    I just wanted to mention that the gates at the south end of the property will be locked so those people coming from the south would be better off going around. I can give you the combination but it would probably be quicker going around anyway.

    I also have a small folding grill I'll bring just in case. Is there any fishing close to the site? Better question would be CAN we fish the shoreline close to the site?

    I don't know the actual legalities but whatever is legal to do you can do here. Now, there is a place not too far from the first nights camp that you can get to the water and on Saturday we'll swing by Lake Godwin (a pretty little 20 acre lake with a dock out into the lake a ways) and you are welcome to try your hand at it.

    I can't tell you how successful you'll be (I haven't heard of anyone taking anything eating size out of Lake Godwin in a loooong time) but I will ask you to be careful if you fish Lake Arbuckle. I know the fishing is good there but it is also gator mating season (they are aggressive and this is when you hear about fatalities in FL) so be careful. There are LOTS of very big gators in that lake since it is about 95% undeveloped (roughly half of it is state forest and the other half is the Avon Park Air Force Range).

    Good to hear!! It will be good to see you again and this time you won't need to make multiple trips as a sherpa

    I have even lined up the other Grandma to fill in for this grandma, so the plan is even more together than it was.

    Speaking of the A-Team...like Murdock, I have intermittent memory loss...send me a text if I need to remember something. Thanks!

    OK. With a little editing, looks like you want me to get fish and gators for dinner. Cool. Bring your fork and knife
