ℹ️ About the episode:
In this episode, we finally make it to the Florida Keys. We stayed at tow very popular RV campgrounds both on last-minute reservations. North Beach Campground in St. Augustine and Long Point Campground State Park in Melbourne Beach, FL. Key West was our "Key" destination so we made those reservations about 1 month out, but everything else this "season" has been made on the way. Our strategy for reservations, and lack thereof, is outlined in the article - link above.

  • There seems to be a lot of concern this year about RV parks and campgrounds being booked solid and having no place to go. Yet, the way we travel by RV (and make reservations) hasn’t changed. In this article, we want to dispel some of the hype around campground reservations and provide you with some actionable advice to get out there and make your adventure happen. But first, it’s important to acknowledge that the conclusions we make are almost always aligned with our beliefs. What does that have to do with campground reservations? Let’s say someone buys into the idea that “everything is booked,” and their summer plans are doomed. He or she makes one phone call to a state park to learn that they are booked solid. Do they make a second phone call? Doubtful. The first phone call proved their point. It’s over. Pack it up and sell the RV! Meanwhile, another RVer who does not have the idea that “everything is booked” calls a second campground, maybe a third, or even changes their exact destination or travel dates. They trade the adjustments for the memory of a lifetime. Certainly, there are more RVers today due to borders being closed and limited international travel. We have the distinct advantage of having RV’d semi full-time for the past 5 years and being able to compare 2021 to 2020 and 2016. Candidly, we can’t tell the difference. There has never been a time during our 5 years of travel that a reservation was not required at a highly popular place during a popular time of year. The only difference between 2016 and 2021 is what or who we blame. Click the button to continue reading and learn the approach we take when making reservations and what you can do this year to help you get out there even more! keepyourdaydream.com/rsvp

  • I've looked at a lot of videos of this type and this is the first of yours I've seen, but I gotta say yours appeal to me the most. I can't quite put my finger on why. Maybe because you don't have segments that have no purpose, like 5 minutes of just driving down some highway. I didn't fast forward at all like I usually need to do. You always seem to be having fun and you all play off each other so well. I would like to know what the campgrounds cost though.

  • Kudos to your channel. :-) I've been researching airstreams and sailboats for quite some time now. As an author it doesn't matter where I live. I'm a total nerd as well so I'm all in on solar and a huge battery bank for some boondocking though I'm aware there are other considerations. It isn't likely that expense will be a consideration but want to do it right the first time. In a rather surreal way you could say Benjamin Franklin will be covering my expenses. He was an extremely clever wordsmith. Your nation was his singular invention but he was in a catch 22 situation. The sub-cultures of slavery were in his way and yet HE and SOME of the other framers found a way to get around it. Good Trouble is coming.

First I was happy that you went to Canada like Toronto and Montreal also to BC and Calgary Alberta which I lived. Glad that you went to Banff and Jasper that is what every one should go in their lifetime. To bad that last season you couldn't go to Nova Scotia due to Covid 19. Hopefully you can go next year. If you do you will loved it. Nice videos and keep it on.

I’m a newbie to rv’ing but was impressed to visit with other RV’ers at gas stations along the route , comparing stories and making friends . What was really cool is how everyone talked about the “ Keep your Daydream” videos . Thanks for your videos

  • Great show, we are big fans! The moment has come. I was offered early retirement (March 19)and to my surprise a generous buyout. We were gonna start out in our Classic 1978 GMC motorhome. Now we will upgrade and are shopping for a Class A Tiffen! So, I'm hoping that by Mid April we start our full time RV'ing. You guys have been a great inspiration. Hopefully, we will see you on the road. Oh, and it's even more sweet because I'm a survivor of a month long Covid 19 infection. Didn't think I'd live and didn't think I would be able to Keep this Daydream, but I made it through and I have immunity! We will start a channel also. I am retiring from being a morning radio show host. :) Bryan and Mary Green
