Calm Before the Storm
My lovely wife and I had a rainy night in the St. Augustine Florida area. It rained heavily. Our tent held up well and we only had a bit of ground seepage. L. L. Bean makes good tents.
However, it’s going to be put the test sometime during the night and early morning. We’ve been warned that a line of thunderstorms is moving in. 60 mph winds are expected. Currently we are in a Federal campground in the Ocala.
I put down extra stakes and lines. Hopefully that’ll keep the tent on the ground. This is going to be a real test. While the sky is currently clear, the dog is worried. She feels something coming.
We were warned that cell phone connection is pretty bad here. My cell phone isn’t cutting it. However, the hotspot device puts out a stronger single. That’s how I’m able to get this blog post out.
Our plans are to stay here for a week. We stocked up on provisions before coming out to the forest. There is a store not that far away but last time we looked at some bacon that was many months out of datee. We don’t shop there for perishables.
Once the weather clears we hope to launch the sailboat on the St. John and check out Lake George.
My lovely wife and I are really starting to settle in after our stressful trip down.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
