    My dad lives in Brooksville and may start riding, so I may take more trips up to the Withalacoochee trail (which is my fave, but just so dern far away).
    - good for your dad! get him out there...

    - when you're on the trail - if you see an old guy on a '06 Roubaix it will be my riding buddy... i'll be the one on the 20-year-old red 'cross bike w/700x27 Speedblends...

    So where is this Pineapple Junction anyway? I can't find it in my gazeteer or mapquest..

    (I originally thought it was down near Ft. Pierce since there used to be a pineapple plantation in that area)

    - AKA Pineapple Park... i.e., i'm a 'Parkie'

    (geographic center of the Pinellas County peninsula... folks in Pineapple Park with nicer homes would much rather have a Largo address, but the United State Postal Service knows better)

    In other words..........a P Parker! Would never claim to be from there. That is the white trash center of Florida.

    Sarasota checking in.

    Not so much of a roadie anymore, but I do mountain bike (yeah, in FL). Usually head to Alafia State Park southeast of Brandon, or over to Mulberry.

    When I have time I head up to Santos Trail south of Ocala.

    I guess I should be more tolerant of Gators. One of my sons-in-law went to law school there and my nephew's girlfriend is Alberta (one of the mascots).

    Yeah, but at least you beat the Canes.

    Don't like the Canes, them and Notre Dame. God's team, yeah right!

    Oh yeah, sssshhhhh don't tell anyone, but I never ever liked Steve Spurrier. Always of the opinion he was a great offensive coordinator, but never a good head coach. Don't think he cared too much about defense. Other than, those guys who give my offense a bit of a break every once in awhile.

    I prefer the canes over the 'noles, but I'll second the comments about Spurrdog. I think he did elevate the U, but I always felt he was more interested in hitting the links than being a head ball coach.

    Unfortunately, I think he may come in here on November 11th and try to mop up the place just to rub Jeremy Foley's nose in it.

    OK, enough football talk.

    Got that right!!! After having my homeowners insurance increase almost 200% since Francis and Jeanne, I got my notice of non-renewal this past week. Fun, fun! My homeowners insurance is going to be considerably more expensive than my mortgage.

    So far I've been lucky. Unlink some of my coworkers, my insurance hasn't been canceled nor have the rates increased astronomically.

    We had ours dropped in '95 a few years after Andrew and for the first two years it was rough finding an underwriter that didn't want a few pounds of flesh. It's gotten reasonable again, but we haven't seen the bill for 2007 yet..

    *sigh*

    $8k for property taxes? holy moley, I thought Alachua county was bad..

    Panama City

    Actually, Lynn Haven, Fl -- nearest neighbor to Panama city. Today is my birthday and I am now the proud owner of my first 'road' bike. 2007 Giant OCR3w -- such a sweet ride. My commuter is a 2006 Trek SU100 -- very different style of riding. The cool weather is sneaking its way here and I can hardly wait to ride to work in the 60s in the morning. I want to learn how to ride better and faster thus the road bike.

    Anybody ride LOST? I did this last week and road from Pahokee to Clewiston. It was a 60mi round trip. I found the path in good shape but you have to go around many locked gates and riding on top of the levee was both windy and hot with the sun beating down. Other experiences?
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large
