Nora-Gaye and I lived this story, beginning when we thought about buying an RV park and living in it. We ended up in our own RV park for for more than nine years. What we relate here is how she got started,what we decided, saw, felt, learned, tried, "kicked tires", tested, and finally bought an RV Park in Apopka FL in 2002. It was a fixer-upper---Oh, how it was a fixer-upper!

The first thing we did was to device a testing system for every RV park we thought was interesting. Checking on the internet, we narrowed down the search to the Southeast US. Even then, we narrowed it down further to about a dozen RV parks that were fixer-uppers. It did not take long---after we started traveling in our own RV---to see what these parks were about.

Of parks in Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, only the one in Georgia was a great park. Unfortunately, it was also one off the beaten path. Finally, we dropped into Florida and inspected a few. One was absolutely the greatest we had seen. However, the owner insisted on a cash only basis without telling us his income.

Eventually, we came to an Over 55 park in Apopka, Florida. It was rundown. The only people coming there were old folks from the northland, Snowbirds, who came for the winter. Driving around the ten acre park, we were not impressed, even as a fixer-upper. However, nothing else was available and we came back in January to stay. In April, we made an offer, accepted right away, and we began planning.

Literally everything had to be rebuilt to 2002 standards! The burgeoning RV industry that was changing all the previous rules. We have included our personal interests as well as the agonizing methods of rebuilding to park. Ours, renamed Orange Blossom RV Resort, would be a Family Park. That would include swings, monkey bars, and other children's delights, as well as adult delights. The swimming pool had to be rebuilt before it was acceptable by the FL Dept of Health, for use. The rebuilding process included the bathrooms, the streets, the RV sites for back-in and pull-thru; realigning all the sites for ease of pull in and out. The streets were repave to a smooth texture.

Meanwhile, we learned about financial responsibility with a variety of online applications.

Once we established our new park, we encouraged trips to many historical sites around middle Florida. This was in addition to the many great delights, such as Disney World ands Universal Studios, not to mention several others.

Included herein are many tips for anyone who desires to build or buy an existing RV Park. Several Warnings are spelled out for the unwary. But, listen, there are many humorous stories that you, too, would fall into. Read on, learn, and enjoy.

About the Book:

When it was first published in 2005, Mastering the Trade became an instant classic in the world of day trading. Now, veteran day trader and educator John F. Carter has updated his time-proven swing trading technique to help you succeed in an environment vastly transformed by volatility and technology.

Universally acclaimed for its sophisticated yet easy-to-execute methods, this practical, results-driven guide provides everything you need to make a lucrative career as a day trader—from preparing yourself psychologically for the unique demands of day trading to timing the market, managing risk, and planning future trades.

Mastering the Trade sets aside timeworn basics and rehashed ideas to examine in detail the underlying factors that cause prices to move. Providing the tools you need to make the right decisions at the right times, it helps you enter market shifts early and either pull out before losses accrue or hang on for a long and refreshingly predictable ride. Mastering the Trade covers:

The five psychological truths that will transform you from a mistake-prone novice into a savvy trading professional Exact entry, exit, and stop-loss levels for the intraday trading of stocks, options, ETFs, e-mini futures, 30-year bonds, currencies, and more Seven key internals, from $TICKS to five-minute volume—critical for gauging pending market direction from the opening bell Premarket checklists for analyzing recent market behavior and calculating on each trading day what you plan to do, how you plan to do it, and why Airtight risk control techniques for protecting trading capital—the most important component of a professional trading career

After spending many years on various trading desks, Carter has developed an intuitive understanding of how the markets work. In Mastering the Trade, he gives you unlimited access to everything the markets have taught him—so you can make an exceptional living on the frontlines of professional trading.

