Location: Williston, FL (High 84, Low 54)
For the past couple weeks we have been getting to know other Heartland owners that arrived early for the rally. We met Larry and Sam, fellow Landmark owners and brand-new fulltimers when they arrived here early in March.
Last week we went to try out a restaurant in the area that had been recommended to us.
Here is Harry about to try gator tail bites for the first time!
Something else that happened this past week was the completion of a repair job. I don’t think I ever posted about the little issue we had with our slide topper. When we arrived here and put our living room slide out, we heard a weird, not-so-pleasant noise and checked out our slide to see a not-so-pleasant sight.
Turned out that the awning had a bend in the center, probably right from when it was installed. The tension on the awning eventually caused the spring to snap, which probably was the not-so-pleasant noise we heard. The parts were ordered and we were glad that we had already planned to be here for the month.
Our new awning arrived this past Wednesday…
…and Friday they installed it.
Yay! We are happy to once again have all our parts in order.
We also had a nice coffee get together on Friday morning. Randy and Karen are interested in a possible fulltiming lifestyle, so we got together with them and Larry and Sam to chat about our respective journeys.
We’ve also been to the usual “too much good food” potluck and a yummy catered bbq dinner. It’s really been an awesome week.
Now we are sadly waving good-bye as people head out in all directions. We are here for one more week, but the place is sure going to seem empty now after such a great time with so many great new friends.
