Mar 11, 2015 - Rural America along Hwy 301

After leaving Wildwood we drove a short way up I-75 to get to Hwy 301, which took us northeast from the gulf coast of Florida to the Atlantic coast. We drove through rural Florida. The town are really hurting, lots of closed businesses, lots of dilapidated homes. Lots of farm land for sale. Very sad. We did take a couple of pictures in Waldo, showing some very hold buildings in the downtown.

Apr 12, 2014 - Caching Around Town

We like to roam around a area when we camp near a town and love to see what is going on. The best way to see a town is to go geocaching, this way you get to see out of the way places that you don't know about. We had a few caches on the grounds of the University of Florida, a cache container was at a parking garage for the students and the coords took us to the 1st floor of the garage. A light had come on in my head and I told Norma that the hint said "YOU CAN SEE FOR MILES", so I bet the container is at the top of the parking garage. It...

We arrived at Waldo,Florida around noon time and got a nice camp site. The wind is blowing from the north and the temp is to go down into the 40's tonight.

Dec 10, 2009 - Gary & Larry Christmas Show

We have not been to the Waldo Bluegrass festival for a good lot of years.The change is not for the better. We hope that they shall spend some cash and fix up the campground buildings, the stage area . It had rained earlier that day and some of the people who had put their chairs up around the stage had a big surprise. The roof has been leaking and some of the chairs were wet from all the rain. They need to do some work on the roof and the restrooms. Beside that, GOOD MUSIC , GOOD FOOD and GOOD FRIENDS, what else do you need?????

Dec 22, 2008 - WALDO BLUEGRASS

We have been going up to Waldo,Florida which is by Gainesville,Florida for over twenty years. When I started to work for the local fire dept, we had gone to a bluegrass festival up at the Peace River Campgrounds and they had a bluegrass festival going on. That was in 1975 and we have been going ever since, wish we had been taken picture during all those bluegrass festivals. What pictures I do have is from a few years ago of festivals around the state of Florida and some up north.These pictures are from Waldo , Florida Bluegrass.

Feb 6, 2008 - Where's Waldo?

Hi Everyone, A short entry tonight as it's late and I'm tired from being a road warrior. OK, so where's Waldo, FL??? It's a bit North and a little East of Gainesville, FL. We are about 45 minutes due West of St Augustine, the oldest city in America. We'll go check that place (St A's) out and take pix so you can see what it's like. We met up with friends that stayed at our campground in da U.P. eh for about 4 months last summer. They let us know about this place which is very reasonable ($138/week) and quiet. No Internet but we have water,...
