Camping at Lake Panasoffkee, Wildwood, Florida

Camping at Lake Panasoffkee, Wildwood, Florida

Lake Panasoffkee Preserve features a camp host, who maintains the property and checks reservations as visitors arrive to the camping areas. Once settled in, our stay was pleasant and uneventful – just like we like it. For those who need them, shopping areas like those in Ocala, Wildwood, and The Villages are a short 20-30

Replacing An RV Entry Door Holder Catch With Metal! No more stretched out or broken door holders!

Replacing An RV Entry Door Holder Catch With Metal! No more stretched out or broken door holders!

  Let’s face it most RV parts are made of cheap plastic. More than likely you will keep your rv for much longer than the life of many of those cheap plastic parts. Once a part has worn out you have two options. Replace it with the exact same part and hope it doesn’t break

Free Florida Boondocking

Free Florida Boondocking

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 Preserve, Arcadia, Florida

Deep Creek Preserve, Arcadia, Florida

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

Hickory Hammock Equestrian Area

Hickory Hammock Equestrian Area

Out of the free management lands we have stayed on in Florida, Hickory Hammock is by far the nicest so far. When we first arrived, a sign directed us to check in with the camp host who was unavailable at the time. A neighbor, however, verified we had a reservation and gave us a rundown

Oak Ridge, Upper Hillsborough

Oak Ridge, Upper Hillsborough

Our group from Alston Tract arranged to all sync our travels and, for our third Florida wild camping location, Laurie and I met them at Oak Ridge. We left Cypress Creek to arrive a few days after the rest of the group. There were about six camping spots, split through the middle with the driving

Internet On The Go – Our Test of Wal-Mart’s Pay-as-you-go Internet Hotspot

Traveling to the middle of nowhere and neading reliable internet has us always keeping an eye out for options. We decided to try Internet On The Go, a pay as you go plan from Wal-Mart, which uses Sprint’s network. The never expiring, as long as you use some data in a certain time frame, seemed

Cypress Creek Preserve

Cypress Creek Preserve

Our second Florida boondocking location for the winter was Cypress Creek Preserve. When we arrived, we were the only campers in the area – which is always a plus. Our fist thought was that the large Palmetto Bushes provided a nice seclusion that was lacking at Alston Tract. Once we chose our spot, at the

Our Stay at Alston Tract, Crystal Springs, Florida

Our first Florida Boondocking adventure on SWFWMD public land started at Alston Tract. When we arrived, we were the only campers at the location. Alston Tract is very well maintained. The port-o-john was clean and filled with fresh blue-stuff, there was no sign of trash, fire pits were clean and empty, and the area was
