...I bought a little piece of it! Mom texted me yesterday telling me that one of their neighbors was trying to sale them his place. It's right across the road from where they rent. It sounded like a great deal and I even offered to go in half if they wanted to. They thought about it but decided they didn't want to buy a place when they're not sure how many more years they'll be going down there and they just can't handle that drive more than a couple times a year. I asked for the guys name and number, called him up, made a offer, and we close April 27th. It's just an old single wide on a big lot, but it looks to be in decent shape and will work just fine as our little fish camp. Can't wait to get some vacation time so I can go see it!

The vehicles and the junk under the carports belongs to the neighbor who watches over the place, but everything inside the trailer stays. I plan on taking my old truck down there and leaving it and I'm gonna look for a boat to keep down there too. It's not on the water but there's 2 nice boat ramps just down the road.
I sure am getting excited to get down there and check the place out! I'm working nights this weekend and it's kinda slow so I've been online checking out all the nearby springs and reading up on shrimping. Most of the shrimping in that area is done in the winter over around Daytona at night with lights and dip nets but there is also a summer run right in the St Johns River north of Lake George in which folks use cast nets. You find them on your graph and then throw on top of them. That's usually later in the summer though so I'll have to find something else to chase after in early June. Maybe some big gills! Gail's daughter along with Colton and his girlfriend are gonna fly down and meet us. I hired a local guy to clean up the outside of the place so hopefully Gail and me can knock out the inside cleaning and still have time to play while we're there.
Drove straight through on Monday and have been working our asses off ever since. Mainly just cleaning. Might as well because I haven't seen the sun since Kentucky! Never seen just set in rains like this down here. Bought a boat today and I think we got a good deal; 18' pontoon with a remote control trolling motor, bimini top, live well, 40hp, and trailer. Pretty good shape too for $3700.
