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

I am a native Floridian and have been through this many times. Don't even look at any local type news. They want the hurricane to hit them so they can get face time on national TV. Look at the internet for predictions and models. National Hurricane Center is great. Google hurricane model for a series of models. We leave in our Class A if one is threatening, There is no reason to fear this one in the Daytona area. The surf will be up. If you are in high winds, be sure to put your slides in and have a good book. Hurricanes travel at about 10 to 12 mph and if an evacuation is called, they will turn both sides of the expressway away from it. Keep your water, fuel and propane tanks near full and enjoy the lack of crowds due to the people not as smart as you.
