• Week 2 Suwannee River!

    For my second week I’m staying at the “Original Suwannee River Campground”  and yes, it is very….very original.  A lot of people live here full time and everyone was quite friendly.

    I didn’t even take the kayak off the truck but spent many hours riding my bike along the Nature Coast State Trail.  It used to be a railroad track but has been converted to a paved nature trail.  It goes on for 32 miles and connects 5 small towns.  It also crosses the Suwannee River via and old rebuilt trestle.

    I also visited Manatee Springs State Park.  It has some very clear water that stays approximately 72 degrees year round.

    Of course this Florida water snake made me think twice about going swimming…… 🙂

  • First Stop….Frog Creek!

    My first week on the road is being spent at Frog Creek Campground in Palmetto, Florida.  I am spending the week getting things packed and situated as well as ironing out several bugs and glitches.  After my first night I went and bought a 4″ thick memory foam pad for the mattress.  Life on the road is much more fun when you get a good nights sleep… 🙂

    The kayaking was excellent through Frog Creek and out into Terr Ceia Bay……Although I’m sure I’ll be growing an extra limb after the helicopter flew over and doused me with mosquito spray……What the hell is that stuff!!!!…
