Default Myakka State Park, Fl

Couldn't take it any longer and booked 2 nights at a state park about an hour north of us at Myakka River State Park. We have been helping a friends daughter fix up her 2017 Premier Ultra Lite camper and she wants to try it out and make sure everything works ok. So her maiden voyage will be with us (and possibly her parents) to this state park. It will be good to get away, even if it is for only 2 nights, but it will be hotter than Hades. We will be there July 6 & 7 and leaving on the 8th. I was able to reserve 3 spots in the nice section...all in a line. I'm just excited to be able to shop at Lucky's grocery store. It's like Whole Foods with alcohol. The shopping carts have cup holders!

We really like the Florida Lucky's, but the one we shop when in Florida closed. Rumor had it they all closed.

Knock on wood, but they seem to be fine. We took the bus out today and drove it up to the shop to stretch it's legs a bit. Voltage was around 13.7 running. There's only 1 of the 4 batteries that I accidentally added too much distilled water to, because I didn't know where the water line should be and my Darling Hubby just kept putting off my request to check them ....so I attempted to do it myself. He said I put in too much water and removed it till it was just above the fins, so I am sure the acid ratio might be a bit off now in that one. After about the 10th time of asking him to do it and him forgetting...I lost patience and took matters into my own hands.

Sorry Lucky’s fans; more than a rumor.

Colorado-based Lucky's Market filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in January (2020) after major investor Kroger announced plans to divest its stake in the company. Kroger's investment had allowed the trendy natural- and organic-foods grocery to expand nationwide. Lucky's will continue to operate a half-dozen stores in Colorado, Ohio, Michigan, and Missouri.

-Publix Super Markets bid on 5 Lucky's in Clermont, S Orange Avenue in Orlando, and Ormond Beach.
-Aldi Inc. bid on 6 Lucky's in the Vineland area of Orange County, Colonial Landing in Orlando, and Sarasota.
-Winn-Dixie bid on 4 Lucky's statewide, including Gainesville, Melbourne, and Lake Mary.
-Seabra's Market bid on the Lucky's in Hunter's Creek area of Orange County.
-Hitchcock's Market bid on a St. Petersburg location.
-Dollar General bid on Lucky's Orlando distribution center.


Nothing to do with COVID - just Kroger deciding it couldn’t make a buck.

The one here in Panama City closed a few months ago; they were only open a year or two.
