Oct 21, 2018 - a couple of parks

Because I have camped at this place many times, I needed to go further to find new sites, parks, and letterboxes! Inverness is a nice town with parks and bike trails. I visited two parks and rode my bike through the Whispering Pines Park. I even hiked part of the Florida Trail which goes from the Everglades to the Pensacola Beach! I enjoyed walking/biking on paths covered with long pine needles and seeing Florida plants, pines, and oaks with Spanish moss hanging from them. The temperature today was in the low 80s and the humidity of...

Jan 3, 2016 - December 31st

Dec 31 Today started with raining. We got back on the Interstate and headed South. After driving for a while we came upon an accident involving a semi and 4 cars. We must have came right after it happened as there was only one lane to get by while 2 lanes were blocked. No highway patrolmen or or emergency vehicles were on the scene yet. Sally made a nice manuver to get from the right lane to the left lane, that was the only open lane, so we could procede, I bet in 10 minutes the highway was backed up for miles, as the traffic was heavy. It...

Dec 8, 2015 - Inverness Once Again

We have relocated a bit north of Bushnell, and we are back in Inverness for a few months. It was a very easy 25 mile drive, as we bounced along at 21 thousand pounds and 53 feet long. We made it safely and started to get set up. Here are a few quick 'snaps' for you until we get settled in! Mike and Nancy

Mar 15, 2015 - Inverness: Getting Aquainted - Part 1

After a rather short drive of 30 miles, we arrived at Fort Cooper and began to set up our camp. Our site is located behind 2 locked gates. We have a shed here with a refridgerator, a washer and dryer, and tons of ice cubes for evening cocktails ;-). The maintance yard is about 200 feet away, with every tool ever designed by mankind! :-) We have a Diesel Gator made by John Deere with 6 wheels, and it has enough power to pull someone's front doors right off of their hinges and door frame :-) The park covers about 700 acres, or so, and we...

Aug 3, 2014 - Ft. Cooper State Park

Ft. Cooper State Park is located in Inverness which is about a 20 minute drive west of us. The original fort was made of wood and no longer stands. It was a temporary building, constructed quickly during the Second Seminole War to house soldiers that had been injured during the war and had to be left behind and treated as the troops marched south. The Fort was attacked after most of the troops left, but reinforcements were sent within a short time. In March, there is a battle re-enactment on the State Park grounds. There are a few nice...

Jul 6, 2014 - Cooter Pond Park

The counties in Florida are much smaller than we're used to and it's easy to quickly drive to the next county. Today we drove to Citrus County and the city of Inverness to do grocery shopping and take our walk. Cooter Pond Park is right along Main St. and next to the original downtown. It's named after the Cooter Turtle, which is an indigenous snapping turtle. The town is fairly large and spread out now, with a population of over 8,000. But the little park at the entrance to the city has an air of quiet and calm. It attracts water fowl and...

Apr 29, 2014 - Visiting, shopping and stuff.

THOUSAND PALMS RV RESORT, INVERNESS, FL TUESDAY This day got off to a slow start. We took our time with breakfast and internet chores. Edie had plans to go shopping in Inverness, with Maxine. Before we left I washed the bugs off the coach front end. Edie and Maxine took off for the stores and John and I stayed home and watched TV. We did take a break from TV long enough for me to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription. Late in the afternoon a pretty good sized thunderstorm with some wind came up. The girls were not back yet, so I...

Apr 28, 2014 - Webster flea market.

THOUSAND PALMS RV RESORT, INVERNESS, FL. MONDAY Out of bed at 0700 this morning. Got to get going to the Webster Flea Market. Stopped in the park office to extend our stay for another day. There was one step up into the office, I tripped over it and arrived in full prone position, fortunately on a throw rug that was inside the doorway. Everything still worked so I got up and finished my business there. The lady behind the counter was more shook up than I was. Drove into the Henderson’s house and piled into their SUV and away we went. This...

Apr 27, 2014 - The weekend in Central Florida

THOUSAND PALMS RV RESORT, INVERNESS, FL SATURDAY Today was a slow day...not much activity until Edie went to the laundromat to do laundry about 1100. I accomplished very little except some book keeping on the computer and some trip research for a possible summer trip. The laundry was folded and put away by 2Pm. We drove in to town to visit our friends for a couple hours. Made a shopping stop at the local Winn Dixie grocery and came back here for our evening meal. After supper we caught the tail end of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and then...

Apr 25, 2014 - Heading back north.

THOUSAND PALMS RV RESORT, INVERNESS,FL. FRIDAY The picture above was taken shortly after we apparently ran into a swarm or flock of big black bugs. It was so bad that when we stopped at the next rest stop to eat lunch, I had to wash the windshields. But I digress.. This morning we decamped in Naples and took off on a 238 mile cruise up I75 to our new yard. A lovely spot on Florida state route 44 between Wildwood and Inverness. The main reason for this stop is to visit with my long time friend, John Henderson and his wife Maxine. We were...

Nov 26, 2012 - Fun Time In The Woods

My travel trailer is ready to go on over to Withlacoochee State Forest for the last few days before we go home after a month on the road. We started out on a few days in the woods and ended up out for about a month. We had a great time in the woods camping and going places that we would not have gone if it was not for GEOCACHING. We made it to three major events for Geocaching during the month, got to meet some new friends and of course got to see our old friends. Each day was something different to do and see, we got to walk the trails...

Feb 17, 2011 - Heading up the center of Florida

We left South Bay this morning and saw more fires burning in the cane fields. We headed north along the eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee up to the city of Okeechobee. You really can’t see the lake from the road because it’s surrounded by a dike that about 40 or 50 feet tall. I stopped for a while at the canals north of Pahokee, FL where there is a lock and dam to allow boats going to or coming from the Atlantic Ocean to enter and leave the lake. The lake looks like the ocean as at this location, you can’t see the other side. At Okeechobee...
