Headed for Florida

The winter sucks in Chicago. On Friday, we are taking our Bigfoot Silver Cloud out to a new campground in Naples, FL for our Xmas vacation. We have gone to Naples KOA for several years, but the noseeums eat me alive, and since the campground is next to a sanctuary, no spraying. Hopefully, there are not so many in this new campground.

Here are a few of our camping buddies and our camper. Off to get some warmth!

Be prepared for extra insects this year. More than normal due to the hurricane and subsequent very mild and damp weather.

I can't wait to hear about the new campground!

It was 91 deg. F. yesterday in Ft. Myers yesterday. It was 130 deg. F. difference in the feel like temp. between there and some place in MN. yesterday. Make sure your trailer A/C is working.

We are a little northeast of Naples, saw 101 on our outside thermometer yesterday. Swatting mosquitoes right now, INSIDE our trailer. Heard the red tide is on the west coast now.

What a wonderful idea . This is a beautiful time of the year in the North
Cross country skiing, ice fishing , snowmobiling , snow shoeing , outdoor skating , sledding , snowmobile races on open water , Northern Lights and lots more . Beautiful weather , bright sunshine and no bugs

St. Paul Mn has it's annual winter carnival in January , it's worth the trip alone.
If nature doesn't supply enough snow , don't worry , we know how to make more.

Thanks. Just needs new stickers now. Oh, and a few of the lights still need the Oregon moss cleaned out.

Thanks, gypsy. I have done this year after year. Every time we go to FL, we spend a lot of time trying to find relief for me. Hopefully, changing the campground will help. It is away from the water.

"Be prepared for extra insects this year. More than normal due to the hurricane and subsequent very mild and damp weather. "


My parents live in Naples and were complaining(yesterday) that it has not rained once, since they got there on Oct.11. And they did say it has been hot.
There are always bugs, since it is so tropical. They used to spray there with a DC3 and it would throw me out of bed every time it went over at 4-5 am. I never did get used to that.

My food recommendations;Breakfast at the Cove Inn coffee shop-get the pancakes (oh my-heaven) and I pay the up charge for real maple syrup.
Lunch- take out from Pastrami Dan's A bit salty for me, but I still want one.
Dinner-Alice Sweetwaters for lobster bisque. The Dock-always good. Naples on the Bay Pizza for their margherita pizza (authentic, heavenly, $25 expensive but worth it to me). Bad Ass coffee in the evening to watch people or just go for a walk. If there in the am- get a toasted croissant. No, cancel that, they only get 2 per day and you might beat me there !

Let me know your recommendations, I am sure there are many places I have missed.

Tom and Peg.. We will be there in Jan for a month, but store our egg for our stay. But hope to take a 3 week trip home going up the coast.
