Relaxing Weekend in Okeechobee, Florida - Driving to the West 2019 Preview

Show Video

Hello. Everybody on, the road again today, we're going to Okeechobee. Florida. I'm, riding. Riding. Riding, riding. In. My RV, i RV. Wherever. -. You. Guys haven't, bring in. Miami. One. Of the main purposes of this road, trip is you know it's like a shakedown cruise before. Our long. Road. Trip to the west I want, to test out my, new GPS. System. Here, I want to test our, new, hitch. We got the appropriate hitch, and so far so good and, you. Know solar panels, I put two new solar panels make, sure that I'm you know fly, off the roof or anything like that and. And. See what's going, on in the lake okeechobee. We. Haven't actually been, there. We're. Taking, i-75. North here and then we are going to merge onto us-27. We're. Averaging almost, 13. Miles per gallon at, bad that's. Bad at all. Here, around Lake Okeechobee very. Agricultural, area mainly, sugarcane, fields. That's. Lake. Okeechobee right, there. What, are the few places where you can actually see, the like the, thing with Lake Okeechobee is that it has levees, all around it so, you have to be on top of the levee or some other elevated, position, to actually see the lake and. Here. We are we, have arrived. Hello. Everybody here we are the Okeechobee. Koat first time here a, little. Bit of a tight waters but that's fine now we're gonna explore, the. Campground, and, see what but it has it has a pool it has a bunch of stuff. The. Way December. What it is at the December 29th, and it is like 85, degrees of you, welcome. To Florida. All. Right let's go to the to, the lounge and things that way this, place is huge, here we are at the shanty. Lounge. Adult. Food. The. Bar between the pool and the golf course not very busy, at this time, yes. There is supposed to be live entertainment that, night but for now we'll, just enjoy looking at the wildlife, I was. Thinking of getting into the pool but it is a little bit too crowded, for my taste this, is the kiddie pool which is actually a lot emptier, than the adults, pool so we might come to this one, but. This, one doesn't have a bar so. General. Store is here something. Smells good well yeah we later found out that the reason the kiddie pool was empty was because the heater had broken down and, they were letting the youngsters, use the adult pool that's, why it was so crowded. We're. Going to eat here at lights east fish company it has good reviews. Good, the craft beer selection, and very. Tasty, clam chowder and I'm having the catfish, Elise having the stone crab and. They have all kinds of animals on, the walls. Well. Good morning. Very. Foggy, morning, here in Okeechobee. We. Didn't really do much last. Night after, our late, lunch or early, dinner but, today we are going to explore a little bit. We're. Going over the levee on to Lake Okeechobee park, and I think it is a perfect, opportunity to fly the drone but, first let's. Walk up to the pier. The. Fog gives. It a sort of eerie, spooky. Air and, all. These spider, webs. Hopefully. The fog will lift, soon and we'll get a better view. So, many, pelicans, and, other birds as well. Hey. Gator alert. One. Of these days I'm going to learn how to fish. Well. The fog is slowly. Dissipating. I think, that would be a good time to fly the drone. Lake. Okeechobee is, really. Big, even on a clear day you wouldn't, be able to see the other side not. Even from 400. Feet above ground. It. Is the, Florida Trail. Do. It see. The rainbow in the grass. The, Morning Sun reflected. On all the do covered, spiderwebs. This, is the, florida trail, goes. Around the lake. I. Have. To further trail very nice we were walking back now of. Course but there's lake okeechobee south. And here. Looking north is the town of Okeechobee, some, fishing, boats. By, the way this is pretty much just basically a shakedown trip, and in preparation, for our upcoming trip, out west which. It's, gonna happen in three days you know test that, new hitch that I got from pro pride and, and.

