Where you can stay a night or a lifetime!

to The Great Outdoors

Since we opened our doors in 1989, the focus has always been on accommodating the RV lifestyle. We began as simply an RV resort offering luxury amenities such as our 18-hole championship golf course and on-site lounge and restaurant, as well as Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis courts, and shuffleboard. Many of our first-time guests found it difficult to leave at the end of our winter seasons, when the resort was at its highest rate of occupancy. Our motto from our inception was “Stay a night or a lifetime!” and we found many RV’ers bought sites to use year-round. From those early days, we listened to what our customers wanted and over our 20+ years, the RV enthusiast can choose from a myriad of lifestyles suited to their specific needs: from a basic RV site for the overnighter to one of our custom-built RV resort homes. There is not just one cookie-cutter lifestyle for the RVer here at TGO, but rather a lifestyle custom designed just for your needs. And all of this is offered in a true Florida paradise in a unique and convenient Central Florida location. We hope you enjoy browsing through our magazine, which we have filled with helpful information about The Great Outdoors. But most of all, we hope you will visit us – America’s top-rated RV resort - and check it out for yourself. Judy Willeke, Director

The Great Outdoors Products

RV Sites (Rental & Sales)

All sites have level concrete pads with underground utilities. Rental site hookups include water, 30/50 amp service, cable TV and sewer. Standard sites are generally 40’x80’ and can be for private use or added to the rental pool. Owners have the option of adding a screen room, storage shed, or an air-conditioned Executive Suite (see our article on page 8) that boasts a combined living/dining area, full kitchen, bathroom, plus laundry & storage. Sites were designed to back up to nature, golf course, or lake views. (Note: Executive Suites are not included in site rental.)

RV Ports (Rental & Sales)

RV port sites include a custom-built shelter for your RV on a concrete pad with underground utilities and include electricity, cable TV, telephone and sewer. Most ports also have screened rooms or Executive Suite and offer your RV protection from the elements. This allows you to use your site during inclement or harsh weather conditions. As with RV Sites, the RV Port can be placed into the rental pool when owners are not using them.

(Note: Executive Suites are not included in site rental.)

Park Homes

Park homes are another lifestyle available at The Great Outdoors. Besides the park home itself, many have site-built additions which may provide expanded living space, large porches, or extended RV parking complete with full hookups. Most park homes come completely furnished in a “ready to move into” condition. Similar in style to a “mobile” or “modular” home, park homes are an affordable answer to resort living.

Villas

True resort living is reflected in the architecture of the Florida villas at The Great Outdoors. Offering 1-2 bedrooms, these site-built homes offer a view of the golf course, lake, or natural woodlands. These homes are desirable for owners of smaller RV’s, or for those non-RV’ers who want to live in the resort and take advantage of golf and other activities, or to live near family and friends.

Resort Homes

Site-built custom resort homes include an attached RV port or garage with full hookups. Many also include covered or enclosed car and golf cart parking. A wide variety of floor plans offer 2 or more bedrooms, many with cathedral ceilings and lofts. These homes offer you the lifestyle of resort home living with the added bonus of having your RV parked under cover right outside your door. The Great Outdoors • 5

site/port or purchasing a site or home with RV parking. The Great Outdoors is unique in so many ways, but mainly we attribute it to the people who have made TGO their destination resort. It’s hard to imagine that you could find friendlier or more caring people than those who live at TGO. Our residents have a very special relationship with the diverse collection of wildlife that coexists in perfect harmony with their human counterparts. Our residents are actively involved in the resort operations. Our residents are mostly empty nesters who want to know that their home is being looked after while they are traveling around the country. Our residents love to walk our nature trail, visit our on-site restaurant, exercise their pet at the dog-play area, play golf, swim, play tennis, exercise or just simply relax and enjoy the near perfect weather Central Florida has to offer. Here are some of the most important facts you need to remember about our resort:

