Spoiler Alert: We do not get eaten by gators on the swamp tour.
Now that we are fulltime in the RV we leave Florida for New Orleans but stop in the swamp along the way!
Fin gets her first chance to drive the RV on a park road in Florida. I chose a single lane road for her to learn on because why not make it difficult? Behind the scenes, after this first driving attempt, Fin doesn’t touch the steering wheel again until months later. (We’ll see if she edits this interesting fact out.)
Finally, we booked a swamp tour at Gulf Coast Gator in Mississippi on our way to New Orleans. There, we learned important info about alligator conservation as well as the fact they really like to eat marshmallows. Who knew?
We found out about Gulf Coast Gator through our participation in Harvest Hosts!
Before this episode we boondock for the first time in Florida.
After this episode we make our way to New Orleans.
Some say Diemer was raised by wolves. Others claim the spirits of the forest played a part. Most however, would agree that he was raised by his parents in a house.
A living oddity, he is one of the few living men who can legally drive a Class A dump truck but also knows why you’d pay more for a full canvas suit.
While blessed with many useless gifts, he is not a man without weakness. To this day he is unable to throw a baseball or “pigskin” in front of others without fear of ridicule.
