My Go Bag is the MH, it's always ready to evacuate. Thankfully, for us, this one is on the other side of the state.

Thatís what I thought in 2005 when Wilma hit, coming from the Gulf Coast. It swept right across the peninsula and slammed us on the east coast. In addition to damage, some folks had no power for weeks.

Coming back from a camping trip today, I stopped to top off both the fuel and LP tanks, so we're ready for when the power goes out (it WILL go out if the storm gets anywhere near us in Jacksonville).
I was just out standing on the other side of the street studying my next door neighbor's big tree, trying to decide how far into my driveway it would fall IF it fell that direction. Looks like I need to move the RV to the far side of the drive for the most safety.

Coach is stocked and tanks are full. I can have perishables and clothes loaded in the time it takes Rick to close our shutters. Our S&B has lots of long term storage food, water and that generator is ready. 20+ years of living in Florida and a little OCD...we tend to be ready by the start of storm season.

Been there as well. Bought fresh gas for the generator today, checked that hurricane shutters are working and filled the 5 gallon water bottles. Evening news is saying it could come across closer to us, but still to soon to tell. Be safe over on your coast.

Watching the computer models... They are in almost perfect agreement to the 75th parallel... That's not a great thing, that puts it on an almost direct aim (for the center) with Daytona / Canaveral right now. The track after that is still in flux, and where my RV is stored just north of Jax in Georgia (within sight of the border) is too close for comfort for me. There's also a line of giant pine trees right behind the yard.

I'm going up there Friday most likely to move it out of the way of the storm. If anyone wants to come visit... You can find me at the Pilot station at I-75 and I-10.

It's times like this that I'm glad I live in the scrotum part of the state.

Yep, it changed again and we still have 5 more days of changes. The Nat. Hurricane Center has impact in the Melborne area crossing north of Tampa. They won't know until they know. A lot of people need to be prepared as it is not going up the east coast as first predicted.

North of Tampa would be us. 3 coaches here. Will be filling water tanks for us and a large water tote for horse. Should be interesting.

I have the unfortunate luck to to be taking delivery of my 2016 30' Coachman Freelander today. :(



Is there any preferred direction to park my unit on property to better handle the winds?

been living in south Florida for 20 years. Classical problem...go north...or south. Too soon to tell but if the current track holds I would go south. Will no more in 48 hours.

I have hidden behind brick buildings, but into the wind is the direction to go if you have room. Any RV can handle 70 or 80 or more in the normal driving direction. However, I have seen a lot of lighting equipment fall, so watch out for that as well.
