Jun 3, 2017 - Day 1

Day 1 was very uneventful. Our goal was simply to leave Florida behind. The weather was beautiful .. no rain until after we got to Eufaula and set up. No issues with the RV and Jim said he couldn't even tell he was pulling our toad. We took the scenic route avoiding all major cities ... the Georgia and Alabama countryside was beautiful ... loved the old southern homes. Heading north tomorrow ..

May 8, 2015 - Eufaula, Alabama

We say our goodbyes and Thank Yous to Merv. We are on the road again. It is a difficult route today. We take Route 82 West. This is also known as the Southern Georgia Parkway. For most of the day it is a four lane divided highway with no traffic. We see a lot of Georgia pine trees. We see a lot of signs for pecans and boiled peanuts. It is an easy drive. We cross Lake Eufaula (created by Walter F George dam on the Chattahoochee River.) We arrive in Eufaula, Alabama. We arrive an hour early as we are now in the Central Time Zone. It is a...

Dec 13, 2010 - Maxwell AFB - Union Springs, Eufaula, Clayton and Brudidge

What’s with the weather here in Central Alabama anyway? We had to get more propane, we’ve had to pull in our hoses to keep them from freezing, and we’ve been running the heat pretty much 24/07 since arriving here. This morning it was 22 when we came to the front of the coach and could see the thermometer! Brrrrrr, not quite what we expected when we decided to extend our stay here at Maxwell! And then yesterday, the winds were gusting up to 25 mph and think they did pretty much the same today – however, today we saw sunshine and blue skies...

Mar 30, 2010 - Providence Canyon & Alabama Mansion

We drove over the state line back to Lumpkin, Georgia to visit Providence Canyon State Park. Due to poor farming practices by the early settlers the soft soil began washing away when trees were cleared to plant crops. By 1850, ditches three to five feet deep had been cut into the land. Today some of them are as deep as 150 feet. Hiking trails circle the rim of the canyon as well as descend to the floor. The Rim Loop affords views into the ditches and the layers of soil. A walk on the canyon floor is through orange Georgia clay. I spent...

Jun 16, 2008 - Eufaula, AL Ants

Ant Invasion We found a very nice site right next to the water. Dianne had visions of sitting in a chair and enjoying a day of relaxation. We went for a walk. When we returned we found the site full of ants. There was a rain the day before and the ants were looking for new homes. There was no spot on the site to set a chair without ants including the waters edge. John sprayed all the wheels, jacks, electric cord, and hose to prevent entry into the coach. We found a few inside and sprayed the route with a soap solution. It kills the ants and...

Apr 1, 2008 - On the Road again--

Happy April Fools day to all, It wasn’t really an April Fool but today we left Florida and headed north. It sure was hard to leave my girls but on we go to the next adventure. What a great winter season we had with family and our church family and all the other friends we have made in Florida. Only sorry we didn’t get to connect with Escapee friends from our class of 05, but they have a lot in Florida now so will try to touch base in Minnesota or next year in Florida. These crappy colds & coughs ,etc. have just kept coming back when you...

Feb 15, 2007 - Lakepoint SP Resort

Feb. 15, 2007 We arrive at Lakepoint SP Resort. It is very quiet here at this time of year. We find a few "snowbirds", mostly from MI & Canada. The weather turns colder and very windy but we enjoy our stay here. We see deer all over the campground. The deer drive Yoda nuts... Jim and his kayaking friends arrive and we enjoy spending time with them. These folks not only enjoy the kayaking - but - they also eat very well. We are grateful to join them. For awhile now, I have been having problems with my TV. I've had several other travelers...

Oct 6, 2005 - Eufaula, Alabama

When I finally crossed the state line from Florida into Alabama, I had the sense that the trip had finally begun. Impressions of Alabama - cotton, kudzu, and a few rolling hills. Fields of cotton waiting to be picked are so white, and could almost be mistaken for snow (I hope that's not an omen of things to come). Kudzo along the side of the road ensnarls everything in its path. I make my first planned stop in Eufaula, Alabama, a charming small town full of antebellum houses. I am reminded that it pays to ask the local Chamber of Commerce...
