The Women's RV Forum GTG

Hillsborough River State Park, Florida


Mrs. Phred wanted to attend a get together (GTG) of women who discuss camping, gas mileage, black water odors and other mysteries on a social media URL called the Women's RV Forum.


The old Women's RV Forum was run by a man who ticked off the women. They all jumped ship and set up their own forum, which just goes to show....


There is a lovely 3.5 mile hiking trail here that runs along the river. It's called the "Florida Trail". Sometimes you can see gators here but thy're not as thick as at Myakka. They also rent bicycles and canoes and have a snack bar and big swimming pool.


The first night I cook up a big pot of chicken thighs and yellow rice for the potluck. I add onions and garlic salt for taste and green peas and pimentos for aesthetic value.


On night two I make a gigantic lasagna with hamburger, Italian sausage, ricotta cheese, sauteed onions, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and other good spices. On night three Mrs. Phred bakes cookies for dessert....talk about comfort food.... I weighed in two pounds heavier this morning than when I arrived...


These are the knees of cypress trees on the "Florida Trail".


There are lots of women here for the GTG. Some of them drag along a useless appendage such as myself...


There goes Mrs. Phred down the trail.


We'll be heading back to Sarasota today. It's 80 miles further south. A bitter cold front swept though yesterday and it only got up to 65 F during the day....
