    End of the world: RV camping on Cedar Key | Florida Rambler
    On a balmy fall weekend, we drove our RV through unending miles of forest and farmland to a spit of small islands on the Gulf of Mexico where clams are king, history is rich and people are scarce.

    Rock Springs Run | Florida Rambler
    Paddling the full length of Rock Springs Run in a kayak has long been on my bucket list, so when I returned to the Wekiva River Basin this fall, I had full intention to fulfill the promise. It was not to be.

    Lake Wales Ridge: 'Highlands,' old-fashioned flavor | Florida Rambler
    When folks say Central Florida, what comes to mind? Orlando, Disney, theme parks? There is another Central Florida and it makes a delightful discovery: the Lake Wales Ridge. Like a spine up the middle of the state, the Lake Wales Ridge is a 150-mile-long stretch of higher ground, extending from Clermont on the north to Lake Placid on the south.

    Florida's Talbot Islands: Windswept beaches, pristine backwaters | Florida Rambler
    You don't feel like you're in Florida's largest city, but you are. You are on the unsullied, windswept edge. Separated from the urban sprawl of Jacksonville by a marshy back-country alive with spirited wildlife, these islands, waterways, coastal forests and beaches defy the presence of a city.

    2017 Charlotte Harbor Freedom Swim: 4th of July in Florida | Florida Rambler
    PUNTA GORDA - It started small and spontaneous. Twenty five years ago, Punta Gorda attorney Michael Haymans and some friends decided to celebrate the Fourth of July by swimming the 1.5 mile distance across the Peace River. They weren't athletes in training; they had heard stories about how in the 1940s, swimming across the river was a rite of passage for teens.

    Kayaking Arbuckle Creek: Unexpected beauty at a bombing range | Florida Rambler
    Yet we found one of the most beautiful, untouched kayaking trails in Florida and it serves as the border for the Avon Park Air Force Range. The bombing range, in fact, is why you can paddle for hours on Arbuckle Creek with the only sign of man being barbed wire and "WARNING!"