RV Living Featuring the

E

xecutive suite

Many of our RV site and RV port owners found themselves enjoying The Great Outdoors so much, they were spending more and more time here. Because it is difficult to entertain any number of friends – or if the weather had them going stir crazy inside their RV – the need for additional “living space” outside the RV became a great solution to an age-old problem. What started out as a simple screened room or gazebo has now become state-of-the-art efficiency apartments. Owners can now have full kitchens, full bathrooms, living/dining areas, plus laundry facilities – and may even add on a large screened room. If company drops in, many of these suites can accommodate them with sofa beds, futons, or airbeds. Plus the guests have their own private suite while you sleep comfortably in your RV! Because of the resort’s rules and regulations, you must have an RV on site if you utilize your Executive Suite. This was meant to prevent the use of these buildings as an efficiency apartment, as RV sites were not designed for full-time occupancy without an RV on site.

BEST SELECTION. BEST FLOORPLANS. BEST PRICES.

If you were to ask us what is the best promotional tool we have, our answer would be, “Our owners!” Many of our guests have commented that they became interested in purchasing property because of the number of happy campers they encountered. It is not unusual to meet an owner that started out renting an RV site and ended up becoming a proud homeowner. And many of our owners have owned multiple properties and investment properties as well. That is why you will see so many “Love It Here” bumper stickers and decals throughout the resort. Bob and Marilyn Weigel are a prime example of this concept. Bob said, “Our first visit in 1991 was in a borrowed Class C when TGO was in the early stages of housing development. In 1996 we retired and became full-time RV’ers in our own motorhome. In 1999, we returned to TGO for a rally, and had been looking for a place to spend our winters. We found TGO had so much to offer, so we bought a porte lot in Coach Club. The longer you’re here, the more you become involved in the church and various activities, so in 2003 we quit full-timing and built a home and are here to stay!” TGO residents Jim and Jeanne Caverly are new owners of an RV site on Sunset Drive. Jim has bicycled 4,504 miles across America to raise awareness and money for “Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)” , a non-profit organization for surviving family members and co-workers to help heal the pain of traumatic grief. Jim retired in 1999 after a 27-year career with the FBI, and he and his wife took to the road full time volunteering with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Red Cross Disaster Relief. Jeanne states, “We love TGO and are happy to be settled in one place for the winter! Bicycling Across America was an awesome summer experience, but I’m really enjoying being parked in the same location for more than one or two nights! We love all the activities and friendly folks at TGO! Stop by and see us!” You don’t have to be an RV’er to enjoy the lifestyle of TGO. Just ask Indiana State Senator Ron Alting, who bought a park model on Lake Drive back in 1996 as a family retreat. After experiencing the many activities, beautiful weather and 10 • The Great Outdoors

It’s the perfect spot to vacation and a great get-away for me to rest and relax! I always look forward to returning to my Florida home!” Another couple to make TGO their full-time residence is Pat and Steve Thomas, who first inquired about our resort back in 2002 when just a few years away from retiring. “We made our first visit here in 2005 as part of a rally group, and instantly fell in love with TGO. We had several friends who had made the move before us so we knew this place had the seal of approval!” After purchasing an RV site with an executive suite in 2006 as a winter home, it wasn’t long before TGO became their permanent residence. “We just moved into our park home and are loving it! We now look forward to joining the ranks of full-timers here.”

Alligators at the resort are wild and have a natural distrust of humans and try to avoid us. When people feed them, the gators begin to think of humans as a SOURCE of food. As a result, this gator has lost its fear of people and will follow them and therefore has to be put down.

Please protect the gators! Leave them alone and be aware that they can become aggressive and dangerous at any time!

