We had an uneventful ride south from Walkabout Campground
to the Pittman Visitors Center in Altoona, Florida.
It did pour down rain a couple times on the ride, but no biggie.
I noticed all the places that I've read about in others' blogs..
Salt Springs, The Yearling Trail, Juniper Springs..
We can't wait to explore all these areas.
George pulled into the driveway of the visitors center,
and we saw there were two RV sites in the back,
one already had someone in it.
I went inside and talked to Carol who was manning the VC.
She and her husband, Jim, have been workamping here for 5 seasons!
They're in charge of the visitors center.
George backed us in to our site..
This is the visitors center building..
We're surrounded by these nice oak trees hanging with Spanish moss..
After we got settled,
we were greeted by Ellis, one of the other volunteers,
Bret, the Program Manager,
and Bob, another volunteer.
We got our shirts, gloves, and supplies.
They told us that there is free WiFi to use,
and we get the use of a Forest Service truck to do our rounds.
Our job is maintenance, and we'll be driving around
picking up garbage at some of the trailheads, day use areas,
and campgrounds in the southern Ocala Forest.
We'll work 24 hours each per week, but at the same time.
Ellis is going to give us the tour of the areas on Saturday.
Both of us are looking forward to exploring what Florida has to offer!
