There's no voodoo in Gainesville.

Are there any MeFites in Gainesville, FL?
The fact that it took a month before I saw an alligator in the wild nearly gave me a brain aneurysm, which is my third biggest fear, right behind crocodiles and my biggest fear of all: alligators.

How long will it take me to spy a wild MeFite here in Gainesville, FL? (Yes, that Gainesville.)

We're in FL, just north of Jacksonville (yes there is a bit of Florida north of Jacksonville and it is pretty lovely. We don't get your way much but I will say that I like the idea of more of us around these parts, even if only roughly so.

I'm in Jacksonville. Well, not at this very moment. Right now, I'm in Amsterdam with my family. But, you know, generally I'm in Jacksonville.

We are in Green Cove Springs, just south of Jacksonville and north of Palatka.
Maybe have a meetup in Palatka one weekend? I don't know Palatka at all well but Trip Advisor gives a good mark to The Magnolia Cafe.

I'd be down for a Palatka meetup! I don't really know that town besides the Ravines (which are awesome) but I've heard good things about Magnolia too.

I'd also be game to host or lead something here in St. Augustine if folks are interested.

I might attend a Jacksonville meetup, but that's about as far south as I would venture for a day trip.

I'm in Jacksonville, and would love a meetup before moving to the Pacific Northwest!

I live in Jax Beach specifically, the building that used to be Jax Beach City Hall. I also grew up here and have been an Airbnb host, so I know a fair bit about the history and sights. I'd be delighted to co-host or co-organize a gathering.

I'm in Jacksonville (Mandarin) and have family in Palatka. I'm down for a meetup anywhere between here and Tampa.
