|Eldy in hot water, lol!|
Yesterday we enjoyed ourselves at the RV show in Fort Myers. We signed up for every possible free RV resort stay we could find!
Later in the evening, we went to the clubhouse to check out the entertainment and chatted with two couples who are "neighbors" on lots nearby to ours. There was music so we even did a little dancing. A couple who came out on the dance floor with us happened to ask where Eldy was from. He says, Elkhart, and they went crazy with questions..REALLY? Where at? We're from Elkhart, too! And that was fun for Eldy to have a little hometown chat with people who know your hometown area as well as you do...There are all kinds of neighbors when you RV..neighbors beside you at your site or anybody on your row at the campground but also we consider anybody "neighbors" to be someone who has lived in your hometown. It's just another way to feel more connected in the traveling world of RVers. The other day we even traveled down the road a few extra miles to leave a note at the campground site of fellow bloggers, Howard and Linda Payne. We met them this summer in Michigan and Eldy had been following their blog, RV Dreams for a couple of years. They weren't home, so we let them know we were in town and in the same area and just gave them a friendly hello note. They are staying at a campground called Midway, in the Everglades, for 19.00 a night, right on 41. Fifty amp hookup but no water or sewer hookup.
By following blogs, we learn lots of great information-- tips and traveling destinations are just the tip of the iceberg. I would say RVers tend to make friendships quickly. By reading each other's blogs, we become a part of their lives and when we finally do meet up with them, it's like meeting old friends and we feel like we've known them for a long time.
We are really going to miss Naples when we leave....this is one of the most beautiful, clean cities we have ever seen in our 60 plus years of living...you are minutes from the Everglades, boating, islands, wonderful restaurants, the wildlife is incredible, and the beauty of nature is endless...

Wish I could get little videos back into the blog now and then..having trouble with learning imovie and sharing little videos in the proper size. Had a funny little video of my jackhammering ibis bird friends in a feeding frenzy outside our motor home today, but just couldn't get it loaded properly! I was able to do it more easily when I had a PC for some reason. Stay tuned, one of these days, I'll have it figured out... We'll be on the road DEFINITELY Sunday morning early, heading for northern Florida. See you on the road!
