Hoping that each and everyone of you had a bright start to 2014 – we sure are glad to usher it in ourselves, and it’s off to a great start!
We arrived on the 20th to Cedar Key, got a bit settled in and then immediately took off about 2 hours south of here to spend Christmas with Chris’ parent. My mom also drove over from Melbourne to join up. Cedar Key makes a great winter base camp for us with family close enough for visits.
When we returned, we had bicycles delivered from Walmart for just $69/each. We’re not quite ready to invest in what we ultimately want – nice full sized folding bikes that we can keep in one of our bays (which will also require some shuffling of stuff around). So this will be a great solution for our 2-month stay here to have transportation around town. We’ll just donate or sell them closer to our departure.
My mom then followed us up to Cedar Key to join in with the RVer fun for New Years!
There’s been a variety of activities put together within our little NuRVer group:
Side note – See that amazing white hanging glowing light in many of our night shots above? Wanting some better outdoor lighting options, I found the Ivation LED Dimmable USB-recharable Lantern on Amazon and asked Santa for one.
We absolutely love this thing – it’s the perfect high tech camping lantern and creates a beautiful glowing light! It’s definitely been added to our recommended Mobile Gear!
It’s already been an amazing time here in Cedar Key with our community of fellow RVers, and it’s just beginning!
It’s quite the group that has found their way here – both folks who let us know they were joining up with us, and quite a collection of folks who made their way here on their own. It’s wonderful to be part of a community for a while. We just have to learn to pace ourselves so we can keep up with it all!
One last thing… this Saturday afternoon, we’ll be hosting our next video chat from Cedar Key with a live studio audience!
Live Video Chat – Saturday, Jan 4 – 3pm EST

Join us and our live studio audience here in Cedar Key for a live video webcast where we’ll overview LFP for RV house systems and update on the status of our our bank (we’re running a full array of capacity tests this week in preparation).
We’ll have a Q&A afterwards – first focused on LFP, then a general one if there’s time.
