Like another poster mentioned the 10,000 Islands/Everglades National Park is a spot where you can go a few days to a week without seeing someone. But eventually you do see someone. Like many places on a good day you see more dolphin than people.
Also it is possible to "own" a piece of land in Florida
by squatting on it.
Just north of the National Park is Camp LuLu Key N25 50.163 W81 30.448. Until he passed in 2001, Mike used to "own" Camp LuLu. After living thier for 5 years and establishing a residence there, attempting to pay the taxes
on Camp LuLu, he had developed rights....... much to the chagrin of The State of Florida who actually owned the land. If you go to Google Earth
, you can still see the roof of the home he built, without the photo
Mike add a certain flair to the island. He was a retired airline pilot who was best described as he was a social hermit.
You were always welcome, especially if your brought chocolate or a GOOD cigar.
Bottom line, there are places you can go with limited access. Then again, I think Mike had it right with the whole "social hermit" perspective.
