois and would like to haul it down to anywhere on the nothern gulf coast and put it in and sail to the keys and back this winter and then haul it back to Illinois. Eventually we would like to increase our cruising area to the Bahamas or Mexican coast as we get experience.
My questions are: is the 26m a quality boat for these trips?
Where would you put in at, and where could I leave my truck and trailer for, say 3 weeks to a month? Also what what gulf coast charts and books would you recommend or any adivce would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
