Women Camping Fun

Women love to camp too. Most of us would rather camp in a recreational vehicle of some kind with a soft bed, bathroom and a shower. So long as you can get our home on wheels into whatever spot is available even in the middle of nowhere we would probably have a great time. There is something special about a miniature home on wheels that reflects our personality and has all the comforts of home. Yes, we can sit by the fire outside our little place, roast marshmallows over an open flame and drink a nice glass of wine while gazing at the stars. Then we can go into our abode grab a shower and hit the sack in an air conditioned space. Make sure we have electricity at the campsite or a very nice and quiet generator. Wait…that is what I like to do.

Sign Petition to Fully Fund Fl State Parks

Hey, guys our Florida State Parks budget is coming up soon and the monies are not nearly enough to help bring back all the state parks affected by the hurricanes the past couple of years. We need to tell the governor and representatives that we want our Florida State Parks and public land areas repaired, upgraded and fully-funded! There is a posting on Twitter and Facebook with a link to the petition and once signed gives you the contact information and a sample email to send to the Florida representatives.

What Is Up With This Weather

Seriously people living in an RV full-time you have to really be aware of the weather. Even in Florida this winter we have had some quite chilly days here lately. Yes, I know it is nothing like what is happening around the country and we are worried about our relatives in the severely hit areas but you don’t have a lot of protection in one of these little metal boxes on wheels. Sadly, we can’t just up and leave where we are because our engine is still blown and we have committed to staying here another couple of months.

Getting Ready for Active Summer of Bad Weather

For those of us sticking around this summer in sunny Florida and are Full-Time RVers we have to be prepared to bug out at a moments notice from any public land areas we happen to be volunteering in or just camping in. County, State and National Parks, Forests and Wildlife Refuges are required to evacuate any guests and personnel staying in the area during a major weather event. Now our normal summer storms don’t count and really only those “Named” storms are really required by some authorities as worthy of closing down services within the public lands themselves. Of course, once someone declares the on-coming storm as any level of a Hurricane you are going to relocate elsewhere anyway. Heavy Class A RVs are okay to stay in during a storm so long as you not under a canopy of trees. Both those thin walls travel trailers not so much.

Spring Cleaning Up

The RV and volunteer campsite needs to have its spring cleaning done on it. Living in one spot for any length of time and you will collect a variety of things in and around your RV and site. Your RV will also need to be washed up, the roof cleaned and made ready for an annual maintenance it will need and the tires checked to make sure there are no dry-rot spots. We also like to take everything out of the storage compartments, clean the boxes up and reorganize everything back into their various storage bags, boxes, etc. and throw away things we have collected but haven’t used in over a year.

Winter in North Florida

Winter in the north Florida area has roared in like a lion this month. Not only did we have snow in portions of this area earlier this month last night we got down in the teens here at our the county park where we are currently workamping. Most people come to Florida for warmer temperatures and our more than average nice weather when the snow is blowing a blizzard in the northern, central and western states this time of year.
