I had not planned on being here last night, but plans change sometimes. As I was standing underneath the overpass on a highway to catch a few minutes of shade, someone offered me a ride. I had planned on just going up to the next exit then heading west.
As he started down the road, he asked where I was going to stay the night. I said I planned on putting up my tent in the woods if I could find a good spot. When he mentioned Colquitt, I said yes, they have a WMA (Wildlife Management Area). I would have gone there but its about 30 miles out of my way.
Well… I ended up staying there anyway.
But it was awesome! The stars were beautiful on a clear cool night, I woke up to birds fluttering all around my tent, and scared the bageebies out of the alligator when I went to find a place to use the restroom.
