“The Great Outdoors” RV Community

We checked into the TGO early on Thursday, and took the obligatory tour and sales pitch to qualify for our ‘one free nights' camping’.  The campsite fees here are $55/night, so with the one free night, it costs us only ~$40/night for a really nice experience.  We were in our site and on our own by 12:00pm. 

This is the entrance to the community…….

This is our “neighborhood”, and you can see Mark and Sue’s rig in the right portion of this picture, with a close-up in the next picture.

We spent more time looking at the various neighborhoods with the different home styles.  The styles range from concrete pads with small storage buildings to large $500,000 homes with an RV garage.  In between, there are large ‘ports’ for the RV to park under with a small room included to chalets, which are small homes with the RV integrated.  Here are some sample pictures…….

Our Tiffin party is Saturday from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at a Pavilion in the park.  I will post pictures of that next!

Another benefit of this location is that it is very close to the Kennedy Space Center.  There is a launch tomorrow, February 7.  Space shuttle Endeavour will deliver the final connecting node, Node 3, and the Cupola, a robotic control station with six windows around its sides and another in the center that provides a 360-degree view around the International Space Station.  There are already RV parked all over Titusville, and the highways around the launch area waiting for a glimpse of the launch.

The launch is scheduled for about 4:30am in the tomorrow morning.  We are also going to be leaving for Red Bay tomorrow.  We may get up early to watch the launch, which we can see through our windshield, and then head out.   I want to be near a city by about 3:00pm where I can get CBS on my antenna so we can watch the Super Bowl

More later…….
