May 29, 2019 - final thoughts from Savannah

Final thoughts from Savannah As the time winds down from our two-month stay in Savannah, we have a little time to look back on our stay. First and foremost, we have absolutely LOVED being this close to Adam, Laura and all 5 of the grandkids. Our travels across the country for the last 2+ years have been everything we could have imagined (and more) but spending time with family has been something we have missed greatly. We have soaked up all the hugs, snuggles, giggles, laughs and love to carry us through the next 5 months until we return...

2019 Life in our RV

May 22, 2019 - Family time in Savannah

The reason we decided to come to Savannah to workamp is because this is where Steve’s son Adam and his family live. Adam and Laura have five children ranging from 17 years old down to 3 years old. We wanted to spend more time close to them and what better way to do that than to be camping less than 15 minutes from where they live! We were excited that shortly after we arrived and settled into our site, Adam, Laura and the kids came over to visit and we had a cookout. The kids were kind of confused by the fact that Nonna and Grampa live in...

2019 Life in our RV

May 21, 2019 - Workamping in Savannah

We have been in Savannah Georgia for almost two months – that is the longest we have stayed in one place in the RV since we hit the road two and one-half years ago. When we first made the commitment to come here to workamp (more on that topic in a bit) I was a little concerned that we would get hitch-itch (the need to move on down the road). But I am happy to say that we have really enjoyed being here and although we are ready to move on, it is not because we have been bored. So, what have we been doing for the last two months? Well,...

2019 Life in our RV

Apr 30, 2019 - Old Historic Savannah

We drove a short ways up Interstate 95 yesterday and stopped at Hunter Army Airfield near Savannah, Georgia. We visited historic Savannah today. There is too much to cover in this little blog. But, if interested, come on down to Savannah to get first hand experience. I was taught that Georgia was originally a penal colony with people from debtors' prisons being shipped to the colonies. Not so. The idea was discussed, but King George II issued a charter to James Oglethorpe to establish a colony to act as a buffer against the Spanish military...

2019 Summer and Fall

Apr 23, 2019 - Savannah, GA - CreekFire RV Resort - site 16

Our maiden voyage for this trip was pretty well without incident and we arrived here in Savannah in about three hours for the 158 mile trip. We did take the new toll road (which is currently free) which is completed from I-10 south to about five miles from our home and it was a lot easier than going up through Orange Park which had been our previous route to get to I-95 north even though we missed the I-296 bypass and had to stay on I-10 all the way into Jacksonville. As it was all interstate with little to see Doris didn't take any travel...

Apr 3, 2019 - eating and walking

Over half of one of the tourist brochures we picked up about Savannah listed "must visit" restaurants. Savannah is a foodie town. We took this as a sign and booked a food tour. It's always fun to learn about a town through its cuisine. Savannah has a long and colorful history. It was part of the Georgia colony founded by James Ogelthorope in 1733 as a planned community. His intention was to provide a place for religious freedom and an opportunity for convicts who had been arrested for petty crimes like stealing food. The city was laid out...

Mar 30, 2019 - Creekfire

Our next destination after leaving Americus was Savannah Georgia. Savannah is a beautiful historic town on the Georgia coast. We have been to Savannah several times, and it happens to be where Steve’s son Adam and his family live. Adam is completing his medical residency at a local hospital in Savannah in June. Our oldest grandson, Cale, will be graduating from high school in May so we made plans to be in Savannah for a couple months to spend time with Adam, Laura and all five of the grandkids. Our first stop in Savannah was Creekfire...

2019 Life in our RV

Oct 22, 2018 - Byrd cookies and Ogeechee seafood festival

We went to the Ogeechee Seafood festival in Richmond Hill. The main event is the food and since we had just eaten we didn't partake of it but there were at least 20 vendors of various types of seafood. They had live entertainment - a good country band. The night before Travis Tritt performed so this is a well attended event. Multiple vendors were there and a midway with many rides. It was fun to watch people on them. We did find some Tupelo Honey from a vendor who produces it in this area - says it's a that NW Florida is the only place for...

2018 Trip

Oct 20, 2018 - Savannah tour and Fort Pulaski

There is so much to do in Savannah and we are in town on a Saturday that may have added to the crowd, but parking spaces are at a premium so would be difficult to walk the town without paying for all day parking at a lot. We did take the Hop on and off tour that allowed us to see the various squares in town and many historic buildings. Paula Deen has a large restaurant in Savannah - it's where she got her start. We considered going to eat there but decided against it due to parking problems and also reviews that were mixed. We then drove...

2018 Trip

Oct 19, 2018 - Savannah

We arrived at Red Gate Farm with no problem, however were taken off I95 earlier than I expected and drove on Hwy 21 which is divided but through town to get here. Later we heard from people next to us there was a major wreck and long back up on I95 so the Dezl may have known about it and helped us detour. We are in a back in but it's very spacious and easy to get into. The campground has horseback riding and a antebellum style mansion on site - in addition to the RV park they do weddings and other events. Very nice. There are 300 year old...

2018 Trip

Apr 27, 2018 - Savannah, GA

Well we finally got off our butts and decided to do a little sightseeing today. We drove into Savannah and did a lunch river cruise on the riverboat Georgia Queen. It was perfect weather with temps in the 70s and a gentle breeze. For a buffet, the food was pretty good. We had a reserved window table all to ourselves. Lunch was served before the cruise started. During the cruise the narrator did a good job with talking about history of the area on the river. We saw hundreds of BMW and Nissan vehicles staged for shipment to Australia and New...

Apr 26, 2018 - Savannah, GA

April 26 -29, Red Gate RV Park, Savannah, Georgia The distance between Brunswick and Savannah is only 78 miles. We arrived at Red Gate RV Park a little before 1pm and are pleased to be staying on a 400+ acre plantation. Horses, goats, chickens, bunnies and an enclosure of birds that’s almost out of sight but for the tall peacock. The RV sites are surrounded by vast grass lawns interspersed with ancient live oaks and magnolias draped with Spanish moss-all 10 minutes from downtown Savannah. The first day we drove into downtown Savannah to the...
