The weather has been GREAT!!! We are having an amazing time with our fellow Tin Can Tourist members. It has been a very interesting event. This has been a great time to catch-up with old friends and meet some new ones as well. We are so very envious of those who full time in their vintage travel trailers. On Thursday we took it easy for the most part. In the afternoon we explored the Koreshan settlement on the Estero River. Then we did a mini pre-tour of the open house. This gave each owner an opportunity to give us a run down on the history of their trailers, the restoration they have done and what is in their future. Tim and I spent the evening at the settlement where all the vintage trailers are parked. Since we are not vintage we are camped out in the campground within the state park.

As to where The Wymers are . . .
For those of you who guessed Kenansville, Florida ... WRONG. But for those who guessed Estero, Florida ... Ding ding ding ... You guessed correctly and for your efforts will receive a Christmas card in the mail soon.
We are at the Koreshan Unity Settlement which is now a state park. The drive down was easier than expected. By taking the back roads most of the way here it took a little longer but the scenery was much better. Located in snow bird country Koreshan lies between Ft Myers and Naples. The park is just off Corkscrew Road. The Koreshans believed that the universe existed within a giant sphere. We are here to meet up with the Tin Can Tourists who will be hosting a vintage RV show at the settlement this Saturday. Until then we have a just a few things to attend.
Upon arriving we are next to a row of six other Airstreams. We are not sure if they are a part of a local rally or caravan. Once settled into our camp site we took off for some seafood. The Florida stone crabs, oysters & grouper were the best at Rhodes Fish Market in Bonita Springs. When we returned to camp we had a lovely camp fire to finish off the night.
Now this morning consisted of the amazing camp coffee and a twist on Big Al's Famous Waffles ... Oh no she didn't ... Oh yes she did ... Brownie waffles for breakfast!!!

We will be heading south
Birds flock here for the winter
Our arrival will be prior to sunset this evening
Spanish explorers and pirates once sailed the coast here
We will be among two groups
For one group we will display a tin can on the hood of the truck to show we belong
The other group, a utopian community, has no more followers and they believed that the entire universe existed within a giant, hollow sphere
There will be seafood nearby
We will be next to a spring fed river
It will take a “corkscrew” to get us there
BIG hint . . . 26°26.0′N 81°49.0′W
Keep the guesses coming. Come back to this blog daily for our updates and to find out where we are while on this expedition:

We are still at home and after many painful hours of switching over to my new MacBook Pro . . . I have finally completed the task of compiling my photographs from our summer trip to Alumapalooza (at the Airstream factory) last month. These photos include all of our stops along the way. Please, if you have a moment, go to the following link to view the hundreds of photos I was not able to include in this travel blog . . .
If you are having problems with the link . . . just go to flickr.com and search for my photos under Wymer4249. I hope to post most of my photos on this site in the future. I'll keep you posted on when we get the next trips finalized.
