The Everglades, Part 2: Collier Seminole & Monument Lake (again)

Collier-Seminole State Park After camping at Monument Lake for the first part of our stay in the Everglades, we headed towards Naples to Collier-Seminole State Park for a few days. It was only about 30 miles west and didn’t take any time at all to get there. After five days of dry camping, we were ready… Continue reading The Everglades, Part 2: Collier Seminole & Monument Lake (again)

Casino Camping and Monument Lake Campground in the Everglades

First Time Casino Camping After leaving the Florida Keys, finally, we enjoyed another first – casino camping! We heard from Brandon and Kerensa of Drive Dive Devour that the Miccosukee casino allowed RV overnights in their lot. Cool! It’s right on the corner of Krome Avenue and Tamiami Trail so convenient to our next destination.… Continue reading Casino Camping and Monument Lake Campground in the Everglades

Winter Holidays at Curry Hammock State Park

Our stay at Curry Hammock State Park lasted a good long stretch: from Christmas Eve Eve until January 4th. And we only had to move sites once! One of the benefits of staying at Curry Hammock is that it is a reasonable bike ride into Marathon. Key Largo, Key West, and Marathon are the closest… Continue reading Winter Holidays at Curry Hammock State Park

John Pennekamp – Kayaking, Cycling, and exploring Key Largo

After Bahia Honda, we headed to John Pennekamp State Park. But we stayed at Pennekamp twice with Curry Hammock in between. Our first visit to John Pennekamp we didn’t take advantage of the all the park has to offer. Kevin was sick a few days; we had work to do, stuff happens. We did better… Continue reading John Pennekamp – Kayaking, Cycling, and exploring Key Largo

Mobile Reception Where you won’t find a 4G signal at Bahia Honda Let’s start with where you can’t get it… Continue reading Pros and Cons of Bahia Honda State Park

A Relaxing Stay at Long Key State Park

December 1st we arrived and began camping at Long Key State Park in the Florida Keys. It was a bit of a haul from Savannas, though. We’re quickly learning that reasonable car trips can be taxing RV drives. As I’m writing this, we have now been to all of the Florida State Parks that allow… Continue reading A Relaxing Stay at Long Key State Park

Camping at Savannas Recreation Area

Kevin’s parents live on Hutchinson Island, so we planned to swing by there on the way south. It’s one of the reasons why we were in such a hurry when we were further north. We wanted to be able to spend a couple of days hanging out with them. There are some RV parks relatively… Continue reading Camping at Savannas Recreation Area

Two Florida RV Parks and A Vegan Meal

This is not the ideal way to RV, at least not for us. At this pace, we almost didn’t put the slides out. Almost. But traveling on a holiday weekend with no reservations, we took what we could get and moved on. Thankfully, we still got to enjoy each of the parks we visited. Kathryn… Continue reading Two Florida RV Parks and A Vegan Meal

Taking the Winnebago Out On Our First RV Trip

For our first RV trip, we didn’t get very far. But that was by design. Stone Mountain Park, east of Atlanta, is a mile from where we store the Winnebago. But we made the trip a bit longer because we went to fill up on propane – our first fill up! Even that only added… Continue reading Taking the Winnebago Out On Our First RV Trip
