Feb 14, 2021 - Time Is Flying By

It's been a month since I've written here, time is flying by. Each weeks seems to go faster. There isn't a whole lot to report on. An RV is normally one adventure after another as far as what needs fixing is concerned. This trip has been no different. We've removed and repaired a toilet, replaced a 120v to 12v converter-charger, replaced a water pump in the coach portion, hung a six foot long privacy shade at the windshield, and had a leaking vacuum breaker replaced in the waste system. After having to rebuild our two rear stabilizing jacks...

Winter 2020-2021

Jan 13, 2021 - Settled In At Red Oaks

Almost 2 weeks here already. There hasn't been much to talk about. We've just been taking life slowly. We're slowly doing little fix up jobs, one at a time. Ellen has been back to a doctor for followup on her wrist. She starts her physical therapy today. We haven't had much rain at all, but the weather has not been what we come to expect in Florida. Temperatures have been below average, with a few mornings in the mid 30's. On Monday, we trekked over to Webster for the big flea market. As expected, it was much smaller than we've seen in the...

Jan 1, 2021 - Red Oaks RV Park

This morning we got things packed up and pulled out around 10AM. We topped off the fuel in the RV and pulled onto I-95 South. We crossed into Florida and crossed over to I-75 at Gainesville. Traffic is still relatively light, the sun is shining and the temperatures are heading into the 80's. We arrive at our home for the next two months at around 2 PM. We've traveled about 1200 miles since leaving home. We'll be here until early March. We're away from the crowds and out of the Covid limelight, so all should be good. It seems like many of...

Winter 2020-2021

Oct 31, 2020 - travel day

I kind of like not having to hurry in the morning to get ready to leave - gives a chance for the day to warm up a bit, too. After getting gas, I only had a 3 hour drive, so I stopped in a favorite rest area just south of Gainesville to have lunch and walk the snake walk to see the Paynes Prairie State Park. Once I got to my site, I had an audience watch me drive into it and remark that I did very well - hardly have to adjust the rig (front tire was touching the cement pad). I like seeing people, but not having them see every move I make! I...

Feb 18, 2020 - Halfway Through February

Halfway through February already. One again time is flying by. The weather has been a little crazy, even by Florida standards. We're running the air conditioner one and and have the heat on the next night. We're out in the country here, but it's only 20 to 40 minutes to get to just about any place we'd want to go. An hour's drive would take us to Disney or Tampa. We've run to the flea market in Webster, up to The Villages, Lady Lake, Inverness, and Brooksville. We're mostly just enjoying the peace and quite. Ellen is, of course, drooling...

Winter 2019-2020

Feb 1, 2020 - Bushnell, FL

Well time is flying by. Our month at Pleasant Lakes has come and gone. It's cool, damp and raining this Saturday morning. Happily the traffic is fairly light heading North in I-75. I think I've seen the most RV's I've ever seen in one day, all on the road today. It seems like an endless stream in both directions. I guess everyone wants to get where they are going before the Superbowl. So a slow ride in the rain and in 3 hours we're 100 miles North in Bushnell, FL. We'll be staying for the month in Red Oaks RV Resort. We've stayed here...

Well we completed our trip today returning to the starting point. We had a wonderful 192 days, 27 1/2 weeks, 6 Months and 9 days. But who's counting? We spent 73 of those days in Alaska.

Feel free to look back over our memories as often as you like, this blog will remain here as long as Mytripjournal exists. This is my last entry so thank you all for joining us on this adventure.

North to Alaska 2019

Oct 19, 2019 - Bushnell, FL

Today was rainy, we went for breakfast and left around 10:30 for the RV. We had BLT’s for lunch and went to the 3pm attitude adjustment. We went to dinner (pot luck) and played games until 9pm. We then watched the Yankee’s play baseball. Nothing for pictures....

Oct 20, 2018 - relaxing trip

I left Walmart about 8 AM with half a bottle of Pepsi for my caffeine and some Belvita bites to munch on for a breakfast. Three hours later, I stopped for gas and ate lunch at Dennys - a patty melt and fries. I stopped again at my favorite rest area on 75 because it has a walkway to view a prairie. I couldn't stay because it is still quite warm and the mosquitoes love it! I did grab a letterbox there, though. I got to the campground mid-afternoon and took awhile to set up because it isn't level. The front tires are still off the ground, but...

Mar 17, 2018 - Distilleries, Wineries and Breweries and some History too

Another long one, if you want to just look at the pictures here's the synopsis: some cold weather (even frost), baseball, beach with friends, St Augustine FL, Savannah GA, history, distilleries, breweries and wineries, more golf and activities at the park, finally getting warm again. Otherwise, read on and enjoy! Our wonderful and different winter in Florida, and our time in Paradise, is slowly coming to an end. In one week we will head out and start our way back home. The weather back home is still snow and freezing, and just so those back...

Feb 20, 2018 - Another Day In Paradise

Getting used to being in Florida could take a while. The weather here has been up and down... some mornings we have the heater on and then in the evening, the air conditioning kicks in. Some days you wake up to fog and then it burns off by mid morning... and it's boat drinks by the pool...we look at the weather that our families are having back home we realize how privileged we are to be spending this time south for the winter. Since our Key West trip, life has been pretty boring....we have filled our days playing a little pickle ball,...

Jan 13, 2018 - Begining of Winter

As we look at the calendar, we see that we’ve been here almost two weeks already. Now many of you reading this I know will understand how we feel… We’ve been here 2 weeks and still haven’t had a chance to go for a swim… it’s been just terribly cold down south. We even had a couple of nights with frost… it’s just awful. The first day back we packed up and took the bus to get new front tires (the old ones were over 10 years old and starting to crack and buckle, definitely time) and filled up on propane… knowing that the weather was going to...
