Living the Life

It's been a bit cool for Florida, but pretty nice compared to New Hampshire. My lovely wife and I are enjoying the recreation area. We are seeing a lot of wildlife, everything from eagles to alligators. Just had a couple bundles of firewood delivered, so we are good for a nice campfire tonight.

We tried another Wise Company dehydrated dinner, an Alfredo noodle this time. It was pretty yummy. Hard to mess up noodles in a creamy sauce with a few spices. I'm not sure if I'll work my way though the bucket of Wise brand or open up the Mountain House to compare.

We were lucky to book some time at a little campground on Key Largo that we like. While it's a lot more expensive than living out in the National Forest, we will be ready for treat. Looking forward to being further south. It's on the water so we hope to do some paddling around the mangrove islands.

It's been a good trip so far -at least once we got down south. I think we made the right decision to leave the sailboat at home this year. Not towing it has allowed us to get into places we'd be unable to fit in with a trailer.

I've been giving some serious thought to what my lovely wife and I want to do in the future. As for myself, all I know is that I can't tolerate cold NH winters anymore. We are kicking around different camping ideas and different boating ideas. Of course, money is a factor, plus we have a house that needs some work when we get back. The ambulance/camper is running well, but it won't last forever. Not sure if we should drive it until the wheels fall off or sell it while it still runs well. Decisions, decisions.



  1. As you know, some folks live in a travel trailer all year. You'd have to keep a decent tow vehicle, but it's something to think about.

    1. All options are on the table at this point.

  2. hi hope this goes through, firefox says you are 'not secure' wish they would mind their own damned business, wonder what they are really after.
    keep notebook of impressions of meals and aftereffects. helps when deciding what to order next time.

    1. I'm keeping track. Just posting as I go along on the blog.
