Well I made the long drive to south FL. Was supposed to have been here two weeks ago but the corn-H virus delayed my scientifically laid out plans. Will update tonight when I return from hopefully making it back from Flamingo, Everglades National Park.

Welcome committee entering America’s Playground. Don’t tell them you spent a night in Louisiana, Alabama, or Mississippi. I don’t know what a yes answer would get you, but a Hell Naw will get you a friendly smile and waved on through. banana

Made it 16 hours and almost 900 miles before stopping and getting a couple of hours rest.

Through Miami and on last 20 miles south to Florida City.

Made arrangements to pick up my new to me, kayak, and shot the chit with my old fishing bud, then back to motel for needed sleep. [Linked Image]
This place is deserted, only 6 guests out of around 30 rooms. City is on lockdown, 10 pm curfew. If you don’t wear mask, you don’t get service at any store that’s open. These folks are serious. Worried about getting into park this morning. Not sure what to expect.. either first or second day it’s been reopened. [Linked Image]
Keeping it simple this trip. Out the door, 50 mile drive to Flamingo.

Later

When you stop for gas, look in the bucket with the long stick in it. You can use them to clean your windshield.

Have a safe trip.

Have you tried the Camel crush yet? You can go half regular cig then crush the filter and smoke the rest as menthol. Not bad.

Long day. Had alarm set for 4:30 a.m. as it’s a 50 mile drive from where I’m staying. Wasn’t sure if park was opening at a certain time or if it was opening 24/7 as it usually is. Decided to wait for daylight as I didn’t want to be waiting . Got gas, food, and was on my way. [Linked Image]
Had a convoy behind me as I entered the park. I was doing speed limit..50 and was watching rear view to see which d head would make a pass. It was like NASCAR.. everyone on each other’s bumpers, the folks behind me pulling out wide to see how many cars were ahead of me. A guy three cars back pulling boat tries the three car pass on short straightaway in no passing zone. I make sure he doesn’t make it past me as I tromp it. Yes, I’m one of those guys.roflmao He passed me later but not until I was ready.

There were more than 20 boats already on the water when I arrived. I’m greeted by 1000 no see’ums. bang
Had a great day. Lots of small fish but so many things to see and fish bit all day. Caught small snook, reds, jacks, a juvenile Goliath grouper and hooked three tarpon, all small, and landed one.

Much better pics on other camera but I didn’t bring laptop on this trip. Back at it tomorrow.
