Florida Luncheon – Travelers’ Rest, Dade City – January 25

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Travelers’ Rest LuncheonNine Northern Illinois couples got together to share news and stories as well as enjoyed lunch with fellow Airstreamers. The news is: The Carligs have replaced their trailer, destroyed during their Alaska caravan. They now have a 2007 30 footer to continue their caravaning adventures. Wagnons have moved back to a trailer after 3 years with a motorhome. Their new 25 foot trailer should be easier to handle on the highway and campgrounds. They still spend most of their winter months in their double wide at Travelers Rest. The Winters came over from their full time Florida Retirement home. The Morrisons visited from their double wide in Holiday, FL. The Dixons have purchased a double wide in Dunedin, FL. which has been in their family since 1973.

Travelers’ Rest was a Airstream park for 30 years. Since its conversion to an open format, some 8 years ago, significant changes have occurred. It has now become a destination Resort for full time living. Many 8 to 12 foot wide Park Models have been installed and many people stay year round. Many SOB trailers and Motorhomes make the facility a sell out much of the winter months. They may have some sites available without reservations occasionally, but suggest you call ahead before making plans to stop by.

We wish to thank Ruelene Aarup for setting up the luncheon. A good time was had by all.
