Finished up our stay at Camp Mack RV Resort in Lake Wales Florida on Wednesday and pulled out to head back to Maryland due to Gwen having to have surgery. I will keep everyone posted on how she makes out. We had a great time and as always made some new friends to keep in touch with. When we left Camp Mack it was 85 degrees and when we arrived in Maryland it is in the 40's with 50 mph winds.
The first night back we made a stop at the Wal-Mart in Onley Virginia for the night and the winds where starting to pick up. Then we got a calll that told us the campground we where going to was closed due to the high winds and bad weather. So Today we pulled out to have the coach battery looked at . On the way there the winds where so high that it took off our slide out awning and almost took the Motor Home off the road it was blowing so hard that it put us in the other lane, there was nothing I could do but to hold on. Do not want to ever do that again.
Looking forward to getting back to Jane's Island State Park and seeing all our friends and getting some amazing Sea Food. But for now guess we have one or two days in the Wal-Mart parking lot until the weather clears up. Nothing else to do but eat ice cream and watch TV . Could be worse.

Our winter in South Central Florida has been a warm and sometimes hot for what we are used to but for the most part we have enjoyed it. We sre looking forward to having some cooler weather when we head back North. Looking forward to seeing all our friends and family.
As some of you might already know we are back in a motor home again. It happened fast and we had not planned on making the move, it just kinda happen after we had started looking for something different. The rest is a long and funny story that we post at later date but for now we have the motorhome and car to pull behind it..
We where able to unpack the 5th wheel and put everything in one of the maintenance bays and then park the motorhome at the door and start packing the motor home. It was a two day process and took some careful planning to find a spot for everything in the motorhome. It seemed like the 5th wheel had a little more cabinet space. But we managed to find a spot for everything. .

The weather here at Camp Mack has been really nice so far this winter. We are having a great time taking boat rides out on the Lakes and hanging out with friends.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we have not one but two dinners to attend so by the end of the day I am sure I will be ready far a long nap. Gwen is cooking again on Saturday so we will be doing it all over again. Not sure what it is this year but we are missing our kids and grand kids this year, guess it is because we have not been home for the Holidays in a lot time.
I still have not been able to get on a Air Boat ride but I still have plenty of time and we have been a little busy doing other things.
The weekends here at Camp Mack can be busy at time with the fishing tournaments going on and all the boaters coming out far a day on the Lake.

Month 1 has gone by fast here at Camp Mack in Lake Wales Fl. We did finally get our camper back after Camper World had it for 3 weeks doing repairs from a major tire blow out. Seems like they got everything fixed.
We are spending a lot of time down by the water watch the boats and alligators. The Air Boats look like a blast and hope to go on one before we leave.
We have a nice site with brick paver and nice and level. Just would to have a little more shade. There a lot of work camper in our loop so we are have a good time.
November and December it will get busy here with all the snow birds coming in for the winter and there will be a lot going on at the docks

We have been here at Camp Mack for almost a week and we are having a good time. We are still in the motel and waiting for our camper to be repaired at Campers World. They said it would be done to a week so we will see. Lot of damage from tire blow out.
On Saturday there was a fishing tournament and then a band played from 4:00 to 7:00. Everyone had a good time sitting by the docks and listen to the band and watching the air boats go by. We come drown to the docks every night and talk with the other work campers and guess and enjoy the fire pit.
There is a lot to do and see here with with all the air boats coming and going , the food trailer , pontoon boats and airboat rides and sitting on the docks and watching the Gators swimming by.
Phone service is poor in the campground and wifi is not much better. The is a few spots that we can manage to make a call or send a text. Will post to here and Facebook whenever possible.

Day two on the drive and we are having great weather and the leaves on the trees have stated to change already. The campground is full so we where lucky tp get a site for the week. We will be leaving next Friday. We have seen 3 bears already a mom and 2 baby cubs. Phone service on the mountain is spotty at best so will update as often as possible. For the next week it is just going to a lot of what we do best, eating and relaxing, and take lots of naps.

It is hard to believe that summer is coming to a end and that in a week we will be leaving Jane's Island State Park and headed to Skyline Drive VA. We are looking forward to spending a week in the mountains before going to Florida for the winter. We will miss going to Texas but will be able to get back there next winter.
I have just about got most of the little projects finished up that I wanted to get done. Have the new electric box wired up for the generator. Rewired bath room light for new LED . Lot better lighting then what we had before and now in the process of doing the rest of the light as soon as they get here. They where shipped out today. Will not take long once we receive then.

We had a great Labor Day Weekend and had plenty of things to keep us busy. On Sat the kids had a great time at the Crab Derby that is held every weekend . The kids always have a great time and for some it is the first time they have ever been crabbing.
We had planned on going back to Lake Corpus Christi in Texas but had to change our plans, more on the later. Looks like we will be headed to Skyline Drive VA. for about a week and then to Camp Mack in Lake Wales FL. for the winter months and then to Hamburg State Park Georgia. Having to stay on East Coast this year. We are looking for to Hosting in Georgia it will be the first time we have spend more than a few days in the state. We have not set a departure date yet but we should have one set in a week or so. Can not wait to spend some time in the mountains of Skyline Drive VA. We will post any updates as soon as we have them.

The park this time of year is usually close to being full and it keeps us busy. They try to have a lot of events for the kids on the weekends and we help out when ever we can. Most of the time we try to make the Crab Derby and Tie-Die, love watching the kids faces that is the best part of camping watching the kids having fun.
It will not be long before we start making our plans for the trip south for the winter. This summer seems to be going by faster than normal, guess that is because we are having so much fun. We are already starting to make our travel plans for next year looking for new places and new things to do. We are always on the lookout for some place new to visit.