Make. Sure that my solar panel solar panels for example don't fall off the roof you know when I'm going on the highway streets that kind of thing and they're. So far so good so, far so good and. Looking. Forward to driving. To the west. Into. The sunset in a. Couple of days. Let's. See what else is there to do in the in this town of Okeechobee, that doesn't seem to be a little whole lot to do here but you know it's it's. The beautiful nature of. Florida. Here and the Lake Okeechobee, behind. Me, one. Of these days not today because it is kind of warm one of these days we're gonna, we. Do like the whole around, the Lake Trail. Be cool maybe. Bike. Because. Walking, is gonna take place. Here. We are downtown. Okeechobee. Florida Flagler. Park here with this tank, and, this helicopter. Let's, face it it is not the most vibrant, downtown. I've ever seen but at least let's. Go see the tank and the helicopter. For. The tank used to be. They, removed it, well. I am not crazy, I remember, seeing a tank here in the park the last time we passed by Okeechobee. Which was what like four, years ago on our way to Orlando. I think. Can't imagine sight. Let's. Continue exploring. Now. There's the Okeechobee, historic. Battlefield. More. Research, into. This. Beware. Of the alligators. Well, yeah that's, it we, decided to return to the shanty lounge the, pool area much, less, crowded today. Beautiful. Day for the pool. It. Is truly a beautiful. Day not, a cloud in the sky a. Refreshing. Gin, and tonic and more. Wildlife. Watching. On. The, other side of the lounge the. Golf Course. Our. Friendly, Birds. Well. Here I am at the heated pool and the, temperature, is. Perfect I have no idea what it is but it's super. Purposed outside is like 81, degrees and it's pretty. Much the same temperature, in the water. 485. Degrees and there's really taking a picture of me taking a picture of myself and, but, there's that's it, it's. A shanty lounge which is the bar here. Good. Drinks and very cheap I mean it's three bucks for a gin and tonic and yesterday, was a dollar. And change for, real, England, so yeah. Very. Relaxing, weekend here in Okeechobee, for, sure. I. Have. An idea let's, go to the nearby Brighton. Seminole, casino, nearby. Being a relative, term here, since it is almost, 30, miles away but. We're, kind of running out of things to do here. After. Putting a couple of bucks in the slot machines Ely won enough money to invite me to dinner at the restaurant, mistake. Meatloaf. That. Was a great, meal, lucky. For us he won like a hundred and twenty. Dollars you, know. 150. Oh very good hundred and fifty sold so. Our. $40. Meal was. Pretty much free which. Actually. Four, dollars for what, we ate it's a, great, deal. Everything. Seems kind of cheap when you leave Miami. Another. Color around this one is actually Colorado. Cool, all. Right let's go back. In. The morning we, return, to Miami, ending. A relaxing. Weekend, and a successful, shakedown. Cruise for, many tini the, Colorado and all, the upgrades I, performed, with the upcoming, cross-country. Road trip in, mind in. Fact this. Is the last, video, filmed. In 2018. And before we go I want, to give you a quick preview of what's, coming up ahead in. The driving to the West 2019. Series. Product. I received on the mail a couple of days ago and actually very timely, and I. Got, it I, had, it shipped at my friend's, house, in Las Vegas and it, is called other clans, and then it. Is an order remover, and and you know when you live in close quarters, like a smaller view like I like mine or. Even. A larger RV you know you can have displacing. Odors that linger. For days on, end because. It is such as such a small enclosed, space on the other day I had this brilliant, idea, of cooking some fish it. Was not God but it was something similar. Stunk. It's you know, it. Smelt like fish in here for days on end actually what was in Death Valley that. I cooked it and that's. Also where I got this nice t-shirt by the way and. Incidentally. A couple of days later I had scheduled, this product, to arrive in Las Vegas and I used that era the launch was, cold in Las Vegas actually, it snowed. Two, days later I can't wait to share all those videos with you guys and, I. Notice, a laundry auditive, and additive, this, thing you put your detergent, you you have to fill up the. Washer. A little bit with water and then you put your detergent you put a things. A half a cup or it depends on the size of the load like. Half a cup for a side for a large, load and. And. It removes, all the smells it doesn't mask the smells with without like a like a like an artificial flowery. Smell it. Is. Have like zinc. Oxide, and some. Some. Stuff all, whole earth friendly, and and, natural, and it. Removes the. Smells they have this laundry, line they have a line for like pets and for. Pet products, like if you want to clean your your sofa, because you know sometimes bats also have like these.

