I made it to Florida safely. I had to go through Georgia to accomplish this. Georgia is a very tall state. Driving I-75 through Georgia is even longer than driving I-81 through Virginia, it is that tall!
I have been through Georgia many times, but have never actually stopped and done anything. That has not changed. Other than getting gas, I have still done nothing in Georgia.
And there are things I want to do and see there. I wonder why it is never the terminus, just somewhere I need to pass through to get to the real destination. I think that will change. I am going to stop somewhere in Georgia and do something, if not on my way west, then on my way back. Not sure what yet, I will have to do a little research. Send ideas!
On Sunday night I parked at a Wal-Mart with a Chili’s next to it. I got there around 9:00 in the evening and went to the Chili’s hoping to catch the Eagles game. They had it on and I got to watch them win! They closed at 11:00 but the bartender left me watch the entire game while he did his closing work. We talked during commercials. I told him about heading to Jensen Beach and visiting my cousin, Tammy, who lives in Stuart. He is from Stuart and his family is still there. Small world . . .
In the morning, I noticed my parking lot neighbor. Wow, I wish modern RV’s would have color choices like that! Vintage colors can be stylin’! I would so choose colors like that, too bad I am not more mechanical, because I am sure the upkeep on that would be too much for me.
I will say the campground in TN may have spoiled me for any others. This one in FL is definitely a step down, clearly rather old and very little updating. And no wi-fi, quite disappointing.
I will post when I can, probably when I visit Tammy and can use her internet access. I will be there New Year’s Day for pork and sauerkraut, I will have my good luck meal even though I am not in PA.
I like the following quote and thought it appropriate since I am in Florida.
“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” – Saint Augustine
