Boutique Campsites in North Florida are Coming To Life


The Captain’s Hideaway is coming together! All the hard work over the past several months is bearing fruit and we couldn’t be more excited. Working on our property has definitely been a labor of love and we apologize for taking so long to get the next video out to y’all but please enjoy our next progress video of building out our acre of land/RV home base and installing the septic tank. We accomplished a lot and even saved an injured hawk.

We are catching up on all the videos so expect to not have to wait months before the next video is released! Sad to say that we haven’t been out on the water in a while but that will absolutely change soon! Scalloping season is starting and we are going to try something new.

We hope you enjoy and look out for more videos coming soon. In case you missed it, check out part one HERE

Land Clearing our RV Home Base and Private Campsites in North Florida

There has been a lot of progress made at our little campground in North Florida. We’ve been practically full timing it in our tiny travel trailer for the past few months, only going back to South Florida for Easter with the family and another trip to pick up the dog. But we are not there yet… This video is about this neat machine called a forestry mulcher and how it just grinds anything in its path. Greg Taylor did an amazing job clearing the land in one day and we were able to keep a lot of the trees we wanted while leaving the roots from the others making the ground more sturdy to drive on, since the roots were all still there.

We’re calling the place The Captain’s Hideaway. While we may be a bit behind editing these videos, you can see the progress by following The Captain’s Hideaway social media and mailing list!

Land Shopping for our RV Home Base and Private Campsites in North Florida

We were absolutely sick of never being able to find a campsite and we’re not talking about one of those cookie cutter parking lot campgrounds where they’ve chopped every single tree down. We’re talking something more like a Florida state park. So, we decided to go buy our own piece of property with no zoning restrictions on RVs. This is the beginning of our RV home base story.

Join us as we seek out our own private RV homestead where we look to establish our home base and additional private RV campsites that will be perfect for the full time RV lifestyle. We are looking for RV property without zoning restrictions for RVs and travel trailers, where we won’t have to have a traditional building on the property. A RV home base camp in North Florida seems like a great location, there’s not a lot of restrictions on full time RV property depending on the county. So come along as we search for the perfect piece of land to build the Captain’s Hideaway private RV campsites.

It has been a rough couple of months for us with everything we had going on with fixing up the property and losing our dog but our next video is finally here! And more to come! This is the beginning of our RV home base story. We hope you enjoy and look out for more videos coming soon.

One Month Later

It has been about a month since we put this video up and we have to say this is a great cooler. We bring it back and forth to the property in North Florida, take it with us on Costco runs, and found a nice spot on the port settee fastened with bungie chords in the sailboat. With a price tag of something less than a Yeti, you can’t deny this is a good buy!

RV Remodel – Painting and Additions – Phase 1

We decided to give our travel trailer a facelift. So we start by repainting the inside of our RV to the colors we love! We added some peel and stick tile in the kitchen area and added and additional workspace to make working on the road much easier. We have a lot more work to do, but this is a great start.

watch the video

Phase one of this remodel consisted of painting the cabinets, adding a backsplash to the kitchen and a few little details here and there to give us just a little bit of comfort while traveling.

I started with removing all the cabinet doors as well as all the hardware and sanded everything down with 200 grit sandpaper. Most travel trailers are made the same; particle board and contact paper over it to give it the real wood look. They do that mainly so it is nice and light and most SUV’s or minivans can tow it. It is key too sand and prime all of the contact paper really well or the paint will not stick.

Prepping the trailer took up a lot of time but it is an important step so take your time to tape off all the edges.

Everything was primed with about 3 coats of Kilz all purpose primer.

Then I did a couple of coats of the Behrs paint and primer in one.

These are the colors I used. The bleached linen is for the walls and I also used it for the desk my dad help me build for the home office as well as the removable desk we made for the RV.

Home office
Working from our trailer before our last weekend trip. We were hooked up to a generator in a Cracker Barrel parking lot.

The peel and stick tile was a pain to instal. Id say it mainly had to do with the rounded edges. I will tell you if that has anything to do with it after I put a hexagon shaped tile in the bathroom sink, soon I hope. I will say that I am glad that I stuck through it and installed the tile because it looks so fun! Yes it is very colorful but it is way better than what was there before.