Powders, And, and. They, have a sports line. So, you know if. This is something you're interested in it check it out I have a discount code it, is travel, 15 and you get a 15% off, whenever. You ordered this and I'm going to put the, link in the video description and, somewhere here on the, screen so, you can check it out this cold order, cleanse, and. This is the one that I get is the laundry under the additive, and. So. Far it's been great because anything. It doesn't smell like fish anymore, and that's I love, fish but I love. To eat it not the, lingering smell of fish that. Is a good thing now. Now, what I'm going to do next I'm gonna give you a quick preview of all the marvelous. Places I think two of them this road. Trip, the beginning. Of the 2019. Season which will, begin next Sunday. At first we're gonna do a video you know traveling north in Florida, they're so good songs nice, to see in Florida and we visited some places I actually, um. You. Know scenic drive with with. This traveler, fellow youtuber, and friend. And patron. Here. In the channel and then, I mean I was, going through Louisiana, and I stayed at this State Park and I said you know what I'm an hour away from New Orleans let's, go to New, Orleans for, breakfast, so, I went to New Orleans for breakfast I'm gonna show you that it was. A couple of hours but New York is this is such a unique. Iconic, city that and, I had to do it and. And. Then. Drove to the West and then in California, with it so much well in Arizona, California Nevada. Utah. We're, going to Zion National Park, in Utah that, was amazing, and then. On the way back I visited, some of that flyover. Country which is actually very nice I visited Oklahoma City, I really liked it very clean, very, Sin City and also Little, Rock Arkansas and I, really, liked Little Rock Arkansas it's actually probably what a place where I could leave in at. Some point you, know it's a it's a nice clean the. Relatively quiet city very. Nice and, well. That's that and. I. Hope. You have enjoyed all my 2018. Videos and in 2019, I promise you it's gonna be great. Until. Next time thank you so much for watching. Let's. See, the. Real. Riding. In my RV. Wherever. I want. And. Guys, I'm bring, it. By. RVM.

Yeah, it's not the most vibrant downtown you've ever seen... but isn't that the point of going to these places? You want everywhere you go to be like Miami? "Not the most vibrant place" is just the kind of place I look for when I get out of town. In fact "No Signal" would be perfect! Love your videos.

You've got a point, but sometimes something "in the middle" is preferred.

I'm on my way to Daytona this weekend to see the motorcycle flat track races and spend a couple days in the sun myself. Hope that nice weather waits for me to get there.

Sitting near my wood stove watching the snow fall enjoying your video.

Keep it up, REALLY enjoy watching and cant wait for the Road to the East videos :D :D

nice video my friend ! I looked very peaceful yet very boring there

Cant wait for your driving to the west movies!

How come you did not purchase a truck with built in GPS?

Those are usually clunky, and after living for a few months with Chevrolet head unit, I can only imagine how horrible their GPS system must be.

Live in fort Perice, work in Chobee once or twice a month, there isn’t much to do there if your in your 20’s.

OH, I'm in my late 40's and there's not much to do either except relax and play golf

Great vid Robert, that rv park was way too crowded. It was still fun to watch.

The tank was being sandblasted

Robert, the ending to this video was four stars along with how you did the music made me a little emotional., well done sir.. I can't wait to see what is to come... Thank you..

That looks rough! Not like the single digit temps and snow here in paradise (Chicago.)

Robert... Niceeee video... Will see u soon in Vegas.

wow Robert... Look at that views! You nail it!! Great video...

We used to winter there. Leased a spot for 6 months. It was located on the main channel. PJs RV resort. Spent the summer months touring the US. Returned to Okeechobee when it got cold. Wish I was there right now.

Wherever I want to be! :)

I love your videos. They are so great!! We live in up in Jacksonville.

Fly pelican fly!

I just spent the weekend at that KOA, and biked on top of the dike for a few miles. That tank that they removed was a M60a3, I just found it was gone too.

You make me relax :)

Have you named your Colorado. Just curious.

Not really... just "The Colorado" for now

My husband says he like to have an IPA with you. As soon as I put your videos on he begins whistling to your opening song, "Riding in my RV"! LOL!!

White vinegar is also good for removing foul oders.

Great video can’t wait for more.

Gracias Señor Robert, espero ver la nueva serie del verano 2019.

Bunny! Now you are selling Laundry Additive???? WTH

Robert, if your west coast trip includes central California, check out the California Delta. Great place to RV! Lake Okeechobee reminds me of it - minus the alligators.

nice video, I'll b waiting ALMOST patiently for the next video........lol

Do plan to go to Lake Placid and Sebring. Highlands Hammock State Park is pretty popular.

I was camping at a ACE(Army Corps of Engineers) camp grounds in TN last summer and one of the camp hosts said he is a camp host during the winter at the KOA you are at and he said it is the largest KOA in USA and possibly the largest camp ground in USA.

