    I have Chair envy!!!
    Pretty cool Aliner. I get asked to look into mine every campground I am at. Looks like yours has the bubble to sit at the dinette.
    I have downsized as my kids are grown and really enjoy mine.

    Thanks, it belongs to the fiance'; she wasn't going to put up with tent camping in the cold anymore. The dinette is in the front; it has two smaller bubbles up there. That rear bubble is cracked and temporarily goobed up with silicone caulk. Replacing that and a seal kit need to be done soon.

    Photo was taken New Year's Day. I know what you mean, I'd guess about half a dozen people came by to look inside. And a drunk chick jumped on the big chair and broke it about 10 minutes after we got there. It's held together with baling wire in that photo.

    Headed there this Friday. The low is 37F on Friday, so hopefully some cows will be present.

    It's a very neat place. Expect no cell service in the CG but that's a bonus to me.

    We used to camp there when I was in boy scouts 20+ years ago....

    Ticks are either horrible or non existant.... I remember one camping weekend I pulled off 17, I think the record was 33.

    Beautiful Springs, nice little run to the suwannee.

    There are MANY smaller springs in that part of the river....

    BGC I use to camp with the boy scouts there about 20 years ago too, all of the local packs would go there for the summer for about a week and learn how to set up camp and learn to swim if they already didn't know how. Small world.

    It is a small world.... I love that part of FL, we would take canoes, and spend 3-4 days floating down the river.

    What troop were you in? I was in 440 out of Ocala...

    I was there last weekend, saw no cows, but heard one out in the river, but couldn't see it since the Suwannee is "black water." It was actually hot outside and I regretted not bringing some swim trunks. I saw some BIG bream hanging out in the spring run, and some nice bass as well. That made me wish I'd brought a fishing rod