We Will Buy Anything of Value!

oggie World At The Great Outdoors, we understand that pets are family members! Here in TGO there is something for everyone, and for your canine family members we have “Doggie-World”. You’ll find so many different activities within the resort for yourselves to do, make sure your dog gets in on the action as well. As you and your dog step through the gates of Doggie World, your four-legged friend will never want to leave. Whether you have a pintsized bundle of energy or a loveable full size dog, they all have a need to run, jump and play in the sunshine with the doggie pals or on their own. Doggie World is a safe fenced area where they can shake off their leash, learn new tricks, jump through hoops, leap over hurdles, play fetch, roll in the grass and meet other dogs their size. Dogs are such social ice breakers you never know what friendships you yourselves might create when striking up a conversation with other dog owners as your pets play in Doggie World. Research has shown that well exercised dogs live longer, bark less and behave better, which in return can bring more happiness and peace of mind to their owners. Your dog doesn’t want to sit home and wait for you - they want to get out there and play with their friends too! With the neutral territory of Doggie World, canines of all sizes can become the best of friends without any limitations. So make sure you stop by Doggie World while on your visit, your pooch will thank you.

ental Pool

For more information, contact our Rental Pool Manager 1-800-621-2267.

Our rental program has been operating successfully for over 20 years. Many owners of RV sites do not continuously occupy their site year round. During such periods of owner vacancy, the RV and Port sites can be put in the rental pool. Our rental pool is unique because all owners who have their sites in the pool share in the daily proceeds. Whether their site is rented or not, everybody gets a piece of the action!

Additional benefits while you are in the pool: • We pay the monthly electric bills • We administer managerial and clerical services • We provide maintenance (including ant control, minor repairs, etc.) • We collect and pay mandatory *Florida State sales tax • We implement all advertising, marketing & public relations to secure renters

TGO

*If renting your RV site outside of the rental pool, you must first register your rental unit for collecting sales tax (Form DR-1), and then remit the 11 percent (6% state, 5% county) tax EACH MONTH. Penalty is 10% per month for late payments. Failure to register is a misdemeanor in the first degree, plus 100% penalty fee for the taxes due and late charges.

istor Management System

The Great Outdoors instituted a state-of-the art automated visitor management system just last year. This system is a great new amenity for our residents. Previously, residents had to call the guard house for every visitor that entered and there was only a paper record. With the new system, residents can make a permanent guest list of their friends and family…and they can be granted entry at any time without the resident having to call them in. We now offer a voice and email automated system for residents to call in infrequent visitors that they wouldn’t have on their permanent guest list. The old remote control system was once used to open our resident’s gate. With this system, we were not able to control who had these remotes and who was coming through the resident’s gate. We installed a new barcode system, which now allows us to activate/deactivate barcodes as needed and it allows us to verify who enters the resident’s gate.

35

36

Mass Notification System This system is used by hundreds of public and private organizations Courtesy Patrol worldwide. The Mass Notification System provides automatic, list-driven notifications rapidly alerting residents, employees and businesses within the community of critical events and useful information. Upon activation, it distributes voice and text messages by phone (landline and cell numbers), SMS, email and fax. The web-based application collects and consolidates feedback into comprehensive reports, confirming message delivery and the status of recipients. The Mass Notification System solution facilitates immediate notification concerning events such as hurricanes, fire threats, criminal activity and water main breaks. The application also conveys information to residents regarding homeowner association meetings, amenity closures, policy changes and community events.

The American Veterinary Dental Society says that more than 85% of all dogs and cats 4 years of age or older have some form of dental disease. Your observation of early tartar and plaque build-up is essential to the prevention of future health problems. Bacteria moving into the plaque causes swollen gums and gaseous odors. As the disease progresses gums separate from the teeth, pockets of infection appear, and roots begin to loosen. This infection can be swept into the bloodstream showering the organs (heart, lungs, liver and kidneys) with continuing assaults. This stresses the immune system and eventually sets into every organ.

