New York City
I was born in New York. Elmira is a small town on the border of Pennsylvania along the Chemung river. I guess to some that makes me a Yankee. Even though I grew up in rural small town. Some would even call me a Chemunkey. But that’s another story. Let me tell you, a New Yorker, I am not. I’ve been to the city on one other occasion. Pookie and I had a day to spare on a road trip we were on. We stopped in New Jersey on the way to see my mother in Elmira. We were staying at her father’s place, much like we are now and took the train into the city for the day. That is the extent of my experience with NYC. We went to the Central Park Zoo and Central park. We enjoyed The American Museum of Natural History. We ate at the Famous Carnegie Deli where we dined on a 50 dollar corned beef sandwich. Even after all of that I still know very little about city life! So when I tell you these things don’t laugh too loud. For us, it’s this whole other country.

A lot of the time inspiration is fleeting, at least for me. Let’s not even talk about motivation. My interests have always been all or nothing. When something grabs my attention I am all about it. THIS IS MY LIFE! and when it’s gone… meh. So when I find the mood hits me I have to get it started or the moment is gone. Part of me wondered if that was going to be the case with this new lifestyle were living.

Furthermore in the spirit of keeping my interest in writing going here’s what’s been going on.

Three Flags is the third park we’ve stayed in the thousand trails system. Florida has 3 parks that are included in the southeast zone. This one feels the oldest and most rundown despite obvious work and improvements. They are renovating the park in certain areas and attempts are being made to clean the place up. It is also the smallest of the 3 Florida parks. We heard lots of complaints on the internet that it’s a dump and poorly run. I have to say you should take these people’s comments with a grain of salt. We have friends who complain about how terrible a restaurant is and when we go there we love it. While the park is older and smaller than we’ve seen and definitely needs some upgrades. We found it to be an acceptable place to stay and did enjoy being here. In short I would not hesitate to book another stay.
