Florida Pan Handle

In late November, we spent 3 weeks in the pan handle of Florida. We spent the first 2 weeks at Coastline RV Resort in Eastpoint Florida. One of the best run and maintained RV Resorts we have ever been to. They have East and West Parks which are sperated by another property. We played pickleball almost everyday and enjoyed the fitness room. Their showers are outstanding and the people were just great. We stayed in site 26.

The next week, we spend on the ocean at Camping on the Gulf in Miramar Beach, Florida. They have RV sites on the beach; we stayed in the second row. Unfortunately, the weather was not great and we were only able to take a few walks on the pristine white sand beach. The sites by the ocean are very tight but we had good neighbors.

We are now in Austin, Texas for a week before starting to make our way to Arizonia for Christmas; we will be there for 3 months.

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.

Kingsley Plantation

We visited the Kingsley Plantation outside of Jacksonville, Florida (a national park) and took the audio tour of the property. It is a very interesting story in history; a little different than what we think of the history books. A humbling experience to see how the slave life was when Florida was owned by the Spanish and later when Florida became a United States Territory.

Here is a link to a brief overview

After visiting the plantation, we went to the Sandollar Restaurant for a drink and snack before taking the St. John’s River Ferry over the river.

A fun and educational day.

East Coast of Florida

This week, we traveled 300 miles East to Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in Jacksonville, FL. Tucked into the jungle. Site 58 with full hookups for $30/day. The park is on a freshwater lake and the Pasific Ocean.

The foliage is thick and there are alligators! Lots to do – click here for a map

Tuesday, we rode our bikes 8 miles on the Beach; it is huge and very long. Going north, we ran into a military “Do Not Enter” sign, so we turned around.

Florida Panhandle – Again

On Tuesday, we arrived back at RV on 30E in the Panhandle of Florida. This is the same RV lot we stayed at in early 2021 just outside of Port St. Joe.

The beach is fantastic with soft white sand. The sunsets are great looking out into the Gulf of Mexico.

We rode the eBikes to St. Joe Peninsula State Park on Wednesday; nice simple park with a beach and warnings to watch for Alligators.
