Escape from Winter - 2012 travel blog


It took us less than 45 minutes to move from Gulf Shores to Big Lagoon State Park. Originally we had wanted to stay a bit further east on the Florida panhandle in Destin which has a state park we enjoyed last year, but we tried to make the reservation too late. The park was full. It's just as well that we are here. It's a bit closer to home and home will be our next destination. When we planned to come here, we were just going to do our usual beach, golf, bike experience, but our stay here has become much more.

We have rendezvoused with friends Geoff & Ellyn who will travel to Alaska with us this summer. We have done some planning via email and phone conversations, but it's so much easier face to face with maps and guide books in hand. We first met Geoff & Ellyn, who listen to our RV podcast, when they tracked us down in Cape Cod. Now they are full timer RV'ers and could produce their own podcast. Last winter we spent a month visiting them at the campground in Sarasota, FL that has become their second home.

Today about all we accomplished was to identify all the things we still need to decide. We'll see how far we get...
