    I am so happy this group is here! I came to the Gulf for the winter. Alabama. Land of Roy Moore. I'm losing my mind here! I honestly cannot handle talking to the locals because Moore is THE SUBJECT of conversation. Unbelievable. I have been asked if ...  more

      Bobbie&Kurt Hi, Beverly. It sounds like you’re in a nightmare. We spent two weeks in AL last winter and that was strange. I poked around your profile and noticed you aren’t in Liberal RVers group. Might help you locate some folks. Also, it’s related to a Facebook pa...  more

      delbike The deep South can be tough. It's the land where people don't ask where you're from, or what you do. They start with what church do you go to. Hang in there. You never know when you might meet a likeminded person.

      gypsy ken The Gulf Shores beach area is lovely, and I have enjoyed stays at the Gulf State Park and at the Escapees park.  But with Alabama voters poised to elect the utterly disgusting Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate, I am boycotting the state, and I recommend t...  more
