Equestrian Camping – Lake Panasoffkee, FL

So the wife and I traveled the long and arduous miles from Florida to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving last week. About 1600 miles one way, probably ended up at about 3500 miles of total driving during that week. That's a lot. We did, however, pay nothing in hotel costs. Our first day of travel was essentially just a night, where we traveled about four hours from

Cult of Florida :: The Koreshans of South Florida

Recently, the wife and I had an opportunity to take our Landwhale out to camp near Fort Myers, FL. We camped at Koreshan State Park, named as such due to the fact that it was the former homestead of the Koreshan Unity, founded by Cyrus Teed in 1903. The community itself was carved from the wildness of the Florida landscape at that time. They built

Exploring South Florida :: Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve

Last weekend, the wife and I visited the southwest corner of Florida to do a bit of exploring on that side of the state. It's less than a three hour drive, and with a campsite waiting for us there it's actually a pretty easy trip. We hit a bunch of spots, but we've always been a fan of parks and preserves. Especially those that don't

Summer Travels, Overgrown Landscaping, and Looking Forward

After some 30 hours of driving from Wisconsin to Florida, through wind and sun and heavy rain and avoiding a plethora of terrible drivers and not avoiding a lot of bad traffic, the wife and I arrived in Florida for our seasonal (August through May) escapades in the humid lands of the Florida peninsula. It's always a bit interesting to return to something familiar after

I’m Not Ragequitting…I’m Just Busy

With the price of steem hovering near a dollar, it's an easy thing for people to stop putting the work into steemit with the apparent value of the rewards so low. I know it's been almost a week since I've posted. I wish I could say I'm intentionally avoiding steemit, and no longer care about creating content. I wish I could say I was salty

RV Bathroom Remodel :: Part 4 :: The Final Part

Original bathroom, prior to doing anything in particular. One does not simply remodel a bathroom. It's a long, terrible journey filled with moistness, odd smells, and physical contortions heretofore previously unknown. I embarked on a remodel of my RV bathroom starting last month. Post one, two, and three offer more information than you care to know. The overall project was to replace the plastic toilet

Exploring Colorado :: Day 4 :: Denver Botanic Garden & Ending It All With Beer

My glorious little vacation to Colorado is soon coming to an end. We've left the Rocky Mountains west of Denver and are spending our last day in the city in order to be nearby for our ride to the airport the next morning. It's a Thursday, and we're expecting Friday traffic to be terrible. But for now, it's just me, my wife...and my mother-in-law. We've

Exploring Colorado :: Day 3 :: ‘Difficult’ Hiking to Hanging Lake, Glenwood Springs

So after a couple days of slow walking in a party with older folks, we managed to find a thing to do that they couldn't legitimately join us in. We had sturdy shoes, but it was a hot day. One can never have enough water, and we definitely did not bring enough. Hiking. On a trail marked as 'difficult'. The wife and I spent our

Exploring Colorado :: Day 1 Afternoon :: Betty Ford Alpine Gardon, Gondolas, and More

$39 PER PERSON to ride the Gondola to the top of Vail Mountain? What sort of drugs are you on? Does it come with a butler, open bar, and valet parking? Our intrepid party had planned to take the scenic gondola to the top of Vail Mountain, maybe do a bit of sightseeing or hiking on Tuesday afternoon. We arrived at the ticket booth around

Exploring Colorado :: Day 2 :: Vail Village

Nobody died during Day 1, but that was just the travel day. Now we have our full complement of old folks in our party, and it's not long before constitution and health levels are running low. I should have brought some health potions! For our plans today, I wanted to visit Vail. I've heard a lot about the ski village at the feet of Vail
