    Hello from the Sponge Coast of Florida

    Been reading the posts on this forum and watching the YouTube videos, I think I have caught the bug. Very impressed with how friendly folks are here, have to say it is the most well behaved of all the forums I frequent. Not sure if everyone's intention is to share their knowledge or their addiction but I guess I will give it a go.

    And, yet another in Florida. Welcome from the tourist coast in Volusia County.
    You must visit us in Ocala at the 4th Annual Florida Hang next January or many of the smaller group hangs we have in this wonderful state.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Hello from the Sponge Coast of Florida

    All this "Xxxxx" Coast business, probably sounds ludicrous to someone in Nebraska.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes. The "sponge coast" is kind of an inside thing for those who know about Tarpon Springs. Many people do not realize natural sponges are harvested from the ocean, or in our case the Gulf of Mexico. Tarpon Springs was known at one time as being the sponge capital of the world. My high school football team was known as the Fighting Spongers. When I was in the military I had to remove my high school ring because I got tired of explaining what a fighting sponger was. And yes that was probably too much information.