24 • The Great Outdoors

Prevention of this process requires good home care, as well as, good veterinary dental care. Visit your veterinarian on a regular basis. A physical exam and medical history will aide in establishing your pets individual protocol. A combination of veterinary cleaning and polish along with a variety of home treatments including brushing daily is preferred. Professional cleanings requires anesthetic, the use of hand tools and ultrasonic equipment in order to scale and adequately remove plaque and tarter build-up and clean gum pockets. Advanced cases may exhibit bone loss requiring extractions and or radiographs. Prevention is best accomplished at an early age. Start as a puppy or kitten by brushing their teets daily. In older pets start after a professional cleaning. For further evaluation of your pet see Dr. Meyerer at Garden Street Animal Hospital, 321-267-4615

Windstorm Insurance in

The Great Outdoors

I

n 1992, the Miami-Dade County Building Code was thought to be among the strictest in the nation. Then along came Hurricane Andrew and its 170 mph winds which highlighted the vulnerability of our building standards. In response to the devastation caused by Andrew, the Florida Building Code Commission (FBC) was established in the late 1990s. In March 2002, the FBC implemented the first legislated windstorm mitigation premium credits. What does all this mean to you? It means substantial savings on windstorm insurance premiums are available to homes built or retrofitted after these tougher building codes were in place. In order to realized these discounts, you home must be inspected by a state licensed contractor who must then fill out a Uniform Mitigation Verification Form. Once the completed and signed form is provided to your insurance company, they must apply available discounts to the windstorm portion of your insurance premium. Windstorm mitigation credits can reduce your overall insurance premiums more that any other single factor.

Although there is plenty for you to do within The Great Outdoors, it’s nice to know that just minutes away lies Port Canaveral, home to several cruise lines, and the second busiest port in North America. In 2012, Port Canaveral boarded over 3.76 million multi-day cruise passengers. Port Canaveral has six terminals exclusively for cruise passengers use for such vessels as Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Lines and Victory Casino Cruise Line. These cruises feature destinations throughout the Bahamas, Mexico, and the Eastern and Western Caribbean, while the Victory cruises twice daily offshore The Cove at Port Canaveral offers many non-cruise options – restaurants, lounges, shops, charter boats and arts & crafts. The Cove Market Place is an open air market with unique arts, crafts, pottery, paintings, carvings, and jewelry from over 40 vendors. This unique marketplace is open Tuesday, Wednesday and the first Saturday of each month. Also showcased are a number of restaurants, from tiki bars to fine dining, all offering fresh catch of the day from the port’s many dockside fishing boats! Want to charter your own boat or join in on a day trip with one of the many deep sea fishing boats offered here at Port Canaveral? No problem! Make a day of enjoying the leisure lifestyle exclusively from the many vantage points at Port Canaveral.

We are also excited to announce the arrival of Victory Casino Cruise Line, offering twice-daily cruises. Lasting 5 hours each cruise, enjoy over 600 of the newest slot machines, table games such as black jack, craps, Texas Hold Em & 3-card poker, roulette, EZ Bac, bingo and more. Buffet dining on the a.m. & p.m. cruise is available, as well as an open-deck bar where you can sit, relax & watch the shoreline drift away! If you’re looking for more casino action, try Tampa’s Seminole Hard Rock Casino. Well-known as one of the world’s largest casinos, Hard Rock boasts over 5,000 of the most popular slot machines and 90 table games, including a poker room and live action tables. Hard Rock encompasses over 190,000 square feet of non-stop gaming action, and includes a world-class hotel, fine dining and fast food restaurants, and luxurious amenities such as fitness center, spa and swimming pool for its hotel guests.

Nature at

The Great Outdoors Our resort is roughly 2,800 acres bordered by state preserved land and The Canaveral Marshes. The land was purchased in ____ by Jack Eckerd, founder of Eckerd Drug Stores. For many years, Mr. Eckerd would use the property as a hunting and fishing camp until his son, Jim Swann, presented him with the idea of developing a luxury RV resort. Mr. Swann’s main focus was to maintain as much of the natural landscape as possible during the development of the resort, with nature being the foremost concern. Our resort features miles of nature trails with the opportunity to view Florida as the earliest inhabitants would have viewed it. One of the most popular hobbies among residents is birding. The resort is located on the Eastern Continental Flyway, a major bird migration corridor. More than 330 species have been viewed here, including the beautiful and rare colored bunting. And we are within easy access to The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, a gateway to the East Section of the “Great Florida Birding Trail”, a 2,000 mile long series of sites established by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission to help connect birders with the best spots and species. Brevard County is also home to the Annual Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival. For more information, visit www.floridabirdingtrail.com. We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of individuals who comprise our Nature 30 • The Great Outdoors

