Silver Springs S.P.  By Sharon Smith October 2017


This trip was a challenge from the start.
Our group for this camp out was to be about 18 people, a nice size group for Oktoberfest. Well due to some unfortunate issues we ended up with a solid 9 members and 2 guests. Some of us us rolled in on Thursday to start the weekend early. Bruce & Laurie made it to the front gate on Thursday before there truck did not want to start back up to go to there camp site. After the tow truck left Bruce thought he would call an old friend and ask for his advice. While on the phone the truck came back to life just in time so Laurie did not have to spend the night in a tent. LOL.. One starter later and the truck was good as new. 
Robert & Sharon were the hosts for this weekend. Well due to traffic on there way to silver springs they called Laurie to advise the group that they would not make it till about 7:30 and would not be able to have the meet & greet at there site. So Fran & Gordon came up with a plan to go into town to a local restaurant ( Mojo Grill ) for our Meet & Greet. All 11 of us met up there and had a great time.( Thanks Ray for Mr. toad's wild ride..)
On Saturday some of us went kayaking on the silver river while others enjoyed the glass bottom boat ride. The river was about six feet above the norm but the turtles and gators still found grass and logs to sun themselves. We seen abundant wildlife but no monkeys. In the afternoon we lost two of our guests for the weekend ( Debbie & Randy ) due to illness but the Oktoberfest must go on. We all went over to the Smith's for the potluck. There was plenty of beer and food for the whole campground. It was great to see everyone again after our summer break. Well we made through diner before the rain started to come down but the night was still young so we moved the party into Roberts camper for some more great stories.
On Sunday most us us enjoyed what the campground had to offer, biking, relaxing and checking out the museum. The weather was overcast but holding up according to our weatherman Ray so movie night was still on. The movie of choice was "The Proposal"  It's nice to see more members staying till Monday to enjoy movie night. All the desserts were delicious and the beer tasting was great!!! After the movie was over we started a nice fire, them the rain came down without warning. Once again we found ourselves crammed under the awning but the fire was to strong for some rain to put it out. In a few minutes the rain stopped and some of us stayed around to enjoy the beer and the roaring fire.
I hope everyone gets well soon, you all were missed and hope to see you next month.

Until next camp out – stay safe and see you there.

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.
