We're on the barrier island in NSB FL.

Taking our bambi with us ~ 5 miles inland tucking it against my inlaws house where hopefully it will be sheltered from the North wind we're expecting.

Spent the last 24hrs boarding up houses and my office building.

Do not test your luck with this storm. If you're anywhere near the Atlantic coast of FL, GA, SC and maybe even NC, the time to hitch up your Airsteam and move is *right now*.

Here's an example of a forecast for Miami in FL. Note how strongly they urge you to ignore the forecast cone and the boundaries of that cone when deciding what to do. http://www.weather.gov/mfl/

Again, I urge you - do not test your luck. Your Airstream is a travel trailer, so now's the time to travel.

Best wishes, be safe, dry and warm.

Happy to report I'm tucked into my space at Lake Manatee SP. There is now a Mandatory Evacuation in Brevard Couinty with winds of 110 mph expected in Melbourne Thursday nite. Sure am glad I decided to leave.

Knoxville -- Chattanooga -- Atlanta would be a little shorter maybe, but possibly closer to Matthew if the storm tracks more westward.

Going over the Appalachians via Asheville might be a problem . . .

Orlando by Monday afternoon should be no prob, again IMO, although Maggie raises a good point about the condition of roads etc. as you approach Orlando.

Have fun!

Peter

PS -- The links in Post #3 permit you to monitor the storm while you are on the road, without needing television.
Our route is an Installation rally at Paintsville Lake in KY on Thursday, Friday is travel to Jonesboro, GA to visit the in-laws until Sunday morning. Sunday we are supposed to stay at Reed Bingham SP near Adel, GA and Monday morning heading towards Orlando. At this point I am preparing myself for long traffic jams on I-75 due to Florida folks heading back home. Hoping the worst is over by Monday.

I think they have mandatory evacuations going on at Myrtle Beach, SC. When is the last time Ocean Lakes Campground looked like this?

I would be in no hurry to get back down to Orlando and points East & South after the storm, as they will likely be cleaning up the mess for some time. Nobody's going to be installing anything or anyone until that's done.

It looks like it will come really close to our RV park. I went there today to secure any loose items, but there wasn't much to be done. It will hit Friday AM. So we're planning on heading over Friday PM to (hopefully) clean up.

Alachua county expects 60 mph winds for 12 to 20 hours. Gainesville, 60 miles inland.

That might be too soon, it's moving slowly. Ar you on the west coast?

I'm in Tampa but the RV park is closer to the east coast.
