    HI, I am here from central Florida (N of Orlando) to learn more about pupping and camping and all that. I moved to FL a few years ago. Thought I could explore the state and its lovely nature in a used Pup in what passes for my free time. Not sure what else to say! It's just me and my two pupsters (dogs) right now. They are not "exactly" the dogs in my profile image, but you get the idea.
    I hope to redo the Pup in a more tropical theme than the Coleman standard issue-- once I can maintenance bugs worked out first. Or, are there always "bugs" to work on?

    Welcome from northern Florida. We never get bored of the beautiful state parks Florida has to offer. No reason to ever leave the state for us. In my personal opinion, speaking from a position of having lived many places, Florida has the best camping.

    There won't always be "bugs," more just like little changes you want to make along the way.

    Welcome from conyers, GA. I would love to relocate to Central Florida someday. Check out Orchid's "not a rally" rally at Fort Clinch in December.

    I love northern GA. Spent my June vacation in Helen, Ga last year. FL too hot by June. We were at a hotel, not camping, but I would camp if going back & could get reservations- Amicalola park or some such place. Tho, the hotel was right on the riverbank, SO entertaining to watch the tubers go by all day. When the tubers stop, fly fisher-people come in the eve.

    Visited the Panhandle for the FIRST time a month ago, and it was beautiful. Central Panhandle, stayed at Falling Waters state park. I loved the forests in that area, different from Central FL.

    Having stayed in Yogi Bear campground in Apopka near Orlando for a whole summer back in 1980 I can tell you that if you live in Florida, you'll always have bugs.

    LOL, yes there are bugs of the crawly type, then there are "bugs" of getting camper kinks worked out. Reminds me, Should put new roach hotels/Combat in the PUP now. I'm Ok with "wild" bugs but the palmetto bugs are creepy here. I also have one slightly torn piece of canvas, by a post, maybe eaten or maybe, it got pinched in the post going down. Should patch that. Another "bug"
