We're headed for the Ocala area, but again, depending on the weather, we may continue further south. They're calling for thundreshowers throughout the day, but tomorrow is supposed to be nice. we'll play it by ear.
Today's trip plan
Well, we made it to Ocala...and it's been pouring rain all morning. And it's still raining. So we'll keep driving...
Now in "The Villages". A retirement community where all the old folks zip around in these golf cart things. Please don't ever let that happen to me. But, they have a nice scenic Walmart here, and apparently we can stay the night. There are no signs, but I went in to check and there was a big lineup at the customer service. I asked the welcome guy, and he said "well, everybody else does", but he acted like he didn't like the fact that RV's can park for the night. Can't seem to get any internet there, so we drove over to a nearby church and got an unsecured signal from somewhere.
Only 180 miles (288 kms) to Fort Myers. Temperature is 66F (19C) and the rain has stopped, but it's overcast. Supposed to be decent weather the next few days.
Here's one of those golf cart things that everbody drives around here...
