RE: FL Keys w kids and boat

The state parks are really nice......but, hard to get into! Do to the above, this time we are staying at Jolly Roger ( next week). It has good reviews and a poster from here recommends it. If you can wait a week, I will post my thoughts on the place. Again, I prefer SPs but this place looks nice. My review may be through several mixed drinks though....LOL. We have been to both Jolly Roger and Key Largo Kampground and like Key Largo better. Jolly Roger is on Florida Bay, and Key Largo the Atlantic Jack L

RE: FL Keys w kids and boat

John Pennekamp and Bahia Honda state parks have free boat dockage (limited number of spaces) for campers, along with good ramps. Key Largo campground has some really shallow areas you have to go through, before getting to deeper water. Not true There is channel all the way out, unless you have the Queen Mary The channel is clearly marked with red and green markers. We just came from there. Off to the right of the channel as you are heading out there is a shallow area and off limits to motorized craft Jack L

RE: FL Keys w kids and boat

They also have pull through sites and there is a boat ramp They are on the Atlantic side and have two beaches, a beautiful pool, playground and other amenities We have stayed there several times and love it Jack L

RE: How do I check caulking where roof meets sidewalls?????

Eternabond is easy to work with as long as you plan for its EXTREME stickiness. Just peel the backing off in small increments as you go. It sure simplified my inspection and maintenance process. I like your trailer, TV and canoe. We had a Pioneeer 18, a Silver Ford F-150 with a cap on the back and not only carried a canoe on the roof, but two long sea kayaks , (one on each side of the canoe) Now we have a Pioneer 25 and a Dodge Ram with still the same three boats Jack L

RE: How do I check caulking where roof meets sidewalls?????

Should one check the side of the roofs during normal maintence? if so, how is this done? is this a normal leak place? im not a very handy person, dicor is easy to use, would i be getting over my head with the Tape? Self leveling Dicor is easy to use on a flat surface such as around roof vents, etc. But I will never use the non self leveling Dicor again on a vertical surface such as around windows or side vents. It makes one big sticky mess and is next to impossible to get smooth. I switched to regular bathtub calk, and it does a much better job as far as I am concerned. If you have a well made trailer, you shouldn't have to worry about where the roof wraps over the sides, front or back. Just give it a visual inspection for any tears or breaks. Jack L

RE: RV parks without park models that rent space?

Key Largo Kampground in Key Largo Florida Has a mixture of both and is a real nice gaited place. It has two small sandy beaches, and a large pool. You can rent a spot on their canal with your own Tiki Hut or a inner one for less money Jack L

RE: Southern FL tent camping

If he can forgo the beach, I would second the Everglades National Park. The Southern end has Long Pine Campground with no hook ups and then in Flamingo he can camp right on the grass along a rocky beach plus they also have a campground. At Flamingo he can rent kayaks and canoes, and there are good hiking trails. If he goes there tell him to bring a Thermacell or plenty of DEET It has been very hot here in the Everglades and the Keys. (83 yesterday) Jack L

RE: A good snow birding RV Park

We just left Key Largo Campground in the Florida Keys, and I highly recommend it for those of you looking to snow bird next season. It has two sandy beaches, a pool, club house, boat ramp into a canal that leads to Largo Sound and the Atlantic, and the people are very friendly. We were in a pull through that made for easy in and out. Guy For what it is worth It is Key Largo Kampground with a "K" and we like it to Jack L

RE: Recommendations for ocean water kayaks

What is your experience with kayaks. If you are a newbie just get either a tandem el cheapo or two singles el cheapo. You can always up grade later if you get hooked. Regardless of what people say about tandems being "divorce boats" if you and your partner are compatable a tandem might be good for you. It is the stern paddlers responsibility to stay in sync with the bow paddlers stroke. The bow paddler can't see the stern paddler. If you keep that in mind, a tandem would be Ok. Next will you be paddling all year round, sit on tops (SOT's) would be good. If you will be paddling in cold weather as well as warm, get Sit in kayaks, (SINKS) Next -Plastic is the cheapest, but are heavy and slow. Composites such as fiberglass or carbon fibre are lighter and faster, but cost the big bucks. Next -The short boats are slow, the longer the boat and narrower it is the faster it is, but also they are more tippy. If you have more questions, go onto "Paddling. Net" and ask under the "Questions and advice forum" You'll get a lot of good advice there jack L

RE: Best way to combat mosquitos

Get a Thermacell. It is the only way to go. You can get them at Walmart, Dicks Sporting goods and Home Depot. They absolutely work great jack L

RE: hooking up a travel trailer

No one has mentioned it yet, but the heaviest thing will be your hitch. Picking it up and putting it in the receiver will be the heaviest thing you have to do What you should do , is go to a dealer and ask if you can pick one up and carry it around or even put one in your vehicle receiver. All of the rest should be no problem jack L

RE: Bahia Honda Bridge is Closed

We also was there last May. It did not appear to be unsafe to me. What happened to it? If you were to go under it in a boat last may and took a look at all the rusted pieces that are hanging off it and falling into the water almost on a daily basis, you would realize that it was just as dangerous. There have been signs for a long time warning the boaters how dangerous it is. Next time you go over the seven mile bridge take a look over at the old RR bridge, and you'll see the same thing. Jack L

RE: Is a freshwater tank necessary if not traveling?

If you will be winterizing in the winter, the pump is necessary for pumping the pink stuff, but if you will never be using the on board water tank, there is absolutely no need to keep the tank. Jack L

RE: Bahia Honda Bridge is Closed

I wonder if this will have an effect on the reservations for Bahia Honda. I don't think they will go empty, but I wonder how much easier it may be able to get reservations.....never been there before. Was able to score a couple nights in July. It won't be any easier ! Trust me on that. Jack L

RE: Bahia Honda Bridge is Closed

Not quite the same, but; On a sunny day when the wind is calm walk under the Rt 1 bridge and over to where the cabins are. Then walk a another fifty or sixty feet to the broken concrete wall and look over right in close to the wall. You'll see lots of small tropical fish including several species of Parrot fish, Sargent majors and lots of Mangroves Snappers. They are there every day We saw an Angel fish there too. Jack L

RE: Everglades

If you are a nature lover, a paddler, a hiker or a biker you can spend as much time as you want. We love it and spend two weeks every winter there. Make sure to have a thermocell with you or some deet Just don't go in the summer. jack L

RE: Holding Tanks Size, what to look for?

For what it is worth: We snow bird and are two weeks at a time at one state park We have a 40 gallon black and a 40 gallon gray. The 40 gallon black will be good for two weeks with just my wife using it and me using the parks facility. For one week it is good for both of us. On the gray we both use the parks shower facility and then the last few days use our own shower, and also dump the dish washing into it and it will fill up in just a few days. Lots of time I use the blue boy for carrying the gray so we can take showers in our own bath room. Jack L I would hate to just have a 26 gallon black and gray
