Manatee Springs State Park Recap By Lynn Morri January 2020


A Big Thank You to Lynn & Willie for hosting our October campout.


Friday afternoon, as Willie was preparing our site for the Friday night meet & greet (We - Willie & Lynn were hosting), the Potluck campers began to roll in.

Sixteen campers gathered around the campfire including newbies Richard & Michelle.  Welcome Richard & Michelle! We also had an unexpected visitor who kept trying to join our group - a racoon ("Rocky").  While Rocky's night of adventures was just beginning ours was ending at 9:30 and at this writing we wonder who Rocky will be inviting to Saturday night's Potluck dinner!

  On Saturday morning Robert, Denise, Rob, Sharon, Pat, George, Richard & Michelle went kayaking/canoeing for 2 hours. They saw turtles, birds and were surrounded by manatee - all around and underneath their boats. Weather was great - over cast, cool & comfortable temps, making this an ideal day to enjoy the spring.

  Later that evening the Potluck campers began to arrive at our site.  Gathered around the campfire, we enjoyed each other's company and the delicious dishes everyone prepared.  Nature continued to entertain us throughout the evening as squirrels, deer, racoons and even an armadillo made appearances - Robet, Willie and Lynn stayed up long enough to see the armadillo.  With perfect weather, food & company (both human and animal), a good time was had by all.

  Sunday morning some of the group went for a bike ride,some packed up and left and others took it easy until it was time for movie night at Rob and Sharon's site.  The surprise backup movie was, "The In-laws".  Rob was experiencing technical difficulties and could not show us the original surprise movie.  Thank you Rob for the funny movie - good choice! Thank you to all the Potluck campers for making this another wonderful camping experience! Hope to see you all in February!

Why Join A Club?

There is no better feeling when you pull into a campground and you know most of the people there.
I started camping with my family 15 years ago and every campground we went to, no matter how many people were at the campground we always felt alone.   By the time you met other campers it was time to pack up and go home. But now since we joined the "Florida Potluck Campers" its like a BIG family reunion every trip. You pull into the campground and they know your coming and what site you will be staying on. If you need help they are there, having issues with your camper... most likely someone there can fix it and so on...... This is the only way to camp!! So come on out and see for yourself what we are all about and how much fun camping is when you have friends everywhere you go. 

In Memory Of Steve Harris  6/13/2012

 
Steve shared his love and wisdom of camping with each one of his fellow campers. Upon arriving at each campout, we were greeted with a warm hello and an encouraging word. Steve cared about each family and would always check on each camper until the last family arrived safely at their site. He would make his way throughout the weekend to visit and share his knowledge of camping, the park we were camping at and places of interest in the area. As we continue to share the memory and our love to camp, we have become the Florida Pot Luck Campers.
