April Spring Break (kids, dog) to Fort DeSoto County Park near St. Petersburg, FL. One of the most beautiful campgrounds ever, pristine beaches, kayak with dolphins, biking, swimming. Very popular, need to make reservations way in advance, but worth it! Plenty to do if you travel with kids, but great either way.

2006 In New England

After making the decision to retire in New England we're looking forward to leisurely exploring all that it has to offer. i.e. The White Mountains, the Maine Coast, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, The Adirondacks, New Brunswick, Vermont, etc. We can reach virtually the entire area on one tank of diesel out - and one tank back. From our home in central Maine, we can round-trip Acadia National Park, as well as other choice locations, on one tank.

Last year we drove over 6,000 miles (Maine to Florida and points beyond) which - for us - was just too much driving and not enough enjoyment. Drive less and stay longer seems to be our cup of tea!

I raised my family camping at Ft. DeSota Park. I know that we spent well over 200 nights there - starting just after the campground first opened around 1964. The original plan was to restrict the park to tents only and the first bunch of sites was on the Southwesterly point. I believe that I was probably the first person to take an early model pop-up tent camper into the park. It was a "copy" of what was then known as a "Florida Camper." As I remember, we had to get permission from the Pinellas County Parks Director, Jim Work - who I later became more acquainted with through my work in marine construction. I think that we convinced Jim that the pop-up camper was nothing more than a tent on wheels - and he granted us permission. For quite a few years all anyone had to do was drive in, set up on any site, and then report to the office. Those were the best and happiest years I ever spent with my family. I stayed there again last year, for several weeks in the Airstream, while I re-modeled my condo on Tierra Verde. The campground was virtually the same fantastic place - but the rest was only memories!

Cottonwood campground in Big Bend is nicely shaded and some grass. Water available but no hookups (in Feb. 2001). Used to be a guy with a row boat that would offer to take you to Mexico for a dollar. Directly across the Rio Grande is the Mexican village of Santa Elana, about 30 homes. We went and had a great time. Have heard the rowboat guy has been shut down post 9-11 but you could check.

Hi,
We live near Lake Allatoona. We have spent many a weekend there. We recommend Allatoona Landing. You can get sites real near the lake. Nice pull throughs, swimming pool, store, bath houses, and lots of good neighbors. Let us know if you need any other info

Wow, some of you are really ready for the year with everything planned. There are many places we want to go but seem to always stay close to home with unit rallies. We camped last spring at the Keys and a few nights at Fort DeSota. I agree - a beautiful park. We were there when it was awarded the Best Beach in America! Camped at Altoona for '96 Olympics in Atlanta and loved it. This year we would like to go to Florida in the spring and head up to New England in the summer.

Jones Beach! I used to work summers in High School at the beach. Wonderful place, doesn't look like it has changed at all in the past 40 years!

Already done all our traveling for the year

Unless something radical changes with my job (unlikely), I have used all my time off for the rest of the year attending the Florida State rally last week. At least I will have plenty of time to work on our Overlander...
