Another Rainy Day

Well, we arrived in Bushnell, Florida yesterday afternoon and we like this park much better than the one we just left. Charley and Cheyenne have been out walking several times but, since it has been rainy all day, I have not had a chance to see the entire park yet. We did see the pasture full of donkeys as we pulled in so we have already picked up some apples and carrots so that we can feed them when the weather clears. I saw at least 2-3 babies!!

Our day yesterday was a busy one. After packing up the 5er we left Spanish Main Resort at 8:00AM and headed for Camping World to get our auto satellite dish installed. Glenn, the tech who did our install, was fantastic!! He stepped Charley through everything he was doing and explained it all to him and he did a great job! Everything worked the very first time!! We were at Camping World until around 2:00 but it was worth the wait. We were able to walk over to Cracker Barrel and eat breakfast while we were waiting.

We pulled into the Escapees Park (Sumter Oaks) in Bushnell, Florida around 3:00 and checked in. Charley parked the 5er, got her level, hooked up the power, put the slides out and we then pushed the button on our new satellite dish. Charley was so worried that we would not be able to use it because there are so many trees here in this park. He was convinced is a better way to put it, but, GUESS WHAT? About 10-12 minutes after the button was pushed we had TV!! And it was perfect, all channels including HD are working perfectly!! This put a smile on both our faces. So before we had even finished getting set up we had TV. Already worth the expense in my mind!! Open-mouthed smileOpen-mouthed smile

We grilled burgers for dinner last night and tonight we are grilling steaks. Going to the pancake breakfast here at Sumter Oaks in the morning. Hopefully the sun will be shining tomorrow and I can get a few pictures that we can share.


  1. Wow, steaks on the grill sounds great. It is too cold here in maryland to cook outside. Enjoy!

  2. Don't you just love those automatic satellites??
    It just makes things soooo much easier. Glad you got yours installed and everything is working properly. :-) Now just enjoy!!

  3. We haven't invested in a satellite yet so interested in your experience with it. How do you like this escapees park?

  4. We like this escapees park. It is very nice with large, level sites and the people are great, as usual. The biggest drawback is that it is so far away from everything but then it makes for a very quiet and peaceful setting - so some pros and some cons. We will definitely consider coming back for another visit next winter. We still haven't been able to feed the donkeys but we will get that done soon.
