Feb 28, 2017 - Ducks and Golf Carts
Ducks and Golf Carts On Sunday, we left the Hitchin’ Post and made it to our new location – Sunset King Lake RV Resort in DeFuniak Springs – about 50 miles to the West. We are in Site M4 and have really close neighbors on one side – they are pulled in the opposite direction so our utilities and their utilities share a long strip of land planted with azaleas. On the door side of Mo, we share a large open space with our other neighbors. They are a couple from upper New York and he is almost deaf. She hollers at him ALL THE TIME – Charlie!...Jump to full entry
May 21, 2016 - And Their Off....
Our journey began under partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures as we departed our community in Ocala. The trip north on I-75 and then west on I-10 was about 325 miles and was very good with great weather and light traffic. We are staying at Sunset King RV Resort in DeFuniak Springs in the western panhandle of Florida (or South Alabama as it is sometimes referred to). The park is about 10 miles from I-10 and is situated on Sun King Lake. Since we are spending only one night here and had pull thru sites so we didn't even unhook the cars....Jump to full entry
Apr 29, 2015 - DeFuniak Springs, FL
(Patti again!) First: a note about ”Springs” In Florida,several communities carry the name of the town followed by “Springs.” We have been surprised to learn of the existence of these springs in so many areas of Florida. And not only springs, but an extensive, interconnected cave system, often accessible only by scuba diving into the springs. The cave divers are a pretty experienced and courageous lot - they wear side mounted tanks to allow diving in “cramped” passages. Not for the faint of heart! Yesterday dawned gray and overcast (not a...Jump to full entry
Apr 27, 2015 - Leaving the Suwannee ...
Patti checking in ... On April 27 we left behind the Suwannee River Resort — and also a multitude of gnats, no-seeum's, and some very persistent love-bugs! The latter so named because they fly in tandem; they also make an incredible mess of the coach windshield and are difficult to wash off unless you do so soon after you are resettled. John says that's because their bodies are slightly acidic with a pH of 6.5 (more information than you needed to know?) While at the Resort we learned (from Grandma Susie, co-owner with husband Frank) about...Jump to full entry

May 1, 2012 - DeFuniak Springs, FL
Hi All, We traveled from MS to AL and into FL today. Made a stop at The Pensacola's Naval Air Station Museum. It was a good time and a lot of memories of "our" Navy days. Hope this finds everyone well. Sorry to say, but the weather is still nice. Until later Jim & KathyJump to full entry
Feb 17, 2012 - Wine, Chatauqua and Goatfeathers
Feb 17, 2012 Wine, Chatauqua and Goatfeathers DeFuniak Springs, Florida, United States Hugh and Carol, being the great houseguests they are, happened upon a local winery and bought a couple of bottles of wine to share. Since the wine was very tasty, they decided a repeat visit was in order to take home some gifts. (I have no way of knowing if the wine actually made it to the intended giftees but they did purchase a number of bottles). Anyway, we were on our way to DeFuniak Springs to visit the Chatauqua Winery. First item on the agenda,...Jump to full entry
Feb 26, 2011 - Juniper Lake RV Campground
// Juniper Lake RV Campground Defuniak Springs, FL // Saturday – February 26, 2011 Low Temperature: 69 degrees High Temperature: 83 degrees A TRAVEL DAY.... We were hooked up and ready to travel by 8:30 AM. I opted to travel via Hwy 27 instead of taking the I-75 route. I'm very glad I did. The road conditions were great; the traffic very light; and the scenery, I suspect, was much nicer than along I-75. Shortly after departing Williston, we ran into overcast skies and high fog. The temperature dropped about 10 degrees and stayed that way...Jump to full entry
May 7, 2010 - Warm weather+no solar=faster trip
Back on the road and across Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama and into Florida before it cooled down for the night. Lots of water, I think we drove over more water than land and I guess I even drove under some water when I took my turn and ended up driving through Mobile, Alabama. We both want to come back this way and go down along the coast again for some good seafood and great scenery but for now we need to get our new batteries and get over to the kids place to see them. We stopped tonight in De Funiak Springs; Florida at a Wal-Mart...Jump to full entry
Feb 21, 2009 - On the road again.
We really have nothing to report lately. Thursday and Friday we relaxed, read, watched tv, worked on the computer, and generally enjoyed our room. We had some rain on Thursday, but the weather continued mild. Friday we did enjoy a (for us) long walk on the beach. It was cool, but we had a good time watching the people and the birds. Some of the birds looked like they were attemping to sneak around behind Joyce to attack her, but she was ever vigilant so none of them got the drop on her. Late Friday afternoon the desk called about our...Jump to full entry
Nov 10, 2008 - Panama City has changed
Today was just a short drive over to a RV park just north of Panama City, Florida. When we were stationed at Fort Rucker, Alabama we used to come down on weekends to relax at the beach in Panama City. It was lots of fun then, small town and not too crowded. Times have really changed in the past 40 plus years. It has grown to a typical beach community. Way too big.Jump to full entry
Jun 6, 2008 - We're back on the road at last!
I must say yesterday was extremely traumatic. We had got down to the wire on our schedule, we'd been counting on getting the RV back by Wednesday evening …. Yeah I know, a pipe dream…. This would have given us 2 days to schlep back and forth loading and packing. Oh well it wasn’t to be. They eventually had 2 mechanics working on it to get it done by the end of the day on Thursday for us. Eventually at 5 pm, just before closing they were done and called us to come pay and collect it. We drove over and arrived at the cashiers desk just as...Jump to full entry
