Yeah, when we moved to lady lake the villages was just a couple moderate sized trailer parks for 55+. Sure has changed a LOT in the last few decades.
I used to find some crazy stuff out there in the Shores... Behind the high school there was a HUGE abandoned development that was just a bunch of paved neighborhood roads with no cleared lots or houses. Just all the streets. That still out there?

What are your plans with the bus?
What's your background/skill set?

Hmm yea everything has changed so much in many places, but I'm unsure about the development to be honest. I used to go to the one behind Walmart on 40 to drift all the time, I wish I knew about that one
