The infamous stop sign jumper is in Florida on a family vacation, around the Orlando area. If you remember, Mark's van broke down last year and he had to buy a new one while on vacation (ouch) but no such drama is unfolding down there yet. On Tuesday, he rode 75 miles on a bike path and passed 7 snakes. He came up so rapidly on one large one that it coiled and showed it's fangs but missed Mark while attempting a strike. The humble Mark told me if that had been me, riding at my speed, I would have been bitten and eaten. Mark also said he wrestled an alligator or I thought that's what he said. Dangerous cycling down there. Mark got in a 50 mile ride and is going to get out tomorrow too. Sounds like mostly he is enduring family/relative time.
