    New (to us) TV

    After some deliberation the wife and I decided to step forward on a new family vehicle. The 2 main things that sold us on this new to us model is the 3rd row seats which our old one did not have, and the low miles (24,000 versus 125,000). The old one, 2004 Durango ST 2WD, 4.7L V8, 125,000...

    Three Rivers/Lake Seminole

    We spent 5 nights out at Three Rivers CG last weekend... Before this the most we had been out was 3 nights. Overall it was a great trip. Due to the heat (heat index 110+) we spent most of our time either in the camper, or driving. We went over to Tallahassee one afternoon (an hour or so drive)...

    FL - Lake Victor Private CG

    I must say this had been one of the best CGs we have stayed at to date. Cons: The only problems was the lack of playground for the kids and being a small CG, it catered more towards guys staying there for a week or two fishing. The layout left a little to be desired but they did have some...

    Any Murphys law when leaving?

    Post your stories about something that always seems to happen before, during or just after you leave the CGs. In my case, right around the time or just after we leave, at least 75% of the time there is rain. Sometimes it is as we are packing up, sometimes as we are pulling out, sometimes just...

    anyone camped Lake Victor, Northwest FL?

    http://lakevictorrv.com/ I have heard lots of good things about the lake itself but I have not heard anything about the CG and there is nothing on rvparkreviews or elsewhere. I did send an email last night asking lots of questions so hopefully I will get a response soon for pricing...

    Facebook

    Suggestion: have the admin/owners create a Facebook page and group for us younger PUPportal fans... there is one popup group there but it has something like 43 fans, far below how big it can get if there was a bigger name such as this website behind it. Facebook (FB) has grown so big that even...

    Labor Day trip - 3 Rivers CG FL

    Just pulled back into the driveway a little bit ago.... can't unpack yet because it is raining. We took 3 nights out at Three Rivers CG which is about 2 hour drive from home, the farthest away from home so far. I got off work Fri at 2PM and left the driveway by 2:30 (DW had everything packed, I...

    Website for finding CGs

    Admins may want to sticky this at the top of all the Campgrounds subthreads. I ran across this site and it has a large majority of CGs and many more I never knew about. It includes private and State Park CGs. http://www.epgsoft.com/CampgroundMap/ (I suggest a high speed internet connection)...

    idea - Bringing pup into the digital age

    As I am a computer tech, I have been tossing around ideas in my head for our pup. One is to buy/build a small low profile computer that can be mounted somewhere unused under the counter, and add an FM tuner, a DTV tuner, a DVD drive and a wireless mouse/keyboard that can stash somewhere hidden...

    FL - Labor Day weekend, 3 Rivers CG

    We have reservations for 3 rivers State Park on Lake Seminole for 3 nights (Fri, Sat and Sun nights). From here it will be about a 2 hour drive, but the bad part is it is just the 4 of us, no friends or family. Since we are on the second spot from the lake, I am making sure I am bringing my...

    Here comes Claudette

    The first storm of reasonable size and strength is heading right for me, Tropical Storm Claudette... We usually don't worry around here until we see it hits a stronger Cat2 or higher and it is landing within 100 miles of here, or 200 miles for a large sized storm.

    Our first outing in popup

    We got our first outing planned for one night this weekend at a local campground, only about 5 miles from our house. We are doing this for the first trip as the wife has never been camping, so she knows what to expect. Also I figure this will be a good test to see how the daughters (7 yrs and 19...

    FL - northwest FL campgrounds

There are 2 campgrounds at Karick Lake, North and South... Bear Lake, currently closed until the lake levels come back up, the...

    Our first popup - 1987 Jayco

    Brought home our first popup the other day... 1987 Jayco 1008 SG. The wife has never officially been camping but I have plenty growing up, was almost always in a tent. It originally belonged to my brother-in-law who bought it about a year ago for $1200 but sold it because they bought a much...
