RE: Tent Camping Forum

Hello everyone!Hopefully everyone is healthy. I did my trip to Florida, wonderful time. I loved Dickinson and rebooked the same site for next year. Also I am going back to St. Lucie South (booked a tent site again). Took a guided paddle trip on the river, visited lots of good restaurants, bowled as a guest in nearby leagues, took the dogs to a dog friendly beach. So much to do. One night it dropped into the thirties. My brother who lives nearby begged me bunk with him (I have two dogs so easier and more socially responsible to camp)but I had an electric heater and was very snug. Then off to the keys. Spent a week there. Probably would not have returned to keys but visited friends and that was nice. Went up the west coast and visited friends in Wimaumee. We visited the Ringling Museum. That was just such a surprise. All I can say is google it, its not just a circus museum. Finished off with a 6 day stay at Hilton Head in a waterfront resort (yes it was nice to have a bed and shower in one place!) One thing I noticed everywhere was an abundance of small camping units. Even among my generation. My neighbors in NH have a 40 foot motorhome. The wife wont drive it, its like an act of congress to get something fixed under warantee and they are trying to sell it after 3 years. Anyway I'm staying small. Had to retire my tent to the dumpster this year, got a great deal on a Eureka Copper Canyon. Already had it out to Lake George, NY! Off to Maidstone Lake next week! Happy Camping!

RE: Ceramic Heater Safety

A lot of campgrounds used to have rules about electric heaters for non metered people. But heck, an RV ac unit sucks power, they are 1/2 as efficient as a window unit. I used to use a window unit when I lived in Las Vegas. A 5000 BTU that drew 5 amps was as good as my rooftop that drew 13 amps. Anyhow now that campgrounds want $60 - 80/ night well who cares?

RE: Tent Camping Forum

I am heading to Florida in January. I will camp at Johnathan Dickson for 10 days, on the canal at St Lucie for ten days(have never been able to get an rv site there but tent sites are easier to book). I park a small cargo trailer across from my site that has solar power and will set up a tent on the site. I will spend a few days on the keys visiting old friends and head north to the National Forest campgrounds with the springs. I like wandering about, meeting different folks, enjoying different areas. My friends do long term rentals and seem happy but I am not that sedate yet! The cargo trailer is modest, inexpensive and easy to tow. It has the comfort of a bed for short stays, solar power for frig, chargers,fan. Rough in cold weather if no shore power available but there are hotels in that case! I like to wind down at Hilton Head in an efficiency apartment on the way north. Tenting makes a long trip doable! Happy Holidays Everyone!
