Some of Our Favorites We all have stories to share about totally unexpected things we've seen when traveling around North America in an RV. Some are natural, others unnatural, and a few are downright weird. 📷 Here's a Wanderlodge FC named RUBY. She seemed to follow us with her eyes as we passed by. Rude? 📷 Yup, that's Tom Swift's grave. RIP. 📷 What's wrong with this campsite? Hint: there's no RV or tent. Hmmm. 📷 An elderly gentleman who told us he takes a daily dip in this spring-fed stream no matter how cold it gets. The water stays 72F year round, but air temp was only 50F when we snuck this snap. Brrrr. 📷 And here's a warning sign located just 20 yards from where that adventurous elderly gentleman entered the water. Every day. 📷 Riding a bike trail one day, we came across this 50 foot tree wrapped top to bottom in spiraling vines. Never seen anything like it. 📷 This squirrel occupied a fence post in our campsite when we sat outside. It sat there and watched us. For a very long time. Creepy. 📷 📷 Came across this giant pickup truck hauling a purple tractor. Note the tractor's offspring. 📷 On another bike trail, we came across some sort of oddly shaped fungi sprouting from a fallen tree. The fungi, whatever it is, looked like it was grown from the finest spun velvet. Didn't touch it. 📷 If there was a contest for the creepiest, ghostliest tree to ever line the banks of the Suwannee River, this one would win. Hands down. 📷 Someone hung this very cool sculpture of a jellyfish in their front yard. It was crafted from shells and some sort of dried sea vegetation. Neat. 📷 This is certainly one of the best neon meet market signs ever to light up a lonely night. Period. 📷 📷 Another parking lot encounter: a genuine antique steam launch of unknown vintage. Reminded us of the African Queen. Sans Humphrey and Katharine, of course. 📷 Here's a carving of a duck wearing clown boots. Who can live without one? 📷 We had a chance encounter with a pair of seldom seen Bighorn Mountain pandas. Best guess: an invasive species. 📷 We came across this bizarre creature emerging from the sand on the beach. Didn't stick around. 📷 We found some sort of hollow puffball laying atop a fallen tree in the deep woods. It was about the size of a tangerine, but light as a feather. No idea what it was. 📷 Speaking of guessing, any ideas as to what this artifact is/was? The answer will appear in our next post! Next Up Manatees!
