    How far south in Florida are you going and for how long? East coast side, West Coast side?

    You could have a #25 bag shipped to your hotel to hold for you.

    Silver Springs State Park is wonderful!
    Silver Springs is an unincorporated community in Marion County, Florida, United States. It is the site of Silver Springs, a group of artesian springs and a historic tourist attraction that is now part of Silver Springs State Park.

    And, if you want to paddle - https://www.silverriverkayakrentals...GhxXu38M7o9TS6G4Z83HD3O2SqCbcWWhoCwhUQAvD_BwE

    St Augustine makes a nice place to visit too.

    St. Augustine is a city on the northeast coast of Florida. It lays claim to being the oldest city in the U.S., and is known for its Spanish colonial architecture as well as Atlantic Ocean beaches like sandy St. Augustine Beach and tranquil Crescent Beach. Anastasia State Park is a protected wildlife sanctuary.

    And of course....a trip to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okefenokee_Swamp

    We are going to Jacksonville and then st Petersburg. We go camping 5 days at fort de soto. We won't be getting a hotel. The places you mentionned seems nice I will take a look if it's on our path, we do have to cross florida from east to west. Is there any way to get that 25 lbs bag myself? We have our kayaks but we won't bring them...

    A few more tweaks to the main structure today. I’ll caulk the seams and fit the roof next.

    In St Augustine...

    The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park is one of Florida's oldest continuously running attractions, having opened on May 20, 1893.[3] Not only does it have 24 species of crocodilians, but also a variety of other reptiles, mammals and birds, as well as exhibits, animal performances and educational demonstrations.

    She has grown quite a bit. Especially if you look at her in comparison with the human hand next to her. ;)

    Sigh, A really good pillow is so hard to find. Yet in the olden days way back when most people only had their arms for a pillow. And if they were rich, probably a pillow case and straw. And I don't think they had many back problems etc as people do today. Buuuuttt then again they were also a lot more active and did not sit in front of TV's or computers all day long everyday. So maybe it is not the pillows which are the problems. But I agree, I also struggle to find a decent pillow.

    Well Good Monday Morning All,

    I missed Friday, Saturday and Sunday. But at least I am back today. We had a nice and sunny weekend. The torts went outside of course, and I noticed that since Rue has officially become a boy, he has been giving Harry a hard time. And don't be like Jarrod and take that the wrong way. Anyway I am going to have to create a new enclosure for Rue so that the others will have a break and not get harassed all the time. Today it was overcast when I left, so I did not take them outside. Does anybody know when exactly they become fertile? Is it when they start flashing or is there more maturity that needs to be attained first?
