Sue---who is just happy that you're on the road!
It was 66 degrees here in Delaware today! Winter, we don't need no stinkin winter!

That is me in the pice but not my stream. It's Wally's gold one. I'd love to get my hands on it and fix it up. It's such a shame that it is wasting away in the mothership's parking lot.

66 I feel for you, that will be the low here tonight and it's predicted to be in the 80's for the rest of the week.

So we arrived safe and sound this afternoon just before 3:00PM in time to get set up and Larry the cable guy(not really him) showed up to connect the cable/internet.

On a side note stay away from Camping world in Jacksonville. I went there today to get the rig washed and was rudely told "ain't gonna happen". The lot is not RV friendly either. I pulled into the "RV" parking and needed a 35 point turn to get out again.

The KOA in St. Mary's GA was very nice. Beautiful park, easy to get in and out of, with free internet, cable TV and a free waffle breakfast too.

I'm in the Seasons In The Sun RV Resort in Mims Fl. It is very nice too but big. My little truck(F450) and little trailer (35ft) seemed small compared to some of the huge quad slide diesel pushers here.
My site is surrounded by palm trees all covered in spanish moss.
Tommorow I willl be checking out the whole park and it's amenities. Hopefully I can post some pices for all to see.

Sorry I forgot to mention that one. I stopped there too and although they weren't able to wash teh rig they were very polite about it. It is much easier to get in and out of and actually have real RV parking.

Oh yes, I've seen pics of it before. That is a shame. Kinda counter to their whole perfection in travel trailer thing. Must be the big brother Thor influence.

Some silver paint and you could just tell the world it's a Custom One-Off AS. Who would know ?????? We're heading for Fla in a couple weeks but will be moving around while there. Don't want any moss growing under our AS. Hoping to get out before winter decides to slam us.

Well it does have aluminium sides albeit they are painted white so I could always slap an Airstream sticker on it and tell people it's a Squarestream.

Some Pics

Sorry for the delay folks but I have been a little busy getting settled into the SOB.
Last night we went out to dinner in Cocoa Beach with some friends of mine who winter in Fla. Then we went for a walk on the beach and waded into the water, at 10:00PM it was still over 70 degrees. Walked around the tourist spots and saw the shark tank at Ron Jon's, a famous surf shop and beach outfitter shop.
Anyway here are a few shots of the trailer on site and some of my view from under the awning.

As to RV wash, try Blue Beacon Truck Wash. It would never occur to me to use CW for any service, much less washing. The truck guys might well get a kick out of your rig. Doesn't matter what it is if the owner is the sort to enjoy talking to service personnel and drivers. I use the cigarette-hanging-from-the-lower-lip trick, too, [as in above pic] when I want to be convincing. Pass a few around.

Enjoy your stay.

Chris, not only do you have an SOB, but you (and I and Rednax) are about the only people on the planet not watching the super bowl.

You need a bumper sticker saying "My Other Trailers are Airstreams".

Super bowl, whats a super bowl? Is it a really big place to put your salad? Oh yeah if I can remember correctly it has something to do with a sports game y'all play down here.

Funny you should mention a bumper sticker, i has though about something like: I rather be towing my Airstream

Actually it is a toilet that cleans itself.

I like that bumper sticker idea. Enjoy your time in the oppressive heat. We want more snow.
