Boondocking Reality #1

One must have water!   Part of boondocking (which is cheaper than upscale campgrounds) is giving up electricity and water.   Fortunately our campsite is near a water faucet. Jim came up with a clever way to funnel the water into the water inlet of the camper.  Jim figures that he carried 108 pounds of water on… Continue reading Boondocking Reality #1

A Boondocking We Will Go

After much preparation we are off to Juniper Springs and Alexander Springs for a much needed spring break. We will be practicing boondocking some more to prep us for the long summer trip.   We created checklist which should hopefully have prevented many forgotten items. Except for the tiny bungee cords to hold together the canoe… Continue reading A Boondocking We Will Go

Long Key State Park

We arrived at Long Key State Park mid afternoon on Tuesday.  Today is Friday and I’m wishing I never had to leave this park.  It is truly amazing.  Our camper butts right up to the water.  The water  is shallow for yards and yards out.  It is warm and clear and underneath is a world… Continue reading Long Key State Park
