And then there's the exploding RV...

An RV exploded in a FL RV park due to the meth lab inside. Police on the scene smelled marijuana and found a pot farm inside another RV just 2 spaces away.

Now isn't that the park where you want to stay this winter?

I have always held that the best place to be when:

1: An RV Explodes

2: Police raid

3: Fire

4: Earthquake

5: Tornado or hurricane

7: 60 minutes camera crew shows up.

7 Other disaster happens.

Is..... ELSEWHERE!!!

Since the camp name wasn't mentioned I did a google on the story. Searching for RV meth lab gets a bunch of results. Guess we all better be careful about who we park next to.

Then you must have all your front teeth. Have you ever noticed the guy they always interview after a disaster is missing a front tooth, wears a baseball cap and uses the word "ain't"? Maybe he is the only one dumb enough to go on camera.

Hey Gray Ghost, I found it
Man Suffers Burns in Meth Lab Explosion; Grow House Found | TheLedger.com

If you think about it, an RV park is a good place to grow pot if the electricity is included in the lot rent. Those grow lights are energy hogs.

This happens in middle class neighborhoods as well. But having said that some "RV" parks are just permanent low-level housing. Florida's full of these, places most of us would NEVER consider staying at.

Looked up this "park" and it goes for $350/mo. Pretty cheap by FL standards. Gets what you pays for.
Wonder if Good Sam will have to revise the rating?
