It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Travel Day

Our Location today is Olde Town, Florida.

Normally this doesn’t happen unless we are back at home in our apartment but it seemed that Kathy and I had pre-travel day jitters because both of us had a restless night’s sleep. Of course when we constantly wake through the night we just have to be awake early in order to welcome the sun but since it was so cool we just stayed in the warmth of the trailer.
Since it was early we took the time to do the typical morning reading on the computers before packing everything away for our day on the road. Kathy did her usual closing down the kitchen while I closed up our office equipment. Next she started closing down the back room while I made the bed and stored our CPAP machines for safe travels. Now it was Kathy’s turn to close down the toiletries in the front bedroom while I went outside to start closing down the utilities.
Traveling northbound on US19 Alternate.
We were on the road by 11:10 taking Wacassassa road for the final time this year. The GPS led us back to US19-Alternate with no problems and even though the traffic was thick it never slowed us down. Then Kathy and I did the ultimate crime that all GPSs cringe at we saw a sign for a Cracker Barrel restaurant ahead and since we’d eaten breakfast so early it was time for lunch. As you all know that poor thing went into a tirade of recalculations that changed with every turn I made to maneuver through the parking lot.
Gravel road for at least a mile leading to the campground.
After relaxing over our lunch it was time to follow the strict route of US19-Alternate following closely to the Gulf of Mexico as we headed north to our destination. There were a number of traffic lights that slowed our travels but there were more inconsiderate drivers that for no reason had to switch to the lane in front of us and start riding their brakes a quarter mile before the lights.
Once we had cleared the Homosassa Springs area we started making better time without all the traffic lights. Then it happened again because there are no rest stops on this stretch of road and parking lots are far and few between we put the GPS into another tailspin we needed to stop and refresh ourselves.
Crossing the Suwannee River.
After we were back on the road it screamed the orders of the directions we needed to take very precisely but by 3:30 we were pulling into the Yellow Jacket RV Park ending our 127 mile trip for the day. Backing in to our site was a little tight because of cabins on the other side of the lane but the space itself made up for the extra maneuvering.  This campground is quite a gem. I think we will enjoy our stay here.

 By 5:00 we were totally set up and enjoying our supper. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
