Apr 7, 2017 - Lake Mantee State Park

We like the Geocaching event at Lake Manatee state park. There is trails to walk and geocaches on the trails to locate. Then in afternoon we had hot dogs to eat for free if you bring a side dish. At these event they place on the trails containers for us to locate, can not be in the ground, but can be in a hole in a tree or behind a tree. You have the coords for the container and you have to locate the container, sign the log sheet and replace the container for other people to find. Then that night you can go on the web site to sign in for...

We had fun at the meet and greet on Friday night and the Trivia night was a hoot along with the chimney campfire ring show.

Apr 1, 2012 - On the Road Again!!

Well, here we are again. Had a good winter in Florida, took a couple of cruises, got together with friends from Ocala to Punta Gorda through out the winter and picked lots of strawberries from Dec to March with the help from very dedicated friends. ( the neighbors sure loved our efforts) In January, we decided to put the house up for sale as we are just not there enough to justify having it. Lots of lookers but no one serious until the last week of March. As we were packing up anyway, we had to really get serious with only 3 days left and...

Oct 28, 2010 - Ellenton, FL

Arrived back home yesterday around noon. Needed the air on in the MH while we unpacked as the temps were in the 90's. Found everything was OK in the house but the gardens got a little overgrown with weeds. Guess we'll have to pay someone to keep them up while we're gone next time, the neighbors will appreciate that for sure. Well this concludes our adventure for now traveling over 6,000 miles in 6 weeks, sure glad to share it with you. Have a great winter.
