Shorts, Flip-flops and t-shirts!

We have left the cold weather and arrived close to the perfect weather.  We are now in Jacksonville, FL at Pelican Roost.  We will only be here for a few days before heading to Orlando Thousand Trails and that general area for the Winter.

Can’t wait to see Sandy, Ron and Sam and to get some serious gaming time in.  These are the folks we learned to play Settlers of Catan with.  Daisy and I will probably play some today.  It is very comfortable.

I have shorts, t-shirt and sandals on and Daisy is dressed in caprices and a t-shirt.  Wonder what the weather is like back in PA.  When we arrived yesterday the temps were in the mid 80’s.  Actually needed both AC units on to cool down the rig.

We must have gone through a time warp yesterday.  The trip was 188 miles from South Point, SC to Jacksonville, FL.  We left at 10:30 AM and didn’t get into the campground until just about 4 PM.  Only one stop for fuel and lunch about 45 minutes or so.  We had no travel or delays and were traveling around 60-65 MPH the whole time.  I can not figure out where the extra time went.  But it was a HOT trip.  Have to figure out where all the heat comes from in the front of the rig.  Really drains the energy from me.

We ate dinner at the base golf course last night.  I had fish and chips, Daisy had a steak dinner.  The prices were good, but the food and service need some attention.  We won’t be going back during our stay.

For those of you who are able to stay at military famcamps, this one is OK.  There are only about 44 sites here.  We have a pull through with a concrete pad, FHU and 50 amp service.  Washer and dryer are free as is WIFI.  Camp Host met us as we pulled in.  He seemed pretty lonely and very talkative.  He leaves in January for the West coast and a cruise.  I would love to take another cruise.  Maybe I need to put Daisy to work for a while, hehe.
