As we were leaving the truck stop, I asked Stu if he had picked up our SPOT. We use it to let family know we are okay as we travel (and hopefully never have to use the HELP or 911 functions). We normally set it outside to locate our position as we set up. Since we were setting up after dark in Ocala, we waited till morning.
Yup, you guessed it...it was still sitting on the post back at our campsite. My biggest concern was some kid picking it up and pressing buttons willy-nilly, calling out rescue services. GULP! So we did a u-turn and headed back to Ocala to hopefully find it sitting where Stu left it....and it was. Phew!
Back on the road, the weather was nice and definitely the warmest we had felt in weeks. Not a lot of traffic which was a pleasure. One thing we've noticed is the lack of RVers on the road as compared to the last two times we've traveled to FL in Nov/Dec. Plus all the RV parks we pass are almost empty. Last year seemed to be much better...hoping it's just folks delaying until after the holidays.
We stopped at Cracker Barrel for a late lunch and continued southerly. Oh, I made Stu feel better...I left my purse on the back of my chair. LOL! Our route was US 27 and other than a couple of towns with too many traffic lights, we had no delays. It was almost dark when we finally arrived at M RV Resort. Our site is plenty deep for our rig, leaving room to unload the bikes. The Freightliner has to be parked beside us, but that's okay. I'll get some photos of the park when the sun comes back tomorrow...today is rainy and cool.
We'll be here until the end of the month, then we move back north a bit to Lakeland at the Lazy Dazy Retreat. We'll be there for Jan and Feb. March is still up in the air. We are thinking about finding a spot closer to Vero Beach for the first two weeks, then going to the Escapee Park in Bushnell (Sumter Oaks) until it's warm enough to head back to TN and our property.
The weather is supposed to be sunny and in the 70's starting tomorrow and over the weekend. We'll get the bikes out and get in some riding!!! We can't wait....Sadie is excited, too. She wrote about her trip here in Sadie Speaks. LOL!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
