Leaving The Sunshine State

Oh yes, we are ready to pack it up and move North Carolina for a couple of weeks.  It seems the weather here in parts of Florida has been experiencing a sort of "heat wave".   The daily temperatures in the Orlando area have been in the upper 80's for the last 4 weeks or so.  We have stayed cool by going to the pool, staying in the coach's awning shade and bike riding early in the morning.

We have been busy working on our coach's remodel/maintenance list this winter.  Over the last 2 months Ronnie completed the Aqua-Hot's annual service, we added a water softener and installed a supplemental brake and brake-away system on the Jeep.  We also had our dining room chairs reupholstered.  Ron didn't get all he wanted complete on his "wish list" but that's alright.  We will need something to work on when we come back to Florida next winter!

Front wheel bearings were repacked at Josam's of Orlando. 

 We enjoyed lunch at the Cherry Pocket in Lake Wales with Gerald and Mary of Wilson, NC.

We had a wonderful time at The Freezer in Homosassa with Ron and Barbara of Cedar Point, NC.

There were lots of laughs of course while sharing full time RVing experiences with John and Suzanne of the Itchy Nomads.  We had another good meal at our favorite pizza place, Floridino's in Lake Hamilton.

Our future travel plans are to "mooch-dock" in Mom's yard in North Carolina the first 2 weeks in May.  We have scheduled dentist appointments, we'll visit family and finalize our summer plans.  When we leave North Carolina, we plan to travel west to Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. 

More later.

  3. about time you are movin on. I am much better and we are now in Palm Creek golf rv resort in Casa Grande, Az. It is a beautiful resort, alas all the people went north. We paid for one week and got one free so we will hang around. Need to get some work done on the car and an rv tech is coming today to check out the slow leak in our fresh water tank. After this we will probably go up towards Flagstaff, and tour that area and of course Sedona. Hope to see you out west on the road this year, maybe you will stop at our winter home in the ca desert, nice place.
