When we winter in Florida, we prefer to escape the cramped RV park life, get out into nature, and enjoy ourselves. Since we are fully self contained, hold over 7 days of water, and have our RV solar system, it was time to see what we could do. Thanks to the SWFWMD and SFWMD, and
Deep Creek was a fairly nice place to stay, and was comparable to Oak Ridge and Cypress Creek. It had your standard amenities, including non-potable water, a port-o-john that was in need of a little more service (like a new floor) but usable and not disgusting, picnic tables, and fire rings. The park itself was
We couldn’t stay in Florida for a second winter and not go to the keys. Campgrounds in Key West are way more pricey than we pay, so we dropped the camper and took advantage of our van dwelling experience. We heard overnighting in Key West was difficult, and it’s true, but we managed to make

We changed locations a few times while there, staying in Callahan, Ocala, and Mayo at Suwannee River Rendezvous.
It’s not often, lately, we have a chance to relax and go sightseeing. But, when we have the chance, places like Juniper Springs make a great day trip. The first portion is a relaxing area where swimming is allowed in clear water that remains between 68 and 72 year round. At the far end, sits a mill house.
We have been living in our camper for a little over a year. While having all of luxuries of constant power and water is great, winter is rapidly approaching and it’s time to finally get ourselves and our camper on the road full time. Our first week out was more work than it was play
With the new bed modifications in our E-350, we were ready to set out on our next van camping adventure. This time, we were going north up interstate 95 to the D.C. area, from there we were not sure.
How touristy is it we took our first trip to the beach? Oh well, we needed a nice test run and the experience of pulling the camper and what better way than to use our home as our “motel” on our semi-annual beach trip. We set out with our trusty sidekick Gypsy and Laurie’s mom, making
