Following Hurricane Matthew - Winter 2017 travel blog


A morning drive brought us to The Great Outdoors, the campground resort where one site belongs to us. The beautiful fall colors were replaced by pine and palm trees. In northern Florida we saw more signs of the hurricane. Roads signs were twisted into modern art or laying on the ground. Road crews worked alongside I-95 picking up vegetation that had been uprooted by the storm.

We weren't at TGO five minutes when we were greeted by listeners to our RV Navigator podcast. They have recently bought two sites here and one is across the street from us. This site has a small building and they have been busy putting together new IKEA furniture and making it theirs. We look forward to getting to know them better.

Our site is in good shape, but will need a little work as well. The concrete pad should be power washed and the roof on the shed is full of fallen vegetation which is rapidly turning into a roof top garden. We have an appointment with an internet provider tomorrow who will really make us feel at home with download speeds similar to what we have at home.

The temperature here is perfect. My definition of perfect is that it is pleasant to sit outside in the shade and read a book. The biweekly activity booklet is full of fun things to do. That book may remain unread.
