For some reason I don't feel like vacationing in Florida this year.

Feel sorry but must I ask: Why are you living there knowingly that these (sinkholes) are common. Obsivouly it is not a good place of habitation. Yes these might be small sink holes but soon or later might evolve into larger sinkholes as the ground becomes more unstable due to these smaller sink holes opening up. Soon all the large area will simply fall into the ground.

:/ :shruggs: Your life.

It appears the search has been called off, so I guess that's his grave now. Poor chap. Jeez, 50-60 feet deep. :(
