Today we left Joyce and Gene's and headed for St George Island at the eastern end of the Florida panhandle. It was about a 6 hr trip along mostly 2 lane highways. We arrived in the early afternoon and set up the campsite and made the connections. We don't have sewer connection here so if the black tank fills we will need to drive to the dump site. We then walked to the beach to see what we could. We did see a few dolphins and quite a few swimmers and sunbathers and a few fishermen. We talked to one man and woman fisherman to see how they...

The day started early. We went to a restaurant called Red's. We went with Joyce and Gene, and Nancy and Don. The restaurant Was good with the portions. I had a Greek omelet with fruit and grits. The omelet had 3 eggs. The fruit consisted of a slice of cantaloupe, a slice of honey dew melon, about 25 grapes, and 10 or so strawberries. We then headed home Sally and I took a walk. I still don't have the energy or willpower to jog. The weather was nice today, partly cloudy with a high of 77.

March 7th Today started with me getting a blood draw for a monthly test. We arrived at the place called Quest and there was a room full of people. We signed in. Then waited for an hour and a half. Finally we were called. It took 15 more minutes to register then 3 minutes to have my blood drawn. Then we were headed back to the RV. I was somewhat tense by this time so I decided on a 2 mile jog to relieve some of the tension. When I got back I decided to split some wood, I split a couple of logs then Sally and I took the truck and went back...

The ax became stuck in a log just before we left for a flea market near Ocala. The flea market was called The Markets of Marion and was quite large. I looked through the used section to find a mallet to strike the hatchet with to split wood. I found several butt I was uncomfortable about the price. We went into the new section and I found what I wanted for the price they wanted for used. It even had a better...

March 5th After we started moving today we rechecked the tire pressure in the trailer we were going to take to the landfill. The tires had lost pressure so they needed to be re-inflated. Then we backed the pickup as close as we could and pushed and pulled until we allined the ball with the trailer hitch, then lowered the trailer hitch onto the ball. Closed the lever and made sure they would stay together. Then connected the chains and other things. The pull through the yard went ok as Sally maneuvered around the trees. The tow to the land...

It had a flat tire so it had to be blown up. the hitch had to be oiled and loosened. Then we realized that Gene didn't have a ball.We found one and drove the 5-6 miles to get it. While there we visited . After returning home didn't have time to try it with the trailer hitch before we were to leave. I hope it works tomorrow when we need it. We then...

The course was very well built in a woods with many tree obstructions, Quite...

March 2nd Today was our first full day at Joyce and Gene's in Hernando. We did our usual early morning coffee and TV then off we went to a flea market. It was a fairly large one. Joyce bought a adjustable cane and I bought a fishing lure, Gene sat and waited the whole time. He doesn't have the desire to go he once had. We returned to the house and decided that it was time to wash the truck. It had been very dirty since we had taken the scenic Loop Road a couple of weeks ago. Then we decided to trim the neighbors bushes. We had trouble...

The trip was pleasant . We did go through Floral City again with it's trees that form a canopy over the highway. When we got to Joyce and Gene's we parked in the yard and started to visit. Joyce soon had to leave for a Dr's appointment. When she returned we had supper watched TV then retired for the night.

Afterwards I started...
