Welcome to the Team Ernest!
I live about sixty miles or so East of Oldsmar, Fl. Ransom Eli. Olds first and only rubber tree plantation that he bought and worked just after the turn of the last century in 1913 on his 37,541 acres estate on the northern tip of Tampa Bay. He had already produced the REO car and was going to grow the rubber to make the tires for it ride on. (Thomas Edison, George Firestone and other notables had residences on the southern shore of the bay )
