RV Boo Boos are the main subject of this show. First though, we give an update on the I-75 road closure in Tennessee. Both southbound and one northbound lane are now open according to the State Department of Transportation website, http://www.tn.gov/tdot .

Next we talk all about our trip to the town of Tarpon Springs. Located at the northernmost part of Pinellas county above Tampa, Tarpon Springs was the largest sponge operation in the entire country in the 1920’s. Most of that has been replaced by foreign competition, but the docks remain along with much of the Greek heritage that made the town what it is today. We stopped first at one of the 4 visitor centers, this one near the city marina and sponge docks. Call them at 727 937-8028 for more information. We’ll do a blog post with many pictures.

We start the RV Boo Boos section with a detailed account of how one RVer handled dropping his 5th wheel trailer on the bed of his pick-up truck. He went into a lot of detail on how it happened, how they handled the aftermath, and how they fixed the truck.

Next we recount many of the stories told in a thread on the Living the RV Dream Facebook group all about RV Boo Boos. There were stories of showering while driving, sliding out of the bed after a sudden stop, and many others that were funny only after the fact. There are a lot of lessons learned here.
