So, what is everyone doing for July 4th? My daughters birthday is on the 1st so we are just getting together with family and friends to celebrate both her birthday and the holiday.
I'm trying to convince her that the fireworks are in her honor :whistling2:

Going to my parents' house in Crystal River and watching fireworks over King's Bay. Cookout during the day, play with Michael (the beautiful 9 month old boy in my Avatar) in the wading pool, just kick back and take it easy. :boat:

Crystal River was on my list from www.pickyourspot.com of places that I should consider moving to.

What's it like over there?
Very nice. If you like coastal living, it's a great place. Not nearly as crowded as the "other" coast of FL, or further south on the W. coast of FL. I'd live there, if I didn't live here.

Today, sealed my asphalt Drive. 4100 sqft :sad: My Father in Law has a concession trailer with cotton candy machines and shave ice. I got roped again into helping him at the 4th of July festivities. Seems I never get to take a break.

Thad, Ocala is cool. Wifes Family lives in the National Forest there on a Lake. We go from time to time. Great relaxing.

I've heard some disturbing things about the ONF lately...they're really cracking down on the squatters, homeless, and transients living there in some of the campgrounds. Said they've found something like 20 meth labs in the past year, including one that blew up!

Ocala is great, booming town, lots of growth, lots of huge neighborhoods in which to market work! Kind of like a smaller Orlando without the horrible traffic.

Definitley money there. Lexington has just won a suit because Ocala was claiming "Horse Capital Of The World". Lexingto without a doubt has that title. But Ocala does have plenty of that horse money.

I heard that stuff about the OCN also. Because I only visit from time to time, I couldn't say I know first hand.

Well, there are certainly nice ares of the ONF. It is the most visited national forest in the SE. But there are many unregulated campgrounds/campsites where squatters and the like live. They're working to clean things up and get rid of the drugs and crime that are apparently very common in some areas of the ONF

Wow, sounds great. If things don't go well for me I can live in the park for free and make meth.
:rolleyes:

I was intrigued by the JAX area because the striper fishing is supposed to be good there.
I LOOOOOOOOOve fishing for srtipers and that is a huge plus for me!
The only thing I miss about Jackson, MS is going to the Ross Barnett spillway every morning before work during the winter and catching a few hybrids before work.

Yeah, they had fireworks in Gainesville last night, but we stayed home and watched the ******** across the lake fire theirs off instead.

Amazing..they can't afford to fix up their house, their cars, their trucks, or their wimmin, but they can sure go drop a coupld grand on fireworks! LOL

We're going down to Crystal River in an hour or so. They're doing fireworks tonight. We were going to take the boat out and watch them from there, but we're not comfortable taking Michael (9 1/2 months) out on the boat at night with a bunch of drunken fools on the water.
