Suwannee River, White Springs, FL

Gerry and I couldn't get our act together this morning to head out of Gulf Shores.  We really enjoy the area and didn't want to go, but we have lots of miles ahead of us so we didn't have much choice.  I am sure we will come back here and visit longer the next time.

We drove 345 miles today and arrived at the Suwannee Valley campground after dark.  It is a good thing that we did or we most likely would have kept on driving.  It has sites in between the pine trees and tree roots all over the place.  The site is far from level and we tilt toward the passenger side.  I am afraid to level it more with the condition of the windshield.  It may just pop out.   

They have pull through sites, but tell you to disconnect your tow vehicle before you enter the park.  That sort of defeats the idea of having a pull through so you don't have to unhook the tow vehicles.  Strange!

We will be moving down the road again bright and early Sunday and head for Savannah or Charleston depending on the weather and our mood.  That is the nice thing about a motor home.  Wherever you stop your are at home.

We did pick up one geo cache at a rest area today.  We stopped for lunch and I got to wondering if a cache was nearby.  Yep.  There was one about 90 ft from us.  How convenient.  It was hidden in a pay phone at the building in the rest area.  How often do you see pay phones anymore?   Not very often.

It was a pleasant day with a little wind but not enough to slow us down.  Unleaded gas prices ranged from $3.75 to $4.09 along the way with Florida having the higher prices.  They always are the highest on our trips down south.  Hope I have enough to get to Georgia and see some relief, but I am not optimistic.
