Outdoor fan?

Sitting here in the heat at Paynes Prairie State Park in Florida, I'm wishing I had an oscillating fan. The outdoor TV mount would be a good place to hang it. Has anyone used that for something other than a TV?

I'm also thinking it would be good to have a mister attached to the front of the fan. It would really help cool the air under the awning.

No but I have been thinking the same as you. It can get unbearbly hot under the awning to the point that it is cooler in the sun than in the shade. I dont have an outdoor TV mount but I am thinking about getting a large pedestal fan to put on my deck to move the air a bit.

I bought a Stanley fan off of ebay. It is yellow and puts out a tremendous amount of air. I'm going to buy one more before the next trip to Rainbow Springs State Park.

We have been using a setup like this for a few years.
Just sits on the ground about 10 feet away.
Does not oscillate. We like it in the 100^ Texas heat.

We bought a pedestal mount misting, oscillating fan at WalMart last year.

Just connect it to a water hose.

What an excellent idea, we have an oscillating tower fan which would be perfect for this kind of setup.
Btw. we run for cover when the mercury hits 90 deg.

Check WalMart...that's exactly how our mister fan is set up.

WalMart had them for $89.00 about this time last year.

How is camping at Rainbow Springs? Is it shaded?

There's nowhere to run in Texas or Florida.
