Fort Myers

We were up at sunrise, and took Whiskey for a short walk. We wanted to get on the trails before they got busy.

Nice campground!

What a nice campground we stayed at last night. It wasn't very busy, so we were lucky to be able to get a waterfront site. In fact, there were enough sites for probably 25 RV's, yet our nearest neighbour was probably 150 feet away!

Got up at 7am. Temperature inside Sherman was 66F (19C). Gotta love it! Made a coffee and tea, and drove into Bryceville only about 2 miles away. Parked up at the public library using their free internet, and having some breakfast.

Made it to Florida

Whiskey let us sleep in this morning! We didn`t get up until 7:40am. But it`s raining, and so I guess she just didn`t see the need to get outside. We`re headed for the Florida border today, which is about 120 miles away. If the rain keeps up, we`ll probably just keep driving.

Headed for Georgia

Well, we were up at 7am this morning and got things ready to hit the road again. We sure enjoyed our time at Pete and Pam's lake house, and wish we could have stayed longer. But we've still got some miles to do before getting to Fort Myers on Sunday.

We are relaxing today! Well, not really. Ruth did some laundry, and I washed and polished one side of Sherman. And we did make it out for a walk with Whiskey on an old logging road not far from here.

Charleston, South Carolina

We were up at about 6:45am, just in time to see the sunrise. I went to take a picture, and then realized we had left the camera inside the cottage. Pete and Pam have each gone to work, but they left us a key. It is starting out to be a beautiful sunny day, and we’ll head off to Charleston in Pete’s car after we have some breakfast.

Heading further south

We have about 700 miles (1,100 kms) to go to get to Fort Myers, and we have to be there for next Sunday. So about 100 miles (160 kms) a day on average, and that's about the speed we like to travel! We're going to do this entire distance without getting on the interstate highway.

A sunny day of baseball

Had a great sleep last night. Whiskey even let us sleep in to just after 7am! Another blue sky sunny day, perfect for another couple of winning baseball games. Hopefully not too windy though.

Off to do a timeshare tour

Up before 7am, and at 8am we'll head over to the timeshare place. Our appointment is at 9am, but we'll show up a bit early and eat some of their food!

Myrtle Beach by lunchtime!

Well, that's the plan anyhow. Had a good night sleep behind the church. Up early this morning, and it's sunny! In fact, the forecast is for sunshine and warmer temperatures for the next 5 days!

North Carolina

Didn’t have a great sleep. It sounded like something was on the roof. I know I had parked under a tree, but the branches were well above the roof. I looked out the back window, and the branches were covered in heavy wet snow! Every time the wind blew, a branch would knock against the roof making it sound like something was running around up there.

Just outside Maryland

I just posted the update to yesterdays blog, so you can read that first! We got up just after 6am this morning, and hit the road early to get out of Harrisburg traffic before it started getting busy. So we drove for an hour or so and are posting this from a Staples wi-fi hotspot just outside of Gettysburg. Temperature on a sign we saw leaving Harrisburg was 37F (3C).

We're on our way!

Ok so we are finally on the road! But before getting to today a quick run down on yesterday. Wow what a busy day it was. Lots of packing and cleanning. Luckily the weather was better than they forceast, nice bright sunny skies. Kevin got the furnance turned on in Sherman with no problem and loaded the bikes onto the back, then we went to install the water pump and one of the fittings broke off.
