Trek Across Florida

The Geezer crew of four pulled up stakes this morning and trekked the camper across the state to Collier-Seminole State Park south of Naples. We are on the northwest corner of the Everglades, home to Florida Panthers, Burmese Pythons, Alligators, and other cute critters (don't tell the ladies). Yesterday, we took a nice paddle on the Indian River Lagoon near camp, coming across a group of five Manatees feeding along shore.

After a 4 1/2 hour trip across the State, we set up camp and had dinner at the local biker bar - the Iron Rhino Saloon. They actually had a beer darker than lemonade, plus some good fried alligator. The guys were in heaven; the ladies stuck to standard biker bar fair - pulled pork and margaritas.
