Day 4 is Dedicated to Engineer Mark Kelsey
Day 4 started at 8:00 am with a ride out of Winter Haven after thanking our hosts the Elks Lodge. Day 4 was a long day in the hills of Ocala National Forest. We again had wonderful support from both fire and EMS support personel along the route. This included water rest stops and escorts to Palatka.
Before we arrived in Palatka we were staged at Palatka fire station 2 were we were greated by Chief Randy Porter. While waiting for our arrival at the elks lodge we were able to use Palatka’s new tower truck to take the picture at left in respect to the charleston 9.
Upon arrival in Paltka we were met by the Mayor, Vice Mayor, City Manager and all the representivies of the public service agencies.
We were treated to supper by the Elks lodge and then spent the night in the National Guard Armory.
