I had to look up where Withlacoochee was, I must be slipping. But I've been to Torreya. Does that count?

I, along with some other squids, were on a bus in Italy going to meet our ship. Two of them were gawking in amazement at the "mountains" we were driving through -- I wanted to see these huge mountains so I was looking as well but I didn't see any. I asked them where they were from and they replied, "Florida!" and aside from bootcamp they had never been out of the state. Being from Oregon that explained why the foothills we were winding through appeared so big to them.

Thank goodness for the military or some people would never get out and see this beautiful world we live on.

My Florida experiences: I got my first half PADI qualifications in Ichetucknee Springs. Got alcohol poisoning in Ft. Lauderdale during Spring Break when our ship pulled in after doing drug operations support with the Coast Guard.
