Feb 16, 2019 - Perry, FL

We traveled along Hwy 98 to Perry, FL staying at Perry KOA for four nights. A day trip took us down to Manatee Springs State Park to see if the Manatees were in the Springs area off the Suwanee River. What we discovered was the water was so high from all the recent rains, that walkways were flooded and there was no way to see to the bottom of the Springs to tell if the Manatees were there or not. We had heard and seen first hand all the water in Florida, but had no idea the amount of water that flooded this area. Disappointing day, but we...

Feb 20, 2015 - Starting the Trip Home

We left Sarasota this morning and headed north on I75, US 98, and US 19. Not much new to see along the rout. We traveled part of this route last February on our trip south to escape the cold and snow in Georgia. We stayed in Crystal River and swam with the manatees before turning around to go home. I'm hoping we don't run into the same weather as we head into Georgia tomorrow. We stopped for the night at the Perry KOA in Perry, FL. We should be in Georgia tomorrow. Our plan is to stop like last year at the Brickyard Plantation Golf Course...

Jan 18, 2014 - Perry, Florida

Day 320 of the Big Trip January 18 Jim had gotten on line and found some pictures of the wiring for the refrigerator. They tried changing some connections, but something still wasn't right. We may have to find a technician somewhere down the road. By the time we'd done all of our futzing, we weren't on the road until after 11:00am. It was a good thing we had only about 125 miles to drive. The destination was Perry, FL, where we parked at the Elks Lodge and had water and electrical connections. The restaurant was serving prime rib for...

May 13, 2013 - Holt To Perry

Today we drove from Holt to Perry, a distance of 215 miles. This is our second stop in Florida, and our final destination is about 300 miles away. We are starting to take it very slow, after 2000 plus miles of being on the road, we need some rest and relaxation! We are staying at the Perry Elks, and we are camped on an area of grass that must be 5 acres, or so. Here are a few 'snaps' for you! Mike and Nancy

Travels In Serenity

Apr 30, 2012 - First day on the road

We pulled out of Daytona Beach this morning after Penny's dentist appt. and started heading NW. We were about 30 miles from Perry, Fla when the piece of junk Chevy, I still say we should have bought a Ford, decides to act up and starts loosing power. I just spent $800.00 on the truck last month. Was able to get it to behave so we could get to a Advanced Auto parts and had them run a scan. #7 Injector is not getting enough electrical power. The 2005 Chevy diesels had a problem with this. So we go to the Chevy dealer and he wants to charge me...

Apr 13, 2012 - Elks Lodge Perry FL

The RV parking at the Elks was very nice, the Lodge itself was OK, did not find the people to be that friendly. We did find a wonderful Bar-B-Que place, Goodman's, they have three types of sauce - hot, mild and tame, some of the best we have found outside of Almans in Fredericksburg VA.

Disney World Trip

Mar 29, 2012 - Perry FL

After a repair to the Jeep lights and some other minor maintenance, it was time to head west from Ocala on ALT 27 to Perry FL, which is about 2 hours from Ocala and an hour shy of Tallahassee. The reason for this stop is that Kyle is coaching the JV baseball team for Godby High School in Tallahassee, and they are playing Taylor County High School today which is conveniently located in...Perry FL. So instead of driving to Tally, setting up the bus, then driving an hour back to Perry, we figured we'd save 2 hours of Jeep gas and spend the...

Westbound Again

Feb 28, 2012 - West Panhandle of Florida Beaches

Left Summerdale this morning around 8:50am. Drove down the west coast of Florida to see the beautiful beaches. Most of the day was heavy fog, so much for the beautiful beaches. But we did get to enjoy some of the views when the fog cleared out. Arrived at the Elks in Perry, GA. This Elks had a wonderful campground. Highly recommend it. They had water and electric hookup and a dump station near by for a donation of $15.00.

Jun 13, 2010 - Perry, FL

We had a relatively easy drive today, less than 250 miles. We fueled at Flying J and had lunch there too. Our waitress/server was the grumpiest person we've run into in a while. You'd think they'd figure out that uttering a few civil words to the customers would enhance their chances of getting a reasonable tip...not this lady...grumpy and mostly silent....had to ask for everything....more coffee, jelly for the toast, etc. etc. Oh well, maybe she was having a bad day. We stopped in Perry at the KOA; it rained on us for a little stretch...

May 21, 2010 - Travel to Perry FL

Today we decided not to take the coast because it would be too long a drive, so we went inland a little and traveled through the Apalachicola National Forest. Some of the time we traveled along rural roads with swampy water along the sides and Larry kept telling me to watch for Alligators. We saw a few patches of wildflowers along the roads, but not nearly as many as in Texas. We arrived at Perry Elks Lodge and by the time we were all set up, Sam & Carolyn showed up. We went into the lodge for dinner and stayed for the Karaoke. It was a...

May 16, 2010 - Staying at the Elks

Today we left Fort Myers on our way to see Angie and the kids for the next few days. As members of the Elks Club, we can stay at local Elk Lodges with RV hookups and their prices are quite a bit lower than a campground. We are staying at the Elks in Perry, FL - when we arrived we thought we were going to be here all alone and another camper finally pulled in. It is very quiet and dark but great for the price as we are only looking for a place to stay on our way to Angie's.
