New base camp – meet my new friend Iggy!

Changing basecamp locations today. Whahooo!!!! Not.

I have received many questions on living conditions so let me share with you the new living quarters. We are now in Big Pine Key at a former road patrol prison.

Need to use the bathroom?


Definitely not a hotel. No real toilets in sight.

Male and female tents separate the people staying here.


Inside our sleeping quarters.


Good thing I stopped by early so I can claim top bunk.

But upon closer inspection, I found that something has already claimed my space.


So I figured it was a good time to take a picture with my new bunk mate.


I shall name him Iggy.

If there isn’t enough housing for disaster survivors, don’t think you are going to have a nice hotel to stay in or to lounge around. Plain and simple – disaster Survivors are the priority.

So to summarize, those that THINK they are going to be pampered with lush amenities, stay in a hotel, and gain points – this ain’t it. Don’t expect anyone to pamper you or get turn down service. And yes, it’s loud at night.

I’d also recommend that if you can’t stand camping, you are not cut out for disaster response.

I would best associate this disaster’s lodging to extreme camping.
