The pilot of the Beech 55 said he was distracted while talking on the radio, and delayed his descent prior to landing on runway 29 at the destination airport. As a result, the airplane was "too high, too fast, and 120 knots over the trees" prior to touchdown on the 4,100-foot long runway. The airplane continued to float, and the pilot determined that he "couldn't go around." The airplane touched down, and continued off the departure end of the runway, down a hill, and impacted a fence. According to the pilot, there were no deficiencies in the performance and handling of the airplane.
