Continuing south, and trying to avoid the storms

Kentucky was still cold, so we had one more night of running the furnace, but as we continued south on Friday, the temperature improved.


We had gotten a call Thursday night from our friends in Georgia, and after finding out that their property was right near our intended stopover location for Friday, we made it our destination.  With our early start and great driving conditions, we arrived at their place by 4pm.

Parked at Tim & Denise's House

They got us situated in front of the barn, hooked up to 50 amp electric, and topped off our fresh water tank.  We were excited to catch up with Tim & Denise again (we last saw them 2 years ago in Florida), and we enjoyed their company and hospitality.

They showed us around the area, and took us out to dinner at their favorite restaurant.  We were looking forward to spending Saturday with them, too, but the weatherman was calling for some nasty storms on Sunday in Georgia, so we decided that we needed to take advantage of the good weather on Saturday to get into Florida.  After a leisurely morning, we said our good-byes and got back on the road.  We’re hoping to be able to spend some time together in south Florida this winter.

Driving through Atlanta is always a challenge,

but fortunately, on this Saturday morning it wasn’t too bad.

Downtown Atlanta










Bryce has been driving the car, while I ride in the truck with Tom, and he’s doing really well . . . we’re a big target to follow!

Our plan was to get into Florida and stay put for 2 nights, waiting out Sunday’s storms.  We ended up choosing the Suwanee River Rendezvous RV Resort, although it ended up being quite a bit further from the freeway than we expected.  It was dark, and it was raining by then, so Tom and Bryce were not happy campers!

Sad smile

It’s actually a nice RV Park, though, with really nice facilities and friendly people.  Lucky for us, they have a restaurant/bar that’s open on the weekends, so we were able to go there for dinner.  The food was inexpensive and good, and we were entertained by karaoke/trivia night.  I even bought Bryce a milkshake to make up for the crappy drive!

After church on Sunday, we went out for a walk and got a few pictures.

The campground borders the Suwanee River, and there is a bike trail that parallels the river, all the way to the historic Hal W. Adams Bridge.









Way down upon the Suwanee River . . .

If the weather were nicer, this would be a nice park and area to spend some time in . . . but, we move on tomorrow . . .

  1. Good to see you're in Florida :-). Hopefully we can get together at some point. I may have missed where you will be for the winter, or are you a moving target?


Thanks for reading! We'd love to hear your comments!