Robert, love your narration and editing, music also is super ! you keep us tuned in.

Al día de hoy cuál es la condición de estas playas ya que tu video fue hecho en Diciembre?

Everything is cheaper when you leave Dade

Robert I gotta say I always give you credit on your expert videos with subject matter, quality of video, shot selection, videography skills on how to zoom & pan with the right amount of speed & timing BUT your choice of music is just as phenomenal.....I like how you transition your music & I like your choice of music for the selected scene.....I was wondering do you actually choose a certain tempo of music with a particular video segment or do you just throw this song at this point & another song at that point????

welcome to Okeechobee

Silly me I didn't realize this was a throwback video from December 29th...

Yes !!!!!! another traveling Robert video, AWESOME as usual.....however why didnt you record in 1080p@60fps?????

Beautiful ending on this vid,,thank you for bringing us along..

‘The West is the Best’ as sung by one famous musician...

Brian Mast has some good stuff going on as far as cleaning up the Lake, so the estuaries through the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie are no longer affected by run off, chemicals, and big agriculture. Thankfully, laws are being passed now. Maybe that will be the start to actually help to reinvigorate downtown Okee! It could be the cutest little jewel. Thanks, Robert and Illie!

Thanks for the odor Klein’s info, we can’t find products to remove smells of cologne fabric softener etc, my wife has hyper chemical sensitivity and our clothing gets saturated in public places. We either have to air it out for days or weeks before washing to get it to a place that doesn’t agitate her chemical allergies. Thank you Robert will check it out.

Thanks Robert. It's been a fun year of videos!

Awesome video and preview!

Great to see you getting back on the road regularly! I've been past the lake but have never stopped. Beautiful wildife! Are there that many attacks by alligators on trails there? Just wondering after seeing the signage. Great drone footage. Expansive area. Looking forward to the footage going west! Safe travels

Howdy Robert,thanks a lot for sharing yet another brilliant video here which i watched with great pleasure and full attention as usual.No need to point out I am now anxiously looking forward to your upcoming videos on your journey to the west, pal.Always a real treat to the eye and ear surely.Best wishes and cordial greetings from William in Bruges,Belgium,Europe

Thanks for sharing!! I loved the ending with the song and recap of your trip

Spider condos... I think that was an anti-aircraft gun turret.

Very nice campground. I am not very far from there. Too bad that I didn't know that you were around.

I really enjoy when you explore the beaches around the south and the east. You help me with ideas for my trips! Be safe!!

Nice as usual

Excellent video today.

I'm getting ready to watch this now!

Ah the good life, you got it made Robert and I enjoy your freedom with you Thanks (Like that lively upgrade of the theme song)

Another great video Mr. Traveling Robert. Cant Wait to see whats coming in 2019. Thank You So much keep up the good work. Randy C.

i remember climbing on those tanks when i was young

Maybe your viewers would enjoy my video-Great Smoky Mountains https://youtu.be/cZbIh-hMe7M

Only 90 days till I move back to Fl, ready for warmer weather again

Life of Brian it’s been pretty warm already here. Last week it was pushing 90! We are kinda ready for the warmer weather too. More camping!!!

And they have good music too! "T.S.O.P." by MFSB was playing while you were in the pool! It was the theme for "Soul Train" in the 70's

I enjoy your videos, thanks for sharing.

if you come to Oregon, MUST visit us...OVER THE EDGES of BORING, OREGON...we have a beautiful spot for your RV, Our physical address is Eagle Creek, OR. Our view is breathtaking WHEN its not pouring rain, which is always raining. We have a 29 ft Cougar, pull with our Tundras...we have 2 Tundras...but for sure, you MUST....MUST.....MUST.....MUST stay on Sauvie Island, at Reeder Beach RV park...and park on the Colombia River Front...can watch huge cargo ships passing by about less than 200 ft...it rattles your bones whenever they pass by...LOVE it there, must make reservations now as they're very popular. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCv-NvC8bG0

Great video! I always enjoy watching your journeys!

When I was a kid I went to Okeebogee. But it is in Iowa. Also a lake.

Excited for the driving to west 2019 videos. Thank you for doing what you do Robert left you a like.

