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.

Georgia on Our Minds.

Our Location today is Adel, Georgia.

Would you believe that last night was a pretravel night and both Kathy and I slept with no problems and woke up feeling refreshed this morning. We figured that it was all the fresh air we had yesterday while walking around Williston RV Resort that just helped us to relax. We were up shortly after 7:00 and by the time we ate breakfast and closed everything up we were pulling out the front gate of the resort by 9:00. 

We enjoyed the relaxing countryside along highway 27 with the trees creating a canopy along the road only giving way to the occasional farm pastures. Unfortunately that was short lived after only a half hour we were taking the ramp onto I-75 Northbound. The traffic was flowing at speed limits and the only thing we had to do was to change lanes once in a while as traffic entered from the on ramps. 

We pulled into the Flying J at mile marker 2 in Georgia just around 11:30 almost feeling sad to have left the Sunshine State. There were so many RVers by the fuel pumps and restaurant that it was easier for me to simply go park with the trucks. 

We walked around the store to get the blood flowing once again before having our second breakfast of the day. Luckily the Denny’s was fairly busy with truckers and other traveling snowbirds so that gave us time to enjoy a few coffees and relax before our meals arrived. Once the bill was settled again we walked through the store looking but not buying before bringing the truck to the pump for fuel. 

After travelling just over 150 miles for the day we stopping at the Registration office at Reed Bingham State Park in Adel shortly before 1:30. This is our first stay at a state park because most that we have researched and read about on blogs are not big rig friendly. After registering it almost felt strange that nobody was guiding us to our site and the person that registered us was so busy we had to ask for a map and directions to our site. 

Once we’d found our site it was quite simple to back in. For a state park there are less than 50 RV sites but they are well laid out with many sites being pull-thru and the others are well angled to the road. Most are Water and Electric but they do have some sites that are Full Hookup. By the time we were set up both Kathy and I were so tired we opted to take a short nap. We had sandwiches for a light supper before going for a bicycle ride to check out more of the park.   

This park has a lake that the water level is controlled to maintain the flow of water to surrounding streams thus creating a beautiful waterfall along the end of the lake. Fishing is allowed and we noticed to that smaller motorized boats were fishing the lake. There are pavilions that can be rented for special events throughout the park. One of these is located down by the beach which has lots of available parking. We liked what we have seen so far. You need a bike to get around though. 

We were gone for nearly an hour exploring and we didn’t see the entire park but the wind had stopped and the humidity had increased and the mosquitos were starting to bite and we were tired. I’m now having a hard time keeping my eyes open as I write this blog so tomorrow we have more to see. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

How do you stop a dog from barking in the back garden?

Put it in the front garden.

  1. Sounds like that state park is similar to a COE park. Very nice stopping off spot.

  2. You are in our old stomping grounds. We lived in nearby Cairo for 5 years. If you get a chance to visit Thomasville, you might like it. It's a pretty town with a lot of old homes and architecture. If you go, don't miss "The Big Oak", and Granddaddys restaurant for lunch or breakfast. We love their grits cups!

  4. What a beautiful spot! I will have to check it out to see if it is on our route. We love campgrounds so much more than RV parks.

  5. I’ve camped a number of times at Reed. You can’t beat Georgia State Parks. We have some wonderful COE campgrounds, too.
