You Learn Something New Everyday

Travel Day

Our New Neighborhood

Yesterday, when we returned to Paradise Oaks for the night we had a pull through site that was dead level. So I thought to my self, Why dump the air tanks and use the jacks. I’ll just turn Elvira off and see what happens by morning. Well, by morning the air tanks and the air bags were still full and we were still dead level. Good to know for the future.

Ms. Barbara really had no desire to cook this morning so we decided to purchase breakfast from Kelly’s Lunchbox. Why is it that you always discover the best places for food the week before you leave? We both had egg sandwiches and they were absolutely delicious.

It was now time for a new adventure to begin. Slides in, utilities disconnected, car hooked up it was time to roll.

What can I say about today’s trip? It had a little bit of everything. Heavy rain in the beginning. Clear skies later. Heavy traffic from time to time. Construction delays amounting to some 30 minutes. Held up by a funeral. Strong, gusty side winds. And I almost sent an elderly lady to her grave when she pulled out right in front of me – and stopped. How I managed to stop I have to idea. I was up almost against her drivers door and she was oblivious to the fact that I was there. If you ask me, this is one individual that should have her drivers license taken away.

So we’ve said goodbye for now to Florida.

One other new thing I learned today is a way out of Florida without going through Jacksonville and all its traffic. When I got to the intersection of Route 301 and Route 10, I stayed on Route 301, which it turn joined up with Route 200, which then brought us to Route 95. The route is a great one, roads in excellent condition, speed limit in most places is 65 mph.

In due time we said hello to Georgia. Oh yes, we are moving north toward new adventures and also much cooler temperatures then we are used to.

It wasn’t too long before we saw our exit.

A right turn at the end of the exit ramp, two minutes down the road and we spotted the Welcome sign for our new neighborhood. How about those other two signs at the bottom of the welcome sign.

Just like the sign says, give a call and the gate slides open and you’re in!

A nice touch of color on your way in.

Our new home for the next seven days. This is our kind of RV park. It doesn’t pretend to be something it isn’t. It’s not a resort and that’s fine by us. What it is, is a well taken care of private RV park that offers you great value for your dollar. The roads are all paved, OK a bit narrow, but with no pot holes. The sites are not the most spacious but they are clean and level. The utilities are just where you would expect them and everything works without an issue. This is a park that I can and would recommend to anyone traveling along the Route 95 corridor.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We started the day with the A/C on, but now we have the heat on! We’re thankful to the good Lord for getting us here safely. Ah yes, the adventure has begun and we’re looking forward to it.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. Glad you arrived safely. Enjoy your week in that area. We have Darien on our list to see, but maybe we can see it through your eyes first.


    1. There is not much here in Darien but it is close and convenient to at least a dozen or more historical sites and other attractions. In addition all major stores are just 30 minutes away in Brunswick. Staying here is a little piece of heaven so we’re glad we picked it for our home base.
