Old geezer desert rat here. I spent some time in Florida some years ago and it is a rather interesting place. Flat with no mountains but world class cave diving and other scuba related activities.

On a short trip through the Okefenokee swamp, learning to recognize alligators, I realized that this country was the polar opposite of Arizona, where dry land was abundant and water was scarce. Florida is precisely opposite....

Cave diving is more challenging and taxing than nearly any mountaineering. The state has Everglades National Park an lots of archaeology. What more could one want?

A local weatherman was asked.....if you had to deal with the WORST 'storm/catastrophe' mother nature was going to throw at you.... what would you choose? He replied, "A hurricane. No matter how large or strong..... you gets DAYS advanced notice."

Yeah, I can see that the days of notice would be notice. With a tornado it appears (fairly suddenly), moves erratically and vanishes into the ether. Still, I no desire to experience either one.
