After leaving Wisconsin on January 2nd, we are heading back to Hudson / New Richmond; over 5,200 miles this year so far.
We had a very nice 4 nights in Cape San Blas (close to Port St. Joe) staying at RV on 30E. Walks on the beach every day and wonderful sunsets. We enjoyed tacos at Peachy’s Beach Eats. We really enjoy this place!
Thursday, we headed north 381 miles (8 hours) to Goat Island Brewery (Harvest Host) in Cullman, Alabama. We enjoyed a flight of beer before retiring for a night of boondocking.
Friday, we travelled 339 miles (7 hours) to Marion Campground in Marion, IL. A nice overnight stay. Quiet and easy.
Saturday, we travelled 238 miles (5 hours) to Scott and Nany’s in Barry, IL. We will hang out for a couple of days and head north on Monday. Plan to get back to Hudson / New Richmond on the Tuesday the 9th of May.
We plan to spend the summer in Wisconsin enjoying friends and family and starting the next phase of our adventure – buying land and building our summer home. Stay tuned for updates.
We finished out last week at Camp Caravan RV Park. A well run park outside of Waco. Great location and we will return to the area.
On Monday, we traveled to Martin Dies Jr. State Park outside of Jasper, Texas. We met up with our good friend, Al Jordan, who was staying close by. What a great state park with lots of cypress and magnolia trees. Highly recommend this park. We kayaked 5 miles along the Paddling Trails. and hiked. Kelly even played pickleball with Al.
Pam and I hiked the Slough Trail which features 16 Bridges. We actually counted 17.
On Thursday, we left Texas, and headed to New Orleans where we stayed at the French Quarter RV Resort. This is a well run park right outside of the French Quarter. In fact, it is a quick 5 – 10 minute walk. Although very expensive ($120/night), the location was worth it.
We arrived back in Palm Creek on January 31st. We are back in site 398 and are enjoying the sun and activities.
Kelly started golf with his Wednesday group. We played at Sewailo Golf Club in Tucson. Nice course that is part of a casino. Nice weather and Kelly shot a nice little 84 (from the senior tees).
Both Pam and Kelly took a Pickleball Lesson (2 hours) and really enjoyed it. So, we both joined the Palm Creek Pickleball Club and signed up for “Round Robin” events. Pam’s is next week. Kelly played on Saturday which consisted of 6 games played in 2 hours. Great exercise.
Pam took a Wine & Painting course on Saturday. It was 2 hours, and she used acrylic paint to create a masterpiece. A new talent she is discovering which she inherited from her mother – Jan.
Pam and Kelly also signed up for the workshop club. Pam starts her beginner’s woodworking class next Monday.
The weather turned cool (55-degree highs / 30-degree lows). But sunny. Not hiking as much as we should. A couple of 4 and 5 mile hikes in the Tuscon Mountain Park. The RV Park is right next to the park.
We traveled back to Benson, AZ to visit the SKP Coop (we are on the waiting list) and have lunch at Mi Casa with Terry and Kirk. We reaffirmed how much we like the SKP park and Mi Casa Restaurant. For fun, we stopped at the local San Pedro Golf Course for a drink. Nice place with great views.
We toured a couple of Robson 55+ retirement communities, but decided we are not ready yet to buy in Arizona. Going to focus on our future property on Squaw Lake in Wisconsin.
Due to an incoming winter storm, we took off south a day earlier than planned. We left an hour after Kelly arrived back in Hudson after the Packers Game New Year’s Day.
We drove the 1,600 miles in 3 nights / 4 days to get to Chandler, AZ to pick up our Airstream Trailer. We had warranty work done at the dealership. They did a great job with everything. The awing now works great now.
