SPRING ROAD TRIP - APRIL 2012

This post was prepared when we started our 2012 travel adventure; however, I could not figure out the new rules of blogger.  So, instead of sending it to alphabet heaven, we're posting so you'll know we are alive, well, and continue to dance like no one is looking, so here goes!  Promise the next posting won't be so long!

Since you heard from us last, we enjoyed most of the winter with a flock of our snowbird friends at the Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in Webster, FL.  On April 1, we said our goodbyes, and if all goes well, we will return to Florida around the end of October.

 First stop was to enjoy a full week packed with fun with family/friends in Green Cove Springs, FL.Our grandchildren are growing up so fast and we just don't get to see them enough.  We treasure our time with everyone we get to see on our whirlwind trips through GCS.

An added bonus to our RV lifestyle are the friends we meet on the road, as well as Tiffin motor home owners we have met through the Tiffin RV Network (about 6000 members).  The second week in April we met about 80 coach owners at the Coastal Georgia RV Resort in Brunswick, GA for a few days. We also had an awesome visit with dear friends on St. Simons Island and enjoyed a spectacular low country boil on the beautiful Frederica River.  In our opinion, no trip to the Golden Isles would be complete without a shrimp fix at B and J's in Darien, GA. They offer some of the most delicious Georgia white shrimp and oysters that you'll ever eat.

 After the rally we traveled to Twin Oaks Campground near Perry, GA, then on to Flowery Branch, GA for 2 weeks at Old Federal COE on Lake Lanier.  We visited Chris and Lauren (younger daughter and son-in-law) for their 7th wedding anniversary (can you believe it?) as well as to assist in the plans of their new chiropractic office in Suwanee, GA.  We'll return in a couple of months to do lots of grunt work, help with decorating the new office, and get ready for their grand opening.

 We spent a couple of days in  Lake Guntersville area of Alabama on our way to northwest Alabama. After Lake Guntersville, we stopped at  McFarland Park.  Florence, AL, one of our favorite cities in Alabama.  This post was written in Red Bay, AL while waiting for our annual service appointment at Tiffin Motorhomes. A trip to Red Bay wouldn't be complete without adding additional accessories while you're waiting on service!  You may not notice the new lights inside the lower galley cabinets OR the Winegard Road Trip In-Motion Satellite on the roof , but they are there.
Yes, RV commandeered a fork lift!

We would love to hear from you.  We miss all of you.  Hope to talk to you soon so leave a comment if you have a moment.  We've been trying to figure out the new format of blogger, and  plan to post more frequently.    Lots of exciting things on the way.  Blogger changed the rules in November so it has taken a while to get used to how to do this again.  Talk soon ....LYMI!
