Lutz, Florida (high 94, low 72)
The plan is to head south. We will be above Lake Okeechobee, and to the west of Vero Beach. There is no real town nearby the prairie.
I spoke to the ranger yesterday and I think we just might be the only people in the park! Now, I’m really wondering why? Is it that bad? Is it too remote? Are no other people in the witness relocation program.
He said Verizon phone service was spotty. Uh-oh. I really can’t be without a phone very long. It makes me nervous if something should go wrong. Makes you wonder how we ever survived without cell phones, doesn’t it?
We’re hoping that we will be able to find a signal if we walk around the park a little, but I guess it remains to be seen.
So….we may be out of communication for a while.
We’re actually looking forward to being in a remote wilderness area. The ranger said the prairie is loaded with wildflowers. As long as we can pick up an occasional cell signal, we’ll be happy for a few days. If we can’t we might be heading over to Vero Beach a little sooner than planned.
As always, our plans are written in jello.
If you don’t hear from us for a few days, call the Coast Guard!
