#1: Me on target

(visited by Roger Rockwell and Mary Jo Rockwell)

09-Oct-2000 -- Things went so well this morning at getting 30N 82W I decided to go to 30N 85W. This would give me a total of 7 visits and 1 attempt. Not bad for a weekend of tromping around Florida back roads. From Stark we took some short cuts East until we picked up HWY 27, which we took to Perry, Fl. In Perry we picked up HWY 98. At around 29 55N 84 24W Hwy 98 runs close to the water. This has got to be one of the most scenic areas in the country. Places like Carrabelle and Apalachicola where most commercial activities evolve around fishing. There are no better Oysters anywhere than those that come from Apalachicola.

The map does not give a lot of clues as to what to expect around this target. The elevation is very low with a lot of areas that indicate that it may be possible that the target is in a marsh. As I turn north on SR 65, the actual terrain looks, as I was afraid it would. To my pleasant surprise when I arrive at the little gray road that leads to the target I find it to be a very passable dirt road. We continue down this road to find that the Target ends up being in the middle of an Oasis. The target is in the middle of a well-manicured Federal Camp Ground complete with a sign that says "Welcome to Lake Wright."

After we take our pictures we head home but not before stopping in Ft Walton for a well deserved ICE CREAM!!