I have to say I’m very content with the way phase 1 of this project came out! I can’t wait to start phase 2. Phase 2 will consist of the walls being painted and painting the bedroom cabinet as well as adding a shelf or two in that cabinet. We shall see what else I have time for with the holidays coming up and all the sailing we hope to do on top of the RV travels we have planned!

Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments!

Camping at Lake Louisa State Park and a New Truck!

We went camping at Lake Louisa State Park in central Florida, but first we need a new tow vehicle. Come along on this adventure as we explore the area, discover some good eats and taste some local craft beer.

Watch the video here

Introducing our new pickup truck, affectionately named “Snow White”! We picked her up just in time for our camping trip to Lake Louisa State Park which we booked with a group of friends right when we bought the travel trailer.

Lake Louisa State Park is located in Clermont, Florida and just a short drive to Disney. You really don’t feel like you are still in Florida when you pull into the state park. There are hills everywhere and I don’t think we even saw a palm tree throughout the whole park.

The price was right at just about $55 for the whole weekend but be sure to bring ant killer and bug spray. Most of the sites only had electrical hook up but there was a dump station on the way out so keep that in mind when planning your visit there.

Downtown Clermont was a very nice area full of cute shops and a few market place type spots like The Downtown Exchange, which is where we visited. It was full of little booths of various yummy eats, gifts and a craft beer bar downstairs.

Flora-Bama and Fort Morgan – RV Road Trip – Part 3

Join us on our final leg of this road trip adventure through the South. We visit the the world famous Flora-Bama, Fort Morgan and Buc-ee’s!

Watch the video here

Wow this one took forever to finish but it is finally here!

We stayed in Alabama for 3 days instead of 2 but it still ended to quick! I have to say that the Florida Panhandle was definitely our favorite spot. The weather was perfect, the white sandy beaches were amazing and the whole off the beaten path beach life was exactly what we were looking for. We even got to make our “pilgrimage” (lol) to the Flora-Bama. In case you haven’t realized by now, we are Kenny Chesney fans and one of his songs is called Flora-Bama. That’s the only reason we heard of this place!

Check the video out! The sites were lovely and the food and drink were enjoyable.

Here are some of the local craft beers we really liked.

Graceland Tour and Memphis, TN – RV Road Trip – Part 2

Part two of our Southern RV Road Trip continues! We have 400 miles until we hit Memphis Tennessee so we jump on I-20 in Atlanta and head to the west. We plan on doing some sightseeing and Tour Graceland to walk in the steps of Elvis Presley and hopefully find some amazing barbecue along the way!

Stopping in Mississippi was absolutely a last minute thing that we found completely by mistake while searching for a gas station. Memphis was our next stop on our Southern Road Trip for 2 reasons: Graceland and some good Memphis style BBQ. Tupelo, Mississippi was literally 5 miles off the interstate and we saw absolutely no reason not to stop. What’s Tupelo Mississippi? The birthplace of Elvis Presley of course and since we were headed to Graceland we could find a single reason to not stop and check out where the King of Rock and Roll was born.

The property is a museum and closes at 5pm but according to the GPS we weren’t scheduled to get there until 5:45. Fortunately the grounds are open to the public and the young lady I spoke with said that we can walk around and check it out. We just couldn’t go inside the house and church.

Elvis’s childhood home was about the size of our living room and dining room combine… and I think we live in a small house. Things were different back then. When you were poor, you live in what you could afford to build. There were a few other structures that were brought to the grounds like a church and an outhouse. Visiting here is definitely a must do if your are a fan of the king. We just wish we were able to get there earlier to see what the inside of the house and church looked like in person.

Here is more info about the property: https://elvispresleybirthplace.com/visit/

A few hours later we arrived at Graceland RV Park and Campground. Yes, Graceland had a hotel and Campgrounds on property which was pretty convenient and at $46 a night you couldn’t complain at all! Admission to tour the exhibits and mansion was a different story. We chose the Elvis Experience Tour which was $73 a person. This included the mansion, the jets and all the exhibits. The 2 more expensive packages just got you extra frills and such but the package we chose was probably the best option.

The tour includes iPads and headphones for a guided tour done by John Stamos.

Visiting all the exhibits is an all day affair which we didn’t expect. There is so much to see about a man who left this world too soon! There is even a restaurant on property that serves up his favorite snack, fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. We came to Memphis as much of a fan that you could be when you weren’t even around when Elvis was alive but we left admires of the King.

