Hints & Tips

Hints & Tips to make your travel easier. We do a lot of traveling around Florida. One thing we have discovered is that accommodations differ. Sometimes there are plenty of plugs in the room, sometimes not. There may be a smell in the room, or perhaps they have styrofoam cups. (We use paper.)

Therefore, we carry a lot of our own stuff. In short, we’d like to give you some hints & tips so you can be prepared, without having to take seven steamer trunks full of equpment with you,

When we travel, along with our suitcase and travel bag, we also carry a traveling picnic basket. Why a picnic basket? We were asked this question as recently as our last trip.

We have visited quite a few places and found a technique that has proved to be both fun and useful. That's the notion of staying off site. There have been times that we have wanted to go to a festival or visit a point of interest and found that the lodgings in the area are a...
