Temperature 94 Degrees, Abundant Sunshine
One Stop Closer To Home
Wednesday, bright and early we said our goodbyes to the Hitchin Post and got back on the road heading south. Today would be all highway driving so I didn’t anticipate any issues with stop and go traffic. Thankfully, I was right.
We could have gone straight home, though it would have been about a six hour drive. However, we have friends in Ocala who we wanted to stop and see. In addition, it is time to have annual coach care maintenance done on Elvira. So, for those two reasons we planned on stopping at an RV Park just north of Ocala.
The drive was an easy one but a bit longer than we like – a good four hours. The temperatures were in the 90’s but thankfully our dash A/C decided to work the whole trip this time. It’s sort of funky, that is it will work for a couple of hours then it just blows luke warm air. I’ve found, though, that if I switch it to vent for ten to fifteen minutes and then switch back to A/C it will work for another couple of hours. What can I say, our rig is haunted!
In time we exited the highway and made our way to
where we will stay until Sunday. I have to tell you this place is
huge. This is one of their stock photos. There is one section with some 300 plus manufactured homes in place. The second section has 207 RV sites with a good 90% being seasonal. Then in between and among the seasonal sites are places for transients like us.
And here we are. A nice concrete pad, of course it isn’t level but what else is new. It is a really nice place to hang out for a few days. This park is spotless, every site is neat, clean and tidy. And despite being called a resort it is one of the least expensive parks we have stayed in this whole summer. Now, perhaps you’ve noticed we have a few trees all around us. Well, Albert did like this at all. So,
he found himself all alone on a table 50ft from the rig. Here, there is just a big enough hole in the trees for him to lock on to all three satellites. Ah yes, life is good and we’re almost home. This time next week I should be sitting in my nice big recliner with my feet up and remembering the fantastic time we had this past summer.
Thanks again for spending some time with us. It’s always great to be able to share our story with family and friends. Comments? Feel free to share them with me. And always remember, cherish every moment of every day that God gives you and live those moments to the fullest.
Our continuing mission remains the same: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before.

Wow, that is a huge park. Looks very nice.
This place is amazing. Huge, but well taken care of. And very reasonable for a resort in Florida.
Looks like a very nice place. I can’t believe you are almost home. But fall has arrived, winter can’t be too far behind. You’ve had a great summer with so many wonderful adventures. Soon it will be time to “nest” and …. to plan more travels! Enjoy your time with your friends! Maybe you and Barb will play Rummikub with them. 🙂
Almost home, sounds strange to even say but that we are. Looking forward to being there next week. Just in time for the first hurricane of the season!