I have been obsessing about trying good local BBQ since we got to “The South.” I can’t professionally cook anymore but I can still eat! The night we got into Memphis, not a lot of BBQ restaurants were open. I should have taken that as a sign and cooked in the RV instead but no I wanted BBQ! After some googling, and ruling out all the spots that were closed, we settled on Marlowes which was just up the street from Graceland. The service was excellent and they even pick you up in a pink Cadillac, which we didn’t know was running due to the “pandemic”. They had a good beer selection. We tried Zippin Pippin, a local IPA that had quite the story. Zippin Pippin was the name of a roller coaster that Elvis loved to go on. So the name was fitting for the beer and the beer for the Restaurant (I love things like that). The food… well let’s just say I didn’t finish my plate.

The next night we made plans to visit “the place” to get BBQ in Memphis, it was on everyone’s list for the best in the area so we went out of our way to drive downtown to try it. Not only were we not disappointed, I was speechless. I wanted to go back and get more before we were even finished with our lunch. The place was called Charles Vergo’s Rendezvous and it was out of this world. Next time you find yourself in the area, you must go.

Next stop: The Panhandle

It took us a lot longer to get to our final stop, but we stay there a day longer and luckily the weather was on our side! Stay tuned for the final video coming real soon!

Space Coast and Stone Mountain, GA – RV Road Trip – Part 1

Part one of our Southern Road Trip begins in the Space Coast to see some rocket launches from the Kennedy Space Center. We then drive up to Georgia and visit Stone Mountain.

Only one hour late this time. We spent the last few days packing up the travel trailer, doing laundry, taking the dogs to the groomers for my parents to dog sit and cleaning up the house before we embark on our 10 day Great Southern Road Trip. I was trying to not over pack the trailer and at the same time make sure we had everything we needed. It was pretty stressful because on top of that I asked my dad to build me a little desk that would fit right in front of the couch so I can work from the road. Rob already had this time off for a cruise we were supposed to take bit I work for myself and if I don’t work and get orders out on time then I don’t make money. Packages were cutting it close, coming in at the last hour but luckily the supplies came in earlier than expected so we were able to get on the road on Friday at 6pm, just an hour after Rob clocked out of work.

Part 1 of 3 – Titusville

Rob and I had tossed around our road trip route many times. We wanted to go here and there and all over the place but when we sat down to calculate drive time and how often we needed to stop, our trip got a little smaller and closer to home. Even though we both are perfectly capable of working remotely these days, we just couldn’t leave our pets for this long and most importantly, we didn’t want to risk our old Tahoe getting broken down all the way in the Dakotas.

SpaceX as well as ULA planned for 3 launches out of Kennedy Space Center that weekend so our first stop ended up being the Manatee Hammock Campground in Titusville FL. I have yet to see a Rocket Launch and Titusville is a great place to do that in because Cape Canaveral is directly across the Indian River.

Our campsite was a decent spot and a short walk to the water. We can’t expect much when we are booking these sites just a day or 2 ahead of time but Manatee Hammock Campground is a nice place and really cheap. After setting up, making dinner and working for a couple hours, we took a nap to get ready for this 2am launch of the Delta Heavy. By 1:30 am there were a lot of people streaming over to the Indian River and setting up chairs with their cellphones playing the livestream. We made a few friends while waiting around. Most of us never saw a launch in person and a few were showing videos of past launches. One guy even knew one of my neighbors.

At about Tminus 4 minutes they stopped the clock to double check some temperatures and after about an hour of constantly refreshing our twitter feeds, they finally announced that the clock is being set to 25 minutes and we are a go for launch! Yay! I was so excited! Rob was telling me that is is a pretty rare launch. They don’t do very many of the Delta Heavy launches and this was supposed to be a very large and powerful boom that we were definitely going to feel miles away.

T-minus 5… 4… 3… 2.. abort. Wait what? The launch got scrubbed at tminus 2 seconds! It was 3 am! We were so disappointed! The sky was perfectly clear and they had a great weather window but it got postponed for another week. Not to worry, there was a SpaceX launch at 10am on Sunday morning when we check out. Just kidding, that got scrubbed too. Not to worry, it was still a relaxing couple of days and a good start to our road trip. Saturday we drove around this small city called Melbourne just a half an hour from Titusville. It is supposed to be a little local hidden gem and we wanted to see what it was all about. The marina was where we parked. It was right next to the downtown area which was absolutely adorable and charming. We made friends with the owner of a country bar and had a beer to wait out the rain before we walked around some more to discover the cute old homes in the historic district right on the creek.

