Start of the Trek166 viewsHere we see Finley and Mike alighting from Mike's gigantic Dodge Ram truck. This is at the parking area at the south end of the Seminole State Forest, by SR 46. We had all driven up to the north end (off SR 44) and I left my Jeep there. Then, we all drove back to the south end, prompting the insouciant question (from Dick), "Wait a minute. Why didn't we drop one car here and then drive to the north end?" I have no answer for that other than I wanted to do it THIS way!
