Well with all the questions about the site we have landed on I decided it best to continue to blog a bit more about this site and what got us here. We were sitting pretty in South Carolina when the bride got a wild hair and thought we should apply for a work camper opening in the Florida Keys. I said why not and the next thing you know we are down in the Keys!
We didn’t get a work camper position but we were asked to come on down because they liked our credentials but didn’t have anything for us now since they had just hired someone for the summer position. We were given a discounted rental offer and the hope of a future work camping gig after they got to know us. We thought it all over and figured that even if we never work camped in the keys this might just be the best opportunity we had to go down and stay a while since everything was booked for the winter when we originally planned to go down to the Keys.
So with the normal offseason rate at 59 per night for 11 or more nights and the offer we had at 40 per night for a month-long stay, we decided it was worth a go… and so here we are… So 1200.00 per month with taxes comes out to 1350.00 per month or 43.00 per night. Way over our budget but this is the Keys and as it appears we may very well be on the marquis spot for RV’ers in all of the Keys! So whether or not we get a gig out of this is not important to us as much as we got this location off our bucket list.
So on to the site… these sites are amazing! I could not imagine that there were sites like this anywhere but yet here we are in a site that looks like it should be on an episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Yes the back porch area is larger than the site we are parked on and yes it adjoins a salt water canal. And yes it can seat 21 people in the chairs and they provided for us this many seats on the lot without any needed use of our chairs needed. Crazyyeeee… Yes!
So the pictures in today’s blog are photos of the site and the surrounding area. If you hover your mouse over the pictures you will get a detailed description of what the picture is of. This just goes to show you if you seek out opportunities sometimes they will slam your door down and the next thing you know you are living a life’s dream… and so we are…
