Took a trip down to Crystal Springs FL (about an hour north of Tampa on the left coast) in the bus a couple weeks ago. Thought I would post some pics. If you've never been, it's a place where manatees come in from the sea during winter to stay warm. Sometimes you can swim with them. Pretty cool place. We kayaked, snorkeled and enjoyed the beaches. We didn't see any manatees close up but we saw a couple a little ways off.

Not sure if you can make out the vehicle behind us but it's a HERO. The ones that assist motorist who have broken down. The HERO followed us for a good 10 miles. I was hoping this wasn't the universe giving me a sign. Thankfully, we didn't need it.



The bus did great (for the most part) on the trip. Averaged about 17mpg during mostly 60ish driving. I've got a problem with the oil pressure/temps. Every so often it's like the oil relief valves stuck and the pressure goes south and the temps climb. Then, it all goes back to normal. Weird.





It's always funny when we stay at the RV parks. They don't have any idea what to do with us. FYI: find a camping place that has tent camping with power hook ups. It's cheaper than an RV spot.

kayaking at the springs




We snorkeled the 2nd day at crystal springs. Pretty cool swimming in a fresh water spring.



The great thing about a bus is anytime you need to stop...you have all the comforts of home Smile



Here I am contemplating the meaning of life (or just hoping the bus bus starts Smile



it's pretty hard to locate a bus at the beach Smile

Thanks for posting about your trip Greg.

It is hard to find you in the beach picture, except for the chalky white legs, the giant-like height, and the ever present sombrero. Laughing Kinda like 'Where's Waldo' only different.

Seriously, thanks. I like nothing more than reading about people's adventures in their buses.
