Lake Nona resident since before it was Lake Nona, '82. I grew up playing on the dirt roads of Kirby Smith, and went to Oak Ridge High School, Class of '91. Got married in '94 and moved in "TOWN", Curryford and 436. We quickly realized this was not for us, though it was nice to have a pizza delivered or to grocery shop without a cooler. We moved to the Isle of Pines in '97 and refuse to leave. We have a grown son, that is moving out soon, but wants to move back to the Isle of Pines as soon as he can afford it. So it will be just my wife and I, and our corgis.
