Sunny and 75

Judy and I woke up to very chilly 25’ Thursday morning and the prospects of an even colder 23’ Friday morning our scheduled travel day. Neither of us looked forward to that.  So after a short 30 second discussion we made the decision to head south after Thanksgiving Dinner with her sister and her family. After getting our morning routine out of the way we got the RV ready to travel.  Of course I had all of the outside task and Judy took care of getting the inside ready, in the warmth of the RV.  Once the Cardinal was hitched to the truck I stopped by the dump station and we left the park. I parked the truck and RV in a church parking lot near her sister’s home. We drove the CRV over to her sister’s home.

We enjoyed a very good Thanksgiving dinner with Sheila and her family and Mike, Judy’s brother and his son.  We were very grateful for being able to join them for the holiday. The meal was soo good.

That is Judy’s extremely full plate!!

Judy and I left at 2:15 PM. We knew we would not drive straight through and planned to stop along the way.  The traffic was very light on I75S. Judy and I pulled into a rest area just south of Gainesville, FL. at 7:45PM. It had a few RVs and big rigs already parked. We slept in the Cardinal until 3:00 AM and left for the remaining 180 miles of the 420 mile trip

I pulled into Adelaide Shores RV Park in Avon Park at 7:20. The office was closed so we went to our RV site and set-up. While we were getting settled some of out friends stopped by to see us and invite us to that evening’s card game. We just relaxed the rest of the day until it was time to play cards.  I think we are going to get use to this “Sunny and 75” weather.

First Card night at Adelaide Shores !

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.
