Travel Day 2 – Florida Bound – We made it :)

We  made it to our usual overnight at Twin Oaks RV Park near Elko, GA last night.

We’re traveling 340 miles today, pushing the rest of the way to Tampa.  We’ll go south on I-75 nearly the entire route, getting off onto I-4 for a couple miles to exit 10 for Lazy Days Campground in Seffner, FL.

Today we stopped and had lunch at the Florida Welcome Center / Rest Area just south of the GA/FL border.  Beautiful day!

Enroute, we stopped off at Blue Beacon to get the truck and RV cleaned up.

Nice and shiny!

We arrived at Lazy Days Campground in Seffner, FL around 5 pm tonight.  We’re all setup in site #3. We met our Heartland friends that are camped around us at Lazy Days. Here’s me with one of Randy and Santha’s poodles in Santha’s new Heartland Big Country RV.

For dinner, Nancy and I went out to Smokey Bones to meet a new Heartland employee.  Great meeting. I also destroyed this rack of ribs!

Travel Day 1 – Florida Bound :)

We  stopped for fuel and to have lunch at Pilot in south Georgia on I-75.   We have 350 miles to travel in total today with 244 miles yet to go.

Here’s the rig all tucked into an end spot at Pilot. Love end spots as we can put the slide out on one side and have it not be in another parking space
Our planned route for today.  We actually left Pigeon Forge, TN this morning and took I-40 West to  I-75.  From there, we’re heading south to Elko, GA to overnight at Twin Oaks RV Park.  Elko is just south of Perry, GA and Twin Oaks is just off the interstate.  $19 PPA rate is nice too.