Wow Robert, you traveled quite extensively out West. In your podcast you covered some observations regarding your Chevrolet Colorado. Were you thinking of doing something similar with your YouTube channel, maybe go into reliability and maintenance as well?

That's a good idea. Thanks. I probably will go into some of that.

Hmmmm... Lake Okeechobee not a friend of us who have homes in SWFL. Will still like to get to lake O to do some fishing though.

nice campgrounds..u should play the golf course there

Love your videos your living a great life .

WOW!!!! That's is tight spot for the rv, So did the neighbor have to pull in there awing ???

Always super cool videos, thanks for taking the time Rob.

Can't wait to see your Journey to the west.

Thx for the video Robert. Love to have a beer with u one day. On are way west right now, see u on the road.

Nice cover on truck Robert

Sunday morning coffee watching Robert! Thanks buddy!!! Was just talking about Okeechobee with my Wife yesterday and how they plan on making it 10.5 feet deeper...

New driving to the West!! I can not wait! Thank you for your videos!!

Robert you are the Best I LOVE YOU and GOD LOVES YOU TO

Good morning Robert

Who like the intro

Great stuff, thanks Robert.

Outstanding!!!!!

Can't wait!!

Gooooood morning Robert. Thank you for the new video. We enjoy them immensely. Have a great day, and remember, fly pelican, fly!

I enjoy it !.

Im out west in July myself, camping in Oregon!

Thanks for your video. What kind of GPS did you get.

It is the Rand McNally RVND7 http://travelingrobert.com/technorv

Thank you for those amazing videos! From a big fan of them. :)

So glad to see this video!

Man...those were tight quarters at the KOA huh?...I know they are necessary evils at times but I'm NOT a fan of RV parks/resorts. Way too crowded for my taste.

Way too expensive also!!

I don't like those types of RV parks anymore

Can't wait to watch announced videos! Thank you for interesting stories and excellent views!

wow!,..looks so nice!,.its freezing here,single digits for lows this coming week!,..tho i,ve lived all over florida in the past,..i never made to lake okeechobee,..nice vid! thank you Robert!

Robert, just curious, is your drone registered with the FAA ? Did you go through the Part 107 training and testing to get your commercial operators permit which is needed by federal law if you use drone footage in your videos and monetize your videos.......

Growing up in Minnesota, land o 10,000 lakes, fishing was second nature. I was astonished to hear you say you had to learn how. It's easy.

I guess I've just never gotten around to it :-)

I have been to Florida with my family members in 2010 and Key West was so beautiful, nice video, Thank you~ From South Korea

Thank you!

Been watching your videos how I learned about the castle in Florida New channel here can you give me some pointers that you have learned along the way or maybe do a video for people like me stating off Thanks keep on truckin

I am actually looking forward to the videos Robert, I start my week's vacation on March 13th, and I don't have to be back to work till March 23rd, so that gives me 10 days to watch any and all videos that you're going to post. I definitely look forward to them unless of course I get my settlement in which case I'll be coming to Florida and won't have time to watch videos, so I guess I'll let you know either way.

Dam! That campground RV parking SUCKS! I would never stay there even if it was FREE! You can see the Class A large screen TV in your bedroom! Don't go there!

13 MPG is really good. How heavy is your trailer?

Very good. Now I am waiting "going to the West" Congrats...>>>

damn it,! Robert i was just there in the area all wk end, kept my eyes open for your rig. Wanted to meet you. By the way, where did all the sunshine come from as it was the most rainy , cloudy week i have been in down there. Left for Alabama , stayed in a park and left right before those tornadoes hit. Just got back to Michigan tonight, weather is crap here also. thinking of packing up and leaving out west in couple days. Im gonna hunt you down one of these trips to say hi. When will you be leaving for west again? New mexico ,Arizona, and Nevada are on the list for me.

I'm not leaving until late spring. San Antonio rally and then VidCon in Los Angeles, and from there we'll see

You have an interesting accent where are you from if you don't mind me asking?

I was born in Cuba

It’s crazy how close people are at the rv parks. I bought an rv to get away from people lol.

Yes, this one was a little tight

I like your channel Robert. Are we going to see more of your gal in 2019?

Awesome

Drone barrel roll at 6:16.....nice flying! LOL Love the emphatic singing at the end of the video. Very nice and beautiful voice! Thanks for the videos. Jim.

