Thanks for the kind words and we live in Hernando Co., Fl. and secured everything at our home, barns and land before heading out on Wed. We decided to stay in Sevierville, Tn. at Two Rivers Landing RV Resort until we knew we could go back home. God bless all of you and our prayers go out to everyone also.
We're still in Pennsylvania waiting for power restoration, etc. in Florida. I hope others were as lucky as we are. Somewhat difficult to get detailed damage reports as many of our neighbors have evacuated. The Jax property is still without power but in good shape. The Fort Myers park model surprisingly has power restored and looks like it may have very little damage. Our prayers for those that have flooding and extensive damage.
Today 9-20-17 the exchange at NASKW sigsbee reopened, all can get their mail now since 9-6-17 1900 order to evac, all non mission essential were ordered back to mainland by both commander NASKW and Monroe county sheriff Rick Ramsey.
It was explained to me that the commander is expected to address reopening sigsbee campground on 9-21-17?
We arrived home yesterday and thankfully very little damage. Our roof blew off of our well house (painted GO ARMY on it as Army National Guard flies over our area) and some fencing blew down. Not many homes in our area and got electricity back a few days before we got home. We have no trees on our property but driving home on the roads near our property we saw huge trees and limbs piled up on each side of the road as we were told 85MPH winds ripped over parts of Hernando Co. Pictures from the Keys are shocking and look like a third world country and it will take a very long time for restoration. Prayers and volunteering are in the works...............................
I'm actually looking to tent camp at Sigsbe so an update would be wonderful. Was supposed to leave Jersey on 15 Sept but thought better of it. Don't know any in the area and have found it difficult to get answers as to the campground re-opening so thought I would try here. I understand that many have suffered greatly and my issue is way down on the list or priority but, I sure would like to put some of my money into the local economy.
I saw an aerial shot somewhere that showed Sigsbee fared well. The boats on trailers looked normal. I read on the NAS KW Facebook site that a few of the houses were hit hard (I think 9, but not positive). As I posted somewhere else the base posted a little while ago: "Please make special note: All lodging facilities including the campground, vacation rentals and NGIS are being used to support displaced active duty and DoD civilian employees impacted by the storm until further notice. No space A or recreational lodging is available. We will return to regular business as soon as possible, however taking care of our active duty and DoD civilian families impacted (some have lost almost everything) and our recovery/restoration efforts to the base are our priorities at this time."

Makes sense to me. The GG is recreational housing, even if some folks live there full time.
