Wild monkeys in Florida??? Yes, and it is a crazy story! πŸ’¦ The Silver River has always been a huge tourist attraction due to the beautiful crystal clear springs that feed it. 🐡 A tour boat operator over 100 years ago thought it would be neat to order monkeys to place on a small island in the Silver River as part of the tour. πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ The problem? The rhesis macaque monkeys he ordered could swim! πŸ’ The monkeys spread out along the Silver River and multiplied to about 400 monkeys living in the area today. Monkey sightings are hit or miss, but we got really lucky and saw them at Silver Springs State Park. πŸ“Our post tomorrow will have tips on how to see the monkeys! ❓Have you ever seen the Silver Springs monkeys? Or is this on your bucket list? πŸ‘‰ For more travel and RVing tips, check out TheAdventureDetour.com β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🚐 Our family has RVed full-time for 7 years across 42 states.

I sometimes see full-time RVers sharing what this lifestyle costs which is such helpful information! πŸ‘β€οΈ But I often see something really IMPORTANT and EXPENSIVE accidentally left out: RV repairs and maintenance. ‼️ πŸ’― Honestly, there are a lot of unexpected expenses that pop up monthly. It’s best to have a budget category for repairs, maintenance, or unexpected expenses. I promise you will be glad you have this in your budget so you aren’t blind sided. πŸ‘‰ It helps to look at FT RVer budgets over a longer time period to get a feel for unexpected expenses. We have shared ours monthly on here for the last year that you can view! ❓Do you currently budget for RV repairs? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🚐 Our family has RVed full-time for 7 years across 42 states.

πŸ’― There is never a boring day RV traveling. This day will never be forgotten! A service engine light on the truck turned into the Chevy dealership pulling out a huge black snake that got caught up in the fan belt. 🐍 Now that is something you don’t see everyday! The wild thing is that we weren’t even camping in the woods. We were at an urban KOA right next to the interstate.πŸ˜‚ I actually felt terrible for the poor snake. ❓Do you love all the crazy things you see and have happen while traveling?

Where is the best place to paddle in Florida? πŸ›Ά Our favorite is Silver Springs State Park. 🐠 It has a dedicated paddle trail with no motorized boats. The crystal clear water feels like you are in an aquarium with tons of turtles, fish, and also a few alligators sunning on the shore.😬 πŸ“Œ Other great paddle locations in Florida are: 1️⃣ Mangroves of the Everglades 2️⃣ Intracoastal Waterway near the Jupiter Inlet 3️⃣ Kings Landing ❓Have you been paddling in Florida?

3 Amazing Spots To See Manatees In Florida 🌴 Finding wild manatees in Florida is a huge thrill! They are beautiful gentle giants. πŸ₯Ά Manatees flock into warmer rivers and springs from the ocean on cold days. Your best chance to see them is on days where the high temp is low 60s or lower. 🏝 The rivers (except for near ocean inlets) in Florida are naturally dark water due to high tannin content and it makes it hard to view wildlife. πŸ“ Your best bet for clear water manatee viewing is in one of Florida’s natural springs. Here are 3 great places to see them: 1️⃣ Blue Spring State Park (Orange City, Fl) 2️⃣ Homosassa Springs State Park 3️⃣ Three Sisters Springs (expensive) ❓Have you seen a manatee, or is it on your travel bucket list? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🚐 Our family has RVed full-time for 7 years across 42 states.