The next morning we packed up bright and early to make our way up to Georgia but made a quick pit stop to Destination Daytona to pop in to the Harley dealership and get some BBQ at Colt’s Pig Stand.

After driving about 400 miles, we arrived at our campsite in Stone Mountain late at night and in the pouring rain but we still managed to set up a little bit. When we woke up the next morning we saw how fantastic the view really was. Our campsite was right on the end of the lake but a short walk and we were able to see just how lovely the park was.

Most of the attractions were closed during the week but we were able to explore the grounds. The skylight to the top of the mountain was open we met the most adorable old man that gave us a history lesson about the carving. Turns out the guy who did Mount Rushmore was the one who started this carving and Stone Mountain is 30 ft larger than Mount Rushmore.

Next stop: Mississippi and Tennessee

August 25, 2020 Newsletter

Hey y’all! In case you missed it, our Tuesday Night Livestream was a lot of fun! We talked about the storm we got into that damaged our sails as well as our upcoming road trip! Check it out here:

Speaking of our upcoming road trip. We picked up this generator for the trip and for any other time we plan on traveling while Robert has to work and needs electricity (and AC). This is the unboxing video but I feel like a full review should follow this video when we get back from the trip to tell you what we really think after using it.

Road trip route – 1st draft

We had a cruise booked for the end of August and I don’t need to remind you of the world we are living in now to know that it’s been canceled. We decided to keep the days off of work and still do some sort of a trip whether it be a week long sailing trip or to spend some time at Rob’s mother’s cabin in Northern Georgia, we were going to get away and do something exciting!

Last week we finally came up with a first draft of a route to take for our very first road trip (maybe we will come up with a clever name for it soon lol)! Rob really wanted to go more west because of all the amazing things to see but we decided on something a little closer to home for our first time mainly because we aren’t sure if our old Tahoe would make it. God forbid we were in South Dakota and thats when the Tahoe decides to die!

Once we figure out what to do/see in Mississippi and Alabama then the next step will be to research the campgrounds and then we will see how this route will be modified some. We can’t even tell you how excited we are for this trip! Fingers crossed the storms don’t cause any damage!

The poor dogies are staying home this time, thanks to my mom and dad who are our neighbors. There is still a lot of renovating and modifications that needs to be done to our travel trailer (I really feel like we should name her shouldn’t we?) that we haven’t gotten to the dog proofing part just yet.

We would absolutely love to hear from you about this route! What are some of the must see places and must eat places as well!

This weekend’s adventure

This weekend’s adventure took us up to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campgrounds for the weekend. For the first time in a while (of ever) we hung out at the campground more and be at the parks less. It was very exciting because not only is it a lovely campground, you get the “Disney Magic” as well. There may or may not be a video coming… 😬 We hardly pulled the camera out.

RV progress

Phase 1 of the RV Facelift is complete. Video is coming soon. The cabinets are 80% finished (there is still the one in the bedroom and that involves us taking out the bed and everything) and the backsplash in the kitchen is complete. What a pain but so worth it!

Look out of the post coming soon. I will link all the items we used in the project.

Our Next Livestream

The plan is to consistently do livestreams on YouTube every Tuesday. We plan to do a livestream this evening to talk about our road trip and more! Hope you can make it!

Best Small Quiet Generator – Cummins Onan P4500i

One problem we needed solving lately was being able to boondocks a night or 2 on the RV before or after going to a campsite. Why you ask? Well, so we can take longer weekend trips and Rob can work from the RV. All he needs is an internet connection, power to the laptop and… well… air conditioning!

We wanted something that would also be perfect for the sailboat too, because after all, sailboats are just floating RV’s anyway. Our biggest hinderance from taking the sailboat or RV anywhere further than a few hours from South Florida is Robert’s job. Haha I know how that sounds! Work really does get in the way of our play (that’s so sarcastic by the way)!

