Bruced me, too.

Iron man is on Kelly Park Rd. My wife and I were heading to a party in Apopka last night when I told her about the iron man mystery. I told her I've been looking for it for the last three weeks. It wasn't out of my mouth for more than a minute when I happened to glance over and spy it. Freaked me out! I blasted over there early this morning to photo it.

Yes, I visited the airfield. There was no one there. Rode around some of the main roads and didn't see anyone.

The airfield was used during WWII but nothing is left of it but the open strip.

Oh...umm...maybe it was Kelly Park Road, Then?



My memory's not as good as it used to be.

I should probably start writing these things down.

I do remember that Brevard Lumber Company is on U.S. 1

And speaking of airfields, Southerland Strip is at the corner of N. Jungle and Fort Lane Roads.

Oh, and Sunrise Park South is on Riverside Drive near Holly Hill.

At least you got out to ride in this FANTASTIC weather!
