Yes, great guy! I got to sit and chat a bit with Bob, OldCoot, and OldCoot's better half. I have to say- Bob and OldCoot gave me a call to harass me and it sounded like a couple of giddy school boys.

Anyway, I forgot to get a good pic. The site we were on was one of their recently upgraded sites (like opened 2 weeks ago), so it was a sandy mess. But, we were surrounded by Fulltime Families with a great field behind of us.

Yeah. We are about to endure "Florida Winter" again on Sunday where it'll be a high in the upper 50s for the day. It's a tough life.

Ependy, looks like someone backed past the hard surface into the sand...

Nothing fancy but was a great place to ring in the new year with friends:

Good eye, Gary. I sure did!

My wife doesn't get animated often when we're parking. But her instructions of "stop. Stop! STOP!" were well heard; I'm just a little slow.

Fortunately, I was able to pull back out without issue.

Hi,

Last year for this thread, I posted a picture of my rig beside a frozen lake, on the way to Gulf Shores from Northern Illinois.

This year, I'm settled in about five miles north of Quartzsite, in the Plomosa BLM area. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets seem to be the norm, along with much different weather.

Ok, sorta cheating here, but.... This technically is my campground.





Its our lots at the lake. The old KZ Sportsman in the back is sitting on my camper pad. Seeing how I have the cabin finished, I'll never bring the new camper down there, so we brought down Mikes (no_handle) father in laws camper. He had it at another location that was about 3 times as far from his house as our lake was. It sat unused for about 3 years as he never went down anymore. We cleaned it all up and got everything working again, hopefully it will get some use next year.

So next 3 threads from me are the past week on 3 separate sites. You may appreciate by the end that we are hoping that all the bad camping juju is over with for 2017 ...

Stop1: Collier Seminole State Park site 94 in Naples FL. Home of the entire population of mosquitoes for the winter (& we know how to battle those buggers really good). Kayaked out to marker 45 with someone not really aware of the tides so got a really good workout. Fish refused to bite. New bathhouse had to have septic truck visit twice daily, there was little hot water for a shower & the floor had been poured very badly so shower water remained in the center of the bathrooms on both sides. Had to use both AC & heat in just 4 night stay.
