It did not take but a couple of hours to get from 29N 82W to the vicinity of this confluence. So far I have been very lucky in having easy access to the targets. I think my luck just ran out. DeLorme shows one of those gray roads coming off of Hwy 441 and going to within about a half mile of the target. So far these "gray roads" have been either good dirt or even paved. At this location, I think someone had the idea to put a road but just never did. There is a fence and a gate just no road. (28 00.196N 81 01.343W). The surrounding area is bog with some parts being wetter than others. There are even some dry areas. I didn’t come this far to give up because of a little discomfort. There are no "NO Trespassing" signs so I forged ahead. The first 100 yds or so is not bad. This area has been cleared at one time. I wander around the general course of what should be a road and get to the last half a mile. The going is very tough at this point. Thick underbrush, many cactus and thorny vines. The vegetation is so thick that at times I lost the GPS signal. But with some determination I am able to get to the target. The GPS reading is not very stable. It reminds me of when SA was in effect. If you look for this spot you know when you have arrived when at the time you stop moving you are immediately covered by mosquitoes. I figure there were at least 100 to the square inch. I knew they were bad but didn’t know how bad until I stopped. These are the big hairy ones with the white spots. I didn’t take a lot of time on location. The underbrush was so thick there is not much to take a picture of. I took a couple of quick shots and got back to the safety of the motor home....
