RE: Florda State Parks mostly open for day use, camping 5/20

We just came back from Manatee and it was bizarre. Picnic tables were open andin use but picnic tables under a roof were taped off. The swimming area for small kids was taped off. They had maybe a hundred blue 'x's' taped on the side walk spaces about 6 feet apart. That park has never had that many people in it and what do they expect, that people are going to line up to take a swim?? Not a ranger in sight either. And the ranger at the gate denies knowing anything about reopening camping even tho they are taking reservations for the 25th on? Despite the foolishness we had a great swim in the spring, we were just about the only two really swimming, tho there were a couple paddling around the edge. The water is very clear for the springs tho not crystal clear. As for the delay it never made sense to close camping in the first place. And leave the hiking trails open so people can get exercise. Georgia did not. Close the rest rooms and visitor centers OK but camping is a low population activity. Florida has almost 100% elected state officers from one party, but one the commissionaire of Agriculture is from the opposite party and she is in control of the parks and I assume closed them. I think Governor DeSantis overrode her to reopen them. Closing the parks and camping was a bad decision but the Governor got sucked up in the hype. Everything north of Orlando is very low risk. The Fed decision to close the Ocala National Forest was even dumber. It cost me one camping trip to the springs already.

As for Miami to Palm Beach, we almost never have any reason to go down there in the first place. The place is infested with NYC residents which is why they were hit so bad. Agree--- X3

RE: Opening of National Parks, Forests & State Parks

I'm still trying to figure out why the Ocala National Forest camping is closed until May 20. That county has little to no cases and there is very little development nearby. It's the Feds in control. Below is the blanket statement being issued nationwide by the US Forest and National Park services. "(Insert Entity) is following the White House’s guidance Opening Up America Again in developing a reopening plan. The park will implement phased reopening in accordance with this plan and guidance from public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control. There are no projected reopening dates for facilities or areas at this time." Rulle of thumb is that for federal campsites, declaration of opening is by agency and by region. State, county, regional and city parks will be based on local administration. What’s peculiar is my reservation is May 16, 4 days before the Reopen and they didn’t cancel me.

RE: Florida State Parks reservation question

Plasticmaster... If they cancel and any of your dates are in the cancel period the whole reservation will be cancelled. I found this out by calling a park I stay at often and spoke to a ranger I came to know. Your site as well as others would become available the day they are opening up. They would be up on RA prior to that date and you would need to keep checking.I had a friend get a week at a park starting on may 16 by doing this. My reservation through Rec.gov for the Ocala Nat For. starts in the closure period (closed until May 20 according to the website) but ends outside the closure period. They have not cancelled my reservation which is perplexing unless there is talk of opening back up before May 20.

RE: Selected Florida Parks re-open monday

To little to late. They should have done much more. It’s frustrating to us who are natives

RE: Vandalism in Death Valley -- the culprit has confessed

Numerous well thought out and considered suggestions for punishment. Get real. The guy's an idiot, but the punishment should fit the crime. The only things missing from above is the tar and feathers and crucifixion. Yeah, this whole country has went crazy. Make him pay for the clean up and let it go

RE: Engine torque

You will notice the difference. That V10 delivered max torque at just 3200 rpm’s.
