Interesting, since you would not expect much large in those woods. Any evidence of bears around there? From what I know, they don't tend to be
noisy like that, but I could be mistaken.
Florida can be very creepy. My oldest lived in Land 'O Lakes some years back, and a bit away from most things. The woods out there were spooky at
times (and I love woods). She saw a cougar once. They had these HUGE freaky nasty spiders, too, way bigger than any are supposed to be there. I saw
one, on her wall, the size of a Correll sandwich plate. Heard other stories, of strange things in those swamps.
You know, your post reminded me of something else, from when we lived down there. We frequently visited friends that lived outside of Tampa, and
would drive home late at night on 75, then 275. There was this one place, along the highway, close to where the two joined, that was, well, weird.
Never saw anything, and were going too fast to, and too fast to simply stop, but it always felt like something was there. Same place, every time. I
tend to be able to know when animals are around, especially if they are near a road, and might cross. Deer, smaller stuff, cats more than most. This
was different. I don't know how to describe it, and yeah, I understand this is very subjective, and unprovable, but it was like something a little
dangerous, and smart. Not like people, though. Dangerous people have a different feel. Part of me wanted to check the area out, but most said, "NO
I would say, if anyone wanted to look for them down there, that might be a good lace to start. Southbound, just before 75 hits 275. To the right of
the interstate. Not sure how you would get to it, but something odd in that area.
