Introducing…

The Vagabond View: 11-2015

“A Wanderer’s reflections and commentary on the Rendezvous Experience; Happenings, interesting people, the local color and splendor of this magical place”.

Vag – a – bond: noun:  A person, usually without a permanent home, who wanders carefree from place to place.

Allow me to introduce myself; I’m Dave Pearson, a recent arrival here at the Suwannee River Rendezvous. As a full-time RV’er, writer and musician I was so taken by this special place that I decided to stick around for a while. Needless to say, my first impressions were validated in the ensuing days. The days melted into months as I was seduced by the serene surroundings, wonderful people and many diversions. This prompted me to seek Susie’s blessing for creating a website Blog wherein I could share my observations and experiences with our Web visitors.

Future entries will include pictures and dialog capturing the unique character of not only the physical experience, but more importantly, the diverse and colorful folks that invariably become part of Frank, Susie & Charlie’s growing “family”.

With the fall season upon us, I’m off to capture and share some of this splendor with you all in my next post!!

Till then…Cheers!

 

Cabin Camping Can’t Forget List

rustic cabinThere’s no doubt when you camp in a cabin, you need to bring significantly fewer things with you. While cabins provide your shelter and often come with bedding and dining supplies, there are still items you can’t forget to bring with you.

 

Although you’ll be indoors, it can still get cool at night especially if you’re camping in the mountains. Make sure to bring at least a 20 degree sleeping bag.

 

What happens if it rains? You can’t control the weather, but you can control your boredom. So don’t forget to bring a deck of cards. Perfect for any age, you can play a variety of games with just one deck of cards, keeping you entertained for hours. This small pack of cards can be a lifesaver on a rainy afternoon in a cabin.

 

Whether your cabin has electricity or not, you’ll still want to bring a flashlight and back up batteries. And back up batteries are necessities if you’re going to bring a flashlight or any other battery-powered device.

 

Aside from staying warm, preventing boredom and having a flashlight, don’t forget plenty of food and water. Families especially should take note of these items and make sure they re packed and ready to go for the next cabin camping trip.
