RE: Does size matter?

From my experience here in the state parks in the Florida Keys, no one pays any attention the length limits. It gets worse every year, and is now to the point where many of the big rigs have their vehicles jutting out into the road way, and none of the rangers seem to want to say anything about it. Jack L

RE: Newbie seller need help please!!

If I had a water damaged trailer that was bad enough for me to want to get rid of it, I would be happy to dump it for whatever I was offered. No one here can tell you without seeing the trailer - Roof ? walls ? floor? or all of the above? Jack L

RE: Your carrying capacity?

I carry two 18 foot kayaks and one 17 foot canoe on my truck roof when I am pulling my travel trailer to and from Florida while snow birding. Tell him to go on Paddling.Net and ask if anyone wants to make a few bucks by carrying it, and he should get some responses. Jack l

RE: Explanation works for me!

When my wife says remember when we did such and such, my reply is "was I having fun". She says "yes" - end of story! I don't have a clue what she wanted me to remember Jack L

RE: What is your favorite past time?

Hiking, biking and most of all paddling. My wife and I have altogether 16 kayaks and canoes. We not only explore with them, but also race and we are usually the oldest ones in most of the races. We have been to every off shore Key in the Florida Keys and have paddled all over Alaska. We now have a google web site for paddlers that list over a hundred good trips in Florida. If you want to see wildlife in it's own environment and explore places where no one else can get to, paddling is the way to go Jack L

RE: Tarpon Springs 55+ community nightmare

We are toying with someday when we are too old to pull our travel trailer of renting a place in the Keys for the winter, but there is no way I would rent something with out first seeing it. Jack L

RE: A request for cigarette smokers

I am absolutely amazed at the amount of rude replies here when the OP made a simple request to smokers. He didn't ask for your opinion. He just made a simple request. I am an ex smoker, and if when I was smoking I read this request, it would have made me think twice, and certainly try to be considerate. Jack L

RE: Good Sam Card/

We use it all the time and never have not been able to get the three cent per gallon discount. Put your regular credit card in the pump, and then you are prompted to put in any discount card,(like your good Sam card) We never have had a problem Jack L

RE: Should I Buy An Older Travel Trailer?

I think a lot depends on your size and your wifes size. We are on the smaller size. If you are large, you'll need a big trailer. We started with a 19 footer that had a queen bed, a dinette and a full bath. My wife likes to knit and sew and with just the dinette it was very hard for her (room size) so after six years we bought a new one with the exact same layout except it is a 25 footer and had a sofa. We winter in it for four months every year, and have had it for six years and are very happy with it. I will never have anything longer since this has all the space we need. If you had something similar, the sofa could be removed and a desk put in it's place. The other reasons I wouldn't want anything longer is the towing factor. 1. I can easily haul this with a regular eight cylinder pick up 2 Try to get in and out of a gas station with much longer and it is very tricky 3. Finding camping spots in state parks with any thing larger gets dicey Jack L

RE: John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

No don't go there. You won't like it. With that said, if you are a boater or kayaker it is a great place. We like it since it gives us lots of kayaking opportunities. There are very few places in the Keys where the snorkeling is good without taking a dive boat out to the various reefs. Jack L

RE: Humidity / Moisture Absorbers; Do They Work?

We use them, in our travel trailer in the summer months when it is not in use, (we are snow birds). They work good, but the draw back is they leave a nasty smell which takes a few days of using the trailer to get rid of. Jack L

RE: Camping in the Everglades in April

I just talked to the people at the campground at Collier-Seminole about the availability of sites after March 31 (all sites after that date are X-ed out). They said the campground will be closed to camping at that time for construction. So, I must chose another base. How is Koreshan SP? Looks like a good place to paddle on the Estero River. How long is the drive from Koreshan to Goodland? We have stayed at Koreshan. It is a nice park and you can get a couple of days paddle on the Estero and then some more in the bay Make sure you walk around the compound and see how self sufficient the Koreshans lived. It is very interesting Jack L

RE: Snowbirds - WHere are You Today?

Long Key State Park in the beautiful Florida Keys. Yesterday we circumnavigated the Key in our kayaks and today we paddled the interior of Boot Key in the mangrove tunnels. Mangrove tunnels are a blast once you learn how to do the kayak limbo! Jack L

RE: How Do You fill LP Tanks?

You take them out and bring them to any LP gas dealer. I keep mine upright and just use some bungees to keep them from tipping. Jack L

RE: Camping in the Everglades in April

Collier Seminole is now open again. If I were you I would make reservations now. We made them for two weeks in March. Once people know it has reopened, the reservations will go fast Any of the ones on the back left are large.(like 16, 17, 18, etc) Jack L

RE: Camping in the Everglades in April

My wife and I love the Everglades NP, and the 10,000 Islands For the Northern Everglades we always stay at Collier Seminole SP For the southern section we like Flamingo. Flamingo has some sites with electric, but none with water and sewer. There is water where you can fill your on board tank and there is a dump station. Long Pine Key has sites but without water, elec or sewer. Also if you want the southern end you can stay in a private place that is nice with full hook-ups in Homestead called Miami-Everglades Campground. If you want some good places to paddle in the Everglades, check out our google web site at; https://sites.google.com/site/flkeyskayaktrips/ Make sure to bring a Thermacell with you if you want to sit outside. The no-seeums and mosquitoes can be very bad

RE: Jack is too short

Doesn't have to be "red-necky" Do what I did. I made a solid box out of sturdy wood, and spray painted it gloss black. I also made four of them a little shorter for my stabilizers so the spread of the scissors wouldn't be so high and also painted them black. I have had a few people ask me where I bought them We use the Trailer four months every winter, so I give them a fresh coat of paint once a year. Jack L
