Tin Can Tourists pt.2

 Starting to see more classic cars pulling campers.

 I think this is a UHaul camper.  I like the tip out windows.

 Looks like this would be easy to pull and makes a nice mini tent.
 Jim and I had one like this....but not as pretty.

 I like this one...Trotwood...the windows tip out so can be open in the rain.

 Big campers...little campers...doesn't matter.

 I believe this is a Boler.

 another Boler.....very similar to our Scamp.
 I like this...the little windows on the top open and the side windows tip out...good air flow.
 How about this one.

This tent folds down into that little trailer and he tows it with that little beetle. How cool is this. The bed is on the trailer.
Go to and look for a meet in your can go through all these you a good idea what you might want.

Tin Can Tourists.... Sertoma Youth Ranch Brooksville FL

 There were two RPods here...This one had a small slideout and a screenroom that attaches.

 The couple who own this silver trailer did all the work themselves.

I thought this was pretty cute....little dog with goggles riding in a side car on a motorcycle.

 One of the nice parts of Tin Can Tourists is you do not need to own a vintage camper or motorhome to join.....when they have a meet like this....they also have open house so the public can look inside all of the campers etc.

Christmas Eve....Christmas Day. 2016

 We anchored behind Drigger Island...Saw a big gator on our way in..
 Jim spotted this big one swimming.
 I like these turtles...
An Osprey having lunch
 This is a Great Blue stands about 5' tall
 Back through the canal
 Here is another big to be at least 12'-13'
The Elusive Limpkin....Diane's favorite bird.
 How about this guy....look at the size of the mouth.
 Jim got a charge out of the way this big one was sunning.

 This one is not as big as the others...but still could do damage.

 another good sized gator
 Now here is one that would make you want to jump right in the water and go swimming...LOL
Same gator...different view...just look at those teeth.  We see so many people on pontoon boats just jump in the water ....I don't think we would....not after seeing so many big ones.
We got to our anchorage around noon...these two were checking each other out....decided not to sit around all afternoon so headed to the ramp and pulled out.....a great 2 days on the water and lots of big gators.  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