19:42 nice song

13 miles/gallon?

Another great video!

When we had our travel trailer, we also used a pro-pride hitch and we loved it. It was worth the investment. Made a huge difference it towing. I think you will be very happy with it. Hey check out this guy's video on black and gray tank maintenance. Very thorough and informative. It will also take care of any odors and fix tank sensors just through using his very simple method. So worth checking out. Save you money also. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUWGlm2gQfE&t=578s Wishing you all the best and safe travels!!

+Traveling Robert That is not good to hear. Perhaps you should of considered a Ford F150. Excellent videos none the less!

Unfortunately it’s 22 here this morning way too cold for Texas

John, not 10.5 feet deeper, they want to lower the lake level to 10.5 feet above sea level.

Now that you have the Colorado any thoughts of getting one of the new Winnebago Micro Minnie 5th Wheels designed for "mid-size" trucks? I enjoy watching your videos, please keep up the good work. Hoping to buy a new RV this year, sold the last one I had three years ago, want to finally get out west and see all of that! :)

+Traveling Robert There is so many good options to choose from now. I was liking the Winnebago Views a year ago, but not leaning toward a new pick up and trailer (was just looking at truck campers for fun too). But my current fav's are the newest version of the Rockwood 2011S, and I do like some of the Eagle HT 5th wheels now too, but not really sure I want something that big right now. Almost too many options too choose from....it can drive you crazy trying to compare and decide! LOL

Probably not. Unless Winnebago gives me an offer I can't refuse... highly unlikely, I will probably keep Minitini for a while. I have made so many upgrades that anything else they have would be a downgrade. Now we are looking into a B+, but who knows what the future will bring.

Excellent video. You do a really good job. I definitely don't have enough nerve to cook fish in my RV. Lol!!

Oderklenz, do they make soap that I can use in the shower?

Can’t wait to see your next batch of videos!

Coming soon

Robert is that you signing ! I love it.

Yes it is

YAY Okeechobee!!...you passed directly in front of both my Family's Campgrounds on your route. We are on the water and 3 miles before the KOA (at 5:50 when you show the Alligator you notice the radio tower in the background - my family's Parks are just before and just after that tower). You made a great choice choosing the Lightseys restaurant (they just relocated there 2years ago). They used to be located a few miles to the West on Hwy 78 directly where the Kissimmee River connects into the Lake (you passed it when you went to Brighton Indian Reservation). Congratulations Ileana for winning the $150...I also had similar luck my 1st time there was $220 after just 15mins playing...I ate then left too :-). Both their restaurant and family have been featured on many TV networks. The restaurant has a very interesting story and started from very humble beginnings, originally just helping at the local boat ramp and then creative in how they grew from that. They have a very interesting story and recognized in contributions to the history around Okeechobee. Alot of fun memories there, and always great place to eat. Next time you pass by I recommend you also try Parrot Island restaurant and Cowboys BBQ. You mentioned the 'tank' at 10:46...the answer is they removed it a couple months ago for restoration and rebuilding, so the tank will be back soon when they finish the makeover. at 11:50 you visited the Okeechobee Historic Battlefield...they have a dedicated group of people who perform reenactments each year during the last week of February. I like the teaser video at the end of this video. Thanks for making & sharing. Keep up the great work! Your channel has really grown and improved.

Thank you! I'll make it back to Okeechobee, probably next winter

Looking forward to your traveling West videos. I see you just posted one.

+Traveling Robert oops I missed the part at the end that says then West lol. Well we will have to enjoy that one in the meantime. We really enjoy your videos here in Pittsburgh especially my 9 year old son!

Un exitazo su canción in my RV felicidades

Gracias

Sounds like a nice little trip! That KOA looks awful for my tastes. I've always said I dont want to camp at a place where I can't even open up my awning. Love your vids!

KOA camping grounds are very nice. We stayed at a KOA in Tusan Arizona. Their food at the Restraunt was very good. Their RV space wasn’t as tight as this.

Southern Arizona

Traveling Robert where’s the Gila Bend?

In my experience KOA's vary greatly. The one in Gila Bend is pretty nice too

Next time you go there, go to the south end of the lake in Pahokee. There's a little gem of a "campground" run by the city. You would call there to make a RSVN. They have an awesome restaurant and bar with live outside band, a chilled pool, pool table and other outdoor games and a bike trail along the lake. No town to go to or anything, but a nice area to relax and never crowded. I think they just remodeled or are remodeling it all now. Guy Harvey used to own it I believe.

