There are several open mouthed caves. Are you thinking something deeper? I will do some checking tomorrow with friends that still do on ground SAR. They would know.

When are you planning your trip? I will see if there are any special events or hikes going on. The eagles are hanging up at Cave Run right now which is pretty neat. Also how long are you staying?

well, cave as in chamber anyway. very smooth walls as worn out by particulates swished by water (sandstone?) it may be spherical... it's not large but not really open. it's supposed to be somewhere in the main hiking area but i think most miss it. this is going totaly from memory and it's been a while. i think i know who told me about it so i'll try to get a hold of him tomorrow.

3-4 days, later this week. i should know tomorrow. things aren't going like i need them to thus the trip is getting closer and shorter. i can probaly make it there in less then 5h so that's most likely where i'll end up.. like i said IF...

thanks my man.

off track: what's up with the governor?

Hey, it costs me ten bucks a day to drive around Orlando. The tolls here are absolutely brutal, and they got you by the short hairs because the alternate routes are nightmares.

Why didn't you just shoot up 95? To Chicago, I zip up 95 , and hang a left in Jax, drive just a few dozen miles, and then shoot north on 75 to Atlanta, and then cut over to 65 somewhere up there.

Are you thinking of Ocala? I meet the weirdest people from there.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Also check out Rock Bridge hike. It is only about 5 miles down and has good markings. Too chilly for skinny dipping right now but there is a great pond at the bottom of one of the falls. Several good old Indian caves. All those hikes are within the same area. Maps are available at the Lodge or from the Ranger station.

Here are a couple of pics [not mine] of Chimney Top and Half Moon.
Like I said, a bunch of pine trees. Go on a real hike, and meet my friends:
