While we are down here in Central Florida this winter, we can take advantage of visiting stores of our interests that don’t have branches in Canada. As an example, Benno discovered that a Rockler Woodworking Hardware store was located in the Palm Springs Center in Altamonte Fl., just north of Orlando. Last week we took a trip down from our RV Park along the US-441S, which turned out to be a more scenic and a direct route than the alternative route along I-95. Rockler has a branch in Detroit that we had visited several years ago, but it was a much smaller store than this one. I was totally amazed at the massive inventory of woodworking machinery, exotic wood and all kinds of gadgets on the market related to woodworking. Although I just accompanied Benno so that he could satisfy his curiosity and browse to his heart’s content, I did learn a few things and enjoyed looking at various displays.
Also of notice for the guys reading this blog, Ocala is not only Horse Country and the home of John Travolta with his airplanes in our neighborhood, our Wandering Oaks RV Park here is known for dog lovers and Harley Davidson fans. We have a load of several interesting motorbikes here in our park. They are head turners and the guys take good care of them and are proud to display their custom made bikes. Here are two of them parked just opposite of our travel trailer and these are just two of a few.
And I have been wondering how they fit those 6 little pooches into their ATV (just kidding ;-)
