    I recognize him from a recent Insurance company commercial. Hope you exercised caution!

    This one was quite the conversationalist.......Barked at me for the better part of 15 minutes.

    He wasn't barking at you. He was dictating the terms of your surrender.

    Well about 10 minutes after he left he came back with a herd of them and they ran all over the campsite. It was an ambush. But i held my ground. They were eyeing my scones on the table but I didn't share. Peanuts only.

    I tried to warn you. But take heart, Florida and some nearby states have appropriate Military Units that can assist. Joint Special Forces Command is only 90 min away in Tampa, C-130 Gunships are in the Pan-Handle as are a major detachment US RANGERS and can be on station in 90 min as well. The 82nd and the 101st Airborne are both less 2.5 hours away with plenty of good Drop Zones very close

    Love them. So calm. Near loop 2000? Several weeks ago I saw a group of aprox. 5 crossing through Site 2051 heading that area around the bus stop.
