Manatees and no mosquitoes

After our repair stop-over at our RV dealer in Tampa, Lazydays, we had to make a couple of changes to our original plan. Originally after Lazydays, we planned to head to Carrabelle FL (near Tallahassee). Unfortunately they needed to order a few more parts to fix our side-view camera. That meant we had to stay relatively close...

Historic Savannah Georgia

Our next stop on our return trip south was Savannah Georgia. We stayed at a beautiful campsite in Skidaway Island State Park, with huge sites, towering trees draped with spanish moss, and plenty of hiking trails to walk with the dogs. The only downside to the campground was the large number of mosquitos—even with our...

Great Smoky Mountains

  From Wytheville, VA we made our way to Sylva, NC as we moved inexorably back down south towards Atlanta. Sylva, NC would be our last stop where the weather would be perfect. We stayed at a great little campground called Moonshine Creek right in the mountains. We had a pretty awesome site where the...

We made it to Wytheville VA, just a hair away from the North Carolina border. We left behind the hustle and bustle of...

Horses, chickens, and cows, oh my!

Lancaster County PA, where the cows and chickens truly are free-range, almost everyone has livestock and a garden (with corn) in their yard, and horse poop is a common sight on the road. We made it to Amish Country in PA and stayed in a little town called Intercourse (on the way there, we passed...

Hudson River Rail Trail

We just spent a week in Red Hook New York and had our first opportunity to break out our bicycles (newly retrieved from storage while passing through Maryland) and go for a ride. Not too far from Red Hook is the Walkway Over The Hudson, a 212-foot high railroad bridge built in 1888 and converted to...

Historic St Augustine

After Space Coast, we decided to head to St. Augustine and Jacksonville. Driving Rover continues to get easier and easier, thank goodness! St. Augustine is a great historic city. Its official title is the “oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States”. Basically it’s the oldest constantly occupied city in the...

Rockets and Beaches

We arrived at the Space Coast RV Resort in the early afternoon and got ourselves set up for the week. The Delta IV rocket carrying a next-generation GPS satellite into orbit was scheduled to launch at around 8:15pm, but the weather was taking a turn for the worse. After some torrential rains and heavy winds,...
