  1. So I guess the Meadow Premium sites are a good thing? We stayed in the 800 loop in December 2018, and again in April 2019 and were pretty happy with the location. In fact, we were in site 834 for Christmas, then 836 in April. We knew nothing of the loop designations at the time. I liked it because it was about the middle between the entrance where the bus stops were and the boat ramp, Trails End, etc. Backing in was a bit tight, especially when the neighbors across the road had their cars parked on the grass close to the pavement. I guess we lucked out on where they put us.
  2. Thanks for the trip! Always like to see through the eyes of others.
  3. We live here now so, the heat is an every day thing. The daily storms can also curb the day but you get used to it. We lived in Maryland and it was just as hot and humid in the summer as down here, admittedly it doesn't last as long up there.
  4. This is awesome! We always bring our Brita water bottles. The filter eliminates the sulfur smell/taste from the Magic Kingdom water. I still use the filter bottle, but the other parks seem to have better tasting water than the MK.
  5. 15 minutes from my house in Polk City. I'll shoot with you some time. This is a pretty old post but I assume you're still doing it. I thought you were talking about Tenoroc.
  6. If you like history and/or photography, I had a blast at Ft. Monroe national monument, which is about 45 minutes from where you'll be staying. Fun to walk around the fort and check out the casements. They have a really nice museum inside the fort showing life throughout it's life. I've got loads of pictures from there. Only wish I had a decent image posting site and I'd upload a few. If you're planning on going to Jamestown, I'd take a trip to the "real" Jamestown site just a few miles past the "recreated" village. I loved just jumping around from historic site to site when I lived up there in Maryland.
  7. We stayed in the 800 loop Dec. 2018 and again in April 2019. I can see how people can snag that corner. The exit is at kind of a funny angle and you have to go way out into the oncoming lane to make the right hand turn to leave. I do love that loop though.
  8. So what did you end up doing? I had to wait awhile before I could afford to replace my steer tires as they're very expensive because of size. I have Firestones on the rear which I'll probably replace next year. I've had them for five years and they've done well. I ended up putting Bridgestone R244 up front and they were a touch over $1,000 each.
  9. We left for Richmond on the 2nd and it was dry the entire way up. In fact like Duane said we hadn't had any rain for awhile. I do watch the radar and saw that we went north at the right time.
  10. Best of luck! Hope it all works out for you. I thought the same thing as above, take it and sell it, or trade it for one you like better.
  11. I never had a problem with the water from the Fort. Tastes pretty good in fact (to us anyway). I use it for cooking, making ice, etc. The only water that I can distinctly remember as being bad is at the Magic Kingdom. The water out of the fountains is definitely sulfur tasting. As far as "Florida Water" being bad, just like anything else it depends on where you're at. Jacksonville was horrible. We live 30 minutes from the gate off of I-4 and we love our water. It really depends on how you tolerate it. As far as being potable, the water from the bib is fine.
  12. I don't know if you've headed south yet but good luck on your trip! We used to live in Maryland too until we moved to Florida for good two years ago. Towed our Tahoe down south many times. Like was said above, you can't back it up like you could with a trailer so plan accordingly. Don't get yourself into a situation you can't pull straight out of. I've had to unhook twice in our travels. Not something to be proud of, but better safe than sorry! Make sure your vehicle is capable of four down towing. The only place to know for sure is in the manual, and there are instructions in there. We're about 65' with the car in tow. When you see semi's and 5ers negotiating tight spaces just remember, you don't bend in the middle. Well, not more than once. Good luck and enjoy the trip!
  13. Ha! still works! Guess I'll need to find a new photo host if I'm going to post any more pictures. Oh, these are the old school "Free Refill" mugs that were supposed to be free for life. This was when Port Orleans was really Port Orleans and not French Quarter.
  14. Let's see if this works. Just found my photobucket after years and cleaned everything out but this one picture.
  15. Yeah, I know. Pure procrastination on my part. Kept saying, I need to get some spares and keep a little can of diesel but it just went on the back burner. Resolved that problem now for sure.
