You couldn't live in a better area for a TI.
You can reach 95% of the waterways with the TI. Don't forget it's probably one of the best and fastest kayaks on the market as well. Great for Santa Fe or crystal rivers and pretty much any of the springs. A lot of AI/TI's go down to ft desoto and Egmont key ( most of us launch at the public boat launch, unless we are camping, then we just launch from the campsite. We are a little south in sarasota and mostly stay around sarasota bay and ft desoto areas, but have been as far north as midiera beach and have gone to treasure island a few times.
We belong to the watertribe and the Hobie island club, they both are fun bunches of like people and get together often.
You will have fun
Yeah I can't wait to start exploring the springs. I grew up on the right coast so I've been to most of them in and around the Ocala national forest. Once I get the boat in going to check out the springs on the Suwannee and the panhandle springs.
