Alabama

In early November, we spent 9 days at the Rainbow Plantation Escapees Park in Sundale, Alabama. A simple, low-cost park with not a lot of amenities. We played golf at Gulf Links Golf Course and One Club Gulf Shores but pretty much just relaxed.

We drove up to Mobile, to visit Battleship Memorial Park where the battleship USS Alabama is on display. What an amazing ship and a really good self-guided tour. It is amazing to think of the life sailors lived on this ship in WWII. We also toured the USS Drum a World War II Gato-class submarine.

Prairie Creek Campground

On our way south we only spent 2 nights at Prairie Creek Campground, but boy was it nice. The sites were huge (site 16), and most were on the lake. Many fishermen and hunters (hunting squirrels). This is a Corps of Engineers campground (federal). They are always setup great and run well.

On Saturday, we arrived at Rainbow Plantation Park (Escapees) in Summerdale for a week in southern Alabama. 80 degrees by day and 50 degrees by night. Nice!

Headed North – Back Home

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.

Dauphin Island, Alabama

We spent the past week relaxing on Dauphin Island in Alabama. This is a nice, quiet island get away. We are staying at the Pelican Nest RV & Campground. A small RV park across the street from the beach.

We have enjoyed walking on the beach on the nice days, and relaxing on the rainy days. We rented bikes 1 day and rode to the west end of the island. We also drove to the east end of the island and enjoyed the bird sanctuary at Shell Mound Park.

Sunday, we head to Florida for 4 final days of beach time before heading north.

Pam and I made it to Alabama. Another state visited. We are staying at Hodges Winery & Vihttps://hodgeswinery.com/neyard. A harvest host.

Great setup with 4 RV full hookup sites with a concrete pads, 50amp electric, sewer and water at not cost except to visit the winery.

We were able to taste all their wines and bought 2 bottles. Highly recommend this location for an overnight stay.