Committee, which provides programs and education about the nature and wildlife in our area. Thanks to their efforts, along with the community as a whole, we now have a beautiful Nature Center that showcases some of the local flora and fauna. The center is complete with a library, meeting rooms, and many exhibits of

the wildlife that can be found at TGO. The Nature Committee also holds various field trips to the beaches and wildlife preserves in the area. Another popular activity among our residents is simply walking the nature trail hoping for the chance to see one of our baby fawns or wild turkeys. It was only natural for residents to take photos of all the wonderful sights this activity presented them. The TGO Photography Club was soon formed, where amateurs to professionals meet and compare photos and techniques. A special thanks to Bob Boyd for sharing the photos on this page!

Lakeland dealer offers large selection, low prices

If you have been thinking of replacing your old RV, or buying your first, this is a good time to take the plunge. After several years of industry consolidation owing to the recession, a revitalized field of manufacturers are rolling out innovative new models at attractive prices, and customers are returing to dealer’s showrooms. Whether you are a seasoned RVer or just starting out, there is no better place to see what’s new than R.V. World of Lakeland. R.V. World of Lakeland stocks more that 175 new and used RVs, from the largest Class A luxury motorhomes to the most economical van campers and travel trailers. You will find just what you are looking for, in your price range, at R.V. World’s full-service facility at 940 Lakeland Park Center Drive (formerly Crevasse Street) just north of downtown Lakeland. If you are in the market to purchase a new or used recreational vehicle, or looking for parts, accessories or repairs for an RV you already own, R.V. World of Lakeland is the only name you need to remember. What distinguishes R.V. Work of Lakeland? It can be summed up in three words: selection, service, and satisfaction. SELECTION R.V. World of Lakeland carries all types of recreational vehicles. If you are looking for a full-size Class A or Class C motorhome, you can select among models from Holiday Rambler, Coachmen and Forest River. Class A motorhomes are available up to 40 feet in length and Class Cs up to 32 feet. If you are looking for something smaller, R.V. World has you covered there, too, because it is one of the nation’s leading dealers of small RVs. Class B van campers are available from Roadtrek, Leisure Travel and Great West. Roomier, Class “B+” units are available from Dynamax, Coach House, Coachmen, Forest River,

Leisure Travel, Holiday Rambler and Triple E. And there are travel trailers, fifth wheels, park models and toy haulers from Forest River, Coachmen, Riverside RV and Livin Lite. SERVICE At R.V. World of Lakeland, service starts before the sale, with courteous salespeople who will take the time to get to know you and your purchasing needs. It continues through the entire buying experience, with honest negotiations and no surprises. And after the sale, R.V. World of Lakeland stands behind its products with skilled technicians who can keep your RV in tip-top condition. SATISFACTION R.V. World promises it will not be undersold. “No-hassle” prices are clearly posted on each new vehicle. And if you bring a signed, valid order from another dealer, R.V. World of Lakeland will meet or beat that price on an identical in-stock motorhome. R.V. World offers top dollar for your trade-in – and it doesn’t even need to be an RV. If it rolls, floats or flies, they will consider it for a trade. R.V. World of Lakeland also takes consignments. If you have a good, clean latemodel motorhome that you would like to sell, call and ask for Mark A. Santangelo, who can “turn your RV into $$$.” Finally, R.V. World has an on-site financing department, so they can have you driving off the lot today in a new motorhome. And remember, low interest rates mean you can afford more recreational vehicle! To reach R.V. World of Lakeland, use exit 32 from Interstate 4, go north one-quarter mile on U.S. 98, and turn right on to Lakeland Park Center Drive. The phone number is (863) 853-9177 or call tollfree 1-877-663-7506. By Matt Gerzeny, V.P. and Owner, R.V. World of Lakeland The Great Outdoors • 31