As planned, military action in the U. S. Commonwealth of the Philippine Isles would be in consonance with the 1935 U. S. WAR PLAN ORANGE, Revision 3 (WPO-3). When war threatened in the Pacific theater, WPO-3 was amended in 1941 as a result of the Placentia Bay, Argentia, Newfoundland meeting between United States President Franklin Roosevelt and Great Britain Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and their respective War Staffs. This revision, renamed RAINBOW 5, included military and naval forces of Australia, Great Britain, The Netherlands (Dutch), and the United States (America) (ABDA) in a mutual defense pact. War Plan Rainbow 5 provided detailed, precise instructions the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy in the Pacific Theater would execute in the event of hostilities with Japan. If it appeared hostilities were imminent, the President of the United States, Commander-in-Chief of all U. S. military and naval forces, would order execution of Phase One, RAINBOW 5. Phase One explicitly ordered the U.S. Army Air Force (FEAF), headquartered at Nielson Field, Manila, subordinate to the U.S. Army Far East Command (USAFFE), The Philippines, to send one Boeing B-17D Flying Fortress on a high altitude photo-reconnaissance mission over Japanese military targets in and around the island of Formosa. At the same time, the U.S. Navy Asiatic Fleet, except submarines, gunboats, PT boats, harbor vessels, and shore command, would depart for agreed upon ports in Java, Borneo, Celebes, and Singapore. (The U.S. Army Air Force was created on June 20, 1941, but elements of the U.S. Army Air Corps remained intact until 1947 when both USAAF and USAAC were abolished and the U.S. Air Force (USAF) was born. I decided to use USAAF throughout this book.)
This is the second book of four in the USS HOQUIAM PF-5 series: RESURRECTION, ROAD TO HUNGNAM, HOCKY MARU, and KNOCK OFF SHIP'S WORK. It is the continuing story of the USS HOQUIAM PF-5 as seen through the eyes of a young sailor, Lee Harrison Stewart. ROAD TO HUNGNAM continues the story started in RESURRECTED.

As the story opens, the Hoquiam is in the midst of shakedown and training. Abruptly, she is ordered to Wonsan, North Korea, to participate in the Fifth Marines Amphibious Landing. The Commanding Officer is told his ship will carry out any additional tasks for two weeks as may be ordered by Commander, Task Force 90. Anchored in Wonsan Harbor, the Captain, Lieutenant Commander Maxwell J. Brown, receives new orders to report to Commander, Task Force 96, for an indeterminate length of time.

The crew is not prepared for the very cold weather that drops out of Siberia within days, as the Hoquiam acts as Harbor Entrance Control Vessel for troop and supply landings at Iwon, Songjin, Hungnam, and Chongjin, North Korea. Shortly after completing those missions, she returns to Hungnam and acts as Harbor Entrance Control Vessel once again.

Meanwhile, Lee Stewart receives a letter from Betty Echols, a former girl friend, who believes he is still at Naval Station Tongue Point. She writes a sad tale of woe. At her high school graduation party, her date, Ralph Rogers, got her drunk, had his way, and now she was pregnant. Ralph immediately joined the Air Force and left town. She begs Lee to marry her and father this child.

A letter from the D.A. in Astoria, Oregon, arrives a short time later, charging Lee Stewart with felony copulation with a minor, Betty Echols, whom he had dated, impregnating her, and serving her intoxicants. Lt. Marston steals both letters and places them in Stewart Personnel Jacket for safekeeping until they return to Yokosuka.

The Hoquiam moors in front of ComFltActs Hungnam as their communications guard while they prepare to evacuate Hungnam. The ship takes on marines and children, and moves out to act as swept mine channel point at the Sea Buoy, Buoy #1. As such, the Hoquiam is literally the last vessel to depart the Hungnam area, right behind the Underwater Demolition Team support ship.

The Hoquiam anchors in Pusan long enough to disembark the marines and Korean children, then sails home to Yokosuka, arriving December 31st, seventy-three days after she was ordered to Wonsan for two weeks. Lee learns his Japanese girl friend, Kiki Hatsumoto, had to leave Yokosuka.
The daughter who nobody wanted learns the truth about the mother she never knew. A page-turning, heart-breaking mystery 'full of surprises ... this is a classic whodunit' (Scotsman).

Cal McGill is a unique investigator and oceanographer who uses his expertise to locate things - and sometimes people - lost or missing at sea.

His expertise could unravel the haunting mystery of why, twenty-six years ago on a remote Scottish beach, Megan Bates strode out into the cold ocean and let the waves wash her away.

Megan's daughter, Violet Wells, was abandoned as a baby on the steps of a local hospital just hours before the mother she never knew took her own life.

As McGill is drawn into Violet's search for the truth, he encounters a coastal community divided by obsession and grief, and united only by a conviction that its secrets should stay buried...
