RE: RVers and Pheasant hunting

I grew up hunting in SW Iowa where there were usually just 2 of us, and never more than 4 in the group. We moved to South Dakota where the terrain and size of the fields requires larger groups and different methods. Never quite got accustomed to it. Commercial hunting was becoming prominent when we moved back to Iowa 30 years ago, and I understand it's even more so now. Very difficult to find private land that hasn't been leased. My Brother and I along with a few other's used to hunt birds in Iowa every year... always the Friday after Opening Day. There were a group of farmers around Cosgrove who put on the hunt. Over the years we became very close with these gentlemen, and we could hunt the ground anytime we wanted.... however 2 things happened, Iowa had a drought, and the following year the bird-count was real low, and that seemed to happen about the same time we became old... LOL and just couldn't walk the distances we used too... We still hunt every Opening Day in Ohio, and always with Dogs! My brother had a good Britney, and I had a good Vizsla... We always had SD on our bucket-list, however I don't think we could justify the cost since we can't walk those distances anymore. Nice subject, I am enjoying reading all of the posts! RVman / John

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

We decided to make our typical reservations for Florida last year when we left, and we always leave Ohio in mid-January, so we have a little time yet, so We will make our decision at that time I guess? If I end up loosing my deposits and pre-payments... well I've wasted money before! hahaha... I just hope things settle down some in the next few months! Good Luck to everyone and Safe Travels!!!

RE: Traveling in Winter

We leave Ohio in January for Florida also... and pretty much do as everyone mentioned above, however we do use our 5th Wheel the entire trip. We watch the weather close before leaving to not run in snow or ice. We put a full day of driving the 1st day. We like above bring water with us for brushing teeth and coffee. We normally spend the night at a Flying J, which has RV designated parking areas. We heat with our propane furnace and sleep in the 5th Wheel. In the morning if temperatures are above 30, we will un-winterize that morning at the Flying J... they have freshwater, sewer dump and propane right there. Our 2nd night is normally fine temperature-wise... We have been doing this for over 20 years. RVman / John

RE: Campground around Winter Park, Florida

Twelve Oaks RV Resort in Sanford. Not fancy but nice people and convenient to everything. azwildcat, I need to check out Twelve Oaks, This past February we drove by this park, however there was so much construction on the highway if front of Twelve Oaks, I couldn't tell if it was closer, timewise... I will look at them when we are down there this coming January. I certainly don't need fancy, just clean & safe area is what we are looking for, plus a closer drive to and from our daughters house in Winter Park. Thanks for the suggestion! RVman / John

RE: Campground around Winter Park, Florida

Wekiva Springs SP might be a little closer but probably not enough to make any difference. Just too much traffic in the whole area. Thank you, I may check it out when I get down there... and boy you are right about the traffic! LOL

Campground around Winter Park, Florida

Our Daughter lives in Winter Park, Florida, and we always stay at Orange Blossom KOA in Apopka.... I was wondering is anyone would have a recommendation for a park closer to Winter Park? We spend at a minimum of 45 min each way driving to her house each day, so 1-1/2 hours round trip... We spend around 1 week in the area before heading to Ft. Myers.... We really don’t use the amenities, but certainly want a safe, clean park. Any suggestions anyone would have would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! RVman / John

RE: Magna Shade install

I bought the Mega Shade for our large back window, on our 5th Wheel... I am amazed of the difference it makes in tempreture. One of the best investments made for our 5th Wheel in my opinion. I Highly Recommend "Mega Shade" RVman / John
