75 Days!

Location: Williston, FL (High 74, Low 36)

IMG_4117It has been 75 days since we pulled up stakes and skedaddled out of NY to escape the remainder of the winter.


It has been a wonderful ten weeks.




After a nice few days in Savannah, GA, we moved on to Jacksonville, FL, where we stayed for the month of February.




Our main reason for the month-long stay in Jacksonville was to be able to spend some time with Harry’s sister Linda.






We also took a couple trips to St. Augustine.











On March 1st, we traveled a bit further south to Williston, FL, a small town near the city of Gainesville.



It’s really hard to pick a favorite experience here, but close to the top has to be our hike at Barr Hammock Preserve.










Joining in the fun for the Florida chapter Heartland rally and meeting some new friends is way up there too!










Oh, and I can’t forget about going to the Botanical Gardens and Cedar Key! It sure has been such a wonderful two and a half months.



Our time in the south for this winter is coming to an end. On Monday morning, we will put wheels to the road and head out for Woodbine, GA, our first stop on our northward trek. April is going to be a whirlwind month with a trip to Pennsylvania for a Heartland Owners campout, after which we will head to South Dakota to get our drivers licenses.

It’s just about time to get this show back on the road! Smile


  1. Hope you have a wonderful time at the Heartland rally. Our Montana rally was in Lancaster, PA, last June, and we enjoyed the area very much. You'll be next-door neighbors (sort of) while you're in PA. Sounds like you have a great summery planned!

  2. You and Harry look so happy in all your photos. I think this life agrees with you. Enjoy your summer and travel safe.

  3. Safe travels up to Woodbine. Florida sure went by fast!

  4. Such an amazing lifestyle that you finally are getting to enjoy. We have been wandering around now for seven years, just loving every minute of it.
