Photos of the destruction are starting to come in. Sunshine Key RV Resort and Marina took a hit:

The images from the Virgin Islands are unsettling as well.

My trailer survived!

My 34' trailer was stored outside ~20 to 30 miles from the eyewall of Irma as it passed through central Florida. A friend who lives there year round rode out the storm nearby. He told me my trailer is still there, apparently not damaged. It did not move in the 100+mph wind. He could not see the condition of the fans and skylights, so I'll be going down to check it myself as soon as electricity is restored and fuel becomes available.

Glad I was not there!

How did the folks at TOG fair? We had a lot of wind and 5" of rain at our house near Atlanta. Trees down everywhere and power out to 1 million plus customers throughout Georgia.

Jim and Susan, I am staying at TGO, we lost power, therefore no water either. A couple of Trailers got hit by a falling tree. No one hurt. I am giving up on Helen and heading back to AMS tomorrow, at least there is cell coverage, power, water. Friends in Titusville say I have no damage to my home, lucky. There are still a few folks at TGO but from what I have seen and heard, people are making plans to move elsewhere.

Glad to hear nobody was hurt. We live near AMS in McDonough, Ga. In case you need something, send me a PM. Always happy to help a fellow 'Streamer!

Traffic is still rough, BTW. Everybody's headed back down south now. Gas seems to be in good supply around town (at least in the limited places I've been to the last couple days).

Good Luck,

Jim

I saw on the news this morning that WalMart is double matching Red Cross donations made at WalMart stores or on their website.

No from LYH at Melbourne? Guessing they are ok apart from some flooding on John Rhodes Blvd. near Ellis Rd, and maybe elsewhere.

I left Tampa on Saturday morning after seeing the latest track which had the eye just to the east of us. I went to stay with friends in Greenville, S.C. Plan B was to go into the Florida panhandle, but the track was moving west. Traffic northbound on I-75 was moving surprisingly fast.

I left Greenville for home at 11 am yesterday, and arrived just after midnight this morning. Returning, I took I-95 south in Charleston to avoid Atlanta, and I-95 in S.C. was terrible. I'd drive 70 mph for two miles and then 5 mph for two miles. It added 3 hours to my drive. Half the cars had Florida plates.
Then, in Georgia, from Brunswick to the Florida border, all the exits are closed with cones a police car and a National Guard Humvee. YOU MAY NOT EXIT even for gas. In Florida the exits were open, but there's not much gas. I found a truck stop that was doing a booming business when my "Low fuel" light was on.

My home has power although it looks like some two blocks away don't. I have about 50 palm fronds and a million oak twigs in my yard, but the big trees held. My AC was going, and I checked my ziplock bag of ice cubes in the freezer. It had half frozen puddle and half ice cubes. The milk in the fridge didn't spoil. Unbelievable!

Here's what I learned. Molly the dog was fantastic. She slept in the back seat anytime the truck moved and never complained.
It's not easy to lift a 75# dog into the back seat of a truck, I think I'll get a folding dog ramp.
Packing was easy, but taking important papers was hard. I need to organize all that stuff better. Yes, I have a file, but things like dog vaccinations aren't in there (They are now.)
I threw together a few bags of snacks for the drive and hardly touched it.
Once you start moving, the stress was lifted. Waiting and watching was the worst.

My new Airstream is still (I hope) in Ft. Meyers. I was supposed to pick it up Friday, Sept 8. With a storm coming no insurers were writing policies, so I have no idea what happened to it. I'm sure the dealer is busy cleaning up too.

Good to be home.

Scan everything, and store it on a flash drive. Or better, copies on two flash drives, so you have a spare.

Scan all my insurance policies? You must have a secretary!
That reminds me.
I took my Mackbook that I almost never use. It drove me crazy. All the e-mail services where wacky. I could receive but not send. It would ask for passwords, which I keep on a thumb drive, and then tell me it was the wrong password. Part of the problem, is that Verizon bought AOL and then it was bought by Frontier, so I think the "accounts" information was outdated. Unfortunately, I didn't have this computer to look at. (and I didn't want to spend two hours speaking with customer service in Singapore).
My phone had some information but evidently, not enough.
It ran me in circles.
The answer is to keep all those current. I had to reset the date and time!

In Ocala we had 90- 105mph winds for hours.... WOW... it was a lil crazy being on the east side of the eyewall. That is the bad news~~ the good news is the Airstream, House and Vehicles were unscathed. The Airstream never budged and is perfect

Mollysdad, glad you're home safe and sound. What a roller coaster last week was! Would you do it again?? The same way?
We can only go with the info that we have at any given point in time. You are going to have the biggest welcome party for your a/s when you pick it up!!
Again, hurricanes are a crapshoot. You do your best given info and gut instinct. Like you say, once a decision is made, a lot of stress is alleviated. Relax, unwind, and look forward to the stories you have for us with your new Airstream!!
Glad you're safe!!
