Getting Settled in Florida?

I'm back at the ETC. Got the following from a listener:

KMO, hi it's Dr B. I was wondering if you might have any thoughts about this situation or if you might be able to help. I have a friend who is moving to Jacksonville Fl to go to law school (to defend indigenous rights etc). He doesn't know anyone there. Apparently no one around here knows anyone there. (I'm thinking there's probably a reason for that). I was wondering if there are any C-realm listeners there who might be willing to help him a little - you know, like talk to him about where and where not to live and where the food coop store is, and where the eco-anarchists meet (ha) etc . I know its a long shot and don't feel bad if you can't help. I'm just sort of thrashing about here trying to help him. My only experience of Florida is limited to the Southern part which is apparently inhabited by wealthy retired accountants and their pastel wearing, gold chained bedecked wives. And then there's Disney world and Daytona beach. But fortunately I've managed to avoid all of that area for 56 years now. Really, I'm not sure why anyone like us would go to Florida, but whatever - that's where he got into law school. Any thoughts?

I would be happy to help
Hello KMO I've been listening to the podcast and following your stories for about 9 months now and I've finally decided to make contact. I must one of the few listeners you have in Florida and one of the few that frequents Jacksonville, FL. Currently, I live in Gainesville,FL which is 80 miles southeast of Jacksonville's downtown but I visit Jacksonville all the time.

It sounds like this gentleman is attending Jacksonville's Florida Coastal Law School. I have a friend who is a second year there and who is more familiar with places to live near campus than me. I'd be more than happy to get in contact with this gentleman it sound like we have many of the same interests. I created a live journal account this morning just to write this post, so i'm new. We can exchange contact information in whatever you think would be the safest way.

Hi D,

Thank you. I've made Dr. B aware of your response. If you contact me at kmo (at) c-realm (dot) com, I can forward your email to Dr. B and put the two of you in touch outside the fishbowl of my LiveJournal.

Thanks again, and stay well.

EDIT: Ah, I see that you've made me aware of your contact details. Please let me know if it is okay for me to share them with Dr. B.
