How We Review Campgrounds

We plan to visit a lot of parks over the next few years, so we decided to make a rubric review system, considering we are educators at heart. Our reviews are based on our experience as Class A coachers, traveling without kids, a car or time constraints. We evaluate on the overall experience of living at the campground and partaking in the available amenities, along with attractions that are no more than 50 eBikeable miles round trip from the site. We will share commentary about how/why we allocated points for each park. Points system for each section: 0 – so … Continue reading How We Review Campgrounds

Slightly Brilliant

With a name like Slightly Stoopid, the band and the fan base are daring the rest of the world to take them too seriously. Playing Fusion Mash, which we define as a mix of pretty much any kind style of music you want to name except classical, the skater-boys from San Diego have been free to move in any creative direction their wind blew. The result is a twenty plus year anthology of some nearly top of the chart songs, like “Sweet Honey,” and a whole lot of reggae, ska, funk and sorta rap that all flow together like a … Continue reading Slightly Brilliant

Everyday Life, Everyday People

St. Augustine Beach and Pier is just a mile down A1A from one of the a secret back gate in Anastasia State Park. We biked over for the every Wednesday morning Farmer’s Market. The sun was high but not so hot and the vendors were open at 8 am selling everything from tomatoes and cinnamon buns (which we bought both) to whimsical handmade jewelry and one-of-kind recycled home decor. Datil pepper hot sauce was on the hunt list and we crossed it off with Jane, co-owner with her son and chef JJ of Red Flag Spicy Foods.  What we couldn’t … Continue reading Everyday Life, Everyday People

Ain’t no Stoppin Us Now

We’re on the move! Ain’t no stopping us now We’ve got the Groove We broke camp last night and said goodbye to Sebastian Inlet State Park this morning. Sadly, we didn’t get to say farewell to our South Carolina private park neighbors on Saturday. They pulled in with their 42 foot, 50 amp Beaver on Thursday to try out a State Park spot with 30 amp service and no amenities other than a heavily used bathhouse. Not being able to cool their rig through their 50 to 30 converter, they ran the generator 24/7 and the park ranger wasn’t having … Continue reading Ain’t no Stoppin Us Now

Tame Turtle Crawl

About a month into retirement and the days are starting to run together where it’s hard to tell Tuesday from Friday. Used to be work from pre-dawn to dark and do chores on the weekend with an occasional activity or vacation sandwiched in. It’s starting to feel like we don’t have to treat everyday like a to-do list and not doing anything is just as good as doing something. Yesterday we took the bikes out for a leisurely reconnoiter North of Sebastian Inlet were we found BG’s Bayside Marina, part of BG’s Surfside Grill and Adventures, the official concessionaire for … Continue reading Tame Turtle Crawl

Oh, Lookie there, I’ve got a bite

We first heard about the famous Sebastian Inlet Fishing pier from Sheri’s Boomer parents who became avid fisher people in their retirement. The 745 foot jetty is open 24/7 and is a super highway for fish-life commuting to and from the Indian River Bay Area, making it a Mecca for diehard and novice anglers alike. Fishing was on our must-do list.Most folks on the pier have push wagon carts loaded up with poles, tackle, bait, coolers, chairs, umbrellas, big screen TVs. We had our ebikes. The engineer has rigged them as cargo carriers. Properly loaded with our pole and umbrella … Continue reading Oh, Lookie there, I’ve got a bite

Welcome to the Jungle (Trail)

The co-pilot seat is set up as the in-camp mobile office for Sheric Consulting LLC. With a hotspot, iPad Pro, MacBook Air, iPhone 6+, iphone 8+, printer and gmail, we are in business. Today we would reconnoiter. Sebastian Inlet State Park is situated 10 miles north of the 510 causeway that brings traffic across the Indian River Bay and out to the barrier island. The park itself spans the northern most barrier island on the Treasure Coast and the southern most barrier island on the Space Coast, making it the stuck in the middle inlet. Between the causeway and the … Continue reading Welcome to the Jungle (Trail)

Roam if you want to

Roam around the world Roam if you want to Without anything but the love we feel Well, we have a little more than the love we feel, a lot more in fact. And we toted it all in 34’11” from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Coast on a straightaway through sleepy Central Florida. It was a cottonball cloud day with blue skies and the sun high – perfect traveling for Day 1 of Reboot Roadtrip. State Road 64 runs through the heart of central FL – farms and forest, manufactured homes and custom builds, cows and horses, berries and … Continue reading Roam if you want to
