After spending three incredible nights camping at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, Myakka River State Park, and Everglades National Park, I have decided to cut the Florida section of this trip a bit short. I got to Everglades National Park on Tuesday only to find the mosquitos were far worse than I expected. I knew they would be bad, but even with bug spray on I could only handle being outside of my car for about ten minutes! What a shame! I pretty much had the whole park to myself, as well. The following morning I rented a motel to recharge and reassess and concluded that I'd had enough of the heat.
With the extra time, I decided to head north and explore the south a bit more. Yesterday I drove from the bottom edge of Florida to a Walmart in Waycross, Georgia where I slept in the parking lot. And this morning I drove to Savanna where I'm writing this blog. I have a week to kill before I am meeting up with some friends to camp in North Carolina. Let me know if you have any suggestions for Savannah, Charleston, or Ashville!
