Jun 12, 2014 - First day on the road
This was our first day on the road. Dan and I stopped at Danny's house (our son)at 5 am. Our plan was to leave early enough to get through Orlando before the worst of their morning rush hour started. Two sleepy boys, Eric, 14, and Adam, 9, trudged out to the car and piled in with their pillows and electronics and were not heard from again for a couple of hours. I drove the first leg, about two hours, then Danny took over. Each time we changed drivers, we stopped to gas up, walk the dogs, go to the restroom, and get a drink and/or snack.

Visiting my sister and Dad in Cape Town we also rented...Jump to full entry
Nov 24, 2011 - Happy Thanksgiving!
On Tuesday we eventually arrived at our destination near Tania’s home. We are staying at Sonrise Palms Christian RV Park which is about 25 minutes away from their house. This is the most expensive RV Park that we have stayed at in years!! $44 per night and that’s the Good Sam’s price ...... outrageous, and when we mentioned that we thought it was daylight robbery we were informed “welcome to the Space Coast”. That’s just a cop out - we live in Florida every winter and don’t pay nearly that amount for a campsite. Oh well ....... It was good...Jump to full entry
