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!

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.

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.

Largest Dude Ranch East of the Mississippi!

We took our new travel trailer on her first weekend trip to the largest dude ranch East of the Mississippi! River Ranch RV Resort is located next to the Westgate River Ranch Resort. They say the birthplace of the American Cowboy is right here in Florida! Makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Haven’t you noticed all the cow pastures everywhere? The RV sites were fantastic and the resort was still a lot of fun despite the pandemic. We can’t believe we never went to a rodeo before, what a blast!
