DAY 1

Another place another blog entry. Initial reaction is all I have at this point I am sure much more later. As we drove deeper and deeper into the Ocala National Forest there were more and more bear 🐻 signs of every type. If you feed them you go to jail, if you come across one don't run, (easy for them to say) don't play dead (why play if you're dead) don't climb trees 🌲 and get this, act big and be firm but don't yell....what the hell does that mean? ? campsites all have bear 🐻 boxes to put stuff in (how about myself) and chain link fences around shelter houses and around some trees! I also had to sign a release form on bear 🐻 information and if anything happens to me or my possessions. This is serious stuff! Late afternoon we were about to cook up some chicken dogs but first I had to ask other campers if it was o.k. and not bring a herd of bears for a human buffet starring me. Lol. The other campers are hard core and very friendly in fact we got a late start setting up camp because of "Preacher Dave" stopping over and according to him "save my soul". It was so so funny I told him he better pack a lunch. Went out for dinner tonight and had to drive 20 miles to the nearest restaurant. Tomorrow lots of stuff planned so it will be a good day if I don't get eaten by a bear 🐻 tonight. It's going to be 38 tonight, far cry from the warm nights down in the Everglades.

On the way to Juniper Springs came across this place selling big cool stuff!
