Graphics finally complete

Recommended Posts

We finally installed our grapics today on hull 537 "Beacon"

It was too cold to install them in Maine after we returned from picking the Ollie up in late October. It was warm enough today in the Florida Keys.  We have been on the road since February 3rd and will end this year's trip at the Oliver rally. My wife took the pictures and the graphics/vinyl were done by Banana Banners of Bowdionham, Maine. (Thanks for the referral Mainiac)  The photos are of the Pemaquid Lighthouse just 3 miles from home.  See you at the Rally.

Nice job on the graphics!  It’s an Oliver but it’s YOUR Oliver!  Mike

Well done! Beacon looks great all dressed up. I'll tell Robin how nice it looks basking in the Key West sun.

Brought ours home from 'Call of the Wild' just as mud season started, and then had to put the snowplow back on for a potential 8".  Enjoy the "cool" weather in Keys and think of us you left behind.

Thanks all for the nice feedback.  We are having a great time.  The Ollie is working out great for us.  We like that we can personalize it.  We have lots of Nancy's photos mounted on canvas inside, and the Lagun table modification.  You really can make the Oliver your own.

We leave the FL Keys tomorrow for a State Park in Naples.  We have received a number of inquiries and compliments on the Ollie along our journey so far.  Lots of curious folks and they all seem to like the Olliver.  The Ollie and our dog Marley are great conversation starters and have helped us meet lots of nice folks.

We are learning some lessons as first time RVers, like how difficult it is to get in any park in Florida in the winter.  The Keys have been split between 2 RV resorts.  The first was small with just 35 spaces.  The current park is huge with a couple hundred spots and even a restaurant.  Folks have been nice and helpful.  Nancy, Marley (our dog) and I are enjoying it.  So far Charleston, Savannah, and the Keys have been great and we have been in nice parks, some state parks some private.  4 of the 5 at the beach.  We have a free beach boondocking site coming up in Louisiana.

Bob (Mainiac), We think of you guys all the time and are appreciative of the help you provided.  Seems like a somewhat mild winter turned for the worse right after we left.  Keep shoveling and stay warm. Hope you plow out your Ollie, perhaps we can meet up!

After Naples we head up the gulf coast across the Florida panhandle, spending most of our stops along the beach and bays.  Then to Gulfport, MS and on to New Orleans, and Natchez, MS.  We will drive the Nachez Trace Parkway to Nashville and conclude our trip at the Oliver Rally before heading home for a great Summer in Maine with boating  (camping at sea) and Lobsters!!! 

It has been, and looks to be a great year!

54 degrees today. So mud season has started with a vengeance. Road to the Oliver is hard and we have started to prepare. We haven't decided if we will go south along the east or a western route. We do like the "Trace", and will probably find Seminole State Park again near Bainbridge, Ga.. With the tornados we will try to stay well North of I10. We like the roads less traveled...

I love your graphics. Banana Banners did ours as well, thanks to Bob Hunt. They need to give him a commission every time he sends an Oliver owner to them! We picked up in September and just left NH in mid February. The Trace and the rally are in our plans so hope to see you.  Paula

Hi Bob. We are at Collier Seminole Park in Naples. A guy from the Mooshead region stopped by and was chatting with me.  He volunteers here. He mentioned another Oliver that was in this park last year from Maine it sure sounded like he was describing you.  Hope all is well.  

Granite Staters, we look forward to running into you.  We lived in Exeter for 20 years and 2 years ago moved back to Maine.  We liked Exeter a ton.

It probably was us at Collier Seminole. We had a couple of chats with the gentleman (Greenville area maybe?). It was a Florida area we had not been to. If you like fine shotguns, there is a place in Naples called Cole Gunsmithing. The show room is filled with almost museum quality hardware. The shop is run and owned by Maine folks. 

We just picked up a log book to start recording when, where, and conditions of where we stop. Sometimes we can remember we stayed at a nice place for a night or two, just don't remember name, date, or even where it was. Some of those COE places we need to spend more time at, and on purpose. And they honor the " National Parks "old geezers" pass. We have heard about those free beach camping sites in LA., and are amongst our travel maybes.

Mud season is in full swing. Mosquitoes can't be far behind. Almost lobster time, Whoppie Pies, and Moxie...
