  1. I too have been astonded at the number of Floridians that refuse to ware a mask. I live in central Florida and get the impression people think since the state opened the pandemic must be over. I'm in the over 65 age group and wonder when I will be infected when I don my mask to run errands. The local health officials have been on the news most every evening urging people to practice social distancing and to wear a mask. These pleas seem to fall on deaf ears. Orange County issued mandatory mask wear a week or so ago. Seminole County (where I live) will mandate mask wear starting July 1. I understand Daytona has issued mandatory wear as well. According to national news, Florida isn't the only state to have problems with increased infections. A report I saw yesterday said 29 states have seen dramatic increases in daily infections. Go figure.

  3. I checked on Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive facebook page and as of yesterday (May 14), it is still closed to traffic. There are areas where it is legal to park and bicycle or hike on the Lake Apopka Loop Trail or most of the roads. Here is a link to the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lakeapopkawildlifedrive/
  4. Central Florida began to open up last week, so I grabbed my gear and headed (May 7th) to the Orlando Wetlands. When I pulled into the parking lot at 6:30AM there was only one other car there. When I left severals hours later there where 26 cars in the parking lot. Proving people wanted to get out of isolation. The place is so large and spread out that I passed only six people, and was able to socially-distance myself from them.

  6. Norwegian Dawn amd Harmoney of the Seas in Costa Maya.
  7. I agree that the best place in Tampa is the port valet. I have used it twice and will continue to do so when sailing from Tampa. Convenient, fast, and easy!
  8. I'll take a "wait and see" approach.
  9. I am not familiar with Miami, but a search on Google Maps has a public transit option between Port Miami and Coconut Grove. Appears to take about 1 hour at best.
  10. I have purchased used equipment from both B&H and KEH. No regrets or disappointments from either company. I do recommend you compare the "deal" on the used sites with the new price, and pay attention to the sites equipment rating. Both B&H and KEH have grading systems so you know what to expect at delivery. www.keh.com/shop/grading-system
  11. It appears that Greyhound has fares between Tampa and Rockledge, FL for under $30.00 per person one way and UberX estimate from Rockledge to Port Canaveral is $46.96. A little over $100 for two people from Tampa to Port Canaveral. Then whatever the cost from you house to the Greyhound station in Tampa times 2 for a round trip fare.
  12. Ask several crew members where they go. It seems the crew is well informed about the places with free wifi.
