With the weather in Heathsville, Va still cold, we began our journey on Thursday morning the 7the of January. We traveled down the Interstate with rest stops and pet rest stops until we reached Lumberton, NC where we spent the night. It was pretty cold but we stayed warm with the heater and generator running. The next morning we continued south.Again we made our necessary stops along the way. We reached Savannah, Georgia that night. Figuring that we were headed south you would think that the temperatures would be going up, but as our luck goes,they were headed down. It got somewhere in the teens that night. There were also ice and sleet warnings for the next morning but luckily nothing happened. Saturday morning we continue south on I95 to Jacksonville, Fla., then headed a bit west to Keystone Heights area where we met up with our RV friends at Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park. While there we took several side trips to St Augustine, Fla to visit the town, and lighthouse. We also rode around to a couple of other spots. Frank and I climbed to the top of the lighthouse (219 steps) Wow! We went to visit Frank's brother Mike who owns a small ranch. Bill was thrilled with the horses. We had a great day. Almost our first two weeks in Florida had temperatures below freezing at night. In the Jacksonville area(where we were) there were 11 of 12 days below freezing. This was a record that hadn't occurred in over 160years.From the looks of the oranges they really took a hard hit. We left Frank and Renae Wednesday morning the 20th and are headed further south and east.
