GPS has a field day deciphering directions in some places. Asked a mailman - they don't even deliver to some places, just use a mailbox bank on a paved road. For a guy like me looking for seclusion in the middle of civilization, it's great - but getting a pizza delivered may be a problem.

I feel your pain on this one. More than you could possibly know. While not an absolute, it does help to remember that generally ( CATs ) Courts, Avenues, and Terraces run north and south. All the rest run east and west. And yes, the 911 system should be shot for allowing this mess to continue. Also, generally speaking, Magnolia Ave and Ft. King are the quadrant dividers. Good luck.

From my experience, Pine (441/27/301) is the East/West division and Hwy 40 is the North/South division in Ocala.

I understand how you could think that. It took me a while to figure out. Check out a map of the downtown square area to zero in on the E/W division. Then check out Ft. King and the Boulevard out about SE 36 Ave.

This can be a bus system (city), or perhaps a shuttle-type bus service on a limited schedule.
Also, can someone tell me a little bit about the 55+ mobile home community called Golden Pond?
Any response would be appreciated. Thank You.
Golden Pond, a old established RV Resort isn't an RV community as such. It was at one time from what i understand. There are rental portable buildings, a mix of very old and newer RVs and an assortment of mobile homes. Some nice and some gone to seed. Some for sale or rent. There are two sections divided by a small sewer treatment plant and some woods. There are two ponds you cannot swim in. There is no pool. There are two clubhouses, one in each section. Everything there is a bit rustic. Worn. Tired looking. But the location is good with shopping close by and only about 15 minutes to Ocala. It's best to go look for yourself as the pictures CGs and Resorts have on their websites are often deceiving.

Thank you,

It's a small dusty tired poor little town but there are enough stores to keep you in food and clothing. The Villages aren't too far away. Off the main drag it's kind of quaint with a lot of older homes but there is nothing to do there other than go to the large Marion County flea market. There are several decent RV resorts there but check before making reservations as there are also a few really "rough" places most people would not want to stay in.
