Taking to the Woods

It's a big year - I turn 50 and our 27th wedding anniversary. 

Everything takes on new meaning nowadays. You are always worrying that all the expensive, nasty, mutilating treatment you took just slightly delayed the inevitable journey to Stage IV. We'd like to get away. 

What do we need? Something peaceful, relaxing and filled with nature, where we need no fancy clothing or large amounts of cash. 

Florida has many natural springs and forests, all very different from our local scrub pines and palmettos. Fresh waters and large, undeveloped, pristine forested areas with shady trails galore, geocaching, antique stores and miles of country roads. 

We discover an RV resort with all the amenities, right in the middle of Ocala National Forest, and directly across the street from springs. We will ride bikes, fish off the dock, swim in the springs and the pool, lounge around in the huge, luxury RV and have fires at night. All we really need to bring is food and our personal items. There's a golf cart provided too, and a Dollar General store at the entrance to our park -- what more do we need?
