Wilderness Campground, Silver Springs, Florida

Treky says that where ever we travel in Florida, that big blue sky and those fluffy clouds follow us.  Today, we are at Wilderness Campground near Silver Springs, Florida.

I'm guessing that about eighty per cent of the sites here are privately owned.  Some have park models installed on the lots.  The park model in the center here is finished to look like a "mini home".  Tippy doesn't like the dark color - says it will absorb sun rays and make it hot inside.  Tippy knows about such things - her degree is in theoretical physics, after all.

Here is a lot for sale - just a pad for the RV and a patito. Depending on the size this lot could cost up to $25,000.

Some folks buy a lot and occupy it during the winter months - then in spring, they tie-down their stuff and go back north for the summer.

The campground has several community buildings - The small one in the center is the "post office".  Lot owners' mail is deposited in their box here and they pick it up daily.

Treky's lot is so big that he almost gets lost.  Note his white sunglasses and the other Roadtreks .

Tippy wants to go exploring and to check out the shrubs for lizards.  She loves to chase lizards but has never caught one - same with squirrels.

There are Roadtreks all over the place.  I'm told that there are 26 present for the rally.

We cross a little foot bridge going into Tippy's hunting ground.

Then down a paved trail

Then another little bridge.

A little pond with lillies

That pretty well wraps up Tippy's exploration this trip.

Tomorrow, we prepare to travel to Hot Springs, Arkansas - A distance of about 1000 miles.  Treky is excited and read to roll.

Ron, Tippy and Treky
