Hey you all! Just got back camping at this great state park. Half price over 65 Florida residents or diabled-- $15/day RV or tenting. All camping sites in three areas are RV capable with water and elect provided. The river forms two big lakes. You can fish and Kayak anywhere. The park is basically hammacks (mixed oak, pine and palms) and pine plains. Has a nice canopy walkway and tower, 28 miles of hiking trails with half a dozen primitive camping sites, off road biking trails, and even horse trails. There are concession facilities with neat gifts, snacks, basic food stuffs, beer, ice, a small cafe, air boat tours daily, canoe and kayak rental. Wonderful place to fish, and bird and animal watch. I'll go back again after I purchase a kayak.
Rolled from Indianapolis to check out Lookout Mt. TN. Ruby Falls is there=1.5 hour walking into the cave and to the falls. Then on to Point Park five minutes away and the souvenir shop with a 30 minute film of the battle of Chatanooga and neat Civil War aritifacts. Next 12 miles on along the mountain ridge to the Hang Gliding School (world famous) and observations of take-offs from the launch point and then down to the landing area to see the flyers come circling down and land. I'm cutting the trip short and will return to Fort Myers Beach through Atlanta and a quick visit with Lee, Greg, and Sunny Girl. Got to get home to begin planning for moving to a new house just four door down from my present location on the island... So, bye for now. Blessings, regards, and love to all. ==mrcyogi
Travled up from SW Kentucky, Mammoth Cave National Park, to Indianapolis to visit my old high school buddy, John Cadwalder and meet his wife Donna. We played a couple of golf rounds and renewed a friendship.
