    What's wrong? Didn't you know how to go beyond typical game coverage?

    I found greener pastures elsewhere, that's all.

    Lucky you, escaping Sebring is akin to escaping Lake Wales, oh wait, it's the same thing!

    Exactly. Not too much to Sebring, or Lake Wales. Lake Wales is prettier by far, with the hills and the old homes.
