Crazy boat option
My lovely wife and I have a couple more days in the campground in Key Largo. After that, who knows? The Keys are booked solid. In fact, the site next to us was double booked. However, I keep checking for last minute cancellations. Last year we put together a week of camping in the Keys that way, but it's tighter this year. Maybe it's the low price of gas or the snow up north, or both.
We do have one crazy option. We could go stay in a marina in the 12 foot boat. Today my lovely wife and I tried to see if we could both fit in the cabin. We totally can, and it's not too bad. She laid down some 2'X2' foam floor pads and it's pretty comfortable. If we put our self inflating camping pad on that it would be really comfy. Considering marinas charge by the foot, it might be worth it.
Flamingo has openings, but that's because the mosquitoes at night are down right evil. It's not bad during the day, but as soon as the sun comes down, you can hear the buzzing. They come in needle first like darts. However, we just fitted a no-see-um netting in the back of the van. With a fan going it's very pleasant. I like Flaiming more than my lovely wife does, so we'll see what happens.
There are other options a bit further upstate, so we'll find something.