After months of research and testing our small generator and my dad’s Honda EU3000is (which worked but was super old and leaked a bit), we came the across the Cummins Onan P4500i. The only problem was it was always sold out and that’s why it took us months to research. One day it magically appeared, only 1 in stock so we stanched it up faster than a fat kid eating cake.

In this video, we unbox and review the Cummins ONAN P4500i Digital Inverter Generator. We find out if it can start a 15k BTU A/C and remain relatively quiet under load. We use our Db meter and test the sound levels as well.

Buy a similar generator on Amazon https://amzn.to/30yaBsx (the one we just reviewed is not on amazon right now. We Will edit this link when we notice it is available again)

Titusville, Cocoa Beach and Manatee Hammock Campground

We went up to Titusville for the weekend to watch a SpaceX launch and had originally booked a campground further north. Just on a whim, as we were driving there, we pulled up google maps and saw Manatee Hammock Campgrounds and even better, they had availability for the weekend.

July 23, 2020 Newsletter

There has been so much going on with us these day that we are finally almost caught up with everything we’re behind on. Our latest video of our weekend in Titusville, FL is finally finished and published. The campground we stayed at had a fantastic view of Kennedy Space Center.

What’s Been Going On

We took in a pregnant kitten a few months ago and named her Salem, mainly because she’s an all black cat and I grew up watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch. She gave birth to 4 kittens on June 6th close to midnight, of course underneath our bed. Unfortunately only 3 of the 4 kittens survived. It has been quite the adventure of watching them grow. They are such little blessings but we’re praying for them to finally fully wean. Hopefully it wont take much longer than a couple more weeks. They are the cutest little things but now they can climb the bed and all 4 cats can use the litter box now so we have reached our limit. Our intention was not to keep the little munchkins but to make sure they were delivered safely, to get Salem fixed and put her back out and give the kittens to good homes. We have arraigned homes for 2 of the 3 already.

Why Haven’t We Been Sailing?

A few weeks ago we took my Dad, brother and brother’s girlfriend out for their first sail. We decided not to film anything and let it be a relaxing afternoon with family, but relaxing it wasn’t! The prop shaft was leaking and suddenly the bilge pump didn’t want to work but we didn’t realize it until we were 3 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean and my brother was like “uhm are we going to sink?” While Rob and my brother was taking care of that, I was checking the weather and trying to avoid a storm that was coming our way. By the time I got Rob’s attention to help me bring the sails in, the storm was on us and we were going over 10 knots! The wind ripped the head sail, right on top of a previous repair, and 5 slides ripped right off the main sail, as well as ripping a nice hole into the main sail too.

I didn’t get any pictures of the main sail before it was brought over to the sail loft but here are some of us taking the head sail down and folding it up.

The sails are going to cost a pretty penny to repair but I’ve been saying this whole time “Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor.” A $1,400 lesson but a lesson nonetheless.

If you feel inclined to, there are a few ways to help us with getting the sails repaired. Visit the “Support Us” page to find out how you can help.

New Channel Trailer

Since we pretty much sold everything in last year’s channel trailer on YouTube, we decided to spruce our channel trailer up a bit.

How’s the RV?

We are having a blast with the new travel trailer! I already have the paint colors picked out and am dying to start giving the trailer a facelift but since the sails are going to take a while to get fixed, we’ve been taking the trailer out a little more than expected. Poor pups, they miss us! I think they will come with us on our next trip. Just need to buy a few things to protect the furniture from their hair and nails.

Disney is Open!

Last weekend we went up to Disney for the first time in forever! No video to come because we didn’t want to run around the parks dying of heat with masks and having to lug around camera stuff too. The parks were at 25% capacity. Most kiosks, quick service and shops were closed but it wasn’t that horrible of a weekend. We got to ride the new Star Wars ride twice!

The New Studio

Since Rob has been working remotely for several months and probably will continue to work from home for a lot longer, my dad and brother built us a desk in our office/studio as my birthday present. It took them just a day to build it but it took me several days to sand, prime, paint and polyurethane it but it looks fantastic. We still haven’t finished getting rid of the old desks and bookshelves as well as moving everything into the new desk but here’s a sneak peak.

Our Next Livestream

The plan is to consistently do livestreams on YouTube every other Thursday. We are doing our best to get our life in order to stick with it. We plan to do a livestream this evening. Hope you can make it!
