Where I'm staying has some huge street lights.

 

Looking for a place off a country road where I won't get accosted by police or dogs.

 

Let me know.

 

Thanks!

The Great Pee Dee Wildlife Refuge is just north of Florence. Perhaps you can find a secluded parking lot to observe from.

Appreciate the tip. I'll check it out.

I found a secluded church parking lot north of hartsville and just as I was getting out the neighbors giant dogs crashed through the bushes.

Probably friendly but I don't want to find out the hard way.

I'll check out north of Florence tonight.

Thanks!

I got a camping permit for a spot in the state forest.  It was perfect.  That will be my spot until I find something closer and free!