I began watching bc we were retiring and going to buy an RV. But I recently was told I have lung cancer. I continue to watch bc it's relaxing and I enjoy it. Keep up the inspiring work! God bless.

Roberto, what kind of camper do you recommend for someone just starting the nomadic lifestyle? I am a genuine rookie and know nothing!

...opps meant to say Rockwood 2511S

the music accompanying the video super duper excellent, too!!!

Thanks Robert for this fantastic trip...

WERE YOU BEEN ROBERT YOU HAVE NOT PUT ANYTHING ON HERE FOR SOME TIME NOW. HAVE YOU QUIT YOU TUBE??????

+Traveling Robert OK BRING IT ON BUDDY. NOTHING ELSE GOOD ON YOU TUBE BUT YOURS.

No, I have some good stuff coming up

How much to stay at that KOA Robert?

That was about $80 per night. Not cheap.

I want to watch all yours 2019 videos and give you hundreds of likes however, for this to happen I need you to take care of yourself better! You drink too much and eat too much junk and processed food! Watch out! I need you to get to yours 150 years of age along with me! Robert, eat healthier and stop drinking!

Thank you. I'll check it out

Hope you beat that cancer and travel

Something like what I have will probably be a good entry level camper.

i like your videos and your trip father... keep it up

Robert a suggestion: you might find it fun and interesting to travel north on I75 all the way to northern Michigan and the Canadian border. Returning to Florida either on US27 or US23. Both start in northern Michigan. Or for an adventure take US31 from northern Michigan to Mobile. Travel safe.

Driving to the west, i'm excited for the Zions footage.

Me too :-)

I just discovered your channel and I have been binge watching. I really enjoy the keys videos especially. Your theme song has been running they my head all morning...

Thank you, and welcome!

I will visit lake Okeechobee area next time when I visit in Florida, maybe Christmas season in 2019 from Detroit. and then I will upload the road trip videos as well... thanks for sharing your video foe the lake Okeechobee, Fl.

Thanks, Robert!

Well, turned out it was not cancer. I suffered a pulmonary embolism (blood clots in lung). Same symptoms. Had a mass on lung in cat scan but wasn't cancer! Long recovery but I'm alive. Thank GOD! I appreciate your kind comments. Be safe in your travels.

Love western Michigan along the lake.

Holy moly ,which literally was a steal! atm were paying 5,60$ per gallon over here. that's why Germany's designing cars which are economical on fuel

In the 90's I paid as little as 87 cents per gallon of gas. THAT was ridiculously cheap gasoline.

J Shepard it's shockingly high. I guess two thirds of the price is tax and some moronic Green Party supporters think that's still too cheap, lol

+Scotchgod Yeah, there's a direct relationship between fuel price and their motivation to get good gas mileage. I wonder how much of that high price is tax.

I lived in Los Angeles California before, so when I moved here to Chicago. I drove the whole route 66 now 40

Cool

I drove from Bradenton to Miami by that route

Okeechobee is My Home! I Love Okeechobee!

Hot (94 degrees) will make even a KOA easier to deal with if the electricity is dependable

I live here and you make it look better then it is

@Traveling Robert OK BRING IT ON BUDDY. NOTHING ELSE GOOD ON YOU TUBE BUT YOURS.

@Traveling Robert There is so many good options to choose from now. I was liking the Winnebago Views a year ago, but not leaning toward a new pick up and trailer (was just looking at truck campers for fun too). But my current fav's are the newest version of the Rockwood 2011S, and I do like some of the Eagle HT 5th wheels now too, but not really sure I want something that big right now. Almost too many options too choose from....it can drive you crazy trying to compare and decide! LOL

@Traveling Robert That is not good to hear. Perhaps you should of considered a Ford F150. Excellent videos none the less!

The tank is back!!! It was out getting repainted!!

Good to know

Robert thanks so much for a beautiful view of this beautiful Lake. And for all the crybabies on the coas,t well stay away. I love this area and so glad you gave us a view of this marvelous lake.

Great video I live in okeechobee and you are not crazy there was a tank there and its back in its spot they took it away to do some maintence on the tank to keep it looking good

I gotta go back :-)
