RE: Opinion on Resort fees

I don't understand the "resort Fee" and never heard of it. Our park here in the Keys charges over a hundred a night, (like all the others) but along with what you said we have a free boat ramp for renters and each spot is on a canal and each has a tiki hut dock. We also have two small sandy beaches. The things that you said were closed are probably the same as ours -closed due to the Covid. If you don't like the cost, you should use another place, but along the coast and the farther south you head you'll have trouble finding any thing less expensive GuySounds like you may be at Bluewater Key. Nope ! "Key Largo Kampground and Marina" -We have been all over the Keys and like this one the best. Check us out on line. If you are a kayaker, canoer or paddleboard paddler there are fifty miles of protected water ways in the mangrove gardens including the John Pennekamp state park canoe trails or you can paddle out to one of the reefs, (like "Mosquitoe Banks) for superb under sea viewing. If you are a power boater, the canal leads you right into the Atlantic or Largo sound Not only that, but we are only 40 minutes from The Everglades National Park. Guy We used to do the state parks; jumping from one to the other every two weeks, but now it is here in for the winter months

RE: Reminiscing

I was just sitting here Reminiscing about my life so far....wow what a ride! Strange how majority of life changing events were totally unplanned and yet all has been well. Experiences I never would have thought I would have, life episodes I never could have imagined, close calls that I came thru. I can't do much reminiscing any more since my memory is so bad, but I don't think a day goes by when I don't say to my wife of 63 years; "How lucky can two people be " Now when she starts talking about a years ago happening, trip or event, or some thing about one of the children, I have to tell little white lies and say- Oh yes, I remember that !

RE: Green Valve Stem Covers

I've aired down my tt tires at least a hundred times and then filled with Helium. I think I've got most of the old air out now because I had the trailer weighed and it's gone from over 7k lbs. down to just under 2k. I should now get about 150,000 miles out of a set of tires. On the other side of the coin, I run my pickup truck tires at 300 lbs each. That way in the winter I have 1200lbs total and the extra weight helps with traction on the snowy roads here in Western New York.;) Put some more helium in them, and you could end up with a radio controlled RV drone.

RE: Vaccinations

Up date on us oldsters. We got a call yesterday from our county health departement up in the NC mountains and we can get the vaccination today or tomorrow, (which is impossible since we are in Key largo, Fl) or we can get it next Wednesday or Thursday. We will be leaving here bright and early Monday morning with a one night stay in a motel and getting it Wednesday. Then we will repeat the trip to get the second shot. Our Stimulus check will pay for the motels and gas, (if we ever get it) I think some one here in Florida is pulling us senior's legs. For two weeks now they have been saying on TV that seniors 75 and over regardless where you are from can get the vaccination and here in the Florida county where I own property and pay the taxes, the county has everyone on hold.

RE: Travel trailer necessities

Along with some basic tools make sure you have two pairs of channel lock pliars (for connecting and disconnecting your water hose) I always had a pair of leather work glove for hitching and unhitching and handling the sway bar and load levers. Some rags for cleaning off your hose, and electrical cord before putting it away. Guy

RE: Just got back fro the local bike shop

Amazon or Ebay could be a option. As much as I buy through Amazon; on buying a high end road bike even if I had to pay more I would like to buy from a local shop. They take care of their customers and if something is wrong or needs adjusting, they will go out of their way to help. I have two picked out and in the cart on Amazon, but they will be my last resort Guy

RE: Trailer hitch pin

My worry has never been the hitch pin, but I always have worried about the safety pin that holds the hitch pin from sliding out. Guy

RE: What do you do?

Shoot the breeze! - as long as it is not about politics or religion. If it is just her and myself then politics and/or religion can be included We love to hash over the days adventure of paddleboarding, canoing, kayaking, hiking, or biking and then plan tomorrows Guy

RE: Chipmunks

Squirrels will get rid of chipmunks, get a squirrel. Nor where I live. We have two bird feeders hanging off our front porch and day after day I have watched chipmonks and squirrles feeding together on the gleanings on the ground that the birds kick out. Guy

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

I have a similar situation, but what I do is turn the main breaker off at the post/ panel and then remove the feeder cable and store it in the trailer compartment. ( It only takes a minute) That way I don't have to worry about someone coming by and turning on something in the trailer and the feeder cable is not left out in the weather elements Guy

Just got back fro the local bike shop

We were all ready to buy two new bikes and it was a no go! The owner said it is impossible to get any new ones from the manufacturers. We are hearing this from our local RV dealer as well as many hardware items. The government wants us to stimulate the economy, yet it seems there is a shortage of everything, so we can't. I reminds me of when I was a kid growing up during World War II Guy

RE: I Was Stimulated Today

We didn't get ours yet, but figured we would get two new road bikes when they come. Our mountain bikes are over the hill (no pun intended), and our good road bikes are up north at our sticks and breaks home That should help keep the local bike shop in business. Where were the handouts when we were young and needed them ? Guy

RE: RV parks Fort Lauderdale to Miami?

Try Miami Everglades RV resort on Quail Roost Drive Prior to snow birding we used to stay there a lot and liked it Guy

RE: FREE Wheel Chair LIft

A thought : I recently took the like new motorized stabilizers and their parts off my 37 foot trailer. I think they go about a thousand dollars. I hated to discard them and called the local RV dealer who has been good to us and is about two miles down the road and asked him if he wanted them. He took them and told me that any time I came in for propane to make sure and see him since it would be free. You might want to call the closest RV dealer before taking it to the land fill Guy

RE: Living in a Trailer

Most trailers are not built for full time living. It can be done but requires careful maintenance. If you already have a tow vehicle determine the maximum weight the TV will pull and carry. Buy something lighter however. If you don’t have a TV, buy or select the trailer first. Match a TV to the trailer. I completely disagree. We snow bird for six or seven months a year in our own lot in a upper scale park in Key Largo. There are some who live here year round in trailers and others like us that live for six or seven months. There is more maintenance and up keep on our summer home then our trailer Guy

RE: Living in a Trailer

That is a tough decision and my heart goes out to you. I am 85 and my wife is 83. I am hoping that I go before her since I couldn't imagine being without her, but if the opposite happened I think I would either live in a 25 foot travel trailer or buy a small ranch style home. As others have said; don't jump to anything too soon, but you could start down sizing little by little. Guy
