Update: Salt Springs and Cedar Key -- 2/22/19

We've been staying at the Salt Springs Recreation Area in Ocala National Forest. The actual springs (pictured) allow swimming in water that is a constant 72F year-round.



The grounds and buildings are immaculately kept with neat trails and walkways. The camping facilities are superb and the staff is friendly and helpful. Campsites...

Help! Buying our first RV - Class C

Posted 02-19-2019 at 10:32 AM by kenandrea

We are looking at a 2018 Forest River Forester 3011DS with full body paint and some other nice options but are a bit concerned that it has been hanging out at the dealership since new and is essentially 2 years old now. Hard to figure out what a reasonable price is as well.
Any thoughts on this model, pricing and buying new "last year's models" at a dealer?

Update: The Not Forgotten Coast -- 2/19/19

Traveling from Pensacola to Salt Springs, we decided to drive the Forgotten Coast Highway, Florida 98, to see for ourselves what that part of the world looks like.



I realized that we would also bear witness to the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. We both grew up in the heartland's Tornado Alley, but nothing could prepare us for the devastation...

Update: Fort Pickens & Food -- 2/15/19

We toured the well-preserved ruins at Fort Pickens today, just a stone's throw from our campsite.



What remains of the fort is still a very impressive edifice - the largest coastal defense fort in the US arsenal. It was built brick by brick in the 1830's using slave labor, and alternately held by both Union and Confederate forces during...

Update: We Found Florida -- 2/8/19

We made it to Fort Pickens just outside Pensacola Beach, and it's 70F. It is truly amazing what a 95 degree temperature increase will do for one's general disposition. And fresh seafood.



Speaking of amazing seafood, if you're ever in the Pensacola area, you have to try the fabulous fare at Joe Patti's. The seafood gumbo is divine, the prices...

Update: Digging Out & Loading -- 2/1/19

Our planned departure for the Florida Panhandle is tomorrow, and it hit a balmy 10F today, so I went to the storage yard and discovered they had plowed in the NewAire.



I expected a bit of shoveling, but nothing like what I encountered. So I bit the bullet, dug her out, got the generator fired up, and I'm heating the engine block as...
