Buy an Venturi up-stack! They are less than $140, collapsible, store in an included bag, and don't take up much room in the basement storage. On the way, we stop at Larry and Penny Thompson campground . It is a County park CG, not far off the interstate, with FHU and 50A service. Overnighting there and leaving about 8AM gets you into Sigsbee about 2-3PM.
Yes the AFEES fuel station on Sigsbee has diesel, a separate pump on the back-side of the driveway. IF you have dual fill points it's easy. If you only have a driver-side fill point you must enter the 2nd drive(entering Sigsbee) and do some tight turning. I filled up entering and exiting Sigsbee, and when returning to dry camping so I would always have diesel for running the generator when it gets hot weather.

The wife is now well, the stars are aligned and the SCUBA gear is packed. We leave for Sigsbee on 9/27 and should arrive on 10/1. We plan on staying at Ft. Bragg and NSB Kings Bay on the way down. Does anyone have any last minute suggestions or advice?

Bill if you've never stayed at Naval Station Mayport, I'd stop there for a few days on the way south. If you stop in Homestead, a lot of folks stop for the night at the Indian Casino but it's pretty hot this time of year. I'd look for a campground. We stayed in a Passport America park. Enjoy Sigsbee

The best shore dive in Floida is Blue Heron Bridge at Riviera Beach. Jonathon Dickinson State Park is a short drive away and very nice. Its worth a stop if you can get a space.

I would stop at Manatee Cove at Patrick AFB myself. Exit 188 by Cocoa Beach Florida. Was just there for the first time. Only 8 RV's there and on the water.A lot of empty spots. The base is great. Big exchange and commissary. Only 4 hours to Miami. So leaving there and heading to Keys is a nice ride.

We hope to use Manatee Cove as our first stop on the way home. We would like to try NavSta Mayport, but it will have to wait until our next trip south. We are planning on making this a 17 day trip and want 7 full days in the Keys so we are planning on making it home in 3 days.

Thanks for the input,

Bill

Well, we're back from the adventure. We left for the Keys on 9/26 and returned home on 10/12. We styed in FAMCAMPS at NSB King's Bay, NAS Key West, Patrick AFB, Naval Base Mayport and Dam Neck, VA. All the camps were excellent, but we enjoyed Sigsbee and Pelican Roost in Mayport the best. (We had waterfront sites.) Thank you all for helping me plan this trip. With this success, my wife is now considering an extended western state trip next year.
