Pa guy goin riding

Hello. I am going for a little ride and will be down your way for a day. The one thing we wanted to do when we are down south is to see a gator in the wild. Does anyone know of any state parks that the gators are abundant? Also any tips on nice roads would be nice.
Thanks
Frank

Worked in Lancaster for PPL

Hi Frank_S.
I worked in Lancaster on Delp Road for PPL before I retired here to SC last year. Live in west central SC, not far from Augusta, GA. Seen lots of wild turkeys (The National Wild Turkey Federation has a neat museum in Edgefield, SC on US Route 25). Also seen lots of deer (LOT SMALLER than the ones in PA!!). Haven't seen any gators in the wild here, but the local newspaper had some photos of a small one in a lake near here.

Good luck on the "wild beast hunt", and ride safe!

My father in law works for PPL I am hoping with the heat today they shut my work down (RR Donnelly printing ) and I can go riding.
