We're booked into a site near Daytona for a month beginng 9/1. Since it looks like the hurricane will be upon us, we're considering rescheduling to the 20th. But then how much different will that be?
Traveling 1100 miles to be blown and rained on kinda stinks.

Really disappointed since this is the only time we've been able to squeek out all summer.

Any advice from you Floridians? We really don't want to go anywhere else. Maybe the RV will have to go back in the barn for the winter sad.gif sad.gif

In June 2005 we were near the Mobile, AL, when the first hurricane of the season was on a direct hit course with that area. The national news was telling everyone to evacuate, but the locals were saying there was no need to leave, so we stayed. The winds only got up to Cat 1 speed, and fortunately our site was not under any trees that might have fallen on us, so we did just fine. It really was not that scary, although we did bring our slides in, mostly so that the slide covers would not flap and tear up. Truthfully, we have been in worse storms here in Texas. All that said I would not advise trying to stay for anything higher than a Cat 1. I think it would start to get dangerous at that point. BTW, this was the same year that Katrina hit New Orleans 3 months later, and Iím really glad we left before that.
